“There is a crack, a crack, in everything.
That’s how the light gets in.”
– a “crack-pot”
I had a very profound thought during the night. I know I’ve read it somewhere but I can’t think where.
A couple of days ago I was telling someone how it went with my son on Thursday and I made the very sad but nonetheless true statement that ‘my heart will always be broken.’
Even as I said it, I sensed the truth; the immense power in those six words.
I was reflecting on this during the night and almost immediately another thought came to me, almost from outside myself, carrying the wisdom and grace of a deeper realisation:
‘This is where the light gets in.’
Suddenly the balance shifted from despondency to hope. I had a wonderful visual image of God’s divine grace surrounding the broken pieces of my heart like a pure golden light, filling in all the cracks and making it stronger and more beautiful than ever.
