It takes hands to build a house, but only hearts can build a home.

Chapter 2, Page 28, Book 13
For where your treasure is, there also will your heart be.
What ever we claim as treasure in our life is where we put the bulk of our time and energy. We let go of some things in order to have the time and energy to spend on what is important to us. The choices we make each day are based upon what we treasure.
The treasure doesn't follow our heart; but rather, our heart follows our treasure, whether it be a career, a family, or a large accumulation of wealth in the bank.
The things we treasure most over the years are often the small simple things. What matters most is often the attitude of our heart. The little things we do for others and that they do for us. The kindness and cheerfulness shared day after day.
To me, there is nothing sadder than a person, or a married couple, or some group of people, who think that a pile of money in the bank is a great accomplishment in life.
But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. Matthew 6:20
