"Love doesn't have to be on Valentine's Day. It doesn't have to be by the time you turn eighteen, or thirty-three or fifty-nine. It doesn't have to conform to whatever is usual. It doesn't have to be kismet at once, or rhapsody by the third day. It just has to be. In time. In place. In spirit. It just has to be." David Levithan
Some paintings, as this one 'Green Rhapsody' available by clicking: HERE ,flow easily and come together quickly, others take a while longer. In either process, knowing when to let it be is key. It doesn't have to be rhapsody at once or by the third date. The majority of the time it's perservering, patience and continuing to be there as it progresses through stages that at times can be ever so frustrating and ugly. To see beauty emerge from the messes is the reward. That's life too. Bringing it all together into one harmonious piece. In the big picture, I imagine God doing that exact same thing with our lives. In time, in place, in spirit....it just has to be.
And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28
