"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.



i am learning...

taking Alisa Burke's Art of Abstraction class.

only on week two and feel i have learned much.

i want to thank you all so very, very much for all your kind comments to me on my last post.
i am abundantly blessed by my little community here.

i am learning to live in the struggle.  i think that is what stretches and grows us most of the time.
and, to be okay with who i am in the midst of it.  knowing each day brings change and growth of some kind.

grace and peace

I, too, think we learn and grow in the challenges in life. But that also involves a decision to grow in our faith through our struggling. To keep our eyes off the problem and on the problem solver.
Missed you dear lady.
