the beauty of truth




Love is extravagant

in the price it is willing to pay





the time it is willing to give






the hardships it is willing to endure



and the strength it is willing to spend

Joni Eareckson Tada





my love and grattitude to all of you

who continue to uphold me and with your

love and prayers...




Among God's best gifts to us

are the people who love us...

Dear Kate, thank you for your thoughts and Prayers, I know you have a point of reference to the challenges we are also facing. It is nice when Mom still has some good days where we can celebrate her Life and she can still enjoy being on this side of time and eternity for however long it is.

Your Family is also in our thoughts and Prayers, I love your Post today and the lovely Treasures you've photographed.

Gretchen said...

I love your silver crucifix Kate. I am an avid lover of these, even though I'm not Catholic, my born again beliefs are shared with my design of jewelry through using broken and disgarded religious elements in them. To me the crucifix represents the Jesus greatest sacrafice to all believers in what he did for each of us that day on the cross. The ultimate sacrafice...
Beautiful post!
Gretchen

leona said...
