“For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.”
– Matthew 6:21
Where is your treasure? What is your treasure? I have many, many treasures. The first that come to mind are the most loved people in my life; those that make life worth living, worth waking up in the morning, worth smiling, worth struggling — those are the ones that I love more than the air that I breathe. Hallie and Mama. My two best friends in the world. I can go anywhere in the world and I’m home as long as they are both with me. They make me want to be a better person. And they make me feel loved every day of my life.
And then, there’s Jennefer, another best friend. It’s so nice to have a friend that knows me and likes me anyway. We understand each other because we have many of the same things and life experiences in common. We are both Christians and believe in strong family morals. There’s nothing I can’t tell her. I don’t think I’ve ever had a friend quite like her. She’s the kind that hears you, gets you and doesn’t judge you on what you say. And we are uplifting and encouraging and supportive with everything that the other does.
More treasures would be our furbabies! Life is not complete without furballs around us! We love our Buddy, Lilly and Tiger!
And tea! Oh my goodness, I love me some hot tea and honey. Right now, my favorite is this mixture I found at Teavana when we were (I think it was going through Knoxville, TN) on vacation. It’s a mixture of Pineapple Kona Pop and Blueberry Bliss. I call it Blueberry Pineapple Pop. It’s heaven in a cup! The fragrance alone is worth spending 5 minutes breathing in its deliciousness. If you love tea, I highly recommend.
And creative writing! That is something I pray I can live off of one day and that alone. Right now, I have writing contracts but it isn’t the kind of writing assignments I dream of. Plus, I have other contracts which I truly enjoy and my clients are awesome and amazing people. However, writing books is where my heart lives.
Oh, and reading. I love to read. Especially J. R. R. Tolkien, C. S. Lewis, H. G. Wells, J. K. Rowling as well as many others, but I do love fantasy/sci-fi/adventure the most and that’s also what I love to write.
I have so many treasures in my life. These are just a few that are at the peak of my huge mountain of blessings, treasures and loves.
What are some of your best treasures? Where does your heart reside?
