The putty analogy.
So I am weird like this. I see analogies wherever I go. While I was putting putty on the corners of our project to smooth them out I thought about God's word. When I was done I looked up the verse in Jeremiah 18. "Like the clay in the potters hand, so are you in my hand quote. The edges of our project had holes where the boards were warped and rough edges where the boards met. They were certainly imperfect, just like me. However with my hand I can spread on the smooth putty and make everything OK. With a little sandpaper after it dries, it will be made new. What a great imagery to think of as I consider how God can take the horrible me and make me new.
