The ceramic ornament slipped off the counter and hit the floor hard. Cracked. Broken. In pieces.
A cry escaped, as I stared at the crumbles and bits of what was left on the floor.
I had just gotten the decoration that day, from Day Spring…and I was disappointed at where my gift had ended up.
My kids helped me pick up the pieces. Super glued it back together. Fixed it.
But, the cracks are still visible. The heart is broken.
For the words on the ornament read, “Wonders of His Love”.
Oh yes, the wonders of His love. The words sink into my own heart.
His body was broken for me. His heart leaked for me, the sinner. The blood. His blood poured out.
All because of His great love.
I flipped the ornament over and looked at the spidery crack that ran through the printed verse on back.
This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. 1 John 4:9 NIV
