Let your heart be like the sea, ever open, brave and free!
I am a person who loves words and loves heart….
I long to live with a heart that is ever open, brave and free….
As I think back to the days before Len’s funeral, one of my favorite things we did was gathered pictures. Pictures that reminded us of each phase of Len’s life. Pictures from when he was little to pictures of him with his own little ones…
Pictures that spoke of his passion, his adventure, his commitments and his love….
But one picture I have always liked and speaks to Len’s spirit is the picture of him driving the submarine. I am sure he would correct my language in that I am not sure one “drives” a sub, but Len spent many many months of his life on a submarine…
And so as I think of another picture where Len is standing watch and all that surrounds him is the sea….
Len was a big thinker and I believe that he longed to live ever open, brave and free….
And so tonight, I am considering what does it look like for my (or your) heart to be like the sea….ever open, brave and free?
In these last weeks I am reminded that not everyone will grow to be old, so, live today the way you desire to live and be remembered….
Live ever open brave and free in your thoughts, beliefs and actions!

Ever open, brave, and free… rooted and grounded in Christ’s love which, ” gives us the strength to get up and do what’s got to be done…”
Trish … your loss is our gain. The journey of your loss has opened so many doors, thoughts, dreams and longings in my own heart. Thank you for allowing us to journey with you.
