Luke 15:8

"Or suppose a woman has ten silver coins and loses one. Does she not light a lamp, sweep the house and search carefully until she finds it?"

Here's my version:

Suppose an overtired mother has a thousand piece puzzle that she's been working on for over a year, and she loses four pieces. Does she not grab her swiffer and enlist the strength of her whole family to find the pieces? Does she not move every piece of furniture and dust in corners that never see the light of day? Does she not thoroughly clean the dreaded 'junk' closet from top to bottom, while praying that something won't bite her? And suppose she finds one piece after the manic burst of cleaning? And is still missing three.

Then she thinks about what craft projects can be done with the pieces with her friends and good chunk of chocolate.
