52-56: Monday and the Broken Vase


Sorry it has been a while.  There has been a lot going on in my world.  I am coming to know just how beautiful imperfection is.  I have been releasing the skeletons from my closet in hopes to cleanse my heart and soul of the negative and such I don’t need.  I don’t desire to be held back or down any more.

For the record:  Monday-0 and CatMan-3.  I stopped myself from a major melt down this morning over a work project that I had to redo and it was frustrating.  I also broke my power cord for my computer to which I also had good luck there spending only $9 for a piece rather than $80 for the whole cord.  And I got a message across, pissed some people off, and I didn’t stress out about it.  WHOHOO!  I win x’s 3!

I have admitted to myself a few hard harsh facts.  Those will remain in private.  My heart over all feels better.   Yet, I still keep pressing on!  Even though we might feel like a broken vase, we can be repurposed and turn out just beautiful!  Take a look at what I mean: http://fab.com/sale/17991/?navEmail=1&utm_source=Triggermail&utm_medium=email&utm_term=monday_daily_sale_list&utm_campaign=daily_sales_mailer&email_user=catie.manning%40yahoo.com

I allowed myself to feel like a broken vase until I realized “oh wait CatMan, you can pick yourself up and make yourself into something great!  Let’s get creative!”  Clearly, we are given several chances to be created into something beautiful. That is the power of forgiveness.  I am working through that right now.  So like this broken vase, I too have been put back together and I too can still feel beautiful even though I have been broken a few times.  God is the glue that keeps putting me back in such a way that is still usable to Him and presentable to society. He does this for each of us as He loves us dearly.  If He didn’t, I would still feel broken and a mess.

Love allows us to heal.  Love allows the holes to be filled in with seeds of hope and desire to be better than what we are right at this very moment.  Love makes everything beautiful possible even if we are just broken vases!

Have a great Monday!
