"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.

I am so proud of YOU Mar! God is just opening up your wings wider and wider. Soon you are going to be flying and soaring even to more new lands that God has planned for you and your gifts all along! (home art journal classes, teaching art journal class at church, online artist interviews, now teaching at a weekend retreat!!!!! WOW!and I bet there is more that you haven't even told us yet) YOU are an inspiration to me.

Being with you and Nancy would have been wonderful. One day we will all have to plan to meet up at this wonderful spot.

I've missed you and glad your back!
Big Hugs ♥
