The house of the heart is more spacious than we can imagine. It is capable of holding more than we can dream. Sometimes it grows larger because our hearts break. God, who does not will the breaking, nonetheless knows what to do when the shattering happens, knows how to work with the fragments to create new passageways, new doors, new chambers . . . —provided we are willing.        Jan Richardson                                                  

Let us build a house where love can dwell . . .          Marty Haugen
