“Out of Your Reach”

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Out of Your Reach.”

I don’t recall being disappointed with gifts often as a child.  However, I would be older before I would understand a broader definition of creativity and my gifts.  Madeleine L’Engle’s now classic book, Walking On Water: Reflections on Faith & Art, was a great blessing (1980, Harold Shaw Publishers; Wheaton, Illinois).  She taught me to “serve the work” the best I can and also to accept that the work will always be imperfect.  Mercy and grace.
