“The human heart has hidden treasures, in secret kept, in silence sealed.” Charlotte Bronte
In life we have many secrets… I don’t mean bad things, I mean the good ones that we cherish and share with only the closest of loved ones. Secrets shared by husband and wife, by sister’s & brothers, by the very dearest friends… secrets of those we would never betray. We all have secret dreams and hopes for our children, our futures, our retirement years… things we hope to accomplish, goals we strive to meet, places we wish to go and so on could go the list.
When you were a child did you ever do the ‘blood sister/brother’ thing- the ‘swearsies’ to always keep that secret? I remember doing all those silly childish things… but when I was a child it was for real, it meant something. Our children come to us now with their hearts secret hopes and fears, they come with laughter and tears, joys and sorrows… in secret they come to us. We must always respect their hearts pouring out, their sharing, their trust in us… and we must always keep praying, praying and praying.
As the song goes, “prayer is the hearts sincere desire”…
Until next time,
