Conversation Hearts {free printables}

The Heart of A Child

{Author Unknown}

Whatever you write on the heart of a child

No water can wash away.

The sand may be shifted when billows are wild,

And the efforts of time may decay.

Some stories may perish,

Some songs be forgot;

But this graven record—

Time changes it not.

Whatever you write on the heart of a child,

A story of gladness or care

That Heaven has blessed or earth has defiled,

Will linger unchangeably there.

Hearts are prominent symbols we use in February to give attention to the topics of love, friendship, family and friends. What are we writing on the hearts of our children? It’s a good time to take note of our conversations and the conditions of our hearts.  It’s a good time to encourage those we love. It’s a good time to invest in marriage. It’s a good time to write a heart note to our children. One of my little guys had the idea to hang hearts around the room and write on them “I wuv my whole family.” So, that’s the plan – to make our own conversation hearts! Below are some simple hearts that I share with you. {18 pdf download links} They can be cut and hung as garland, traced, colored or could be used for some heart notes. I hope you enjoy! ♥ Jeri Lynn

Dear Lady, Look Up!

Hebrews 12.1-3

“Look Up”

 

How can I do it? I have too much to do,
I’m overwhelmed and feeling real blue,
I’m stuck in this house like super glue.
Don’t look around –
LOOK UP!

The dishes and laundry are piled up high,
When I look ‘round the house I have to sigh,
And for supper my husband’s expecting a pie!
Don’t look around – LOOK UP!

We can’t pay the mortgage; bills are overdue,
I’m tired and have headaches, not a few,
These children are driving me crazy too!
Don’t look around – LOOK UP!

My husband comes home late; he doesn’t care,
He doesn’t help with the children; it’s not fair!
I don’t want to smile; I just want to glare!
Don’t look around – LOOK UP!

Take your eyes off your problems, look up to Him,
God’s presence is with you, even in the din!
Confess your bad mood and He’ll cleanse your sin.
He is your God – LOOK UP!

He will show you how to order your place,
He will give you direction as you seek His face,
He wants to pour upon you His anointing of grace.
He is your God – LOOK UP!

Keep your eyes fixed on Him; He is your Stay,
He is your Wisdom for problems each day,
He will bring His presence right into your fray.
He is your God – LOOK UP!

Each morning He comes as the refreshing Dew
To revive your body, and your spirit too,
He is your Deliverer and He’ll make you new,
He is your God – LOOK UP!       ~ By Nancy Campbell (Above Rubies)

“Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God. For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds. “ –Hebrews 12:1-3

“Satan will go to any lengths to keep you from considering the Lord. If he can put you to riding the hobby of a favorite doctrine; if he can get you to look back at yesterday’s failures, or ahead to tomorrow’s dreads, or around at the array of circumstances or within at your own weakness and poverty—anywhere but looking unto Jesus—then he is satisfied.”     – Vance Havner

Problems and frustrations are inevitable.

Without Jesus, a peaceful life is impossible.

With our eyes turned upward, our faith will be immovable.

Looking unto Jesus,
