"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.

beautiful





Such beauty in a single flower!

Greg and I came home Friday night and found this beautiful plant on our back steps. No card, no note. Saturday morning Brian (my oldest son) called and asked if we saw the plant he left for us. So sweet! He is planting it for us as I type this. An added treat!!

It's a Passion Flower - and it has the most glorious fragrance.

Blessings!

I have always loved Passion Flowers. My favorite. My father used to grow them in our yard. They are so beautifully designed by God. Thank you for sharing!

Wow! What an amazing flower. It almost looks like it was handmade by an artist. Oops, it was handmade by the Creator himself who is the ultimate artist!

What a very thoughtful son to bring this to you and then to plant it too. I can see that he knows what his momma likes, since she is lives life through her art with passion.

Look at that color. God doesn't do anything half-way, does He?
Tell your son we think he's awesome.
