My heart beats for you. It is filled with a love that wants to jump out of my chest, and yet I have found ways to keep it inside. I have built fences where you want love to roam freely. I have penned in the beauty of love and forgiveness, rather than watching them run wild. I have kept so much inside for myself.
Forgive me, O Lord, and help me grow. Just as the flowers twist toward the window, may my life lean toward your Son, bending in gratitude and reaching in praise. May praise of your holy name be forever on my lips.
