~A Clean Heart~

I pray everyday for a clean heart.

It needs it!

Even when I try to do "good"...the Lord lets me know when the wrong motives have crept in.


It's not fun to be reminded of how diva-ish I can be...

in fact, it's downright humbling.

However, His Spirit keeps me close to saving grace.

Without His guidance and pure heart...I am just another gal trying to draw attention to myself in words and actions.

I want to be the kind of gal that draws attention to Him and His pure motives and ways.


I made this card for will replace the post-it note that's near my computer.

I got this lovely verse from

Word Art Wednesday #62:Hearts-

you can get it there, free!

Make a Window Challenge in the Moxie Fab World

 inspired me to give this card depth.

I merged different files together to create this tag on my Silhouette.

May our hearts be made clean and pure for the Lord's purposes!
