"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.

feels like ages



it feels like i have not posted in ages...while it's only been a week or so

it seems like life has just crowded in on me, things and events coming from all directions

i have been working on lessons, and journal prompts for my upcoming workshops

prompts that will take women deeper into their hearts

prompts that are meant to open eyes and hearts, and awaken desires long forgotten

i wonder...there are forces set against that happening...

my sweet doggie i told you all about a few posts back may have cancer.  what they thought was a hematoma they now think is a tumor - we will know next week

there have been major health issues in extended family members and friends

and i have a crappy cold!!

please pray that i will be well on Saturday.  that the workshop and prompts help open closed places in women's hearts.

grace and peace

I am sending buckets of bliss and well-wishes your way.... We have a fur-baby with breast cancer (it never occured to me that this was even possible) so I know how it can wear on your heart; I offer lots of strength and healing for you and your pup!! Stay strong and in faith! xo

Praying right now...that you will see the hand of God's healing and be up and bouncing for your workshop...where you are weak He is strong, so in His might you will teach your class.

I am praying you feel better for the workshop. I just got over a summer cold, so I know you need to be feeling better to do what God has for you. Also, thank you for the kind comment you wrote on my blog. You made my day!

Martha Lever said...

Hi Mar! This is a fabulous journal page. I just love the yummy colors and especially what it says. I will be praying for you to feel better, for you doggie and for the journaling class. I am quite sure that is some "resistance" having people move forward in their spiritual lives by facing some hard spots in their hidden life. Let us know how it all turns out.♥ That was a cute pic of us wasn't it?!

Bevie said...

Was the journaling class this past Sat? I'm so sorry I didn't get online till today...So they think Mollie has cancer of her tail??? Makes me so sad. sister I know there are forces in this world that would love nothing better to keep you from sharing your heart with those taking your journaling classes, but your faith is so strong and you have so many holding you up in prayer...God is using you and will protect you thru it all...feel better sweetie, and know I pray for you and the family all the time...Will share our weekend with you tomorrow on my blog...love you sis.
