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!

Family Peace

Rocks with hieroglyphic type wet imprints on them

Wet Footprints

Two hieroglyphics

Imprinted

Two symbols

Upon two rocks temporily

Ponder the meaning

Today my grand-son and I were outside in my yard taking some pictures of him before he left on a trip to do a show in Seattle. He is a music artist who performs hip hop. The grass was wet as it had rained earlier. As we walked back to go inside we had to step on some river rock I have near my patio. I happened to look down and saw that our shoes had left some strange looking imprints on various rocks. Two rocks in particular I noticed as looking like having hieroglyphic symbols on them, so I snapped a couple pics. Upon doing an internet search on hieroglyphic images I came to see a somewhat similarity to the symbols for Peace and Family, in some images of the Chinese alphabet, and family peace is something that I recently have been praying for. Is it too far fetched to think these wet shoe markings could be telling me we are taking steps towards Family Peace? I am not one who believes in co-incidences and I see meaning in many unordinary things. So I am led to believe perhaps God sent this as a sign to us.

Painting created by me from actual photo of squirrel’s hind footprint. Squirrel visited my patio in the night and left his tracks in the snow. I took a picture of the tracks to look up what they were. Then I also happened to see “Squirrel Footprint Art” on Pinterest which inspired me to create this painting.😊
