Courage Dear Heart

"Courage, dear heart".

It's impossible to not feel a little overwhelmed by all the evil in the world today. My heart has been heavy for all the sadness that has taken place in the past few days (weeks and months even). How can such evil people exist? How has our world turned into such a hateful place? My heart aches with all the heaviness.

"Courage, dear heart".

I can't fix the world, but I can be the world to my family and friends and loved ones. But how can you do that when you just want to hide in bed under the covers and never leave the safety of your home?

"Courage, dear heart".

I'm reminded of a quote from C.S. Lewis, and it seems very fitting for today's circumstances. When it's hard to understand the hurt and evilness, when it's hard to live life, when it's hard to just be.

"Courage, dear heart". 


“But no one except Lucy knew that as it circled the mast it had whispered to her, "Courage, dear heart," and the voice, she felt sure, was Aslan's, and with the voice a delicious smell breathed in her face.” - C.S. Lewis, The Voyage of the Dawn Treader

I wanted something beautiful, needed something beautiful to remind me to take courage and live life. There are a thousand and million "what ifs", and we are not promised tomorrow. We need to live today, love today, give today, and make today count. I hope this quote brings you a little bit of peace and happiness. Please print it out and let it remind your heart to have courage, and live and love today. The only thing that will overcome all the hate and ugliness in this world is love, and to love we need to have courage. 


"Courage, dear heart".

Courage to show my children they can be the good in the world, and good will always be greater than evil. Good always triumphs over hate! It may get uglier before it gets better, but there will always be good people in this world. Always. So, my friends, have courage. Be the good. Don't let the darkness win, let your light shine! 
"Courage, dear heart".
