In Arequipa you find  iron bars on most every window and iron fences around many buildings. Sometimes in lieu of the iron fences you will see  walls like this around the homes.  I find this very ingenious and intriguing.  They take broken glass and place it in the wet cement at the top of the wall.

I immediately thought about the walls we build in our own lives. We take the shattered pieces of our dreams and place them at the top of our walls, to keep others out.  Each piece of glass represents something; anger, pain, jealousy, fear, rejection.

Do you have shattered glass that is keeping others away?

For He himself is our peace, who has made the two one and has destroyed the barrier, the dividing wall of hostility...Ephesians 2:14
