"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.

Indeed we do, it's making peace with that fact that's the hard part :-)

Oh my, that is sooooo true! I know it is in my nature to want heaven down here and to be in an ultimate safe and wonderful comfort zone now...But I have to remind myself that this longing in my soul is because my Heavenly Father has that prepared for me one day when I go to be with Him. I am thankful for the blessings He has given me here and continues to give me, but we can't imagine the completeness and beauty we are going to ultimately have with Him one day.

Hugs to you Mary~

Making peace with it...yes! And I am learning this keeps me going to God. If we were 100% satisfied here we would not need Him. This is not our home, how it was meant to be, it is a shadow, there is more! We know something is not quite right!
