Quote of the Day [for Broken Hearts]


Broken Heart

Quote of the day for broken hearts . . .

“When the Japanese mend broken objects, they aggrandize the damage by filling the cracks with gold. They believe that when something’s suffered damage and has a history it becomes more beautiful.” —Barbara Bloom

What an incredible analogy for what God does with brokenness! Focusing on the purpose of pain helps us to hang in there when feeling discouraged. God is filling the cracks of our lives with His Holy presence, refining us, and making us as pure as gold. Hang in there, dear friend. God is making something beautiful!

Look to Jesus [Quote of the day]

Corrie ten Boom quote

“Look around and be distressed, look within and be depressed,  look to Jesus and be at rest.” ~ Corrie ten Boom

United in thought and prayer for the families of the victims in the Las Vegas shooting.

To the brave men and women who intervened to help those in need—thank you! Because of people like you, we are once again reminded that we live in a great nation filled with amazing, courageous, faith-filled people. God bless you as you help, and continue to help those in need.

Excerpt from an article by Dan Stefano describing the acts of heroism in the immediate aftermath (interview with NBC):

“It was everywhere. Thank God it was a country concert. You saw a lot of ex-military jumping into gear. I saw guys plugging bullet holes with their fingers. I saw police officers, while everyone else was crouching, police officers standing up as targets, just trying to direct people to tell them where to go. The amount of bravery I saw, words can’t describe what it was like.”
