Be a Bridge Over Brokenness

Each time we extend love, joy etc.. we make stepping-stones over the chaos.  Each time we chose patience and self-control we pave the way for peace.  As we become bridge builders we create pathways for others to learn and to cross over.

Broken People Have a Head Start

Pain, darkness and discomfort are the vehicles or portals that are used to transform us. This society rejects pain, rejects discomfort, rejects the unlovely and the unloveable. This is why I love the broken and the poor of spirit because they are open and accepting. They cannot resort to an easy fix. They cannot pretend that they are not broken, battered and bereaved. They know that they are a mess and they know that they need help. This is humility.
