"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 left this morning to go back to school.  

We had a week of relaxing, sight seeing, and some hard things thrown in. 

Wednesday, my son, daughter-in-law and grandson were in a car accident. Thankfully, they walked away though the car may be totaled.  Seth took Brooke, who is 7 months pregnant to the emergency room as a precaution. On the way there she began to have contractions. After an overnight stay they were able to get them to stop, but the waiting was scary. We are thankful.

Friday we took Meg to the High Museum of Art. It was so much fun to walk around and look at all the wonderful art. Can you guess when I got excited???  I loved seeing it all, but when I got a glimpse of the contemporary art around the corner my heart and yes, feet did a little dance. Funny how one can be so drawn to color and texture. 

 We then went to Atlantic Station and had lunch. A beautiful day in Georgia to enjoy lunch outside.  

I even had time this week to work on the above painting.  It, as many of my paintings started out far different, and has many layers underneath. It ended up being very similar to another of mine. It has been overcast all day and I had a very difficult time getting a good photo.

I have a busy and interesting week coming up.  NBC will be here for part of it...

want to know why???  

They are filming part of an NBC family movie here.  I'll tell more later...

I also have another journaling workshop next weekend, so if you all will say a little prayer that I stay focused and organized I would surely appreciate it my friends.
