"Miracles do not, in fact, break the laws of nature."
C. S. Lewis
However, lies full of malice and corrupted intent will break your heart.
I suppose, at the sum of brokenness, lies a silver lining of truth- that one's heart is tender enough to actually be broken, and for that we can be grateful. The shards of a shattered bottle can be repurposed for a beautiful stained glass window, or melted down and and made anew.
The bitter sting of betrayal is doubled when you realize a "friend" was NOT a friend, and all the nagging doubts you had about their true intentions, words, stories, and motives prove, yet again, your gut instincts were dead on. ALWAYS listen to your gut.
The miracle of my day is knowing one simple truth...Love is never wasted. What you plant with love always yields a crop, although it may not bear the fruit you were expecting. Love is an energy which always comes back to you, and it heals, mends, soothes, and comforts. Our brokenness is akin to a dry cracked patch of earth, and love is like a slow steady rain, followed by warm sun, and flowers will grow where it was once barren.
Love is never wasted, and forgiveness is a miracle.
May my life be full of both.
