From Woeful to Joyful


“Fairest Lord Jesus/Ruler of all nature,/O Thou of God and man the Son,/ Thee will I cherish,Thee will I honor,/ Thou, my soul’s glory, joy and crown.

Fair are the meadows, fairer still the woodlands,/Robed in the blooming garb of spring/Jesus is fairer, Jesus is purer,/Who makes the woeful heart to sing.”

How blessed I am that I was reared in a church and continue to attend a church where the great hymns of the faith are sung!  Today celebrate spring by belting out the above song.  No heart can be woeful but must become joyful when such words peal forth.  You, like me, will “take heart” as you enjoy the “blooming garb of spring” bursting out all around.




About.  Introducing me~Bridgette~lover of hearts and most of all God.  This blog purposes to encourage.  Please let me know if it does…or if it does not.  I need the encouragement and the criticism,too, as I am learning to blog and to develop a following.   My life-long writing dream streams into reality here…today…now!  Welcome and join me as we “take heart!”

Introducing…Take Heart!


Hello Brave New World!

I enter the arena of Word Press which should make my blogs much more accessible~scary!  Also, the “Happy Heart” focus of my google blog has become more outward focused.  Take Heart Ministries has evolved.  In Matthew 9:22 Jesus spoke to the woman who had suffered for twelve years with a blood issue.  “Take heart, Daughter, your faith has made you whole.”

That passage resonates my whole being!  Take heart!  Be encouraged…Daughter!  Don’t you love it that He called her Daughter?  She just wasn’t some woman in the crowd.  Neither are we just a nameless, faceless lost-in-the-mad-shuffle-of-life woman.  Take heart!  Remember who you are!  A  daughter of the King!  A chosen possession!  Oh, My Beloved, may I be a joy to You today!
