one heart

nine years!

appointments and disappointments
a blogging journey that shaped me and molded me
sometimes more than i liked
what a ride!

At the end of a journey, should I say at the start of a new day, can we really move on without first examining our heart?  Our heart. One heart.

Do you know what my first blog was titled? ONE HEART!

We come full circle and what we see is a reflection of ourselves. Do we like what we see?

I must lean more on grace
as I practice the art of letting go.

Thank you for all your support.  All of you inspired me in one way or another, and sometimes we don’t really know until we look back.  And then there were those of you who went above and beyond, who always reached out with love and kindness behind the scenes. I’ll always hold you close to my heart. the WONDERful ones, that’s what I’ll call you. You know who you are. xo

My husband said these special words to me last week. I take them with me wherever I go. I’ll close with them here, in my precious inspired photojournal, ending and starting so very appropriately in autumn.

“You have a beauty in you that no one can darken,
a heart that no one can kill.”



Thank you, Knysh Ksenya, for your beautiful art.

another year
a thousand joys
and sorrows
much to be grateful for
yet again
one rises

blessed thanksgiving to you

be willing to move

where you are is too small

“the winds that were meant to stop you will push you into your purpose”

Joel Osteen

to the wind

through rustling leaves
to amethyst skies
throw caution

watch the heavens burst in royal celebration!

Great is his faithfulness; his mercies begin afresh each morning.
