"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.

Mountain Weekend

My husband Greg and I spent a lovely weekend in the mountains of North Carolina. We stayed at Snowbird Mountain Lodge, a lovely lodge we have been visiting for many years. Though the peak leaf season had passed, it was still beautiful. The weather was perfect. I love this time of year, something about the colors and the smells just seem to speak to me. Warm sweatshirts, sweaters, fleece, spiced cider, hot chocolate, crisp breezes, soups, stews, good books in front of the fireplace, holidays approaching, and family gatherings.
