Transformed Rubbish...

I had a VERY busy day yesterday. And on the whole it was stimulating and encouraging. However, I had to keep hauling myself back to the positive, as there were little annoyances throughout the day... Frustrations with aspects of church politics and practice... and with specific members of the church... Impatience on my part in some things and annoyance at others' impatience in other things... Niggles about practical things like microphones and coffee...
I've written and spoken before about my tendency to focus on the negative... But I got home today to find a few of my friends had posted this piece on facebook, featuring this picture among others...


Without the light shining on it, it is merely a pile of rubbish with a couple of stuffed seagulls... But you've got to look beyond the rubbish to see the full picture... 

(Some of the pictures are more pleasant than others... and there are some who say this is all photo-shopped... But I prefer to focus on the positive... See, I'm learning...)
