Draw my heart

Draw my heart, O Holy Spirit, draw my heart

Suppose the Holy Spirit did draw my heart – with a pencil and paper that is – what would it look like?  I have a suspicion that it would be something like the Grinch’s heart, several sizes too small.

This is a sketch of Fra Angelico's Holy Spirit in the form of a dove from the Tabernacle of the Linemen.  Want to give yourself a great gift?  Set aside some time and sit down with a book of Fra Angelico's paintings.  Don't read any text, just look and look and look.

Maybe the Holy Spirit can draw our hearts the way they are supposed to look, then draw them closer to be transformed.
