Grief & Kintsugi

Grief & Kintsugi
Japanese art of putting broken pottery pieces back together with gold.
✨ Kintsugi is the art of repairing something that has been broken with gold, with the understanding that the object is more beautiful because it has been broken. Like the art of Kintsugi, God repairs the brokenness in our lives and makes us more beautiful through the process. If you find that your heart is in pieces, God can mend and restore our hearts back together.
‘The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.’ ~Psalm 34:18
✨ The philosophy of Kintsugi can accompany you throughout your healing process. Kintsugi helps us see how there can be beauty in brokenness. Kintsugi’s strength is its intimate metaphoric narrative of loss and recovery, breakage and restoration, tragedy and the ability to overcome it. A Kintsugi repair speaks of fortitude, uniqueness and the beauty in survival, leading us to a respectful place of loss and hardship.
✨ In our grief, our broken hearts have become more open, more sensitive, more tender and more receptive to the light of beauty and kindness around us. Honor your loss, embrace your journey and hold on to your own beauty in brokenness as there is growth and healing in your resilience and His closeness to us.
