Photography 52 - 9



Holy Land Heart - Last Sunday at Church a friend came up to us and handed us this little wood carved heart. She had spent some time in Israel the year before and picked up this heart there made from olive wood.  She wanted us to have it to remind us that when life is stormy and difficult (much like all those grain lines in the wood you see, or when life is calm (the reverse side is almost the opposite, hardly any grain lines) - that we would know that God loves us, that never changes.  I was really touched by her words and kindness, and I love this heart.  A good reminder for me too, we've seen our fair share of storms, particularly in the last 6 weeks, and I need those constant reminders of His love, His compassion, His truth.  

"Because of the LORD'S great love we are not consumed, for His compassions never fail.  They are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness.  I say to myself, "the LORD is my portion; therefore I will wait for Him."  Lamentations 3:22 - 24
