The word kaleidoscope means “beautiful shapes to look at and examine.” I think my favorite feature of kaleidoscopes, though, regardless of their beauty or collectibility, is there eclectic potential. Probably because, quite honestly, I’m an eclectic person. I dress as though I have tumbled out of the color wheel; I decorate my home in mixes of styles and hues; I like to cook without rhyme or reason. (My hubby refers to me and my in-kitchen escapades as “she who experiments.”) My propensity for such diversity probably explains why I’m drawn to not only the fragmented somersaults within a kaleidoscope but also the the varied flurry of the book of Proverbs.
Whether you choose to spin the Proverbs tumbler alone or with a kaleidoscope of friends who gather together to capture patterns of God’s ways for their lives, the result will be spectacular art.
