(part of this research was taken from the NLT Study Bible - 2nd edition; the scriptures were some that spoke to my heart and I felt went along with the examples; the last little "sign" is a verse I read  earlier this morning and then it popped up in my images as a reminder to keep this one close to my "heart" as I pray about a certain situation)

  3. I LOVE these thoughts today about The Heart! I like also what Mary H. said above..."Create in me a clean heart, O God." I think of that verse often. Only God can cleanse the heart and make it new again...so thankful that He is willing and able to do this!! Wonderful post today. Thank you.
