Day 28: {Connect} some of the dots for me, won’t You, Lord?

…my parents’ dining room table covered with individual pieces of a 1500 piece jigsaw puzzle with just the beginnings of connected pieces.  It will be a recognizable and beautiful picture when all the pieces are connected, however, in the process, it can be frustrating and difficult to grasp.  Individual pieces can be fun and pretty to look at, but where and with what does this piece connect?  How does this piece relate to all these other pieces to form the whole?  And finally, what is this big picture? … More Day 28: {Connect} some of the dots for me, won’t You, Lord?
