The Patched Ones…

 

Here are the beautiful ones.

Hidden in the shadows of the glittery ones,

many times they’ve been broken,

and unevenly patched by the potter’s hands,

yet their value is priceless.

This is about us. Many are broken. Many are hurting. Many have forgotten their true worth. Many are clinging to past mistakes and allowing them to dictate their present circumstance. Many hold on to their pain and weave unforgiveness into their soul. They forget to put down their burden at the Masters’ feet not knowing that in the potters’ hands, their broken pieces are gathered, refined and made far better than the original piece. Just like the Japanese practice of golden joinery ‘Kintsugi,’ – when something has suffered damage and has a history, it becomes more beautiful. No one is ever too broken to be fixed.

Come to me all you who labour and are heavy laden and I will grant you rest. Matthew: 11: 28 – 29

 

Just A Little Thought

Jacqueline's Quotes, Pain, Let go

We can’t sweep our sad moments under the rug just to pretend that they don’t exist and then heap happy platitudes on top of them.

To heal we must bring them to light. Air them out. Cry. Shout. Do what you need to do. But don’t swallow them.

That’s no way to fix what’s broken. Hiding them away is like putting a plaster on a festering wound. It’s not being courageous to bottle it all up, rather it takes courage to seek resolution.

If you are hurting in any way, seek for a reliable, supportive person to talk to, if you have no one to talk to, free write it all out even if it’s anonymously and send it out there.

Be well.
