PPF: The Wise and the Foolish Man

Here is my painting for 
Paint Party Friday!

"As my partnership with God deepens,
my plans will agree more with His,
because our hearts will agree."
This is what I read from The Word Among Us

Isn't this what prayer is about?
It is a conversation, a give and take
between God, who inconceivably loves us
and me who seeks to love Him more and more.

The story of two men,
one who built his house on rock,
and the foolish one who built his house on sand
has been retold again and again.
When the rains and the floods came,
the wise man's house was still standing
but alas, the house built on sand 
collapsed and was washed away.

I was watching how the strong rains 
washed away homes in India.
Torrents of rain just brought so much devastation.

In our life, we need to listen and act on the word of God
so that our life is built on a strong foundation.
Otherwise, strong winds and rains, challenges like
sickness, loss of our job,
addictions, etc. can destroy us!
I do not want to be like the foolish man,
and so I try every day to read the Word of God,
to embed it in my heart,
and to practice it!

The other day I embellished an aluminum tube
that used to hold Vitamin C lozenges
and made a container that I can put a nice letter in
for my sister's birthday.
See how I made this Personality Pillbox.

Every week I choose one wonderful visitor
who leaves a comment
to receive an ATC from me.
I know it takes so much time and effort
to leave a comment
and I appreciate it soooo much!
