Have you ever wondered about the
word "Feelings"? So many people say I have a feeling
that's wrong or that's right and you say how can you go on feelings?
I think feelings are so very important. Close your eyes and hold out
your hand, now touch your hand, feel the sensation of a touch.
Well it's not just the touch of your hand but its something that goes to
the brain and to the heart. Our feelings come from our heart, the
brain is involved because it put the thoughts into our heart.
Well, Jesus works
that way, only He comes totally from the heart. Out of the
abundance of the heart, we as God's children should speak and

just on book learning but depend on your feelings also. The heart
is such a wonderful thing, it is what makes us cry and makes us laugh.
Not words from books into the mind, but words that go into the heart
that turns into feelings. Love is what makes the world go round
yet no one has ever figured out what it is and how it becomes.
