My Eclectic Blue & White

2 Timothy 2:20-21, Ephesians 2:10, God rescues and repairs
Talking about the Lord over sugary slices of Derby Pie, my friend said she liked my eclectic collection of blue and white dishes.

It all started years ago when I broke a few dinner plates. Instead of buying a new set, I started collecting different patterns of blue and white, especially on sale tables or at flea markets. 

This eclectic blending is somewhat like the family of God: we belong together despite our different patterns because we're alike in the most important ways.

But there's a major difference: I toss out my broken dishes. God's collection includes only broken dishes that He's rescued and repaired.

Those of us eating Derby Pie off my blue-and-whites that day are different patterns--we're from different denominations and backgrounds. But we've all been rescued, repaired and cleaned by Christ, and we're eager to serve at His table (Ephesians 2:10 and 2 Timothy 2:20-21).  

I'm so glad that many of you are at that table too!


  1. Well said, friend. I'm looking forward to the next slice of Derby pie and sweet fellowship around your table :)

  2. God is in the recycling business we often joke at Teen Challenge. Restoring broken lives and repairing broken hearts. Glad to be at your table ;)

  3. Hello Dear Gail, I loved this post! This is what I call up-cycling...
    Love the blue and white mix match idea so much! I am so glad we all have a reservation at the Master's table! Blessings Always, Roxy

  4. Beautifully, written. Yes, our breaks and chips are beautiful in God's yes because His strength is most strong there!

  5. I wondered if you had a Polish pottery collection? The first glance at the picture made me think of that! And what is Derby pie?? I may have to come and see you for that. :)

    1. No, not any Polish pottery although I like it :)
      Well, my friend made the Derby Pie, but I will find the recipe if you visit, my friend :)
