Broken Crayons Still Color Quotes by Shelley Hitz
Crayon Sayings and Quotes
This is genius in simplicity and has a flawless execution. In life we all have defining moments, experiences or levels of ability that can have a negative impact on us. Or we can be a broken crayon; altered by the process but still a crayon of colour and delight. I guess how we handle the events or abilities is our decision and perhaps is more powerful than the event or ability itself. When our little girl passed away just days after she was born, we became the new parents without the need to push a pram.
I have been pondering over this saying for the last few weeks, "Broken Crayons Still Color", I have seen the books, the quotes, the sermons and all the messages and all seem to emphasize the same context. I am still useful in my brokenness. I am sure by now we all understand the concept, the idea is that you can still use a broken crayon, that it doesn't mean it's not a crayon because it's broken it simply means, it may not look like it should, it may not appear to function as it should, but if you give it a chance, it will still color, it will still produce a work of art. Because it is broken doesn't meant it doesn't lose it's function. People are the same way, we give up on people way too soon. Broken people, are broken, but it doesn't mean that they aren't useful and don't serve a purpose in our lives.
As a child a new fresh box of crayons was like winning the gold star of the day for me. The smell of the new crayons as I would pry open the box to reveal the perfect point of each vibrantly colored prize- this perfection made my heart soar. When a box of new crayons had one break — I would discard it. When the paper would become tattered I would throw the crayon over in a tin where I hid away all the broken and imperfect ones. This tin was full of broken colors as a symbol for me to let perfection reign and do away with the imperfect.

I stumbled across this quote over a year ago and saved it to my phone! Do you ever do that? See a quote , then save it to your phone or post it up onto social media because it speaks so loudly and clearly to you? Well this quote resonates with me, because once upon a time I felt very broken and I did not see that in my brokenness I could be used for greatness. I knew I was a big mess, and I used to believe that my life would always be one big mess, and I did not think that I deserved greatness! There was a stage in my life where I used to feel extremely empty, unfulfilled, and very lonely.
