Bloom


“To love at all is to be vulnerable. 
Love anything, and your heart will certainly be wrung and possibly broken. 

If you want to make sure of keeping it intact, you must give your heart to no one, 
not even to an animal. 
Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements; 
lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. 

But in that casket- safe, dark, motionless, airless--it will change. 
It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable.”

-C.S. Lewis

I am not sure how often you check your comments or when you might see you were nominated so when you go to my page to see your mention, you will need to read the post "Humbled and Paying it Forward" from Friday, June 29th. The link to my blog again is http://tiesofgrace.blogspot.com/

Have a great day!

I'm so glad God brought this quote to your mind.Right now, those words make me feel panicky! Truly, they call me to repentance as I think of the ways I'd rather love things and order and "my space" rather than people. - Carla
