Broken Crayons

[This post is from a good friend]


Perhaps the reason lies in my defiance for rules and authority. Staying in the lines just doesn’t appeal to me.

Or maybe it’s a combination of both.

But no matter the reason, the result is still the same: I simply do not like to color.

A few days ago, I was in a store for a specific purpose (a new shower curtain) yet I found myself mindlessly browsing the house d├ęcor section. Until I found this piece of wall art.......

Broken crayons still color. What a profound thought for $9.99.

Unfortunately, we all experience brokenness. It is human nature. But in that brokenness, God is with us. And although we are broken, we still have the opportunity to do what we are called to do—whatever that may be.

When I got home that day, I dumped the contents from the bag. Out came a shower curtain, a coloring book, and some crayons.
