Pieces of My Heart

I first experienced little pieces of my heart walking around in the world in 2005.  It was a shocking experience.  Never before had emotions been so real or raw.  We decided to do it again and in 2008 another piece of my heart entered the world.  Then in 2011 a third piece of my heart began running around.  

In those 7 years the pieces of my heart have had to deal with rejection, hurt feelings at the hands of other kids and adults, anxiety about moving, anxiety about school, and just plain ole' anxiety (they are parts of my heart after all).  They have sung a happy song, giggled until their sides hurt, questioned, loved, and grown.

An now, in December, another piece of my heart will join the world.  Sometimes I shudder to think what these pieces will face in a world so devoid of Christ but I pray all the harder that these pieces of my heart will shine all the brighter; to be a beacon for others to see the love of God for the man.
