Salt - There your heart will also be.

It was my turn to set the challenge for the next two weeks at
When I chose this theme the time of year came to mind
The Start of a New Yearand so many of us make New Years Resolutions
we look at the New Year as a sign of Change & a time to Grow.
In order to Change & Grow
We must Examine
So this weeks Challenge is perhaps a verse
that may help you to examine
Matthew 6:21
For where your Treasure is,there your Heart will also be.

Well this week I mentioned to a friend,

I've never done a canvas piece,

So decided that was what my Salt contribution would be

I loved it, and plan on making some more

This really is one of my all time favourite verses,

it's one you can't ignore

It's speaks Volumes in just a couple of lines

I've married this verse with this paper,

simply because the way the 'vine' pattern on it,

reminds me that Jesus is the vine (John 15:5)

so one glance at this piece my heart is full of praise

not only do I see the written text

asking where my heart is,

I also see the symbolic reminder of Jesus.
