Happy TWLOHA Day!!


Happy 2nd annual To Write Love On Her Arms Day!!

“Love is something better..
love is that simple answer to so many of our hardest questions.
Don Miller says we're called to hold our hands against the wounds of a broken world, to stop the bleeding. I agree so greatly.

We often ask God to show up. We pray prayers of rescue.
Perhaps God would ask us to be that rescue,to be His body,
to move for things that matter.
He is not invisible when we come alive.
I might be simple but more and more, I believe God works in love, speaks in love, is revealed in our love. I have seen that this week and honestly, it has been simple:
Take a broken girl, treat her like a famous princess, give her the best seats in the house…
Tell her something true when all she's known are lies.
Tell her God loves her.
Tell her about forgiveness,
the possibility of freedom,
tell her she was made to dance in white dresses.
All these things are true.

We are only asked to love, to offer hope to the many hopeless.
We don't get to choose all the endings, but we are asked to play the rescuers.
We won't solve all mysteries and our hearts will certainly break in such a vulnerable life,
but it is the best way.
We were made to be lovers
bold in broken places,
pouring ourselves out again and again until we're called home.”
lets love...
Heather.
