My heart is heavy + full

Today my heart is heavy and full.
With all the news surrounding the tornado in Oklahoma, my heart is heavy.
Reading about all the life lost, my heart is heavy.
Seeing pictures of the destruction, my heart is heavy.
Knowing that my family (quite of bit actually) is safe in Oklahoma, my heart is heavy.
Rejoicing in the birth of Sam, my heart is full.
Awaiting news of the birth of a friend's son, my heart is full.
Conversations with my sister, my heart is full.
Dealing with this seemingly never-ending anxiety, my heart is heavy.
Praying, always praying, my heart is full.

Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do Igive to you. Do not let your heart be troublednor let it be fearful.
