Have you ever started a project only to set it aside for a time? Maybe something else caught your interest. Or maybe you just gave up. Maybe, like me, you’ve started many projects only to leave them part finished. Do you sometimes feel like you will never complete anything? The Five Minute Friday word this week is complete.
Years ago, I wanted to make a haiku/photo book, but I got bogged down. I tried to revive it last year but came to a standstill. Another project idea I have is to make a book of poems for a contest. I’ve only barely begun to categorize my poems. Making children’s books out of some of my rhyming poems is another desire of mine. I have chosen a few but need to have someone to illustrate them or do it myself.
Making note cards and greeting cards from some of my photos is something I’ve dabbled in, but have not tried to sell any yet. There are more projects I would like to pursue using my art. It would be great if I could see them to completion.

Complete in Christ

My identity is in Christ. I am complete in Him.
Beware lest anyone cheat you through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the basic principles of the world, and not according to Christ.
For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily; and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power.
I believe God has put these desires in me. One day I will learn what is needed for completing my projects. I’m learning that I need to ask questions and do research. Others have the knowledge I don’t have and can show me the next step. We were not meant to do life alone but need each other.

Plans fail when there is no counsel, but with many advisers they succeed.
