puzzles


Human beings are puzzles. Each one of us, a bunch of individual, unique pieces fitted together. And every piece counts, whether it's a fault or a quality, a good or bad memory, a carefree laugh or a flood of tears, a hello or a goodbye. It builds us up to who we are meant to be, made to be.
But what happens if you're missing some of the pieces? What happens when other people carelessly lose and misplace them, or break them, so that you could never get them back again?

The answer to those questions: the puzzle won't be whole.

And she will feel the missing pieces, like holes in her soul.
But that's okay, because I believe that none of us are really whole puzzles. Not yet.
We're going to be.

Only One knows where the forgotten, lonely pieces are, only One can put them in the place where they belong, fit them in, to complete the picture.
He will complete the picture,
someday.

Philippians 1:6 - Being confident of this, that He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.

-side note: I've committed to use only my own photos from now on. No more Pinterest snatches. So, all photography in the future will be my own (this one is also mine). I'm excited to be getting back into proper photography, it's been long-

  5. Puzzles, puzzles, puzzles. People have always been frustrated with me because they "can never figure me out" (their words, not mine). Some days I feel out of place, but I know eventually I will find my way back into the whole puzzle. ^.^

    1. I'm sure plenty of people find me confusing as well. But I also think, maybe we're all a little confusing, even to ourselves. I'm waiting for the day when the mist clears and I can see everything crystal clear.
