Take Heart


Take heart beautiful one.
In our Father’s eye, you are beautiful and whole.
From brokenness, you are restored when you speak to God.    
By grace, you are restored.
Hopeful, may you be filled with joy.
In our family today, we clasp each other–
Take heart.
Restored, it feels so good.
In the presence of the Holy One, we are
Filled with Joy.
We enter this day with some small worries.
Our worries are large as we see them.
Cast them away!
Take heart beautiful one.
Blessings in this sunny day.


About Tom Bolton

I'm a Husband and Dad, an Enterprise Systems Manager at the City of Milwaukee, and a Disciple and Lay Servant at First United Methodist of West Allis. I love working beside young people. As I study the Bible, sometimes I feel moved to work through my understanding by writing poetry. I also am going through a process to discern my calling, and to learn more about Christian Leadership. Sometimes I just feel like writing about something that grabs my attention too.
