What's in your locket?

Megan stood in front of the mirror, Sunday best on, rare clip in hair, lip gloss shining. I finger combed her mussed-up-by-sleeping but freshly-washed-last-night curls and she held the ends of a necklace up for me to clasp.

"I need to put a picture in this locket. A locket isn't a locket without something in it."

Oh, my heart, child.

Yes, truer words were never spoken.

For what is a heart without anything in it?
What comes of an empty heart?
or one filled with all the wrong things?

Where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. 
Luke 12:34

Do not set your heart on what you will eat or drink; do not worry about it. 
Luke 12:29

He purified their hearts by faith. 
Acts 15:9

And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love 
into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us. 
Romans 5:5

He set his seal of ownership on us, and put his Spirit in our hearts as a deposit, 
guaranteeing what is to come. 
2 Corinthian 1:22

What's in your heart, 
your locket?
