A Work of Art
By Glennel Hardy
I absolutely love visiting the art museum and wandering from gallery to gallery observing the pieces of art on the wall. As you view certain pieces of work you imagine what the artist may have been considering when he composed the piece. As you move further through the gallery you notice that each piece of art is unique, and may represent a certain period of time.
We ourselves is truly a work of art. We represent a time and place, a moment where our masterpiece comes to existence. Like an artist we start with a few strokes of a paint brush, and then throughout life we add color, we create images, and our life becomes vivid. Every color, every shade, and every image within our piece makes up who we are today.
We are a masterpiece. We are unique and one of a kind, and cannot be copied. We may look back at times when things were rough, but they were a part of the masterpiece. We will persevere, as our masterpiece continues.
A true artist never puts the paint brush down.
