"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.

winds of change

I feel the winds of change.....


Not quite sure what they are.....


While I was waiting for these photos to load my gaze fell upon a journal
I purchased from Roben Marie.  The cover says, "efforts and courage are
not enough without purpose and direction."

 

Purpose and direction matter.  Maybe that is what is changing.

Wow Mary! I would love writing on these pages in your journal, or on any of them for that matter. You always surprise me with what you show us next from your creative hands and spirit. When I look at these pages, it's like they are calling out and saying "write all of your hope, dreams, fears here, because what I have for you is like nothing you've imagined... " Oh how exciting for you Mary! God is up to something very special for you.

Oh my, your post is so deep and wonderful and my post today, well you may not want to go and read it because it is plain ditzy and not deep at all. I'm getting ready to leave tomorrow for PA to visit with my daughter and family and had to write a goodbye for now quick post.
