Yesterday, today and tomorrow, our city celebrates their annual May festival. Last year, our church participated for the first time in the parade.  We’re doing it again this year and instead of decorating a car we are decorating a float.

Simply put, this is an exercise in try, try again. Something is too long, covering the door that needs to open.  The tape won’t stick to something else.  And that?  It just isn’t high enough.

Trouble shooting and multiple attempts accompany almost every step in the process.  Fortunately, when you’re working with others, you can laugh and get back to it.  Which is a good thing because the next thing you try?  That too may take multiple attempts even when you are using the gifts God gave you.
