"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.


Meg's 19

Today is my precious daughter's 19th birthday.  

she is beautiful inside and out

she is creative

she is kind

she is funny

she can be shy

but that is changing

it is a joy to watch her stretch her wings.

Thank you Lord, for the gift that she is,  

may she grow in the knowledge that she is precious in your sight,

that you love her unconditionally and completely.

And may she discover and grow in the gifts and talents you have given her,

and use them to glorify you.

Happy Birthday my Meggie, I love you!
