When I was in Nanaimo this summer, my friend Mel suggested that I make an audio book of my recent book Walking The Line—a useful tool for the visually impaired. I thought it was a good idea and have been busily recording my book this fall.
In preparation for an upcoming session I was reminded of a pretty basic but important truth: We are all broken and none of us have it all together! I paused and thought, “Yep, that pretty much sums me up. Lots of brokenness…not a whole lot of being together.”
None of us has it all together. None of us knows all the truth. This is the reality of the human condition. Jesus simply encourages us to accept our limitations, live in humility, and do so in a spirit of love. No games. No competition. No comparison. Just receive God’s love and pass it on. Perhaps, the pithy insight of Mr Rogers’ song “You’ve Got To Do It” can help us here. For if we do it, we will know who did it, and this will help us to keep doing the beautiful work of Christ’s compassionate love. (Walking the Line)
Do you have thoughts on living under the human overcast? How do you deal with your own brokenness?

Yep, that pretty much sums me up too🥰
I saw a quotation from the poet Sandra Cisneros this morning. She says she would need prozac if she wasn’t writing poetry. So for me...writing is a way to process my brokenness.
