Hearts in My Path

Heartprints

Everywhere

Left by those who care

Mean more than fingerprints or

Footprints

( I was surprised to see another heart shape in my path today as I walked thru the parking lot at my local grocery store. This one was just a dry patch in the wet blacktop, not sure how it came to be there but it caught my eye. The last heart shape I saw a couple weeks ago in the parking lot was created from gum or candy I think. Just amazing that I keep seeing these heart shapes in my path. Looks like someone is leaving heartprints! 😊 )

Reminds me of the beautiful poem I posted below by an Unknown Author . It’s titled “Heartprints”


Heartprints

Whatever our hands touch – we leave fingerprints!

On walls, on furniture, doorknobs, dishes, books – there’s no escape!

As we touch we leave our identity.

Oh God, wherever I go today, help me leave heartprints!

Heartprints of compassion, of understanding and love,

Heartprints of kindness and genuine concern.

May my heart touch a lovely neighbor, or a runaway daughter

or an anxious mother, or perhaps even a friend.

Lord, send me out today to leave heartprints.

And if someone should say “I felt your touch”,

May that one sense YOUR LOVE

Touching them through ME!

Dont worry or hurry

Trust God to care for you

Like the birds do

“Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?” –Jesus. Matthew 6:26

Amazing Love

“Love you.”

I say to Him,

My creator in heaven.

“Love you more” is His reply to me,

“Always.”

Cinquain

“This is real love—not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins.” 1John 4:10 NLT
