Matters of the Heart

Matters of the heart affect us to our core, and they also produce effects that determine who we are and who we become. 
Matters of the heart are the most important things in our lives that move us deeply. They bring us joy and laughter, along with sadness and tears. They are things that touch our hearts, fill our hearts, and break our hearts. They are what make us fully human. Matters of the heart connect us to each other and to God.

Matters of the Heart

What really matters in life?
What protects us from descent and strife?

Things that stir and move our souls
Our true character, they shape and mold

Matters of the Heart are sent through prayer
They are about love, compassion, and care

They are when we love strong and deep
They can lead us to cry and make us weep

Heart matters cause us to attach and connect
They give us insight and make us reflect

Emotions and feelings are tightly bound to them
Knowing these hurts with pain can condemn

Heart matters can give us suffering from loss
But we still continue to give our hearts no matter the cost

Matters of the Heart make us stop and pause
They are the solutions, not the cause

The heart is our centering main life source
Matters of the Heart are our driving force

Tenderness and sensitivity are worn on the sleeves
They hold us close, not wanting to leave

Matters of the Heart make life worth living
They can deplete us, but they keep us giving

Matters of the Heart draw us to God, never to be alone
Matters of the Heart always help us find our way back home
