I love sentiments and quotes that focus on profound words of wisdom, kindness, beauty, or love which reflect truths also found in the Bible. The one I'm using today is appropriate for Valentines Day or for a friendship card. It says, "The greatest treasures are those invisible to the eye but found by the heart." To me, that can also mean "man looks on the outward appearance, but God looks on the heart."
When I was 9 or 10 I chose to follow that idea and made friends with a sweet girl who had been brain-injured at an early age when a bullet came through their house. She didn't walk or talk like most everyone else but I could tell she needed a friend. She was kind and gentle. I played with her at the neighborhood playground and said hello to her in the hallway at school even though she was in a special class. I've tried to make that a life principal, which has led to rewarding friendships. I've seen my children follow that example through life as well.
I used a sketch from Freshly Made Sketches (even though mine isn't CAS so I didn't enter it there) and the color challenge from Watercooler Wednesday along with the CTMH Sweetheart papers and embellishments I'm trying to use up.
The background paper has floral hearts that have a few tiny purple flowers. I added some purple sparkles to increase the appeal.
The one with only two purple flowers has some extra purple hearts around the sentiment.
Thank you for visiting! May God bless you as you see the soul of others with the eyes of your heart!
