"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.

Hi Mary! I hope you had a wonderful holiday season with your family. It is so true that deep everlasting joy comes from the Lord. No matter where we find ourselves in this sometimes difficult life and also happy moments, the one true joy we can always count on comes from our Heavenly Father who never leaves us and fills those deep voids we cannot fill here on earth. This past year has been exceptionally harder for me...I won't go into details. I know the secret to getting through and on to victory is remembering where my everlasting joy comes from and knowing that HE has great things planned for my good. Having that promise and His constant presence is so precious to me.

Big Hugs to you my friend.
