But somedays it is just too easy to drop our guard and misplace our direction!

Oh Paul, just because you had a thorn in your side, did you also have to stick one in mine?
Our hearts are of the utmost importance to God. Depending on which version you look at, the bible mentions the word “heart” from 600-900 times. It is crucial to be aware of what we put in ours.
So, it drives me to ask, where is my treasure, and what does it say about me?
Seek your true treasure today. If it is not something you really treasure, don’t allow it in. ††† en theos ††† jim work
“Above all else, guard your heart,
for everything you do flows from it” Proverbs 4:23
I have found that I truly find my heart in photography when I am making images of: flowers, insects, birds, wildlife, nature and kids. It made me stop and search for what is common in all these things ? My answer came to me in morning prayers, that all of these are quick to show their true heart. It is never hidden.
For our date night last night we watched the movie “Snow Falling on Cedars” the film adaption of David Guterson’s 1994 novel about a man finding his heart and expressing true love. A constant theme and search for me. Guterson was a high school literature teacher who wrote this revealing story in his early morning hours before going to teach. It took him 10 years to complete. What a testament to the plot of his heart.
There is a line spoken by an older defense lawyer ( played very convincingly by Max von Sydow) where he says: “Accident rules every corner of the universe except the chambers of the heart.”. That line so resonated with me, that it is so true that the heart, your true heart, does nothing by accident. “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. Matthew 6:21.
So, where is your treasure on your journey?†††nade te turbe†††jim
