I love to know about my past family. grandparents and great grandparents and beyond.
I wonder if they prayed for their future generations. I wonder what they liked to do, how they lived their lives, were they kind and good people, It is so nice when you get an idea of the past so that you can learn more about who you are in the future.
It also makes me realize that we need to be praying for our future generations and things we do now will have an impact for generations to come.

Just thinking away, day dreaming!

I am wondering if I could dream a dream that could come true. What would I dream? What would you dream? I think of all the nice things i could have but without the perfect person to share them with it just wouldn't be as nice. So i think that making the most of what i have is all I can really do.
but then i still have dreams of one day and if i could. Then the thing that happens all too fast is that you wake up and the dream is over.


I have a book where I cut out things I like and put them in it, a quote, a poem or maybe a song.

today i was looking at it and found these.

How I revel in your lovely letters.
Opening one of them is like
plunging into a bath of rose water.

Maybe one day I will get a real love letter
with roses, how cool would that be.

I having been day dreaming way too much lately and not getting much real art done so today I plan to do some art. I think the word Dream will be in it so by tonight i will post something new.
I have had a few really different months, my dad passed away and that really rocked my world. I realize that I am not his little girl anymore and now i feel I have kinda lost my place and need to find a new way a better way to be. I wonder how to do that, where I can find that.
In the last few months I have lost wieght and done some things that I have never thought about. how odd I am changing and don't know why.

I have a journal book that I have started to write my thoughts in.
On the top of the page are quotes, here are a few i liked:

At every crossroad, follow your dream.
It is courageous to let your heart lead the way.
by: Thomas Leland

another one was
Only those who will risk going too far can possibly
find out how far one can go.
By: T S Eliot

and the last one for tonight

Take a chance! All life is a chance. The man who goes furthest
is generally the one who is willing to do and dare.
by: Dale Carnegie

these have made me think of where I want to go and be.
