I held the pen when I wrote 'Uncle Tom's Cabin;' God dictated. Never give up, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn.

Forgiveness

 

Here's the section of the actual picture from which it was painted.

It's funny how as we see things we change them. We don't expect paintings to be "picture-perfect," but it surprises me how sometimes we expect people in our life to remember conversations and events and dates and such "perfectly." We can enjoy the creative rendition of the artist in the conversion of reality to canvas, but we can't work to see the point of view of someone else. Why is that?

An artist is given a license - even encouragement - to give it their voice. Tamara and I hear that encouragement every week on Idol. "Don't just give me karaoke - make it your own!" the judges urge the contestants. But people in our life don't get the same encouragement.

What would it be like if we gave artistic license to everyone around us?
