O Great Love,
As we think about Valentine’s day, we bring you our hearts…
patient or “I’m so done and over with this” hearts,
full or aching-with-hollowness hearts,
hearts that sing and
hearts now long silent,
We wear our hearts as the badges of honor they are – any heart that keeps beating love in a broken world is a testimony to grace, to resurrection, to you….Somehow, God, you find a way to curl yourself into the most closed hearts…to make your way through the heart’s minefield, knowing where to step, where to heal.
We know, God, that broken, beautiful hearts are powerful – the world was changed, is changed, because of your broken, beautiful heart. And there’s beauty to be found in the pieces…
Thank you, God, for holding us in your heart. It’s where we’re safe, secure, at peace. In the name of Jesus, Love made flesh, Amen.
