Tyler put this in a comment after my last blog post, but I felt it deserved it's own post:
When we are willing to give what is broken our best effort and materials, what we make can be stronger, more beautiful and MUCH more interesting.
Still the choice is always there - do we put in the effort? Or do we throw away the broken pieces, declaring them beyond repair?
Personally, I think we throw things away far too quickly and easily in this culture...things, relationships, people.
I'm guilty as well.
But look at what we miss out on when we make that choice?
