What shall we give Him, our hearts?

Marilyn has written beautifully over at Enjoy the Journey, sharing her own thoughts and those of Sally Clarkson, on the importance of our hearts being properly prepared in Advent for the Christ Child. Is our heart, truly loving?...or forgiving? In otherwords prepared for Christmas?

Please pop over and visit her post, If I Speak with Tongues of Angels.

I just loved the image above. While I know the Christ Child resting in His Blessed Mother's arms IS holding a pomegranate, don't you think it could be an image of our hearts that we give Him?

Here is the full image the first image was taken from, The Christ Child, from Sandro Botticelli's Madonna of the Pomegranate. HT Click on the little image and it will enlarge to a lovely, clear size.
