Abandoned tools

She had worn soft the handles of the tools available to her, but abandoned them when it came to the work of her heart. No matter how many times he reminded her she couldn’t make things happen alone, she tried anyway. She tried and she tried, bare-handed, fingernails splitting with the effort.


  1. Life will reveal the answers at the pace life wishes to do so. You feel like running, but life is on a stroll. This is how God does things. – Donald Miller

    My tools get worn out from use too!

  2. Kären, and those tools get heavy after awhile, eh?

  3. They get really heavy but such is life. Jesus was a carpenter wasn’t he? Lots of tools in His trade!

  4. True, Kären…very true!
