Two-fer Tuesday: A Picture’s Worth by Miz Pink

They say a picture’s worth a thousand words. This Two-fer Tuesday we’ll each post a picture that strikes some chord with each of us and let the commentary be very brief.


I sometimes wonder if the pot (or cup or plate or whatever) could think, what would it think of the work the potter did on it? Would it wonder, “Why do I have to be a vase? Why do I have to be shaped and fired and painted for this or that purpose?”

I think a lot of us ask the same kinds of things of God. “Why did you make me this way?” But who says he made us this way? Who’s to say that what we are is what God really wanted? Maybe it’s what we want or maybe its what our folks wanted for us or something else.

After all, the vase doesn’t have to be a vase exactly. Who’s to say it has to hold flowers? Why couldn’t it be used to hold snacks or pretty stones or even be a drinking cup?

Sometimes, the way we’re shaped is not to be rigid but rather to be flexible and find the best path we can walk.

    This was a deep post. I often wonder about these same things. How much is my life a reflection of what God wanted for me, compared to the mess I’ve made of it because I strayed from his path.

    Good post.

    I was going to tease Miz Pink for writing too much on a post that was supposed to mostly be about the photo, but I agree, it was a nice thought she had there and fit nicely.
