All Pieces Here

 Thanksgiving Day behind us
and having arrived home at 12:01 this morning 
after a bit of a holiday blitz,
we are taking it easy today.
 Our "Black Friday" will consist of baking a turkey my husband was graciously gifted with
by his part-time employer (Grabill Do It Best Hardware),
balancing the checkbook, football games,
running the car to dealer for a 1/2 hour recall adjustment,
and then taking a nap or two.
I also brought out this jigsaw puzzle purchased somewhat warily at a thrift store.
We'll try to get the border done today.
I found this note on back of the box to be somewhat reassuring...
I find THIS to be so much MORE reassuring --
For in Him all the fullness of Deity dwells in bodily form,  
and in Him you have been made complete
and He is the head over all rule and authority.
Colossians 2:9-10

All pieces are here!
In Him, I am complete.
Hallelujah.

  1. That is an interesting puzzle...I am in the mood to do one myself. :) My black Friday is to stay home, browse the internet, nibble on left overs, nap and then nap some more. I admire your insight Rebeccca...even from a note on a puzzle...and I join in with your Hallelujah...in Him we are complete. \0/

    1. Instead of starting with the border, we began in the center on this one! It's a lot of fun. And quite beautiful, I think. Thank you for your kind comment, Dee. ♥

  2. That is a beautiful puzzle! And it sounds like a lovely day in store. After a busy and beautiful day, a slow one is so welcome, isn't it?

    Love your reassuring verse!!

    1. Isn't it a beautiful puzzle?! (It has required a WHOLE new strategy to complete. I feel another "life lesson" coming on!) And yes--a slow one is VERY welcome!

    1. I'm glad you commented, Colleen! I fear I've lost you. I am not a Google Plus member so can't leave comments, but at least I CAN access some of your posts now. Wondering if you celebrate Thanksgiving Holiday there - and if so, whose? I know Canada has one. Does Norway?
