I meet with a group of women once a week to discuss our faith.
We call it Bible Study, but it is more of a Study of Life
thru the lens of our faith.
Some of these women I've been studying with for years now. 
Since the kiddos were babies - crazy to think about.
When we first started I don't think any of us wore glasses while we read
our Bibles.  Today I looked around and all but one had glasses on - 
perched on their heads, hanging low on their noses -
colors of turquoise, red and black.  
It made me smile.
It also made me so thankful for them, for this group.
Today's question that really stuck with me was what does your heart look like?
If you had to describe your heart - how would you?
I had a recent experience with a family member where if I described
my heart in the moment it would have been grey. cold. hard.  I was mad.
My daughter called me out on heart - which broke my heart.
It also gave me the chance to turn my heart around.
I choose love instead of anger and apologized.
And guess what?
It felt so flipping good.
It was almost as if I could feel my heart turning back to how God
wants it to be - pink. warm and soft.
You see we all mess up - at least I do - bigtime.
Thats part of being human.  I think what sets us apart and where
the real growth comes in is when we allow ourselves to be vulnerable, 
human and try again - try to be better again.
I'm grateful for the discussion with this group this morning.
And grateful too that I had glasses to follow along with the reading!
