it starts in the heart...

As a man thinks in his heart, so he is.

Proverbs 26:11

Let's be careful what we think about...because our thoughts determine what we do!

It's a good thing to focus on those things that are pure, lovely and good...
and not spend too much time thinking about the unlovely.

Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life.

Proverbs 4:23

We make many choices in life...and they all affect the course our life takes.

It's the condition of our heart that determines what choices we make...
everything in life proceeds from our heart.

Guard it!


  1. Amen Judy. Can't really add to that at all. Have a super Sunday Judy. Enjoy and I suspect you will have an outing here or there with family...the weather is still so lovely....maybe not tomorrow....

  2. What a great thing to remember. Sometimes it is hard to only think loving thoughts, but it should be our goal.

  3. Thank you for such a nice devotion true..hope your having a nice Sunday evening...Dee Dee

  4. Thank you, Judy, I needed to hear that. It can be hard to get negative thought about someone out of your head. But when you make an effort to do so, it changes one's outlook for the day. Haven't we had such lovely warm weather this weekend! Dairymary

  5. Beautiful!

  6. Lovely post Aunt Judy! It always seems that posts like these are written at the right times - I had to let my boss know that things are not going well for me with work from him, and I kept this post in mind as I wrote out a sensitive email...I think things are looking up, but we'll see...

  7. Such a good word, Judy. Timely, too.

    Hope that you are enjoying a wonderful Victoria Day!
