Broken, Shines!


Broken, Shines!

Glass from a broken bottle, still shines.  Light glints off its surfaces.  Unique shadows form as a result of the lighting source.  Beauty!  

The pieces can be arranged in artistic designs.  Or an artisan might use some bonding material – clay, silicone, solder -- to join a number of odd shapes to become an intricate art piece.

The broken pieces of our lives still shine for Jesus.  His light glints off our surfaces, deepening our character and fashioning one-of-a-kind personalities for his glory.  What we perceive as shadows, are the result of his lighting us.  Beauty!

  1. I love art that is made with broken bits of colored glass. I think it is the perfect illustration for how Christ does what you say, Marilee--makes beauty out of our brokenness. Now that is good news.


I would rejoice greatly to receive a comment from you, thanks.
