The human heart is the place in which our emotions dwell, and from which we show the world how we’re feeling right now. The human soul is the processing station, that takes those emotions, blends them with experience, and makes us who we are. The soul gives us the resources to process our pain into wisdom, and depth of character. And ultimately, the soul will create in us the gifts we bring to heal a hurting world, and to practice compassion, and strive for justice. May we recognize that anguish and pain and mourning, though sometimes difficult to endure, are turning us into exactly who we need to be. For becoming soulful, we give thanks and praise. Blessed Be, and Amen.
