Priceless Masterpiece

So…. The Maker of the entire universe thinks we humans are His best work. I am still absolutely amazed by that.

-a poem by Tracy C.

You know the way we gaze at the star-filled winter sky or stand amazed at the edge of a canyon as an eagle flies by?

Or the way our jaws drop as we get a first glimpse of majestic mountains from a plane in the sky?

Well… the Maker of all that thinks we are His most amazing art of all times…

So valuable to Him that He paid the highest price… His very life.

Who are we to devalue ourselves or others when we are priceless masterpieces of the Most High?

The Rhythm of Life – by Matthew Kelly

I was drawn to this book because I love the word “rhythm”. In fact, with my free-spirited personality (Enneagram 4 – if you’re into that), I use the word rhythm instead of the word routine because it sounds like so much more fun: dancing instead of creating order.

I’ve just started and I’m already captured by a couple of quotes – particularly ones about choices.

It’s way easier to play the victim than to own the impact of our choices.

But I do want to live an uncommon life. So it’s time to intentionally be the drummer – the rhythm maker – of my own life. That way, no matter how the song turns out – good, bad, or ugly – it is still very much my own.
