Quote

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 ...
Lock it up safe in the coffin of your selfishness.
But in that casket .... it will change.
It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable ....
The only place outside Heaven where you can be perfectly safe
from all the dangers and perturbations of love
is Hell.
C. S. Lewis

WOW. Amazing quote for me today.

I missed having a “Christian Blog” so I started one today. Its about my struggles mostly because that’s what my spiritual life feels like – a huge battle, and I don’t know who’s winning. I hope you stop by to visit: Prodigal Daughter
