I haven’t told my garden yet—

haven’t told my garden yet—
Lest that should conquer me.
I haven’t quite the strength now
To break it to the Bee—

I will not name it in the street
For shops would stare at me—
That one so shy—so ignorant
Should have the face to die.

The hillsides must not know it—
Where I have rambled so—
Nor tell the loving forests
The day that I shall go—

Nor lisp it at the table—
Nor heedless by the way
Hint that within the Riddle
One will walk today— 
Emily Dickinson
  This week marked the eighth year of a painful anniversary for my family.  Eight years ago my little sister went home to be with the Lord and left us.  Time is supposed to heal wounds, but truthfully, it doesn’t.  Yes, it soothes and sometimes numbs the wound but the pain is is still there. You will try and bury it deep down inside your heart, but won’t succeed.   Years will go by, yet the pain will always be there in some small way.  Many people experience this kind of grief, and I felt it at a young age.
   This week the song ” Tell Your Heart to Beat Again” by Danny Gokey inspired me.   My mom shared it with me, and I loved it.   The message behind it is a powerful one. Its ok to grieve and struggle, but in the end we need to let go and live. We can’t hold on to our pain forever, and that is ok. Shutting down and ignoring all the beauty and good in our lives isn’t what God would have us do.
 Remember that no matter what trial, struggle or pain you are going through, God is there for you.   This song really encouraged me, I hope that it does the same for you. Have a great weekend!
Tell your heart to beat again
