You are allowed to be both a masterpiece and a work in progress, simultaneously.
Deep in my heart is an undone space. G. Hill
It brims with colors yet to be brushed. ----G. Hill
. . . and planted with a light, ripening with purpose.
For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them. -----Ephesians 2:10
Unless you try to do something beyond what you have already mastered, you will never grow into your own colors. ------Ralph Waldo Emerson
From Gloria: We are reminded how beautifully we are made and yet still being made. I smile when I think about checking a cake for doneness: when it springs back to touch. We are like that. We spring back. And still bloom. In color.
