Coloring outside the lines can be beautiful…

Some think coloring outside the lines is wrong.  It seems out of place to them.  It even seems counterproductive.  But consider the crippled handicapped child and how beautiful it is to even see the child pick up the crayon.  Any color is good.  It matters not where the color goes.  It is just beautiful to see the color at all. 

David colored outside the lines.  In his experiences and with God's wisdom, he developed some rules to live by.  These rules give insight into his life and can be applied to those like him.  

You stick by people who stick with you, 
you're straight with people who're straight with you, 
You're good to good people, 
you shrewdly work around the bad ones. 
You take the side of the down-and-out, 
but the stuck-up you take down a peg. 

"I am but a crippled child.  There is beauty in the colors I pick and the place I lay them down."  ~the janitor

It is the desire of my heart that God be Lord of my life. Life’s experiences have killed the old man and God is building a new creation in me. I look forward to experiencing the new man God creates in the old vessel known as Archie via "God Spots".
