Puzzles are supposed to be challenging and fun. As a matter of fact we bought a few puzzles during the time of the pandemic and it was fun doing it all together as a family time and time again. They are inexpensive, but provide nice breaks in the day and also great to do it with family. We had a lot of laughs trying to get the puzzle look like the picture on the box.
But there are puzzles out there that can be quite discouraging. For example. The picture above is the puzzle we bought through amazon. Look at how tiny these pieces are! Holy buckets! They are so tiny! This is a 350 piece puzzle that each piece is less than one inch across. It took my wife less than 10 seconds to realize that this is not what she wants to do on her day off. And I quickly followed her lead because I do not want to do this by myself. This puzzle offers more challenges than fun!
But I guess sometimes life offers more challenges than fun. And sometimes we gotta know when the challenges are not worth the torture. It’s time to let it go. But I do believe that every challenge has its reward, but at the same time I do think that each challenge is given to us to the specific person or certain times.
But don’t ever get discouraged in life when you feel the challenge is too much. It is ok to let it go! It doesn’t ever mean you are good enough or smart enough or strong enough. It just means the challenge was not meant for you!
That being said… does anyone out there want a 350 piece puzzle divided that is smaller than the tip your pinky finger? Please let me know. The picture is really cute. It is of three very cute puppies. God bless everyone and God be with he person that wants to take this challenge on!
Hey this is Rev. Brian Choi's random thought throughout my week. Most of this stuff, will probably be about family, church, fishing, music, movies, food, whatever I think of, hopefully it will have some sort of theological reflection (maybe).
