something on your mind

“When you are sorrowful look again in your heart,
and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which
has been your delight.”

Kahlil Gibran

“Then love knew it was called love.
And when I lifted my eyes to your name,
suddenly your heart showed me my way”

Pablo Neruda,
Veinte poemas de amor y una canción desesperada; Cien sonetos de amor


(a wild persimmon in the middle of nowhere GA / Julie Cook / 2021)

Is there something on your mind?

Or might there be something more like a someone who is on your mind
rather than a something…?
as in the question should be…who is actually on your mind?

And thus might this thought of the something or someone who is
on your mind…be that an it or a they…are they or it most likely found
‘in’ your mind?

And if that thought of something or someone is indeed in your mind…
is it therefore not possible that the said something or someone is actually inside
your heart…and not merely in or on your mind?

And thus if the said thought of this something or someone is therefore on your mind,
in your mind as well as in your heart…
is this something or someone therefore not simply a part of you?

I thought so…

Moreover, I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you;
and I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and
give you a heart of flesh.

Ezekiel 36:26

  1. I am at the point to where I want nothing on my mind. I have learned all I care to learn, and it is now time to start forgetting stuff.

    My wife recently called a friend. They had met at the dialysis center and then the lady switched days, so my wife had not talked in a while. When the woman answered, she said that she was being prepped for surgery and the phone call had delayed the prep. My wife prayed with her, and the friend felt better. The friend is all alone in the Pittsburgh area, outliving friends and family. She had a bowel blockage and she now has a colostomy until the surgery heals, but my wife has had that happen numerous times. She gets an overpowering feeling to call someone and that person is in need of prayer at that moment. Yes, they are in your head and heart. And with Jesus there also, it makes the communication a lot easier.

    You, Kathy, and a host of family and friends are on my mind during my morning devotions. I think it’s because you’re in my heart ❤️. Even though we’ve never met.

    Mind, heart, soul – must have all three to be a whole. You took me on an interesting tour. Is this ESP? Or is it God’s nudgings?
