I like working with my hands. I like woodworking especially.  It may be hard work but there is nothing like the feel and the smell of wood. Watching something form from bits and pieces is rewarding. 

Life is similar.  You take stock of what you have and what you need and make a plan.  You picture what you want and try to fit the pieces together to make it. Sometimes you miscalculate and have to start over or figure how to fix it. 

It can be frustrating and certainly time consuming but seeing the finished product is well worth it. I wonder if that’s how God feels about us.
