I’m So Proud of My Heart


broken heart safety pin

I’m so proud of my heart.
There were times my heart couldn’t breathe.
It has been; played, hurt, naïve, deceived and dishonest, bruised,
cheated out of affection, broken from grief, in denial, disappointed, disrespected,
exhausted from caring too much, heavy with worry and shame, wanted to stop
beating and felt alone.
Yet, my heart has not turned to stone.
It still works! It is resilient. It is not cold.
It is warm with life, hope, love and gratitude.
It is on fire to be one of God’s vessels to pour
out love, encouragement and peace.
I love my heart. It is wiser, stronger and better … not bitter.
