Deb Claytor - can you tell me where did you get your pillow cases? I love them, and my room is yellow….these would be great.

Jill @ Cora Anne Designs - So bright and cheery, and I LOVE that you feel like it’s an extension of YOU. Just as it should be!

lissa - I Just LOVE it! you have to tell me how you put together that orange sign! Did you buy it or make it? LOVE your style it’s just what you said, feminine with a little bit of masculine. amazing. I’m so happy you’re so happy there. praise! And you’re collecting some FUN books! I have most of the ones you have here. Books are one of my favorite things to have around- and candles, and flowers! Love you girl!

Lemonade Makin Mama - Oh man I haven’t read blog buddies for weeks and I am sure I’ve missed a ton of good things… these images are stunning. You girls are doing an awesome job!! Everything looks so welcoming and homey. I love that.

brenda - good to hear from you again. it has been quite awhile.
I am curious to know what you are doing to eliminate the feeling of waiting for the other shoe to drop ???
how have you been feeling ?? do you feel your health is on the positive side now ??

Shannon - Love what you have done so far in your new place. Light, airy, fresh and clean. A HAPPY feeling really shines through your photos. Slowly but surely it, will all come together. Thanks for sharing!

Ter'e - Thrilled that you are in your new home. I am already anxious about how you will decorate it for Christmas. I loved your last home’s fireplace and dining room.

While browsing Layla Palmer’s blog, I was so thrilled to see one of your signs!!!! YEA! You go girl!!!!! So perfect for their Sweet P.

Hope you are getting stronger and stronger with each passing day.

Kelly - I know you don’t know me, but I follow your blog along with many others and I am so blessed when I read it. Your spirit is so humble and I love how you talk about your fears. It’s so funny how God uses people we don’t even know to bless us!!! Thank you! Kelly

Kristen - When I need inspiration, I tend to head outside. Nothing inspires more than creation!

jamie - Love this! Thank you for sharing. I am at the place of surrendering all of me to all of Him. Trust!

BARBARA NELSON - Oh He wrote that fair-tale ending yes he did you just have a couple more chapters, I believe it and I believe in You Too!. I am so lucky to be able to witness it!

Love you sweet Girl, have a great weekend!

Glenda Childers - Your journey has been long and hard … thanks for sharing it with us as you grow and change. So sweet how God drew you and helped you stop the insanity.


susan@avintagefarmwife - Wow. This is powerful stuff. So glad you are on your way. You are a dangerous girl! Hugs

Debbie Wiens - You have stepped out of the boat, and now you are walking on water. You are in the safest place you can be. So am I. Are journeys are similar. No longer will we run here or there, but we will surrender and run to the one who can save, that is Jesus. In that I believe we will see and be who we are.

Vera McKendrick - Just by the way, my nickname is lisa…so when you wrote to lisa at the top…it was as if God was talking directly to me.

What you have written is lovely, and so pure and direct from the heart. Few people can be honest with themselves in the sight of looking ‘not normal’.

I believe that when God gives us the gift of writing, it is sometimes a double edged sword. Very seldom do we see the impact that we are making because what we ‘see’ never really matches up to the words of thanks…

But I saw my life run through your words and God speaking to me as if your story was my own, with a few minor differences. but even those he seemed to highlight with a yes-but.

Never stop writing! Few are gifted, and even less pick up there pens and listen!

God bless!
