Hearts 2013 0134

It is that time of year again. After a new member of our church brought her "hearts" to our congregation a few years ago, it has become a tradition for the women (and men) of the church to make hundreds of hearts each year. These hearts then appear through out our extended community at various people's homes and the town gazebo, etc. And each year several women who give generously of their time to the the community are "honored" with some hearts. Yesterday I helped deliver the hearts to these women and took several pictures (hopefully to get one in the paper). Usually the hearts are put in a tree or on a porch railing, but when we spied this hay rake in the yard we knew where the hearts belonged. The woman lives on a hill in a log cabin and it seemed so "vermonty". Nikkor [email protected], f20, 1/60 sec.

I love, love, love it. I love the tradition, love the hearts, the hay rake, the log cabin, the snow, the old time past feel, the love of the people who make the hearts and those who go and place them. I really love the person behind the camera.

Beautiful beyond measure. Our sermon yesterday was Corinthians. It is a reminder that, "Faith, hope, and love abide, these three; and the greatest of these is love."

Love. Faith. Hope. There is a reason love is first. Maybe it is because faith and hope are something we receive from Grace. Love is something we give. It's a paying forward of Grace.

What do you think?

I love this tradition, and after you sent a picture of them last year, I have thought about making some to give to my "in a need of a heart" friends. Beautiful heart warming tradition!
