Something Beautiful

Today we woke up at 7 am and went to Lowe's to rent a truck, purchase 2 new bathrooms and transport those purchases to our camp on the Lake. We are remodeling this year. Our little two by two camp is now becoming a beautiful home. It is exciting to see all of the construction taking place. My little camp is metamorphosing into the beautiful camp I always knew it could be. It is at this camp that I feel the most relaxed and at peace with my life, with the world and with God. It didn't matter to me that it was built in 1920's and so teeny, tiny small. I loved it there. But, now that it is being quadrupled in size, I know I will love it even more. My new master suite overlooking the beautiful Lake that is framed by the majestic Adirondack mountains is breathtaking. Even now in it's raw form with plywood walls, and exposed insulated ceilings, the room is amazing and I can see the potential of what is going to be there very soon. I was overcome by how serene I felt the moment I stepped into the newly constructed room. I imagined all of the books I would read on the chaise lounge chair I saw in the corner by the big bay window. I envisioned the antler ceiling fan hanging from the a-frame ceiling blowing cool air over me in the warm summer nights, as I lay in my new log bed. Amazing! It will be simply amazing! Then I began to think; perhaps that is how God feels when He looks at me. He sees that I too, am a work in progress. My life is metamorphosing into something more beautiful. Something He had envisioned for me from the start. Something He always knew I would be. Something beautiful. Something that brings Him peace and joy when He thinks about me. I am that new work. An old strong foundation that is being added to and beautified. A old house being gutted, renovated and remodeled into something beautiful. Yes, I have a long way to go. I know that. However, I also know that the roof was blown open inside of my heart. Cobwebs have been swept away, light from new windows have been added. My life has been transformed from a little colorless caterpillar that crawls on the ground, to a beautiful colorful butterfly that can soar through the sky. God makes something beautiful out of our pathetic, colorless lives. Something incredibly, amazingly beautiful!

"He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the hearts of men; yet they cannot fathom what God has done from beginning to end."
Ecclesiastes 3:11
