Your Heart's Desire!

I can't believe it is already time to start thinking Valentine's Day!  What words come to your mind when you think about the holiday?  Love, hearts, passion, desire?  Desire is the theme over at Path of Positivity this month!

I saw this darling image from Scribbles Designs and couldn't help but think of the expression, whatever your heart desires!  Now, what I didn't know about this expression is, it takes its roots from Psalm 37:4.  "Delight thyself also in the Lord; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart."  

From here I started thinking about how desire is one of the first stories from the bible.....Adam and Eve and the desire for knowledge of good and evil.

Now moving on in history, we are reminded of Saint Valentine for whom our February 14 holiday is named.  He had a desire to see couples married in the church.  

So, there you are ~ a little history on desire and Valentine's Day!  You just never know what we'll be sharing here at ScrappyHorses!  ; )

Our Challenge this month is to create a project following the theme Desire.  How are you inspired by that idea/word?  We can't wait to see what your thoughts are!  Be sure to visit Path of Positivity and see how the rest of the Design Team interprets this idea!  You will also want to check out the great prizes from our sponsors Scribbles DesignsIke's Art, Creative Bug Digital Snapshots and Deccosse's Dynamite Doodles.
