Curious George and the Treasures of our Hearts

“For our words will always express what has been treasured in our hearts.”

Luke 6:45 (Phillips translation)

Curious George has long been one of my son’s greatest treasures. Although this picture was taken on his 3rd birthday (almost three years ago- how does that happen?), Georgie is still as precious to him.

You don’t have to be around him long to know that. Conversation will wind around to include George. He has been a focus in my son’s heart for so long, that he naturally overflows into his spoken words.

Father, help me to notice my words, the overflow of my heart. Through them reveal my treasures that are not ‘true and noble and right and pure and lovely’.

May I rid myself of those. May I fill my room of treasures with all that is ‘admirable, excellent and praiseworthy’. And as I live into that room, may it spill into the words I speak and the words I type.

Oh, to be still in that room of treasures. With you.

To soak in that You are the treasure of greatest worth.

amen.

    What a perfect analogy. And a precious photo, too.

  7. Little children can teach us so much perhaps that is why Jesus said ‘let the children come to me.’

  8. This is the sweetest, purest prayer, Melanie. This week we celebrate both of my sons’ birthdays–both teens now. One of our traditions is to go through the baby book and watch the baby movies. It is such a precious gift to revisit their baby ways–to be reminded what childlike faith and trust truly looks like.

  9. It’s amazing how what comes out of our mouths say so much about us. A beautiful prayer.

    Blessings and love,
    Debbie

  11. Dear Melanie
    Like always you words run deep. Thank you, and I hope that all our words and thoughts will always honor Him.
    Much love

  12. Does Samuel have a new George doll? I didn’t know it was replaced after the island fair last summer. My neice gave me a bunny that I carried with me for three weeks but I learned why I never kept a cherished doll growing up. I couldn’t keep track of this poor bunny at all. I never lost it I just left it places… It was a good lesson/experiment for me.

    Although thinking about it, my laptop now fits into the cherished doll category… I do carry it everywhere.
