Everyday we are tied together with heartstrings, some we don’t even realize.

Heartstrings — it’s one’s deepest feelings normally attached to a relationship.

February is a special month to remember these heartstrings — to reflect, to appreciate, and most of all, to connect and re-connect.

First there is the Chinese New Year celebration with family reunion; and then there is Family Day, a provincial statutory holiday during this weekend.

Family Day allows us to celebrate heartstrings — whether it is our immediate family or our family in Christ.

What follow next is Valentine’s Day — the day to celebrate romantic relationships or treasured friendships; once again, tugging on our heartstrings.

Looking deeper into all our heartstrings, the centre and the reason of it all is Jesus Christ.

This “Valentine” bookmark reminds and solidifies our love with Jesus.

Because of Jesus, we are saved.

Because of Jesus we can have a heartstrings with God.

Roll over the pattern, paint, draw, calligraph, wrap with wrapping paper… to create an enchanting design.

Insert a crumpled and twisted aluminium foil in the tube and tape both ends of foil in the tube to prevent it from loosen.
(I highly recommend using stainless steel wire — it’s a safe-way, save-on money, with soothing and satisfying sound effect as the beanies cascading through the coiled wire.)

Add one or two handfuls of rice/kernels/beans into the decorated tube and seal the cap tightly with white glue.

Have fun tilting and shaking the rain-stick and listening to the rhythm of the rain-maker!
