"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.

Chilling on the couch!



I have been feeling pretty crappy these past couple of days.  My daughter was sick last week, and I think it moved on to me!!!!!  I have been watching way too much TV.  My headache makes reading too hard.  For some reason we have Showtime for free for several weeks. There are a lot of stupid movies on it!!!!!


So I started going through old journals getting ready for the visual journaling workshop at my church.  Oh, you have to see the flyer.  One of the ladies in my Saturday journaling workshop is a graphic artist!! What she did was amazing.  I will post it later.


I don't recall if I posted many of my old journal pages, so I thought I would throw one in every now and then. There's that image of the little girl with her arms thrown wide open again.  It's been interesting to see how often I used it.


Okay, just wanted you all to know why I was not stopping by much this week to say hello, or comment.


Please send up a little prayer for me, we move Meg into her dorm next week and I don't want to be sick her last week at home.


Blessings!!

This is an old journal page? I like it a lot! Hope you feel better soon, and good luck to your daughter, although I'm sure she'll have a blast! Kate

Wow.....what a powerful page.
You asked so much, braveheart!
Those are deliciously dangerous words
you hurled into the universe.
I would expect quite a wildly bumpy ride has followed.
Well done, you:)
I have a feeling you're gonna love the next chapter of your life. (Finishing one is always hard)
Praying for healing happening quickly.
