"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.

Lovely weekend







My family was gone for the weekend.  So I had a slumber party.  Four of my good friends came over Friday evening (a few were missing - we missed you).  Just a time to hang together, catch up and relax.  It has been so hot here the last few days, but it cooled off enough to light some candles and spend a few hours on the screened porch.  Friends are so good for the heart.  Here is one of my favorite quotes. 

A friend is someone who knows the song
in your heart and can sing it back
to you when you have
forgotten the words.

I completed these backgrounds in my collage journal.  I think I will write this quote on one of these pages.

You're doing a fine job with your new journal, Mary. These pages are very nice and are certainly a new direction for you. You're taking Kelly's class, aren't you? How's that going?

Oh my goodness, I bet you had a blast! There is nothing like special time spent with girlfriends. When I get together with mine, it seems like we solve all the problems of the world, at least for an evening and we don't have to worry about the "emotions thing" because we cover all of them from laughing, crying, anger, joy, craziness etc... Good for you Mary! I would have loved to been at your party!!!

You are on a roll here with your journal pages. Just love them.

Hugs,
Lee Ann

Sounds like you had fun with your girlfriends; we women really need our girlfriends...Wouldn't it be fun to collect some blog friends and have a weekend of women fun?....A thought....

We have had so much rain the last couple of days the creek is roaring down the mountain and I haven't been able to take shorts of plantings but we really needed the rain....

You are really on a roll with your journal pages...I love the bright colors..

Hugs and blessings
