How Do You Mend a Broken Heart?

"Please help me mend my broken heart, and let me live again..." Such powerful words. Sung powerfully and from the heart on the 70's CD. Words that ring more true today than ever before. Words that are sung from a man who has felt the pain of hurt and a heart that needed mending. You can hear it in his songs and feel it as he pours his heart out on this new CD.

Words can heal and they can certainly hurt. And the same mouth that delivers those healing words and words of encouragement, can also at times deliver hurtful words--words that break someone's heart. Sometimes we take those words lightly until we realize they have hurt someone deeply. You can't recall those words or stop the damage they did. All you can do is admit you hurt the person and hope the pain is healed by the admission and the apology.

We should all be cautious before we speak words that hurt. We should all be careful before we say something that might cause pain to another. How can we mend a broken heart? It takes unconditional love and forgiveness. Something many of us are not willing to give and those broken hearts are not willing to receive.

Feeling sorry for breaking a heart today and hoping I can mend it again,
