"God is gentle with us, and we are his beautiful handiwork- but we are not finished handiwork, yet. And as long as there's breath in our lungs and days left to live, we won't be finished. When you're spinning a bowl/mug and try to thin the walls of it too quickly, you tear holes in the side of it and you have to start over. If you try and shape it harshly, the whole thing goes off center. And God knows this is true of us fragile humans too. He works slowly and precisely because he is gentle and good and wants to shape us into beautiful people." - Jessica Sklba
My beautiful friend gave me this piece from her first ever pottery batch. But she gave me so much more with these words. He is the Potter, we are the clay.
