hardness of heart

Hardness of heart. We read about it often. Can we recognize it when it happens.
Right now I can.
I have hardness of heart over a son who doesn't want to communicate with us.
I have hardness of heart over Jesus' words to Pelianito "time is short". He has been saying that for a while. I choose to believe, though I have heard it before.
I have hardness of heart over the state of the disbelieving world. I would like to walk away from it all.
But to what purpose? Can a man live like an island without contact with others.
No. I am stuck here and now, in the here and now.

I better go pray Psalm 51.

  1. I really identify with you. Our son is the same. Such a heavy cross to bear.
