It takes courage to wait for God to move.
If life were a puzzle, how would you react to the incomplete picture and missing puzzle pieces?
Last summer, I watched my mom tackle two different jigsaw puzzles. The first puzzle was a challenge but certainly seemed doable. She worked at it in her free time, allowed others the joy of helping and then voila! It was done. We celebrated the victory and moved on.
But the second was a 3D puzzle of ocean creatures with slightly varying shades of blue on the majority of the pieces. To us it was the BIG DADDY of all puzzles with the added challenge of a few missing pieces, even a few from the border. I walked away after five minutes, choosing the tranquility of reading a book instead of the dizzying sea of pieces. My stepfather did the same. Not mom. She never gave up. She worked at it the entire week of vacation.
