      I recently asked a question here on Fab40. It was in reference to the rooms of your heart. There are many rooms. Would you share with me another room in your heart? I want to know about the forgotten room. You know its the one with all the boxes in it. The one that you throw everything in when someone just shows up at your hearts door.

        • Wow, that’s deep Cocco! Okay, this is the room where I stuff the guilt I have for not spending more time with my dad. I love him, and he doesn’t live far away. but I struggle to make myself go see him. Whoah, I told you it was deep!

        • Hmmmm, good question. I guess my room has an old, unrequited love in it. Not someone I would ever want to be with now, but the one person I will always wonder-why were we so awful to each other? And did you ever really love me?

        • Coach I love you and thank you for sharing your heart. I just want you to be encouraged that God is STILL in control. I believe that it takes time for us to evolve at just the right pace. Talk to your heavenly father for wisdom and he will give it to you. I know that you know that already. That room needs some attention. Maybe you could start by dusting off some good memories and allowing yourself to remember the good. A card just to say HI have a good ordinary day may be great as well. I am here anytime you want help straightning that room out. You can always PM me and I will be here. estatic

        • Cindy I love you too and I love your strength. estatic I want to thank you for sharing as well. I dont know what the situation was with him but I do know that there is not one part of our lives that is thrown away. There is a lesson in everything. Love is funny. You know that. The problem is many of us dont know what love is and cant recognize it. Some people feel they need to get out of a relationship but lack the courage to just be honest with the other person. Sometimes it is a tactic to just be mean hoping the other person will just leave. That is usually what happens. The person spends the rest of their life wondering why and what happened. Im not saying this is what happened in your case Im just saying that there are many reasons why things dont work out. I know this though, our destinies are written by a higher power and most times they do not look like our plan at all. Know that you are right where you are suppose to be. That room in your heart is taking up some space that is required by someone or something else. REDECORATE IT! Tell me what it becomes.estatic

        • Very deep question and answers.  Makes me think.  I have that room in my heart that’s full of boxes.  And I think it’s very neccessary for it to be there.  That’s the room where I store all the things I just don’t know what to do with or how to deal with.  There are a few boxes in there full of broken shards that someday I’m sure I’ll throw out.  There are boxes in there that some days I pull out, dust off and go thru, sigh and put them back and some I finally throw out.  

          Just as an example, there are two boxes in there labelled with my ex boyfriend’s name.  One box is full of wonderful memories, the other is I box I keep tied tightly shut that is full of guilt that I broke his heart.

        • Tulip I wish I was there because if I was I would sit beside you in silence for a while. Then as our hearts joined together I would hold you and weep. I would cry because the load that you carry has been heavy. Then when we were finished we would sleep. In the morning we would clean that room out and began to put new things in it one piece at a time.  As I read your comment I got this word for you sister. Guilt is kindling and the bad memories and old boxes are the wood. You possess the FIRE to burn the past and move on. PM me if you need to.  I am here and thank you for sharing your heart. I love you.

        • My room is half empty because I have been cleaning for awhile and it is a slow process but I have learned alot. I read the scripture, we must bring things to the light to be healed. My room was dark and hidden but I am in the process of healing and it sure feels good. Thanks for being you Coco you are one awesome lady that God uses mightely.

        • Cocco, thank you so much for those wise words.  You are right, I do need to take those tightly bound boxes of guilt out to the burn barrel and torch them.  I’m going to work on that.
