"The Sculpting of a Great Life"

So let me tell you my analogy.

I was contemplating my life and I just kept saying "I'm not finished yet, I'm just not finished" and I saw myself as an unfinished sculpture and there's SO much work I need to do before my sculpture is completed.
I liked the analogy of a sculpture so much that I've made it my theme.

Sometimes I feel a bit like this sculpture on the left a"trapped soul".
But I've always known that there was something great beneath my rocky surface something beautiful and amazing like one of degas ballerinas.

Michelangelo once said of his sculptures "I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free."

All I need is God the "master sculptor" help to set me free.

So it is here on this blog that I wanted to write a little about how it's going, the sculpting I mean.

let me just say I'm still a work in progress and some days it feels like I'm adding to my bulk instead of chipping it away.

I still have hope, I've come a long way already and I've had a peak from time to time of what my finished statue will look like.
