When I saw this in the Beijing airport, it had AMY written all over it.

Thanks to all of you for putting up with me!

Amy, definitely in progress

Have you ever seen a signed that summed you up?

    Amy — this reminds me of Ruth Bell Graham’s tombstone. Billy’s wife saw this sign one day and told him she wanted it on her stone — “End of construction- thank you for your patience” Having been born in China she ask that the character “YI ” (Righteousness) also be on her stone. We truly are a work in progress — only completed by His righteousness!!

    We need to connect soon – if you are now in Denver

      I’ve heard the RBG tombstone but had forgotten it. Thanks for bringing it back to mind — I love it!

    I completely relate to this sign, because life truly is a construction project, and many of us seek to have God as our General Contractor (but we are still “works in progress”)!

    Awesome! The sign is perfect for all of humanity. As much as we like to fool ourselves into believing we have it together, we are all in need of some major repair work.

    Switching gears… One of my favourite sign pics (have a collection from my years in Asia) is from a bus at the Chengdu bus station with the phrase “Don’t kiss me it hurts!”-meaning “don’t tailgate!’

    Love this! I am actually about to start a link up on Wednesdays called WIP Wednesday (Work In Progress) with posts focusing on recognizing the work God is doing in and around us!!

    I think that sign pretty much sums me up, too. :)

    Perfect! WIP…. All of us.
    So glad to meet you, one who pays attention to life’s many lessons, even signs.
    Signs, signs, everywhere a sign. But are we paying attention like they told us to do in school? I am, and so are you!

    My current life sign/memo would be: “You have 2 new updates, please download and restart.”

    Amy, this is great :) I never thought about looking for a sign that might sum me up, but I like this one you found. We really are all works in progress, aren’t we? Blessings to you!
