It was very unsightly but unfortunately I had to live with it. Somehow when the builders built my unit they managed to put the trip switch box in skew, so it became far more noticeable than it should have been.
A tight budget didn't allow much room for decorating, however thanks to some help from my mom and a few friends, I finally have a beautiful fabric wall hanging to cover the abomination and it has brought a whole lot more softness into the room.
Are there some aspects in your life that are just so unsightly you can't bear to deal with them? Well I can tell you today that the word of God has a beautiful promise for us. Isaiah 1:18 tells us that though our sins were as scarlet, they shall be white as snow.
Through God's grace, when we accept Jesus as Lord and Saviour he cleanses us and covers our sin with his precious blood. When God sees us, He no longer sees our unsightly sin, but the precious blood of His Son.
[Special thanks to June (mom), Annatjie, Selma and Kobus for all your help!]
