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

Chapter 11, Page 19, Book 11



It isn't what you have in your pocket that makes you thankful, but what you have in your heart

The Size of Your Heart


It isn't the size of your house
That matters much at all.
It's a gentle hand and its loving touch,
That makes you great or small.

The friends who come to visit,
When out of your house they depart,
Will judge it not by the style you show,
But rather by the size of your heart.

It isn't how smart you are,
Or the wealth you've found.
Happiness comes from how you touch
The lives that are all around.

Making money is not hard,
But living life well is an art.
How people love and regard you,
Is all in the size of your heart.

I liked that size of your heart poem; makes one want to think where their priorities are and to work on their heart if anything needs fixing.
