To shine like a diamond



"And still,
embracing it
and bringing it into the light
of the One who calls us Beloved
can make our brokenness
shine like a
diamond."

~ Henri J. M. Nouwen

Kathleen, I was hoping you hadn't smelled bananas and linoleum again - you haven't posted in awhile... However, this is a gem of a post and worth remembering. The contrasts in the photo are wonderful.

Beautiful, Kathleen.

I've missed you here and need a puppy update.

A diamond isn't really a diamond until it's cut :-)
