I love the intricate beauty and detail of stained glass windows. It is a big reason I emulated that look on my banner.
To create stained glass requires a craftsman with the artistic skill to not only make a workable design but to have the skills to fit those intricate pieces together. The beauty of each piece is highlighted by the selection of colors and style chosen, and that distinct variation makes each window a unique piece of art.
When put in its place, the stained glass filters the light, shapes it and colors it in a multitude of ways.
God, the ultimate craftsman, has a unique design for each of us in the body of Christ. The colored components that make me, me, are different than that the components that make you, you. But, the same Light illuminates the beauty of the design and tells a story through us.
Some of the hues and colors in my unique design are…
Food fan. Wife of a crazy in love with me man. Wannabe gardener. COFFEE & DARK CHOCOLATE CONSUMER. Believer in walking, talking therapy. Crazy night time dreamer. Homeschool graduate mom. ADD brain struggler. Part time blogger. Sometimes known as Mild Mannered Missionary Mary. SIMPLE SERVANT OF THE MOST HIGH GOD. Word of God lover.
I see God’s hand in every area of my life. He is much like the lead frame that holds the colors of my stained glass life together. Sometimes, my mind nearly combusts to take it all in. And that is why I write.
My favorite Scripture verse is:
“Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and mighty things you do not know.” Jeremiah33:3
I desperately long to know great and mighty things. And then write those words. Apart from Him, the things I know pale in comparison.
