O come let us adore him, Christ the LordThat would be perfect. My sweet husband made a run to the hardware store, bought some wood and paint, and got to work. He made up a sample on the computer and got to work. Can you believe he free handed those different fonts? He's amazing! When he was finished, I was slightly disappointed. Sadly, I couldn't hide my disappointment and he was discouraged and frustrated. Something just didn't look right. The spacing was off, it just lacked the "wow" I was hoping for. I felt horribly for not being grateful for his efforts, but the sign just didn't look right. A few hours later I noticed that he took the sign down and had the paints out again. He said, "I'm not re-doing the whole sign. I'm going to change one word." I was doubtful that it would make a difference, but I decided to let it go.
The Lord changed everything. The Lord totally makes everything look right." Then we both laughed as he said, "Yes Raeanne, the Lord does change everything!" What a beautiful Christmas reminder. If you look closely, after he distressed it, you can see "Lord" as he first painted it - it was the same size and font as "The." It was small and insignificant. When we keep the Lord small, life just doesn't look right. It's out of balance and the spacing is all wrong. But when the Lord is made big and dominates our lives, everything looks better! It's amazing! The Lord really does change everything!
