From a retired pastor-friend:

During World War II a bomb scored an indirect hit and shattered the beautiful
stained-glass rose window in the Reims Cathedral, France. The members of the
congregation got down on their hands and knees and picked up all the small glass
fragments of the window.

After the war, they hired some of the most skilled workmen available to rebuild
the window, fragment by fragment, from the pieces they had saved. Today, the
rose window in the Reims Cathedral is more beautiful than ever before.

God can take our broken lives and our shattered dreams and reshape them into a
life that is more lovely than before.
