Storing Up Treasures

I'm beginning to get the feeling of being followed. This past Saturday we received a sneak preview of spring. Having felt the itch to walk my neighborhood park for sometime now, I seized the opportunity to pay a visit. Normally I just walk the perimeter of it and take in some great people watching. On this particular afternoon I had the sudden impulse to take the path through the middle of the park along the shallow sculpture pond. Shining right in the middle of it was a beautiful red mosaic heart sculpture. Continuing on a moment later I noticed something I stepped on. A simple white chalk drawing of four shapes: a triangle, rectangle, circle, and a heart. As I took snapshots of both images, I was reminded of a personal favorite quote. It actually comes from the Bible, and reads:
"But store up for yourselves treasures in Heaven...For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also."--Matthew 6:20-21
So for now I'll go on collecting these symbols I've come to treasure, in hopes of finding my real heart.

Post Script: Some times the best way to remember our heart is to go back to childhood. Whose first piano masterpiece wasn't Heart and Soul?
