Works of art mesmerize, capture, draw out words and feelings of awe, appreciation, and so much more.
The beauty of the Pieta, the wonder of a fine piece of furniture — to mention just a few.
The finished product radiates.
However, the process leading to the final product takes time, talent, patience, and perseverance.
The wisdom of later life stands on the growth and pain and molding of many years.
Who would not to be the sculptor who chiseled the Pieta?
Who would not want to be the carpenter who made a fine piece of furniture?
But how about being the piece of marble which needs to be chiseled?
But how about being the wood which needs to be cut and sanded?
People in our life can be the sandpaper which refines us, when and if we are patient.
People in our life can be the sculptor who chisels us and takes away the rough edges.
