I was thinking of the old window we saw the other day, weathered and worn, its paint coming off in places, but someone had taken this useless old thing and transformed it into a piece of art.
Behind each pane of glass there was stretched a white lacy crocheted snowflake, filling up the glass with its delicate design, repeated in each glass in the window, it all became a most pleasing picture created anew.
I think of our lives when I met and fell in love with you, that I was alone and worn out too, thinking that I would never be useful again; lost and lonely I sat in my dark corner, no light shining through my dusty panes.
Jesus found me like that, and when I allowed Him into my heart, He saw what I could be, not what I was, and proceeded to make the plan that He had for my life become a reality.
He scraped off all the old paint, leaving enough to have some beauty, and cleaned the glass so His light could shine through, putting lovely designs in each pane for He knew, this would be just the right thing when He brought me to you.
And when we did meet, we fell in love, and saw each other through the eyes of love and grace, and to each we had just the right beauty in our hearts that it overflowed and captured us both in its embrace.
We now have such happiness that we have become brand new, and the love we share keeps us forever young, that you give to me and I return to you.
