Broken Crayons Still Color*

Inadequacy is not your name.

It is an emotion, a feeling.

It can be overcome because broken crayons can still color.

Delayed dreams do not have to be denied.

Live Your Dream.

Be your dream.

Broken crayons can still color.

You are purpose on legs.

You are purpose in human form.

Use your brokenness to help others in their brokenness, for eventually, He rebuilds us all to become whole.

On your path to wholeness, let your light so shine among men, for

Broken crayons can still color.

Let us see you color.
