Our lives are Jenga towers:
intricate stacks of circumstance
that in a moment can
collapse around us.
Truer than True!
If we build our lives on sand that is.
I think the principle applies on rock, as well. Look at Job, or Peter, or Paul. They definitely had their orderly worlds collapse in a moment!
But always remember, beauty remains, especially in the chaos and ruin!
I’m quite into the contrasting beauties of order and chaos…
True. I’m Thankful that God is always there to pick up the broken pieces and put them together again.
Jenna requires gentleness and patience as do the circumstances of our lives. And through grace, all will be well, even the occasional collapse.
Auto correct got me again. Jenga, not Jenna.
but ‘the best laid plans go oft angly’ certainly applies here!
