Our hearts do not actually hold the shape of a heart. They don't actually fly away from us. They don't actually break into a million pieces after we've been broken. Beats might flutter, but the organ certainly doesn't. Then why do we feel things from the heart? Why has the heart shape become a symbol of love? Why not a star or a spleen or a hand? Okay, definitely not a spleen. And okay, I guess the blood pumps faster from, go figure, the heart, when our body reacts to certain surprising or exciting hiccups in the universe.
I know. The ambiguity of this post is killing me, too, but the beat goes on. *laughs*
Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart.
- Psalm 37:4
