Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

April 02, 2011 (broken)


“To love at all is to be vulnerable.
Love anything, and your heart
will certainly be wrung and possibly broken.
If you want to make sure of keeping it intact,
you must give your heart to no one,
not even to an animal.
Wrap it carefully round
with hobbies and little luxuries;
avoid all entanglements;
lock it up safe in the casket
or coffin of your selfishness.
But in that casket
- safe, dark, motionless, airless -
it will change.
It will not be broken;
it will become unbreakable,
impenetrable, irredeemable.”
- C.S. Lewis

“How else but through a broken heart
may Lord Christ enter in?”
- Oscar Wilde
