Vast distances, long absences
Hurt and anger and confusion and more hurt
Challenges and poor decisions
Painfully deep wounds
Love reaches out, chances vulnerability, overcomes pride. It can be so deep and enduring…when strained or renewed, it’s almost tangible, a physical, gripping reminder of how it isn’t just emotion or a blind loyalty — it’s as much a part of you as your heart. But it will not die, not even from the worst injuries. It will grow along with you, hiding deep in your soul, waiting for a chance to shine through again.
It’s the foundation of forgiveness.
*Cheers to Carbon Leaf for an album title that fits my thoughts so well.
