A perspective of gratitude is the focus of this post (HERE) by Jan Edmiston (thanks to Pastor Barb for sharing this article.) Among the gems in the post:
The Japanese art of kintsugi involves repairing broken things with gold or silver so that the veins/cracked places shine. It reminds us that scars are evidence of healing. Scars are beautiful in that they remind us that the bleeding stopped, that the wound healed. Scars remind us to be thankful.
Possible Activity: Using Jan’s article as a reminder, let’s “celebrate holidays and gatherings and disappointments and losses,” with a view of the scars and beauty as opportunities for gratitude.
Enjoy the day, filled with the Spirit
