once upon a time

Once upon a time, there was a master painter whose works were without equal.  Whenever he had a canvas and paint available, he would create masterpieces of such magnificence that no words could be found to describe the beauty, extravagance, grace and splendor of his work.  He lived to paint and anyone who had the privilege of seeing his work was immediately captivated by his craft and talent.  One day, he found himself thoroughly engrossed in one of his paintings, so much that he found himself walking around inside the painting, limited to the world that he had painted!  As he strolled through his painting, he met the people that he had painted.  They were dressed with nice clothes and had bright smiles, but as he talked with them, he came to see that they were broken and lacked the vibrant life to which he was accustomed outside of the painting.  As he thought about this dilemma, he decided to go the extra mile and give them some of his life.  As he breathed his life on them, the individuals who received his breath became whole and well, even three dimensional!

The painter was well pleased that he could enjoy the company of his creation 🙂

  1. I like that – you got outside the box – it made me smile. One of your best attributes is painting the picture of love and that is simply what Jesus was all about. He was an orthodox Jew who respected the law and challenged the religious right while understanding grace. But LOVE & Charity was and is the message. Blessings to you
