Perspective is everything in life. I have always been one to pick up objects that people put out on the street and take them home to fix.  I see treasures where others see junk. Today I finished a project given to me by a friend. This guitar was dropped and broken and about to be thrown in the dumpster when they remembered me. The fixer of broken things. I think of this in relation to life and my relationship with God. I am glad God does not trash us when we are broken. Read the poem to see how it turned out.



What do you see when something is broken

An object to discard

Or an object restored


Half-full or half-empty

Perspective is everything

Affects all of life

We all become broken

At some time in our life

Thinking we are beyond repair

But God sees us otherwise

And restores us with his grace


His perspective

His Love

Are always there

We always have our place

  1. Are you called Roth ? What is your name ?
    I am speechless at your wonderful message.
    How beautifully you have repaired that Guitar.
    Truly you are rightly called “The Fixer of Broken Things”.

    And Yes, we must remember that GOD never discards us, when he are down and broken. HE ALWAYS RESTORES US.

    Visit my Site and read “Miracle of Personal Touch”, “Cranky Old Man” and “He and Me”. I’m sure you will like them.

    Your Poetry Style is fabulous.

    Love Cattie

    • Your are vey kind to say all those things. My name is Dwight. I feel that understanding God should connect with what happens around me. It is very simple and not so complicated as many would make you think.
      I will check out your pieces!
      Thank you again.


      • Interesting. I am sure it has a meaning but I am not sure what it is. When I was born my mom named me Dwight after a famous evangelist out of Chicago named Dwight L. Moody. It was right after WWII and some people thought I as named for Dwight D Eisenhower the General who later became President!!
