I have several really "nice" pieces of pottery--bowls, pitchers, vases, mugs, etc.
They remind me of the unique shapes and designs of the people God has placed around me. So different. Each beautiful in his or her own way. Finding a place of appreciation for them in my heart and attention is the least I can do.
But now, O LORD, you are our Father; we are the clay, and you are our potter;
we are all the work of your hand.
