I Love a Good Mystery!

Big Picture Thinking!


I got this cool idea the other day. In the shower. I always think better there. Maybe my brain muscle is attached to my sinuses. I get stuffy and need to clear them out so I can think straight.

Anyway. The radio station in town does a secret sound contest. Sweet hubby wanted so bad to win it the other day. He knew exactly what it was – and he was right! We all got up early, dialing our phones to try to get through. Everyone and their dogs were up dialing, too. So, no, he didn't win. But it did give me a sweet idea.

I thought it would be fun to give a little test today and see how many everyday items you can identify. I'm just going to post a few pics, but see if you can tell what they are in the close up view. Then you can "Read More" and see the actual items. Good luck!

She spends her days directing the children’s music program at her church and working with the authors of Write Integrity Press to put out the best possible version of their books. Raised in suburban Dallas, she got her first taste of writing through the stories of brilliant authors of their day, Mignon Eberhart and Phyllis A. Whitney, and through stage experience. After directing and acting in productions for decades, Marji started writing her own scripts. From that early beginning, she delved into creating scintillating suspense with a side of Texas sassy. She invites readers to unravel their inspiration, seeking a deeper knowledge of the Lord’s Great Mystery that invites us all.

  1. Good point, C.Kay. I'm impressed that ya'll are getting some of them right. I don't think I would get any of them if I had to take the challenge. The first looks like a chair back to me. The second, like a razor. The third I would give up on entirely! Thanks for playing!


  2. I love these kinds of challenges. I got the first one right, and suspected the last one. Tunnel-vision is also something I struggle with. It really puts the verse, "walk by faith, not by sight" into a new perspective.


  3. Good post. I didn't get any of your pics though LOLI guess trust enters in when we can't see what He is doing.


  4. Marji, I'm a shower thinker, too. Ideas often begin to flow as I stand under the steady stream of water.I enjoyed your challenge even though I only got the first one right. =)
