صورة في موقع الأنبا تكلا: مفاتيح القلب، حفظ القلب، الإيمان القويم - رسم أمجد وديع.

It is said that a righteous man sat with his wife with a rejoicing spirit and a cheerful face. There, a conversation arose between them:

You look very happy today. Is there any joyful news that I dont know of?

Im just happy because of our sons love and confidence in us.

What happened to remind you of his love?

Before going to his military service, he handed me all the keys of his room and the upper floor and even his personal closet. He also asked me to record a summary of all his phone calls. Hes a righteous son who never hides anything from us. Hes no secrets. Thats true, he gave us all his keys and he allowed us to manage all of his affairs during his absence. Do you know that the only key he took with him was the front door key of the house?

Why did he especially take this key?

He told me that he wont tell us when hes coming. It will be a surprise.

He carries that key. Its the key of his parents house. Hes opened his heart and weve opened our house to him as well as our spirits and we give him all our lives.

→ English translation of the story here at St-Takla.org: أعطه مفاتيحك، فيعطيك قلبه!

St-Takla.org Divider

God, receive all the keys of my heart, my daily thoughts, feelings and actions.

May You manage all of my daily affairs.

I will not hide anything from You.

I gave You all of my keys, so grant me Yourself,

And offer me Your bosom.
