HUMBLED, HURTING HEARTS HEAR

THE MARY TYLER MOORE SHOW is my all-time favorite TV comedy. In the theme song, “Love Is All Around,” there is a line sung: “(She) who can take a nothing day and suddenly make it all seem worthwhile.” LOVE THAT! Mary Tyler Moore was also a longtime animal welfare advocate who by helping animals “suddenly made it all seem worthwhile.”

(God’s Sonnet by Timothy J. Verret; “it’s how I cope to hope in living for Jesus Christ through the last line of THE MARY TYLER MOORE SHOW theme song: ‘You’re gonna make it after all.'”)

You could take a nothing day and make it

something about how you are forgotten.

You could take a something day and make it

nothing but about how you are rotten.

I take a nothing day and I’m unseen.

I take a something day and I’m unloved.

My humbled, hurting heart hears, “You’re obscene!”

Why so mean? Have not I journeyed Beloved?

“I hear the humbled, hurting hearts out there,”

says Jesus. “I have one of those, as well.

There are humbled rooms Father God will spare

for the hurting. Knock or ring Heaven’s Bell.”

It is said that one day we’ll disappear.

God? Yes? Let our humbled, hurting hearts hear.
