Original Song – “Fruit Of Your Heart”

Fruit Of Your Heart is a dreamy, enchanting and mesmerizing little song that has a heavenly, otherworldly and mystical sort of feel to it. It’s the kind of song you could listen to with your eyes closed in the corner of a garden all by yourself while peacefully meditating.  The song equates our hearts to fertile soil, into which God plants a seed of love.  This seed of love then needs to root and grow while we water, nourish and nurture it. As the seed of love roots and grows in the fertile soil of our hearts, it gains strength to grow tall and flourish – bearing fruit that becomes the visible fruit of our hearts to others. Sadly, modern society isn’t always a nurturing place for love to flourish and grow, which requires us to create within us the nurturing environment and conditions where love can prosper and flourish until its fruit have matured – which are then to be given away as gifts of love to others.  “If you take the time, To let your love grow, You will find, Your love will flow from within, Love will flow from within…

I recorded my original song “Fruit Of Your Heart” as a demo on Set 15 in 1997, and it speaks to nurturing the seed of love God plants in our hearts, “Take the time to water your heart, And love will be the fruit of your heart, And grow from within your heart…” Enjoy! ♡ 🙂 Mark
