Beauty in the Brokenness

I know I do the "Beauty in the Brokenness" theme often, it must be a soft spot for me. Be it a crazy quilt or a life, I believe there is beauty in the brokenness. We come thru hardships and dark times with wisdom and strength and an understanding of trials others are going thru.
I'm listing it on etsy right after I make my son 2 grilled cheese sandwhiches! :)

this will go fast like they always DO !

I love your Beauty in the Brokeness concept - stitching back the pieces in your life to create new.

Very healing little amulet - this quilt. Like a prayer quilt !

I would like two grilled cheese sandwiches too please. TWO.

Thanks for the inspiration. Yes, there IS beauty in our brokeness when it draws us to Him. I just finished a piece of artwork for Resurrection Sunday titled "Broken For You". He understands our need for wholeness! :-)

That phrase makes me think of the song, "Broken and Spilled out" talking of our Lord Jesus of course. I really like the colors in this piece. That is sure a close up of Annie, she is such a cutie. BE BLESSED :-)
