"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.

Family

We have been purchasing our tree from the same place for many, many years. It has been awhile since my to older sons came along, and as wonderful that was, we also had the added blessing of having our newest daughter and grandson present. For your benefit I will not post the picture of me on the tractor. It's smaller than I remember it, and higher off the ground!!!! lol




Advent reading for Tuesday (see Monday's post for more information)

I like this Mary...it is like having my own little Advent Bible study group...Beautiful family...a great tradition...the getting of the tree. I was out tromping around the woods yesterday gathering boughs and "shopping" for our tree. It is one of my favorite things to do this time of year. Of course they look more like a Charlie Brown tree but I love them anyway.
