Reflections Upon A Chaldean Heart
By Evon Elias :: 49767 Views :: Religion & Spirituality

"From deep within a faithful church, a priest tells his loved ones to read a section of the Gospel of Matthew from the Holy Bible and reflect on it, bringing about words and emotions that then form into prayers.

With this reflection, I only hope and pray for it to touch the depths of your heart, because it came from the depths of mine. May it help you to realize who we are... what we are... and what He did.

It is in moments like these that changes take place, that the shape of the person's faith is molded into something new... something better.

With love to each and every one of you...

I wish that this brings you to a new level, makes you grow from someone you once were, to the person that you are meant to be.

God Bless."
