New Heart

the drone of the vacuum allowed
her to hear the still, small voice

she knew her heart was embellished and adorned in a new way
new earrings didn't matter

it made her smile in the empty room
as she stood by the dusty window

You know, God does visit us.

A lot.

It's just that most of the time we're not at home.

  1. What a glorious heart she has, so full of love and listening. I believe that I too have heard that voice. Strange how we often hear it in the most unusual of places and times. I love your quotation. It sounds like something Annie LaMott might have said.
