I have a heart with many homes.
I relish the people He has so gracefully placed in my life, in the time that He gives them to me, to love.
I think of the lonely hearts; and sadly, I think that so often defines me.
Until, He takes me to my many homes, in His time, and He gently shows me love. He shows me that the truest friends and loves of your life will pick up as though no time at all has passed.
They will love you. They will hold you.
You will love them. You will hold them.
Your eyes will fill up at the hurts experienced out of their love. And they for you.
You will stumble into an ease of giggles at the smallest of things.
Your heart will beat to a new beat, because in that moment you are somewhere you know, you are known.
I’ll have to catch my breath, and so will you. At the lengths, the depths, the very heights our Maker has taken us, at the very thought that He placed you in my life for a season and me in your’s.
Our eyes will meet and we’ll know that without a doubt, we are loved.
In this moment together, in the one to come apart.
We’ll linger in the moments, we have been given.
We’ll know that we are not alone.
We will place these sweet, beautiful moments into our heart’s pockets for keeps,
because that is where they should be.
Carried within us- for those days when the weary heart of yours and mine, can’t seem to find the courage to get out of bed, and face the day. When the light seems to be dimmer and hope seems a little lost:
We’ll remember that the grace of our God is enough.
We’ll remember that He redeems the weary and the lonely days, the lost and the struggling-
that He redeems the irredeemable.
We’ll remember that we do belong together.
And His faithfulness will always prevail, by the grace of my God you and I will never, ever be alone. We will walk this road together, in light of His goodness and truth shown.
I’ll love you when you are with me and when we’re apart, because you will always, always have a piece of my heart.
