Bring Your Heart Back

Bring yourself back to the point quite gently. And even if you do nothing during the whole of your hour but bring your heart back a thousand times, though it went away every time you brought it back, your hour would be well employed.

- St. Francis De Sales (from On Meditation)

I am still marveling at the blooming flowers I sniffed and photographed over the Thanksgiving holiday, and thankful beyond words, for the soft air and sun of the past few days. And for the Chunky bar Michael brought me home from the easy way to my heart which goes away and needs to be brought back a thousand times an hour. 

Go gently on your own dear heart, even when it wanders.
