I've never really liked that quote until tonight. Today was rough.. I think I was more transparent with the interns today than I've ever been with a group of people. vulnerable. After lunch I think I was walking around with tears just below the surface and brooding thoughts and questions and statements.. waiting to be blurted out. Then I cried (which is good, but a new thing for me) and needed to talk to my friend, Kristin. This summer challenges me. I've been trying to rise to the challenge to grow from that and yadda yadda...but as my friend reminded me, I can't forget my heart in changing my focus. I can't forget where my heart was captured by the Lord. in Love. Not the fatherly love-- that's a new and exciting thing-- the Bride/Bridegroom love. That's what gets me excited. That's my passion. the Ravished heart of the bridegroom. That's my first love.
They say you never forget your first love. I'm good with that.
