"Once we clearly acknowledge the soul, we can learn to hear it's cries. - Dallas Willard, Renovation Of The Heart."

It takes courage to pursue our dreams. It takes time and patience to unearth buried treasure. But I believe with all my heart that we must do both.

The burden of suffering seems to be a tombstone
hung around our necks. Yet in reality it is
simply the weight necessary to hold the
diver down while he
is searching for
pearls.

I just read that recently in Streams in the Desert, my favorite devotional. I wonder if that is where you got it from. Such true words.
