“Oh, have a heart,” one might say when playing around with a friend who is teasing.
Our SOCS prompt for today is “heart.” A word with much heart – loving heart, hurting heart, merry heart, angry heart. So where do I go?
My first inclination upon seeing the word was a remembrance of the two skilled craftsmen whom Moses assigned to build the tabernacle. Strange first thought but I have long admiration for those who have willing hearts to get things done. Seldom would I find a procrastinator in that group.
Current news which breaks our hearts is the devastation from the Turkey/Syria earthquakes. Twenty-three thousand projected as dead. Last count will probably be more than that. And just think of the injured, the illness caused by such environmental upheaval.
Ah, next week brings us Valentine’s Day. The candy hearts will melt in chubby hands. Large red velvet hearts will unite lovers, and sooth the great-grandmothers in nursing homes.
“Oh, my heart,” so says my sister as she shares precious pictures on Facebook.
I like passion. I like heart in sermons, lectures, and teaching. Have you ever said, “It seemed like the speaker had some good ideas, but her heart wasn’t in it?”
Have I put a little heart in this blog? I’m stopping before I start writing without my heart.
Thanks, Linda, for the prompt word “heart” as well as all the work you put forth in managing this SOCS event. https://lindaghill.com/category/stream-of-consciousness-saturday/
Thank you very much, Oneta! Thanks for your awesome invites, the many lives you have changed and motivated towards self-actualization and faith. Please drop a word and a prayer on my little effort in this way: https://silveroaknetwork.substack.com/
Definitely heart felt!!!
The news from turkey is heartbreaking! We had no idea so many lives lost…. Praying for this country and all of the families impacted by devastation. 🙏🙏🙏
Such a lot of grief and hurting. Takes faith and trust to know that God cares.
Wouldn’t it be wonderful if you and I could sit down with a pot of tea and have a heart-to-heart conversation 🙂
Change that a little. Won’t it be wonderful when we can sit down with a pot of tea and have a heart-to-heart conversation? No crunch by time restraints.
Heavenly tea! 🙂
It will more likely be heavenly wine, but this teetotaler can’t quite admit that yet. 😀
Ha! Me neither 🙂
