Drawing Conclusions

It’s finals were here in the Isham household. Zac had an art project to finish up. Inspired by H.P. Lovecraft’s stories, he drew a creature with tentacles and a great open maw.

“Ruby, how do you draw tentacles?” Zac asked.

Ruby peered over his shoulder at his creation.

“You draw a circle and a line. The rest is imagination,” she said. Then she walked away.

Jonathon had to leave the room to keep from laughing.

“Thanks,” Zac muttered.

Spoken like a true right-brained person.

But life is like that sometimes. You have no pattern to follow. You move forward the best you can. Remember this book?


Yeah. Great book. Only it didn’t help me. I still can’t draw to save my life. This was more my speed.


Sometimes, we have to practice and work and seek out solutions. They don’t fall in our lap. Guides can point us in the right direction. Yet we need to put in the time and effort. The only failure comes when we don’t try again.

And let endurance have its perfect result and do a thorough work, so that you may be perfect and completely developed [in your faith], lacking in nothing. – James 1:4 AMP
