Shapes



I love this shape. I love black and white although I have never worked in it but I long to make a black and white quilt. I found a pack of paperclips yesterday at Walmart on sale for .75 that was in this shape. Of course I had to buy them if not for their shape I loved the yellow color. I thought about putting them on a project I am working on but the truth of the matter is I'm not going to make the deadline. But its a trade that I didn't sign up for yet. Just wanted to see if I could get my idea into completion.

That brings me to a deeper "shape." What shape am I in spiritually. I really didn't like how I came across in the wedding pics. My waistline seems to be non-existent at this time. I stopped exercising and look what happens. That's about my physical shape. But truly, God is readying me to look at my shape spiritually. I don't think my flesh likes where this is going. But I say "let God be God!!" That said He is making decisions for me that I would not have made for myself. Stay tuned for some tough blogging in days ahead.

How ironic. I'm in decent shape physically, but not so spiritually. I feel daunted by taking the first steps towards a greater understanding. You are fortunate to have your faith.

I love those shapes too. Great inspiration for a quilt.

I think you are in great shape spiritually--physically too. The wedding photos are beautiful.

Refining one's character is an eternal process, and I think if one is striving towards refinement--however small the steps, (and speed does not matter, as long as there's forward movement)--I'd say that person is in great shape "spiritually."

You're in great shape, Dove!

Your paper clips look like you could have a lot fun just playing with them. Spiritually is something I work on all the time, I find it is something that is always evolving and comes to me from many different directions. My physically shape is intertwined with my spiritual shape.
