budding wood


I walked under and my eyes turned heavenward...and in that moment His handiwork drew a word picture on my heart... written in that budding tree.

wood...how does something so soft and pliable push through that seemingly unbending surface? It sits idle for the winter months...unseen activity  One would think was dead.  no life.  but with increasing Sonshine stimulating growth.

for all the seasons of my heart...that seem to go from Ur to Haran and down into Egypt storing up all the words...building altars only to come


a place that the words cannot be contained anymore...come budding forth culminating in a clump that needs constant care to form into real living sentences that breathe...that breathe life - value - joydaughtership - praise ...to be able to take the hardness of wandering in the wilderness for years to shape these into whole bites for the chewing and digesting...so that my soul no longer lives deaf to starving calls crying out around the world.


and Jesus said to her...to me...Did I not say to you, if you believe, you will see the glory of God?" Not just so I can speak but that

He can speak to me...to us from the heart of the fire...burning through the hardness of wood so that the harvest...one little bud turns to 1000...so

How shall the soul in us longer live Deaf to their starving call, For whom the blood of the Lord was shed, And His body broken to give them. bread, If we eat our morsel alone!"

Let’s be patient and trust that the treasure we look for is hidden in the ground on which we stand.— Henri J. M. Nouwen

I am so excited about She Speaks Conference!  It is a conference for women's heart.  I think of Romans 8:30 says….Bring them into the calling that You have predestined for them.  He has a calling for each one of us and I am excited to begin this journey of creating the art that He has placed with my heart.  I also long to help others fulfill their calling as well. SO - please pray about coming.  Click here to find out more information on the She Speaks Conference to learn more about women connecting the hearts of women to the heart of our Father God and that your heart is to serve Him and His daughters, as He leads.
