Circulation and exchange
The elements on this page reminded me of the circulatory system - blue for veins, red for arteries - so I added a heart as well. That set me thinking about the function of the circulatory system, which is circulation and exchange.
The same can be said of my morning quiet time. As I live through each day I pick up 'carbon dioxide' in the form of petty resentments, sharp words, unkindness, selfishness and the like, so I need to go back to the heart. If I let everything build up I suffocate in my own inadequacies and wretchedness. Spending time in God's word each day cleans me up so I'm fit to go out into the world again.
