3 Things I Learned From Brokenness

We live in a throw-away society.  When something breaks these days, we just throw it away and buy a new one.  The way things are currently made they seemingly break more easily than things made in days gone by.  We just buy a new Imageone because it is cheaper to buy a new one than it is to fix the broken item.

Thank you Michael for sharing and writing another encouraging article.

  2. John, it is I who should be thanking you for helping me to see God’s perspective through all of this. You truly have a been my “walking partner” in this very difficult journey. I still say that you should start your own blog. If not writing, then video. Talk to you soon.

    • Nora, you are welcome for the friendship. What would life be like without them? I did teach this message this past Sunday morning at a friend’s church. I am checking with them to see if it was recorded. If so, I will post it on my church’s website. Hope to see you soon.
