Living By Mending

I stumbled across this quote today from Eugene O’Neill: “Man is born broken.  He lives by mending.  The grace of God is the glue.”

What jumps out at me here is the “he lives by mending” part.  It occurs to me that much of a life story is defined by what broken parts we try to mend, how we try to mend them, and how “successful” we are at doing so.  Thankfully, the “Glue” is readily available and plentiful.
