Heart of Stone

I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; 
I will take the heart of stone out of your flesh
and give you a heart of flesh.
Ezekiel 36:26

I find myself sad tonight. There is no remedy, no way to fix everything that has gone wrong...only a dull and occasionally throbbing ache. I am okay, much better than I was two years ago and growing stronger. I just find that sometimes life is really hard.

On our Sunday outing we came upon some rocks stuck in the roots of a tree. One of those rocks was shaped like a heart. A heart of stone. Of course, had the heart caught in the root of the tree been soft, it would have been crushed and mangled long ago. It is possible the tree will win this battle yet and the stony heart will break, but only time will tell.

And why am I telling you this? I don't know. Perhaps it is because my mind is tumbling, and my thoughts jumbled. It's time for me to go to sleep so I can get up tomorrow and head off to love some little people and fix them (hopefully) yummy things to eat. Besides, it's raining and what better way to fall asleep than listening to the rain fall?


  1. ...a good night's sleep often changes things for the better.

  2. Your devotional thoughts should be put in a book....Daily Thoughts by Martha.
