A Wonderful Mess
Papa she says, “Yes, everyone, everything, all is and are a wonderful mess in-process.” If you have not yet read “The Shack” or seen the movie, I encourage you to do both. In the story there is an incredibly beautiful garden that up close looks like a terrible mess but from above is an intricate gorgeous maze of colors and a variety of living things. We, everyone of us is like that – a wonderful mess in-process.
Do Not Excuse, Appreciate The Mess
Yesterday I wrote of clutter, hoarders
Today I’ll take the opposite view, side
Sometimes too much order is a disorder
When done not for art or fun but pride.
I love the little saying, “God Bless This Mess”
It’s me they’re speaking of I must confess
And yet I know I am so much better than that
And you when we put on our thinking hat.
We can make gardens out of weeds
Fulfillment, out of perceived needs
Where once fear, hurt, anger breeds
Can flourish, bloom loving happy seeds.
So don’t excuse, appreciate this mess
For everything you or I love and bless
Becomes the garden of our own soul
Life is beautiful when taken in whole.
