All your heart holds…

This morning I posted these words on my friends Facebook page…

full heartPraying for you in everything your heart holds today! 

They are journeying through a very deep valley in the death of their 18-year-old granddaughter…

They were here just a few years ago when said good-bye to their grandson…

It is all very sad….

And yet having had been in similar space of loss just five months ago, I know that these days are all overshadowed with sorrow but a heart experiences so much in loss…

There is the presence of family and community….

There are memories and laughter…

There is joy in hearing from others how lives have been impacted by the person you love and have lost…

There is the turmoil of the present combined with the hope of eternity…

And then I think how each day we all experience a myriad of emotion….

Each of us has a heart that holds so much…

I often wonder what life would be like if we were people who were honest with one another about all our heart holds…

It is not only in grief that I desire for us to experience all our heart holds…It is my wish for each of us every day!
