Can I write an entire story — beginning, middle and end — in one hundred words? Is one hundred enough words to tell you of my broken heart? It crumbled to pieces one day many years ago. I let the fragments fall away, tumbling across the desert of my soul. You see, I caused it. It was my own choice that shattered my heart; it will forever haunt me.

But there is a happy ending to the story of my broken heart. An inner peace not achieved by my works of atonement, but given mercifully and freely by God who loves me.
