"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.

Finished last night

Finished this one last night.  I like the simplicity of a single element in the center. 

I think with these kinds of journal pages I would like to begin to make them more personal, with items from the day to day stuff  of life and personal photos. 

I hope you have a lovely day.  It looks like we could get some rain!!!

Oh, see the left border??  It's tape.  I have purchased a few rolls of the wonderful, fabulous decorative tapes available.  I could go nuts with this stuff!!!

I hope they were upholsterd chairs; it's so hard to get the smell out......I am sorry this is going on...we will just have to unite in prayer that the meds will work or God will heal him......find us a Scripture and we will stand on it.....

I love the rhythm of the words....gives it a watery feel. Liberating! Now I want to go play with my pens and paints instead of sleep....must sleep. But soon......
