We craft love from heartbreak

This was the line that caught my attention when I first heard it on Sunday:

We craft love from heartbreak

It opens the possibility of redemption.

Of silver being refined and remoulded through fire.

Inviting us to look again at what was precious, even though it may have been broken.

I wonder, what is this important to you?

And what might you do with it?

Because the alternative is cynicism.

We craft love from heartbreak,
compassion from shame,
grace from disappointment,
courage from failure.
