“Fill your papers with the breathings of your heart.” – William Wordsworth
Many things cause her heart to sigh – Waves yawning across the shore; the pointed tracks stretching across the canvas of the sky as the sun closes its eyes and retreats beneath the horizon; a gentle breeze disturbing the leaves; the smile of an innocent; the winks of the stars as they whisper their secrets.
But few things make her heart breathe.
The written word; the heart of God; grace; a city of lights sitting on the edge of the world; the people who need to know Him.
And the combination of these things bring her to life. She overflows. She blooms.
She becomes alive.
And takes her first breath as a new creation.
