I started playing around with some heart designs the other day, intending on making them into a balanced, pretty template.
I traced a couple using a heart-shaped cookie cutter and did some freehand. I probably don't need to tell you how difficult it is to draw a heart consistently and symmetrically, do I?
Sometimes we just need to embrace imperfection and not get hung up on having something "just right."
I copied sets of these imperfect hearts on some different backgrounds to add a little texture and color. Then I printed some on colored card stock to see how that looked.
Some of these I cut into 3.5" squares for a set of flip cards and others I cut into heart shapes to use individually or grouped on a #biblequiltjournal page.
I'm sharing these with you so you can play around with them, too. You can use them to write in verses on love, using the #28daysoflove or #29daysofheart reference lists.
They can be cut into heart shapes or square/rectangle. I didn't fuss over the alignment of them on the page, so there will be imperfections that way, too.
I think we need the reminder that we're imperfect creatures with imperfect hearts, yet God loves us anyway...just as we are.

Embrace imperfection in these imperfect, wonky days of pandemic living. Rejoice that God's plan for us is bigger than everything else going on.
"And so we know and rely on the love God has for us.
God IS love.
Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them."
