Love, hearts, candy, flowers (especially roses, as a symbol of life, love and beauty), never really go out of style, or who would tire of hearing “I love you with all my heart.” Surely harmony and less war would be the end result. Peace would reign.
Could I just share a little heart song with you? Actually it’s about my recent heart surgery. I’d been thinking and praying “create a clean heart within me Lord.” My friend Carla insists God gave me a new heart.
I’d been having some health issues for quite some time. A team of doctors together decided I needed heart surgery, so early morn May 24, my husband and I headed for St. Mary’s Hospital, not knowing how long my mini-vacation would last.
Well, before I knew it I was on a cart being wheeled into the operating room. The surgery went quite well. I woke up to being fed some awesome welcome little pieces of ice. My surgery went relatively well, until about two days later when my heart rate fell very low while I was on a stroll.
I came to surrounded by at least five anxious looking nurses, wondering what was going on.
As the new valve got broke in a bit, the thought of adding a pacemaker vanished. A bit over two weeks at the hospital and St. Anne’s and it was good to be home.
I hope everyone still has the message of Valentine’s Day in their hearts. “I Love You, “ “Be Mine,” Bee My Honey.” On the spiritual side, “Sacred Heart of Jesus have mercy on us.” “Immaculate Heart of Mary pray for us.”
It all boils down to our heart connecting to God and our neighbor (everyone). Those heartstrings are mostly made of love and forgiveness and are made available from the greatest source of love - God Himself.
We live in a heartbroken world. Let’s pool together enough loving hearts to soften the hard hearts. That everyone will seek and find the loving heart of Jesus, meek and humble.
From my heart to yours. I love you.
