Joyce Rupp... Be the imperfect cup that is well loved and used






“if I wait to be
perfect
before I love myself
I will always be
unsatisfied
and ungrateful

if I wait until
all the flaws, chips,
and cracks disappear
I will be the cup
that stands on the shelf
and is never used”

― Joyce Rupp

  3. I did that whole Cup spiritual exercise with Rupps guidance years ago. Think I'll reread my "scriptures". Just heard a meditation about imperfect knitting. That suited me perfectly too.
