My Actual Heart

Updated on October 8, 2010

Today,


They read my heart

What a thought to,

Let them read my heart



Who are these eyes,

That I should trust to,


Let them see my heart



What will they think,


Should I be brave to,


Let them know my heart


I could not tell,


Why all that came to,



Let them touch my heart


To share

these thoughts,


With all their faults,


Was

alarming

for my heart



But

soft

their words,


Their

kindness brought,  Actual healing for my heart

      Thank you coffeesnob...even our best words are nothing compared to the glory of the Word. And yet we need the courage to share what He has placed within...when He calls us to do it.

      Love you, and I really appreciate your support and encouragement blessings to you
