High school relationships continued to be special heart connections. Broken heart connections heal in time, but sometimes not forgotten. Let us tuck those memories away and remem- ber the best of those times. Special heart connections with friends can never be forgotten. Many continue for a lifetime.
But most important of all and what we can never overlook is our heart con- nection with the one who gave us His heart. One who has loved us with all His heart. How can we be grateful for such a gift? Why not give Him all our heart? No heart to heart connection is greater.

Where are your heart connections? When did they first occur? Are they still there? What is the most important heart connection you have?
Another special heart connection
is one that I made with a precious Canadian girl just living in the United States temporarily. My passport has multiple entries into Canada and her passport the same coming into the United States. Phone calls and letters have kept the connection going strong.
I am thinking my first heart connec- tion began in my earliest memories. Remembering when I snuggled with my grandmother, how she shared her spe- cial memories of growing up and how she continued to nurture the love we shared throughout her entire life.
It seems that some heart connections can be fleeting, although still important, while there are other connections that can continue for a lifetime. Meeting
the love of our life seems to be on top of the list, followed by our children. Holding that child close while looking into their eyes can be the most special love connection in our lives. Watching them return that love as they grow
from year to year is a rewarding heart connection.

Then there was the first schoolgirl crush I had in the second grade con- necting my heart to the cutest guy at the lunch table who ate two sandwiches every day. Junior high heart connec- tions came next with my nervousness on steroids about the guy in English in the second row who was on the base- ball team.
Then perhaps one of the most spe- cial of all love connections has got to be with the grand children. How can my heart hold so much love? It just is bursting with love for my little ones. God is so good to bless us with these precious heart connections. When
my grandchildren even say my name it just makes that heart connection grow stronger.
My friend from second grade and I continued to connect with one another as we had hilarious times of talking and
