Broken

DSC_0434

When brokenness is brought to light

it just might be an opportunity

to see things in a way

that never would have been possible otherwise.

It's tempting to be eager

to discard the pieces and move on,

when they could be used instead to create

something new and beautiful.

"Therefore we do not lose heart.  
Though outwardly we are wasting away, 
yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day.  
For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us 
an eternal glory that far outweighs them all.  
So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but what is unseen.  
For what is seen is temporary, 
but what is unseen is eternal."  
2 Corinthians 4: 16-18

This is so lovely, Tracy! Amazingly pretty. I would have never thought of taking pictures of broken glass.

P.S. This crash happened in the middle of the night. No football throwing teenagers were involved.
