To repair an object rather than allowing its service to end at the time of its damage or breakage.
The application of the precious metal not only increases the value of the piece but adds to its unique beauty displayed through its imperfections.
Isn't God Good! His effect on our lives is the same. It is to always add value to us and to display the beauty of who we are because of what He has brought us through rather then to remove the remembrance of it at all - no matter how painful it was initially.
The addition of His heavenly elements to our broken places makes each of us uniquely beautiful and irreplaceable.
Thank you Lord, You make all things Beautiful in time .. Even from the ashes comes the Crown."
