I AM (Forgiving, Strong, Weak, Etc.) Because He Was First

Your heart just breaks. And then gets fixed.

Your heart just breaks. And then gets fixed.

Had to pass the poem below along, because it is short, and the poem works well with the Audrey Hepburn quote– which I coincidentally got from an entirely other source but wanted to share (just because… I mean… she’s AUDREY: UN Goodwill Ambassador, kind, smart, beautiful… gotta get me one o’ them Audreys, if I can).

I Am

I was regretting the past
and fearing the future.
Suddenly my Lord was speaking:
My name is I AM.
When you live in the past,
with its mistakes and regrets,
it is hard. I am not there.
My name is not I Was.
When you live in the future,
with its problems and fears,
it is hard. I am not there.
My name is not I Will Be.
When you live in this moment,
it is not hard. I am here.
My name is I AM.
