here is my heart

here is my heart.

i found it whilst wandering along the shore,

enjoying my children, my husband, the sun, moon and sea.

sometimes it seems too insignificant (my heart)—

too fragile to house the spirit God gave me,

too small to stuff so much fear and hope in that tiny beating space.


—it is all i have, and it is everything i have—

and it is full.

here is my heart.
