Broken Pieces

July 13, 2018

PROMPT: Where I'm From

I'm from wooded hills, frosted valleys, icy ponds.

I'm from dashed dreams, desperate prayers.

I'm from the broken pieces.

I'm from hope, sunlight, rain, all counted as blessings.

I'm from God's grace, heaven's mercy.

I'm from the broken pieces.

I'm from sharpened pencils, worn notebooks.

I'm from stories told, tales spun.

I'm from the broken pieces.

I'm from dreams rebuilt.

I'm from dogs' wagging tales, goats' loving voices.

I'm from the broken pieces.
I once had an image impressed on my mind - the image of broken pottery pieces being scooped up by caring hands and made into something new and beautiful. God is the potter, I am His clay. Thank You, Father, for bothering with these broken pieces!

    I love this so much. Especially your footnote on the topic of God being our potter I would suggest reading "You Are Special" By: Max Lucado. Its a beautiful christian children's book and reminds me so much of what you have written here.

    I can relate to you. God is the reason I have so many ideas. What would we be without him?
