I'm pondering a word today - altered. Webster's New World Dictionary gives the meaning as:
1. to change; make different; modify
Altered things are very popular right now in the art world. But I am wondering how much of my life I have "altered". I was designed by God to be salt and light for Him. I have chosen to alter that plan so many times. The only altering I really want in my life is what God chooses to do.
I was listening to a cd Favor - What Money Can't Buy. Before I had finished the cd I found myself on my knees weeping before the Lord in prayer.
The "Altered" pic includes two dimes that I found on my walk. And you are probably wondering what does the other pic have to do with altered? Those are also found objects I've come across on my walking. I can't believe I picked up the boxers with money signs and diamonds on them. They were brand new and I have a feeling someone lost these things out of their backback. I only hope they weren't their only pair. The slippers were found at a bus stop on the day I walked in the pouring down rain. Believe it or not but I am using the slipper parts to include in my "green" 5x5 quilt for Quilting Arts. (And yes I did wash them) I have been thinking about all the trash that gets placed in the dumps bc its not recycable. What am I taking for granted, what has been granted to me? Am I a good steward of things God has assigned to me?
I will continue to ponder these things today as I work on my projects.
