“In its cage of bones the heart beats through the hours and days of our lives. Mostly we forget how it labors and that it might have another life apart from this faithful, physical service.

We have a hint about that when we are moved to tears, to love, to service, to silence and meaning. There is a flutter inside, and we might say that something stirred the heart. In such moments the spirit is released into gratitude — not the groveling I don’t deserve it kind, nor the usual polite thank you kind, but the simple fact that something opened the door of our habit cage and a pure moment happened — a free joy. Something given let the heart be free in recognition and willing participation.”
