Evan and I saw this at our church last night.
Beautiful, emotional, life-changing movie -- I highly recommend it!

"...to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge;
that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.
I was especially blessed by today's Daily Grace Inspirations by Joseph Prince! Read it here!
Having felt un-lovely for many years, I've always longed to experience God's love for me personally,
really know it-- "taste & see it"-- in my heart.

I love these songs from the worship CD-- Anthem of Praise by New Creation Church
In The Story of With, Arnold introduces the concept of "Kintsugi"-- the Japanese art form of repairing broken pottery with gold. In an excerpt from the book the character Ryder says:
"It's the art of repairing what has been shattered by infusing golden lacquer in the fractured places."
"But that just highlights the brokenness."
"That is the point. Rather than hide the imperfections, they highlight them by filling the cracks with liquid
gold. They view the repaired item as even more valuable, because it is now unique from all other vessels."
"The Creator can put the fragments of your life and heart back together with His healing light.
Simply give the pieces to Him." pp.154
Wow! I'd never heard of Kintsugi, but I love including gold paper or paint in my artwork. About 20 years ago I completed this fabric collage/paining (above) with gold paint.
I call upon you, for you will answer me, O God;
incline your ear to me; hear my words.
Wondrously show your steadfast love,
O Savior of those who seek refuge
from their adversaries at your right hand.
Keep me as the apple of your eye;
hide me in the shadow of your wings,
from the wicked who do me violence,
my deadly enemies who surround me.
After I wrote yesterday's post, I came across this podcast last night! I love Joel! When I was a heart-broken single person in my late 30s, early 40s his messages of hope were a tremendous encouragement. And they still are-- Jesus IS our Hope and Encourager, and He is ALWAYS relevant! Check it out!
