"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.


journal cover

 i liked the painting i did a few weeks ago so much i painted it on the front cover

back cover

i painted another journal cover.  you can really see the texture come through on the cover in these photos.

my dentist appointment went better than expected.  i had a root canal last may.  i really needed to go back and have a crown put on it but did not.  the tooth cracked, so now i really do need one.  the tooth had been sore...seems like it takes a bit of pain to get me moving...so, while i was there i asked what would it cost to remove all the old metal fillings (you know you should have them replaced) i don't have many, but i have several.  so, i will be back in the dentist chair in a few weeks.  

greg and i are heading to the mountains later today for a long weekend.  looks like it will be perfect weather.  

may you all have a wonderful weekend, and remember to do something you love.

grace and peace

Have fun in the mountains!

Oh how I love these beautiful colors you've chosen to create your beautiful journal cover.

I hope that crown went okay. I have plenty of metal fillings. Need to look up what problems they may cause.

Love ya Mary,
