Next Stop: Allison

It has been a while since I've posted.  We have gotten a little off-track, but that's okay since the painting is meant to be a ministry for all of us, but especially to the wonderful Pilgrims who committed to this project.  I appreciate every one of you!  See the beautiful words from the latest, Allison:

I placed the painting in the most trafficked room in our home, the dining room. In our 
home you have to pass through the dining room to go to bed each night and then to the kitchen each morning. I thought having the painting in this room would help me keep Jesus top of mind. And it did. I found myself more frequently putting my basket in his hands; however, I wonder, did I make a mistake? I put the painting in a room we "pass though" but we rarely settle in. I wonder if that acts as metaphor for my faith. I can't answer this today; but I know I need to make some changes.
Thanks for allowing me to be a Pilgrim.

  1. Allison, I know that I deal with the same struggle-passing by and not settling in with Christ some days. I have to discipline myself daily and even hourly! It certainly IS difficult to do, but ALWAYS rewarding when I do it. Have you found that to be true?
