"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.

porch pictures and molly









i seem to not be able to take a clear picture these days...

i did not want to use a flash and it is early morning and overcast as well...and i have a stinkin headache again!!

we have been able to sit out on this marvelous porch quite often this winter...today it will be high 60's. i love sitting out there when it is raining.

news on our sweet molly came back yesterday.  the tumor in the tail was cancer, and they found cancer cells all the way to the margin.  hopefully, that is where it ends.  only time will tell.

i have been playing around in my calendar book...painting a few pages and doodling and journaling a bit differently...will show you later.

i hear the birds singing and no dogs barking so i am gonna go grab a cup of coffee my bible and journal and go sit on that porch.

grace, peace and love!

you have got to have the most inviting, wonderful porch on record. Just love this space, I'd be hard pressed to ever leave it! Hoping that Molly is in the clear appreciate the update.
Those weather changes have me down with a lot of migraines too. Hope you get past this one soon, feel for you.

What a fun place to be.

Looks like a really fun place to hang out. I'd be tempted to "live" there, not just "vacation" there. Hope you had a nice reading time. AND hope Molly moves forward in health.

Thank goodness Molly's cancer was contained in her tail....and I do pray she is going to be fine and have no problems with this issue....

Mar, you know it's not fair when you post pictures of your porch because you know I want to get in my car and drive immediately to your house and just hang out there with you....Oh I think of all we could do out there, chatter chatter, drink tea, read, take a nap, chatter some more, eat chocolate...well you get the picture....
Please warn me before you do this again...It's hard on me......hahaha

Love you girlfriend,
Nanie

Love, love your porch. It is a great continuation of the decor from the inside and is so inviting. Sounds like everyone is going to show up soon to hang out there. ;-)

Hope Molly is doing well.

I dream of having a porch as magical as yours.
I think I may just close my eyes and see myself napping on the daybed as the meditative dreams wash over me.

What a great porch! I'd be sleeping out there, too. I love all your colors. But what do I expect? You ARE an artist!
