Okay, besides the obvious lack of treatments, there is something seriously wrong with this picture. Whether or not you can point it out in the first 5 seconds will reveal whether or not you suffer from Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, as I do.
While building this house, I made it known to all involved that I would need everything aligned, level, straight, centered, and otherwise perfectly installed, or they would be subject to re-dos in order to spare my sanity.
That being said, some of these people managed to do their jobs while I was occupied elsewhere & the results are things like you see in this picture. (For those of you free-spirited decorators, the problem here is that the light fixture is completely off-center.)
SO... in an effort to drown out this fixture mocking me as I live here everyday, I chose this solution....
Yes, it's a cleverly-placed decoy to distract other OCD guests that my visit my home. But really, it's a message to me.
Psalm 72:18 "Blessed be the Lord God, the God of Israel, who only doeth wondrous things."
It's my reminder that when things don't go my way, it's still all good. And although people may fail us, (whether they are electricians or brick masons or other people we know) God never will. He is always good. Everything He does is perfect. And when I don't get everything I think I want, it's really fine because His plans for me are better than anything I could plan for myself. I'm so thankful to be a Christian and that I have the comfort of knowing He's there orchestrating every part of my life so that I don't have to. I couldn't do this on my own. My life is in his hands. And it's a wonderful life. Because He only does wondrous things.
