Lizzie, who is 7 years old and much wiser than most adults I know – no, she is wiser than ALL of the adults I know, was working a jigsaw puzzle with me this weekend.
As we were trying to find the pieces that fit into the 500 piece puzzle showing a lake and the fall colors, Lizzie calmly made this observation:
“You know, Grandma – life is a jigsaw puzzle. You have to try a lot of pieces to finish a jigsaw puzzle – but if you work hard and keep trying, you end up with a beautiful picture.”
I stopped, stared at her and nodded in agreement as I realized that God had just spoken to me through one of his angels.
