HEART DROP: When a person, either directly or in a cryptic way, gives you a peek into their heart. It may be through actual words, or you may pick up on a feeling, perhaps sadness or loneliness. It could even be a simple preference or “like” of theirs, such as their most-loved high-maintenance coffee drink or a favorite sports team. Or maybe you sense anxiousness or worry in the tone of their voice when they bring up an upcoming medical test or job interview.
When we hear a heart drop, we can brush it aside and go on our busy way. Or, we can respond with an act of kindness. It may be words of reassurance, a clever small gift, an act of service, or gift of your time.
Hearing a heart drop is an art we can intentionally cultivate–a sort of listening between the lines. It can lead to the most wonderful times of encouragement as we make it our habit to listen and to love.
