Anyone who knows me, will know I love photography. I take my camera with me to all kinds of places to make sure I’m always ready if I happen to spot something incredible.
This practice has created a few nice images like this one
Recently I had the above photo made into my first large scale print to fill a very empty wall in my lounge room (thanks to my parents who offered to pay for the mounting as a gift).
My mistake was being in a hurry…
While in a hurry to hang this picture on the wall and get back to the rest of my to-do list I measured its length and the distance from the top of the wall down to the two mount points.
In my hurry I used the OVERALL WIDTH measurement instead of the width between the two mounting points, meaning the picture fits nicely between the two hooks, but unfortunately the hooks are nowhere near the mount points.
Life is like that…
We spend our whole life measuring and hammering in nails in order to hang our hopes of eternal life on them.
They can look good, they can be straight and level, not to mention plenty strong enough to bear the weight, but if we are in too much of a hurry to finish securing eternity so we can return to worldly pursuits, chances are, at the end of our lives when the picture of eternity is ready to be hung, will we discover that in our haste we have missed the mark.
Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth 2 Tim 2:15
So let us make sure that we are making the right preparations today, to ensure our hopes will not be disappointed on that great day.
I pray I see you all there to celebrate!
