"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.


guess who i got to meet?

boy was it cold when we left the house today to head out to the little red barn sale...34 degrees.

it did warm up to around 60, but it was quite windy and chilly for most of the day.

and guess who i got to meet?
