"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 looks so refreshing! Thank you for sharing. Sometimes I forget to enjoy my own home as much as a coffee shop sometimes. ;)
