The Devil is in the Details

I am not by nature organized or detail-oriented. I am a big picture person. This means that I miss a lot. I get the overall view and fully realize it and love it dearly. The details I can overlook so naturally and so easily that I appear flaky or sometimes pretty dumb. However, I must say that I am not bogged down by details. Details are either the death of me (because I miss so much and exasperate my detail-oriented husband) or the life of me (in that the details don’t stress me out or keep me standing in one place). Either way, it is what it is and God made me to be a visionary, big picture person. I have to accept this as okay, for good or bad. Those who would love me would need to do the same. I accept the detail friends and family of mine. True, we see things quite differently and certainly often oppositely. I still love them and hope they return the sentiment. Often seeming to come from opposite planets, we need each other to make it. Detailers need our big picture to not get lost in the trees and big picturers need detailers to keep them grounded. It is how we are cut. God knows what He is doing and together we can accomplish amazing things!!

  1. I’m a lot like you Tonya! While they are hashing out details, I’m thinking how what they’re doing may or may not change the world! 🙂 We are what we are and must celebrate! Glad to read this post!
