"For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also."
Yesterday, we finally had some warm sunny weather. I was able to pay some badly needed attention to my poor backyard. It had been abandonned since the last snowstorm. Flooded, muddy, still with some small snowdrifts in the corners, I ventured out. One of the first places I examined for signs of life, was the herb garden. I looked down and saw this:
Like my angelic friend Becky at Sweet Cottage Dreams, I see hearts all the time ~ or they see me.
I'm not sure when I started to notice this ~ I think it was about 10 years ago. I was involved in some pretty intense Spiritual Direction, with a very kind nun. Quite new to this, I was a little apprehensive at first. I don't relax very easily under circumstances like that, needing to be in control ( very Type A personality :o)~
One particular day, she had asked me to do some visualization. It was about being given a box to open by God. Normally I would have been shifting in my seat, wanting to glance at the time. This time was different.
When she asked my what I saw inside the box, I instantly said,
"It's a HEART!"
She smiled at me and said,"how funny, the first time my Director did this meditation with me, I said the exact same thing."
I knew that I was on the right track.
My heart is in nature.......always has been, always will be. That is where I always feel that I am close to God.
When you open your box, what do you see......how do you connect with God?
I hope that your answers leap out at you, the way mine did, and hopefully, always will!
