I love everything about this sweet art gift from a classmate & dear friend, Belinda.
When I think about the word imperfect, I think about my mother being a perfectionist at her sewing and my sewing to create a flawed piece because I can! It is not a good habit to have if you want to quilt. LOL
There is a store called Imperfect Market where they state it is always fresh, sometimes normal; buy ugly and imperfect produce for 30-40% cheaper. Eat ugly. Eat proud—end food waste. I laughed at this when I read it, but it got me thinking about how wasteful we are. My mother always said to clean our plate because there are starving children in China. It is true. There are hungry children everywhere. This is why I love the Snack Pak 4 Kids program in Plainview and other food nutrition opportunities for children here locally. We live in a broken and imperfect world because we are imperfect. Only Jesus is perfect.
I love the red Cardinal because God sends them as sweet messengers of joy. He gives us the beauty of nature to remind us of the hope we find through Him.
The green eyes tell the world of intense passion and elevate the mystery and enigma of the soul. Green is also considered a very youthful, invigorating color-so those with green eyes tend to bring vibrancy and compassion wherever they go. And, the eyes look like green olives, which provide many good minerals that you need in your diet. Goooo olives!
Denise Greenwood is the artist of this piece, and I love her work. I love the whimsy. I love that it is imperfect; I love that it makes one think.
I am imperfect. I'm okay with that. I know God is perfect. I grow in my understanding by building a relationship with Jesus; he completes me, and because of Him, I am worthy. His power is made perfect in my weakness. I NEED Him.
But he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses so that Christ's power may rest on me. 1 Corinthians 12:9
