Life Has Carved Her Callouses

I love this message and the way it was so well crafted by Melody! Thank you, Melody, for creating and sharing this with the world.

Life has carved her callouses

upon my tender heart,

my response was toughening

the epidermis part –

so soften me, oh Holy Son,

with springtime’s timely rays,

that roughened edges would not keep

my soul from grasping grace.
