heart from

(no subject)

My card of today is inspired by a passage in John in which a man called Nathaniel wonders if something good can come from Nazareth, hearing that Jesus comes from Nazareth. “Nathanael said to him, “Can any good thing come out of Nazareth?” “Philip said to him, “Come and see.” Jesus saw Nathanael coming to him, and said about him, “Behold, an Israelite indeed, in whom is no deceit!”

My question of today is: What is a good thing Jesus sees in me? 

I’ve pulled the Lord of Teacups (King of Cups) from the Jane Austen Tarot. Depicted is Charles Bingley from Pride and Prejudice. Trying to stretch my heart out, when it is needed, which is hard. But I know it helps.

I have pulled a card with the question: What is so valuable in my life that it must never get lost in my life? The question is inspired by a saying of Jesus in Mark 2:22.

"No one puts new wine into old wineskins, or else the new wine will burst the skins, and the wine pours out, and the skins will be destroyed; but they put new wine into fresh wineskins.”

I’ve pulled Two of Teacups from the Tarot of Jane Austen. 


What must not get lost in my life is the joy of contact and connecting, heart to heart, with equal sharing and involvement.
