"We can kill the love so that it stops hurting. But
then of course part of us dies, too. Or, we can ask God to open up
another route for that love to travel."
– Corrie ten Boom author of “The Hiding Place”
Open up another route in me. I am starting to feel angry, confused, resentful, bothered, discouraged
and tired. These emotions play on me, rising
while my defenses are down; determined to engage me in a competition against
myself. There are many days that I feel
like I was the one who died. It was
Shawn’s pulse that stopped beating, but please God, don’t let it be my heart
that stops loving.
Open up another route. Love was meant to live. Love was
meant to travel.
