The good treasure of the heart bringeth forth that which is good...for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh..Luke 6:45

A heart trod this earth
With feet calloused in sandals;
Faced deceit from dirt hurled,
And hurt by its scandals.

While preaching God's word~
He taught love to the world,
To be united before death,
Takes away the last breath.

This Heart unto earth
When bound here by birth,
Wished peace for the brethren
And for the wars to all end.

Jesus, our friend
Gave us His heart.
He was destined to part
From earth and its sin...
Poetry by me, AJP

These are the heart leaves I collected from off of our Dutchman's Pipe Vine. They were all on the ground...I was amazed how each one was different in color or size. I taped them on the door except for the one I am holding. Isn't it great to see the word "heart" found in the word "earth"? As you can see the sun is shining today but it is very windy outside and I am just glad all the hearts didn't get blown off the door:) The heart I am holding I found on doorstep...Apparently it had blown off the door as I see the tape on the outside edges. I picked it up and held it.. It sure is lit up brightly and it even cast a reflected light not only on my arm and hand but on my jeans.

    What a beautiful way to showcase the atumn leaves! Never thought o fit! Taping them to the door. We use to use the ever green branches at Christmas and stapled them around our front door. Beautiful the way the sun is sining thru the leaf!

    Love that backlighting! Glad you explained about the leaves in a row...I was thinking it was an odd arrangement of leaves on a tree!

    I love the lighting! It shines thru to show the beautiful color and detail of the leave. I never thought of earth and heart having the same letters. How perfect is that. A wonderful SP Andrea.
