It's All About the Heart



A stone heart............

not a good thing to have inside your chest........


I found this rock in my garden yesterday.....it has been there for 9 years and this is the first time I have seen it!!

Isn't that the way it is when we let our heart get hard?  it can be there for years and years..but we just don't see it....

It is scary and very risky to keep your heart soft and vulnerable, especially when it has been hurt repeatedly....
but it is necessary to do this in order to be able to love truly.....

I am glad I have let God help me to be brave enough to keep my heart from turning to stone..this means I will get hurt again but self protection leads to hardness of heart...

and while hearts of stone are pretty in the garden, they are not pretty when they are inside of someone.....

I encourage you to examine yourself today..is there any hardness of heart in you that can lead to a stony heart?  don't let that happen..  humility is a much nicer coat to wear......

Guard your heart....keep it soft....so that love can flow from it.....

Love bears all things......and love NEVER fails.....

I am glad you stopped by today..

I hope to see you again soon....
