Think with the heart
Feel with the heart
Speak from the heart
Heart ache

Feelings—emotions
are a product of the
spirit

Pain a product of the body

Feelings, emotions
are often
a reflection of
the developing
Christ within us

Sad, happy, love
horror, fear, ecstasy,
lust, jealousy, rage,
reverence, awe and
a blush come
from within
from out of
the spirit within

Some
a little Christ
Some more

Some led astray
Some blinded
Some fooled
Some lost
Some none

Tears
A smile
A blush
A glow

Emotion
Attitude
Posture
Expression

The spirit within
shows out through
the body

The person: The Christ within.

We will recognize each other
Those with Christ
and those without.

So sad

Leads to
great tears
of blood

We anticipate the
coming of Christ
to us
or
us to Him
or Him within

Not I, but Christ in me.

We as
“jars of clay”
ordinary
breakable
Chosen by
by the Almighty
God

Blessedly Amazing

Much to ponder here. I feel like I need to read this over to get additional insight - much depth here, it seems.

I like you last line best with your analogy of jars of clay.

Lovely poem exploring human emotions and our conection to our Creator and the Christ through our feelings.
