VIOLA!  A PICTURE PERFECT WREATH!

It’s super easy to want things to be picture perfect in this life. The truth is, it’s just not. In fact, we all are less than perfect.  I love the reminder paraphrased here in John 8:7 “Whoever is perfect among you can be the first to judge.”  It’s a verse referring to the story of a woman who screwed up royally and everyone was quick to condemn her, but Jesus offered her mercy.  Thank goodness for His mercy in my life, too! His love is the only thing that is truly perfect. In what ways do you find yourself striving for perfection? Comment below.
