Over the last couple of weeks two very dear friends of mine (in two totally separate, unrelated situations) have been going through some difficult, heart wrenching stuff. And at the risk of reducing their lives to a ‘blog post’, I just want to say: if I could fix it I would, if I could love you more I would.
Sometimes all I have to offer is a plagiarised prayer, but it is a prayer nonetheless. Thomas Merton sums it up pretty well. And I think that I have shared this before, but it is worth sharing again:
Our Eden is the heart of Christ
Let grace come, Jesus.
Your name is on my heart.
Your Holy Name is on the tower of my heart.
Let grace come and let this world pass away,
Jesus, You who are living in my exhausted heart.
