On Being Broken

      Why do we hide our brokenness? Are we afraid to be real? Do we realize that every person has broken pieces and needs love and concern--not our hypocritical piousness? In James 5:16 it tells us, "Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed.  The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much." So thankful that I have a Heavenly Father willing to love my broken pieces!

                            Sea   Glass


            No longer the object that I once was
                     A jagged piece of nothing
                              Refused and useless.


          Sinking deeper and deeper into the dark green
                    Salt wearing away the sharp edges
                                Tossed and bruised.


      Thrown on the sand by a burst of sea foam
                      No one can reach me
                                 On an island…solo
             Leather sandals on the beach
                      The Artist’s wounded hands lift
                                   Me up….

Psalm 139:17-18 and 23-24
How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them!
If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand: when I awake, I am still with thee.
Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts:
And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.

 John 14:6
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
