Three times

I was reading a blog post the other day by an author. She was discussing the structure of one of her books. She explained that to make a point in a book, the author needs to tell it three times. Three times, in different ways, perhaps, but three times in a story emphasizes the point.

When we decorate or prepare a piece of work, an element is usually repeated at least three times, to achieve balance. Three candles in an arrangement, three images in a layout.

Three is an important, balanced number.

We have been told, as children of God, that we are loved -- by a creator, a redeemer and a sustainer. Three times, so that the message is heard.
