Inspiration for the Day
In ancient Japan, there was a unique form of art called Kintsugi, which involved fixing broken pottery with a special lacquer dusted with powdered gold, silver, or platinum. It takes a beautiful piece of broken art, and rather than throwing it away, it fills it with gold that glitters in the light. The idea of allowing God to fill the fractured pieces of us is the key to accepting who we are. Our Higher Power has given us the tools in order to mend and mold ourselves into even more beautiful human beings than before. We are no longer broken, and understanding this is what allows us to accept our past and accept that self-love is the key to the future.
Meditation for the Day
Today I will allow God to fill the fractured pieces within me with love and light. I will share this treasure I have found with others.
