After journaling for many years (with real paper and pen) and then not journaling for many years because of, well…life, I decided I needed my own pretty place on the web to chronicle what hope looks like in my own journey toward heaven.
My husband and I live in beautiful southeast Arizona with our two canine kiddos, Sophie and Gracie.
We have two grown children and two BEYOND adorable granddaughters!
Creativity, as reflected in the Creator, is one of my passions, and oozes out through writing, quilting, crocheting, cooking, home decorating, music…I love it all! But, these things are not the “thing itself.”
“The books or the music in which we thought the beauty was located will betray us if we trust in them; it was not in them, it only came through them, and what came through was a longing…For they are not the thing itself; they are only the scent of a flower we have not found, the echo of a tune we have not heard, news from a country we have never yet visited.”
Books, music, creation, people, animals, beauty – they are all scents, echoes, and news from our heavenly country – our true home. I pray this blog will lead you to see not only the wondrous treasures scattered about on the pathway before you, but will lead us both to Christ Himself.
