Something happens in the mind and heart of a person who stares hell directly in the face yet is able to defeat it. Such a deep and raw beauty emerges. After such an experience, life carries with it a sweetness and a peace no matter what challenges may arise. I don't know that I can really explain this concept with words, it might simply have to be lived, but I think this quote does a pretty good job conveying the message. (I found the quote today on one of my favorite blogs, Apples for Poppy Anne - thank you Erin!)

I'm back from vacation and I have a lot of catching up to do. Thank you to everyone who wished me a happy birthday....they really do keep getting sweeter and sweeter every year.


  1. "Faith is holding on to something which doubt is theoritically possilbe. It's believing in things that are unseen."

  2. Beautiful!
    I adore your blog. and art.
    Another similar quote that I love is "then, when it seems we will never smile again, life comes back." I find comfort in that reminder.
    Wonderful and I am so glad you enjoy my blog.

  3. I can't tell you enough how much your blog is blessing me in such deep ways. This blog is a treasure. I'm so happy I found it. The depth you bring out and the questions that you make me ask myself are amazing. By the way, I asked in an earlier post if I could use a picture of yours but I wanted to mention it here in case you missed it because it was on an older post...

  4. Your blog just flat out makes me smile...and the quote reminds me of one of my fave childhood books called "Hope for the Flowers" by Trina Paulus.
