Making Beauty From The Scraps
I should have know that something was up.
Through out last week both of my children kept asking to help feed the horses, muck the stalls, clean the barn-anything that gave them some time in the barn. I thought they were enjoying the spring weather or just being out of the house.
I was wrong, they were not out there enjoying spring.
They were both out there up to something else.
Sometimes they were together, other times just one of them.
They were working hard.
It was a labor of love.
I’m not sure when they finished it.
But, I was presented with the beautiful, precious gift today. The day after Good Friday and the day before Easter.
My heart was bursting with thankfulness and love. My eyes teared up. I was (believe it or not) speechless.
And here it is❤️
It is a masterpiece and fills my heart in so many ways.
My children made this from scraps that they found around the farm.
Pieces that were broken, no good, of no use. So they were thrown away.
But my children made those broken, useless pieces into something beautiful.
Something beautiful that represents The One who takes the broken, the no good, the ones thought to be useless, worthless and He makes them beautiful.
What an amazing expression of love!
They took those scraps and built the symbol of my Savior. The cross that He died on for my sins and yours. The very symbol that takes my broken undeserving worldly ways-my sins, away. It takes them and turns it in to beautiful loving forgiveness- an amazing grace.
What an amazing gift of love- a symbol of the greatest act of love.
“Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures” 1 Corinthians 15:3b-4
Because He died for our sins we are a made new. We were broken, sinful, no good and He makes us in to something beautiful.
He died for you. For the forgiveness of your sins. Because He loves you.
Do you know this amazing grace? The unending Love of our Savior? Have you asked Him in to your heart and given Him your sins, your brokenness?
He will make beauty from the scraps.
