Heart Speak

I am back to humming (blogging...I just thing humming is clever). There's been a bit of a hiatus.
There have been times in my life when I fell off the map because my heart was broken and kind of small. Life is a great big sob-story when we use the eyes of our shruken hearts, that's for sure. Undoubtedly, we look back at these rocky times and think, "was it really that bad?" I'm not sure if this is helpful, but most of the time I reflect and then answer myself, "Yes. Yes it really was."I know my going gets rough when my broken heart stops talking to me, and when our hearts stop talking, there's not much else besides, "woe is me." I do not wish a silent heart upon anyone, though I know that they come.

Lately, I've been experiencing quite the opposite. This time, I've fallen off because I have been warmed. And my heart will not stop its happy chatter. Thank you, Luke for walking in, and for staying. You have invited me in. And I belong. And to God and His Grace my heart-speak is the purest it has ever been: thankyouthankyouthankyou.

  1. I know just what you're referring to in both your reflection of whether some past harsh moment was really so tough and then in realizing that you're so happy you rarely have much to write about. Enjoy it all. It doesn't matter if others don't think it was as bad as you made it out to be. What matters is that you pushed through it and can now look back on that time and see how far you've come.
