While the boys were involved with their school work, youth groups, swim team etc, Roberta was incredibly productive, delighting herself in producing pottery for the different art shows. Besides returning to the Newtown Arts festival and Artique in Ridgefield, we participated for the first time at the NUMC Fall Arts and Craft Fair in town and the Southbury Fine Arts Festival.
.We are grateful to all who stopped by our table, encouraging us and giving us feedback. At Southbury, a woman who had dabbled in pottery stopped by the booth and was admiring a vase. When she asked how the vase was so beautifully shaped, Roberta explained the key was in centering the clay correctly on the wheel. This is actually true of any piece of pottery made on a wheel.
This applies to our lives as well. We get busy. Different troubles and pressures may overwhelm us. As Matthew 7 alludes to if our lives are not built on a solid foundation we will collapse .May I encourage you to seek God and center your lives around Him. . As Colossians 2 6-7 says “ So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.
