Beautiful Vase / February 24, 2019 / Salma Pope
The teacher continued, "The candle will illuminate the cracks in the vase, so you can see them better. When you can see the cracks clearly, then you will know what you need to do about them. In the meantime, the candle will shine its light through the cracks, and it will fill the vase with warmth. It does not have to be full of flowers to be beautiful in some other special way."
One afternoon a few days later, after all of the children had left for the day, the teacher once again let her mind and her eyes wander to the drawing of the cracked vase. She immediately noticed something wrong with the picture, and leaned over to get a closer look. Someone had colored in the bottom of the crack. It was very subtle. In fact, it had hardly changed at all, but she had stared at the picture so often that she could tell even the slightest change. Surely, someone had snick into the room and colored the bottom of the crack.
