chest pains

Do you ever get the sensation that joy is piercing your heart? It is pain and it is joy and it is fleeting. Moments when you hear a chord struck, lyric sung, a vision of a full moon on a clear night or reading a word and your breath is taken away. It is a real physical pain. I am stunned when I feel it and I lament it passes so quickly. I am thankful for the experience and know that it is pure grace - and yet, I continue to end up sinning against those I love. Pathetic.

I love that feeling, as painful as it can be. Honestly, I think that feeling is the reason I listen to the music I do. I find songs that can stir up that particular chest pain. (I could go on about this, saying all sorts of mushy things, but Ill leave it at the music.)
