Cracked? Bashed? Broken?


I love this ornament given to me by a friend many years ago. I see it as a person in worship to their creator. I love the smoothness of the pottery and the fluid lines.

Look closely and you will see a break on one of the arms. (A moment with the duster . . . and then some glue.)

The figure is actually more precious to me now – with its crack. It seems more real.

We are indeed all a bit cracked, bashed, broken – however you want to describe it.

And yet there is hope of healing – a journey towards wholeness – for me with my creator God. And the scars? Perhaps one day they can become precious – a record of the journey.

This is Mindful Monday on 10 February 2020.

Join Sara Shailer and Julie Hill for an evening of mindfulness on the theme of journeying to wholeness on Monday 16 March 7.30-9 pm at the Oasis, Cheltenham.
