"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.

Mary, you are such an inspiration! I love your work and your thoughts. I sent your abiding update from Monday to my small group who is focusing on weight loss and they loved you too! LOVE

what brand white pen did you use to journal?? Mine don't look as white when I use them.

Sharon said...

I know exactly how that lady feels and remember the day I too discovered the undreamed dream come true.

Just Be Real said...

How wonderful that that women was inspired. Blessings to you dear Mary.

Fun pages, & according to design, three's or odd numbers are appealing to the eye, don't you love it when instinctively you're following a design pattern & don't know it! I think we can all echo the ladies words, a dream we didn't know to dream :-)

Mary,
I got your message on my blog. Thank you so much for asking about me. I have been very quiet lately. Fighting some depression and struggling with the constant balancing between what I HAVE to do (children, house, shopping, cooking, cleaning)and what I WANT to do (ART!!) has made me very tired. I need a break...one that I won't get until the fall when Jack starts pre-k. I've been a stay home mom without a gap (always with someone home) for nearly 10 years. Gotta start taking care of me, you know? I'm so ready for some me time. :) I'm doing the "remains of the day" journal project but as with any of my online endeavors, it's a slow process. I noticed your blog link on her (Mary Ann Moss) site. Did you take a class from her? Anyway, you're just so sweet to ask about me. It's such a great comfort to know my online people are FRIENDS!! Thank you again!
Big hug -
Megan
