take my heart

I am about to start reading John O'Donohue's "Anam Cara," and I am ready for it to rock my world. And I just want to share this song with you, which perfectly captures three themes of late:

1. the restoration of childlikeness
2. profound heart connection
3. India

As the moon kindles the night
as the wind kindles the fire
as the rain fills every ocean
and the sun, the earth

your heart will kindle my heart.

Take my heart,
Take my heart,
kindle it with your heart
and my heart cannot be kindled without you

(without so MANY of my yous! Nathan - Jenny - Rilian - Mama - Christy - Everett - Eden - Daddy - Megan - Kelsey - Micah - Ann - Gideon - Rachel - Ella - Maria... and that is just the beginning.)
