"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.



This cupboard usually holds table linens.

This day it held something precious.  

It's good to have a little one around again.  They are instinctively creative, and they know how to play. 

He loves wearing these frog boots even when it is not raining.  

In a previous post, "Weaving of Lives" I spoke about my friend Katie.  She has joined the blogging community and what a blessing she is.  Please take a moment to stop by and welcome her.

Grace and Peace
