"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.

little boxes...


i hold a monthly visual journaling workshop at my home church

beautiful boxes were painted to hold

dreams     desires     hopes     wishes      prayers     intentions  

for the new year...to be folded, sealed and kept till the year's days have been lived

then at one's choosing, unfolded to see what unfolded

you could do this too

choose a small box...paint till your heart is full...spill thoughts on little bits of paper...close tight...open at the end of the year....


these beauties from women at workshop...to be filled and folded this week
