When syndicated Catholic News Service columnist Christina Capecchi took a sabbatical from checking or posting on the social media site Twitter, she had more time to work on writing and poetry. She also enrolled in a class that taught her how to make stained-glass windows. What began as a lesson in “artistry,” however, soon turned into one of deep spirituality.
When Capecchi cut on the wrong side of the glass, she told her teacher she thought she “made a mistake.” His surprising answer: “We don’t say that in art.”
Don’t fret over shattered pieces in your life. Instead, trust in God to make them beautiful.
Create in me a clean heart, O God, and put a new and right spirit within me. (Psalms 51:10)
Lord, may Your spirit shine through even the darkest corners of our lives.
