A few years ago I saw a bowl repaired with veins of gold in the Kintsukuroi art form of Kintsugi. It prompted me to post, “More Beautiful for Being Broken: Kintsukuroi“.
Peter Scazzero writes:
The Japanese art of kintsugi calls for seeing beauty in the flawed, the damaged, the imperfect. The broken fault lines are lined with costly gold, making it stronger and more valuable. God does this with us. We each have cracked, shattered places, yet he carefully puts us back together in ways more spectacular and beautiful than before.
Our weaknesses & vulnerabilities are our great gift to the world.
Why not let this soft, short description continue the mending of our soul? Let God show us how our weaknesses and vulnerabilities are our great gift to the world.
Why not reflect on the ways the Creative One mends us in such a way as to touch the tender broken pieces and make them more honoured than when they were before.
This is our moment to talk with God about how He weaves, mends, or otherwise works all things for good according to His good and redemptive pleasure.
