Measure Me

Nobody has ever measured,
even poets, how much the heart can hold.

~ Zelda Fitzgerald

How do we take the measure of a person and know how big he or she really is? Is it from the tips of the toes to the top of the head? Or is it the waistline or head size? I d o not think any of these simple measurements takes the true measure of a person into consideration.

I say, measure me by the size of my heart.  Take your tape measure and go around my heart, and include all the things my heart is touched by, and you will know how large I truly am.

The actions you take that spring from your heart have a far greater effect than those that come only from the mind or body.  Open your heart and allow it to guide you in your actions.

One can become famous for physical accomplishments, but only the accomplishments of the heart truly fulfill.  When one heart touches another, we have hearts beating in unison with no fear of rejection.  A heart filled with love is eternal and not measurable by our hand.

Give of your heart without measure.
