Making a List, Checking it Twice

The time is drawing near for us to start our new phase of Children's Ministry at church.  Along with this, we are working feverishly to finish the Timeline Mosaic in order to display it in the new area.  I've been carting the materials around to different classes at church to let different people work on it, and one evening this month we're going to have a Ladies' Night Worknight to work some more.  As a result, there are mosaic boards in all stages of completion all around.  In fact, the sheer number of them existing in some degree of completion makes me feel like we have accomplished a huge amount of the total job.

Of course, this week when I sat down to take a look at the list of stories to be completed, it told a different story.

Below is the list of stories that we are making boards for.  The ones that are in the red font are ones that have been drawn on the boards.  So, that's 49 of 65 drawn.

The ones highlighted are ones that are completed, with all the glass put on.  So that's 15 of 65 created.

The ones with a black line drawn through it are the ones completed and grouted.  That's - ummm, 7 of 65 completely done.

Of course, there is no indicator here of mosaics that are almost finished - of which there are quite a few.  But they don't count, and they don't get a colored font or a highlight.  So sad.


Sorry - have to go - I have to go glue on some glass.
