heart wide open

It was a salt in the wound day. A little girl sat with her back to me.  And after 18 months of play therapy, she finally spoke.  About the pain and the sorrow and the love she's given up on.

And all I could do was weep.

So that was my day.

And that's what we're here for, my friends.

Not just me, but all of us.  All of us who know Jesus, and hold onto hope in the dark.

We are here to listen and to weep and to bear the burdens of those who just have too much to bear.

So let's get up and do it again.

Hearts wide open.


Lyrics to Salt in the Wound :

I want to disappear Far from the folks I know I want to get an answer To why I was even born No one here can tell me What's been haunting me all my life Well this rat race has left me limping Cause I balanced on the edge of the edge of the knife.
Why am I here?
Oh what should I do? Well is this the point I'm trying to prove?
If there's a god in my head
Then there's a devil too How can I tell the difference When they both claim to be true Maybe God is God Maybe the Devil is me Well I just throw my chains on And tell myself that I'm free
Chains - are they really there?
Is this just in my head? Well I'll just stay in bed
Life sure has its meaning Over years I have postured the sun Thieves and preachers robbed me For many hats that I've hung Now with my heart wide open I listen to the wind just for a word Sure, I know it's futile But that's all I have in this world
To look down from the hill And howl at the moon All the tears I cried never salted any wounds Well the earth is so tender and cruel Well if you're not there it's still so beautiful
