May you have a little heart burn—
The Easter kind.
The depressed disciples on the Emmaus road
Didn’t know they were walking
With the risen Lord
On Easter Day.
They were busy rehearsing all
While they walked with the stranger.
But after the breaking of the bread
And the opening of their eyes—
After realizing they had been with
Jesus, they said:
“Did not our hearts burn within us
While he talked to us on the road,
While he opened the scriptures?” (Luke 24:32)
I bless your heart to warm
Into a glow
Of authentic joy,
For your soul
To light up
For your deepest self
To awaken with a blaze
Jesus is alive!
