Where do broken hearts go?

Sometimes an unexpected confrontation with the past hits you so hard,
that you burst into tears and you can’t stop crying for hours,
because the pain which is suddenly flooding your soul
is just too overwhelming to bear.

    There are opportunities every day to find unexpected tears filling your eyes; when we sing together in the morning, when I walk alone on dark and rocky trails, and when we get to watch students respond with vulnerability to the truth. That truth I still struggle to know in my own heart.

    The highlight of the season for me was Christmas Eve. Even the brightly wrapped wonder of Christmas morning could not compete in my heart with the rituals of the night before Christmas. The routine was sacred: Homemade pizza eaten around the long dining room table with the Santa tablecloth. Christmas caroling to nearby friends. New flannel pajamas. Finally we gathered in front of the fireplace for the best ninety minutes of the year. Mom read the Christmas story from Luke. We sang carols in shaky four part harmony. Kurt recited “Jest ’Fore Christmas.” Our rag-tag family band blasted out heinous crimes against the canon of Christmas carols that should have been punishable by law. Dad always ended the evening with something profound–a deep Christmas thought that inevitably left us in grateful, holy tears. Life didn’t get any better than Christmas Eve.
