Why does it hurt so bad?

Share this:

Why does it hurt so bad? Chuck Finley (my daughter’s pet rabbit) died earlier tonight. She’s devastated and hurting.

Hearts Don’t Judge

Share this:

Hearts Don’t Judge Hearts are meant to love and to be open – not to judge. When we judge others, it hurts our hearts. And, this pain makes us far less magnetic to our good. Said another way: when I am judging others, I have closed my heart to God. I have edged God out […]

Two Thoughts on Hurt

Share this:

I had a big a-ha today. It is not okay for me to be hurt or feel hurt. (Kind of a guy thing but also kind of a human thing.) But here’s the thing, when I don’t ignore it but actually tune in, my shoulder does hurt. And of course I’ve been hurt many times […]
