" A walk in the clouds "



It seems like forever since I sat here and wrote

a blog post and in a small way it has been.

I have allowed the changes in my life to send me 

drifting and let the waves overcome me.

The ocean has thrashed me back and forth

over and over then end to end.



{ Linen and window treatments from the Goodwill Store }



Lord let this life of mine yield unto you

as you leave me with peace and serenity.




{ Vintage wood shutters rescued from the heap }





I junk when my heart is heavy

this weary soul of mine is uplifted by searching

for that one piece that will speak to me.




{ Old wire basket and glass bottles from Goodwill }




An open heart willing to listen and

 love not worrying about the imperfections.

Blessed I am by the unwanted

of another's heart here now

has a place to belong to me.



{ Vintage chandelier gifted to me }



Returning to where I started, where I belong

and where each of you found a place in my heart.




{ Second pair of shutters rescued covering a small window }


A new day awaits as I continue

to search, to grow and yield.

Oh Kate,
How I have missed you and with good reason. Your up lifting message adds beauty to my heart, indeed you have returned to where your heart takes you and that's to all of us who need to hear your message, and your sharing. Indeed you are so blessed with the beauty of pieces imperfect and using the imperfections profoundly and inspiringly is heartfelt.
No greater love then the love you add to all you collect and the re-imaging you do to beautify each and every peace that enters your home.
I love the kitchenette in your cottage, and the shutters are so French quarters, rustic with the best shade of whitish grey to them.
Your search in growing and yielding encourages us to take a moment and listen, listen....

So pleased to see you posting, I did not want to put pressure on you and was almost ready to give you a shout to see if all is well, and please post some of your Kate beauty.

Love your Goodwill finds, our Goodwill, Salvation Army are not so exciting, but you can be certain after seeing your post I will be looking much closer to the bedding racks.

You my dear are so inspiring!
I have one question, do you ever have little getaways to the cottage out back? I know I sure wood :)

Lots of love,
Xoxo

I have missed you and have prayed for you. I am in a season of surrender, laying my life down into the embrace of His loving will too.

Your guest cottage is a place I could dwell in. Beautifully serene and meaningful reminding me of " that which was lost is found". Love you xxo

Beautiful thoughts from a beautiful lady who speaks with her heart. Love all the reclaimed things.

Jeanette@Creating A Life said...

I'm happy to see you here, Kate! I do try to keep up on Facebook, but good to see you writing here as well. Lovely words and images, as always. In this season, I sometimes feel tossed from turmoil back to peace from one day to the next. I hate that some days I'm slow to remember "the anchor". Here's to a weekend of peace {and found treasures} my friend.
