Guest Heart Thursday #74

Welcome to Guest Heart Thursday -
A place to share YOUR heart!

With just a few strokes of color on paper, Boki stole my heart with this beautiful drawing she has called "Love Confusion". This is not the first time Boki's drawings and photography have touched me - to see more, visit her over at "ninas y corazones" - you will be delighted!

Thank you, Boki, for touching my heart ... and for sharing yours!

I had to giggle when Cheryl posted this "rose heart in training" on her blog "March to March". It is a photo well named!

Cheryl has been a wonderful friend and inspiration to me. She has been here since I started blogging, and has helped me through good times and bad. I can't say how much I appreciate her!!!

Thank you, Cheryl, for being there, for inspiring me ... and for sharing your heart!

One of my favorite things to do is to find hearts in the posts of my friends ... hearts they don't see! When JM over at "Oeiras Daily Photo" posted this photo "Vertigo", I couldn't help but look for the hearts I knew I would find in this amazing shot ... Do you see any hearts here?
(hint: look just above the word "and" in the copyright watermark!)

If you haven't discovered JM's blog, you are missing out on some of the best photography I've seen in a long time. Every time JM posts, I am stunned at the beauty he finds ... and his unique point of view in which he shares it!!!

Thank you, JM, for sharing your beautiful Portugal ... and for sharing your heart!

When I got the e-mail from my friend Louis, I knew I would find a special heart attached. When I saw this astounding shot, I knew Louis had found a heart in a million!

So ... my imagination has added something new to Louis' paradise in "backwoods Southern California" ... I will now add the sound of a low note wind chime to the picture in my head of Louis kicking back on the deck, surrounded by the beauty of nature ... listening to the low beauty of the chimes ... Sigh ...

Thank you, Louis, for this beautiful vision ... and for sharing your heart!

Laura has posted this beautiful tree heart before ... and I have loved it each time I see it.
I hope someday you will meet Laura. She in every way inspires me, shames me, makes me look beyond myself, bring me to tears ... I am in awe of someone who can take their own pain ... face their own demons ... and still shine with faith and grace. That is Laura.

"Shine the Divine: Creativity IS a Spiritual Practice"

"It makes me wonder how much my slender body can hold, how big will my heart grow through the years, am I up to the tasks that life has in store for me, and will I be able to withstand the storms of living with a fraction of the grace this tree embodies? It is an awe inspiring mystery, discovering a tree that grew perfectly into a heart."

Thank you, Laura, for sharing your heart. Your whole heart.

One world. One people. One heart.

As always - a huge thank you to all who participated in Guest Heart Thursday last week. I loved seeing all of the delightful and amazing hearts you found in your world!

Would you like to share your heart on Guest Heart Thursday?
The rules are easy ...

There are none!!!
As long as your post includes a heart!

If you have found a heart (or drawn a heart, or designed a heart, or ...), please join us for Guest Heart Thursday. Just link the URL of your heart post to Linky! It would be nice if you linked back to Random Hearts ... but it's okay not to ... we just want to see your hearts!
The link will be open from Thursday morning until Sunday night.

Have you found more than one heart?
Put in more than one link!
Is your heart from a long time ago?
It doesn't matter, as long as you put the direct URL link to that post!

Hi Clytie,

I have had a long break from blogging this summer, and I'm so happy to see that Guest Heart Thursday is still up and going! I have collected a couple of hundred hearts, and I look forward to show them this winter :-)

As always the hearts you are featuring are amazing. I especially like Louis's rustic one, and of course Laura's...

(I have added 2 links this week, and in the second, the heart is in the third picture down.)
Hugs :-)

Very beautiful hearts again, Clytie.
I just arrived back in China. Will join you soon. I found many hearts on my way here.


Trisha said...

I just love Thursdays!! Off to check out everyones finds :)

Yes, you surely find more hearts, in more places. We may see other body parts (like... kidneys), but you always spot the hearts.
Now, go see these hearts on Facebook:

Hello, my darling Sissy! I had so much fun putting up all my hearts this morning--hope you don't mind, they're a day late. I'm out of town for the weekend--I will MISS YOU SO MUCH! ((hugs))

Love you, SissyBoo.

Thank you, Clytie, for re-posting my rose bush; that was quite the surprise! As always, these heart posts provide wonderful, peace filled moments. I truly appreciate the work you do for our benefit! ♥
