Delectable Words in a Pink Plastic Heart

Pink plastic hearts in the Target $1.00 bin were purchased with the intention of filling them with delectable candy for my three “Corners” (writer’s group). Or so I thought.

In a flash, I recalled the whiteboard in our Psalm 119 study. As a group, we’d listed on the board those things which we know to be true about the Word. I contributed “edible.” Strange, I know, but true according to Jeremiah 15:16:

When your words came, I ate them; they were my joy and my heart’s delight, for I bear your name, O LORD God Almighty.

I could choose to fill their stomachs for a moment—or feed their souls for an eternity.

Seven scripture verses on God’s love were chosen, typed, printed in red ink, cut, and carefully folded.

Each day for a week, a delectable verse will slip from their pink plastic hearts and be ushered directly to their heart, where it will shift into action to accomplish its mighty purpose in their lives.

How sweet are your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth!
Psalm 119:103
