The Heart Stitch Mug Rug is part of the Proverbs Series of crochet patterns.
The Proverbs Series was inspired when my friend gave me a coffee mug, with a reference to my life verse on it. Proverbs 3: 5 & 6. Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. 6. In all they ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
