This morning as I pulled open the shade these bleeding hearts caught my eye. How beautiful and full of color I thought as I walked away. Suddenly it was as if God said, “Stop and take another look. Yes indeed they are beautiful for I made them. Look at how their hearts are split that’s why they are called bleeding hearts.” Then I thought about all the broken hearts that have been torn in two by abortion. The women who were told abortion was not only their right but it would fix “the problem”. When they agreed and followed through with the abortion their hearts were split in two and left to hang alone just like these bleeding hearts all on one limb. No one to care for them. No one to catch their tears or so they thought. Then in God’s undeniable way some of those bleeding hearts began to heal – they found out that God had been with them all along and caught every tear. Slowly, they began to trust, and eventually found love again. Their bleeding hearts no longer shed regretful tears but they overflow with peace and joy. They now have a strong desire to share God’s amazing grace with the other post abortive bleeding hearts. They no longer hang alone bleeding on that branch but now that branch has become the healing vine connecting each one of those bleeding hearts.
