Now, imagine "the Potter"putting the pieces together ...delicately, carefully creating wholeness. The Potter's Presence radiating from within... Through what does this radiance shine?
Through the cracks. Through the broken places. God heals broken places. And lets His Light shine to comfort others.
God could use a cracked-pot like me. ~ Comfort others with the comfort God has given. ~ * * * When I was about to throw away the first little flower pot, I thought of this metaphor that Patsy Clairmont used years and years ago. Then I thought that God could use this little cracked pot to recreate Patsy's story.
Thank you, Patsy Clairmont, for your gracious giving of God's gifts of teaching and humor. No pots were harmed during the making of this post. Pots were already broken by husband and daughter ;D
During the month of May our church holds a Baby Shower ...It's organized like the "Giving Tree" at Christmas time.
Tags are written with the needs of mothers-to-be. The baby bassinet is filled to the top after each service. Emptied; and then, filled again. I think it's one of the sweetest things we do all year.Helping women choose life.

Mmmm ... just getting home from work means either stopping at my favorite coffee spot (Dunkin' donuts) or brewing some up myself at home! Thanks, Amanda, for the HUGE mug. ...It's perfect for ... My ultimate favorite coffee is from Dunkin' Donuts. We get the whole bean in a 5 lb bag right from www.Dunkindonuts.com. I add a few flavored coffees to the order... The price with shipping is still lower than buying it at the store. We have a grinder with our coffee maker, so the whole bean is so nice and fresh! 135 cups ... you know that means 10 mugs ; )
Below, dressed in a plain brown bag, is one of the best Amaretto coffees I've ever had. It really tastes like there are two shots of Amaretto in it! This comes from Adam's Fairacre Farms... they'll ship right to your door and take off $2 a pound if you order 5 lbs or more! We ordered decaf, since it's more of a dessert coffee...
These are my daytime flavors... more Dunkin' Donuts coffees!
I'll go to Starbucks for the comfy chairs, BUT their coffee is so strong and bitter. ... it really depends on the blend and how it's made. My daughter's fiancé worked there as manager when he was going to school and knew how to blend the coffee for Dunkin' Donuts drinkers...
