Salt: where your heart is

My word - how quickly the weeks go by. Today saw the launch of this fortnight's challenge on Salt and this is what Gillian said:

Happy New Year!
May 2008 be a year of Blessings and Growth in the Lord for you.

Hi everyone, Gillian here, and it's my turn to set the challenge for the next two weeks.
You know setting these challenges is quite a soul searching exercise.
When I chose this theme the time of year came to mind
The Start of a New Year
and so many of us make New Years Resolutions
we look at the New Year as a sign of Change & a time to Grow.
In order to Change & Grow
We must Examine
So this weeks Challenge is perhaps a verse
that may help you to examine
Please take Inspiration from the
Gospel of Matthew
Chapter 6, Verse 21
For where your Treasure is,
there your Heart will also be.
to help your creative juices along, our DT have created some amazing pieces
We'd love for you to join in with this weeks challenge
Once you've completed your piece, leave us a comment at the bottom of this post
and we'll come and view your Creations.

Please take a look at Salt

I confess that I'm a bit late in contributing to this one (sometimes life's circumstances just get in the way!), but here it is now.

I took the theme from the Psalms (particularly Psalm 19 and 119) that God's word is precious, like gold, like diamonds - a real treasure for us. The Psalmist said: 'Your word have I hid in my heart'.

I cut the template for the hanging heart container on my craft robo and then cut out lots of hearts to go inside, each with a scripture promise on it. There's room for me to make more as and when a particular scripture prompts me.
