    Thanks so much for your thoughts here, Emma. Though I’m from the States, I am definitely not wearing my heart on my sleeve. (In fact, I often tell my friends my heart is the size of a walnut.) I think you’re right that there are many factors that play in to how we deal with our feelings. I bury mine until they are too strong and I feel as if I’m going to explode. I’ve been in therapy the past few years and work with a wonderful counselor who is helping me learn to handle, pay attention to, and feel my feelings. It is no easy task and it’s been quite messy at times, but I can see progress. I very much appreciate your concluding thoughts about feeling our feelings but then allowing God’s word to speak to them. Thanks again, Emma, for such helpful thoughts.

    Thanks J: I’ve got a great mental image now of a walnut on my sleeve :-)!
