Walking through this place is a moving experience. Everywhere shivers of glass cover the floors. Awful language and dirty pictures cover the walls. Sometimes one can find exquisite artwork there, too--and sometimes--once in awhile one can find an interesting reflection.
Somehow this photo--with my own face reflected back through all that brokenness--has a special meaning to me today. I am grateful for the broken places in my life. This brokenness has made me who I am. It will influence my life for the rest of the years yet to be lived.
