Don't EVER Let Anything Stand in the Way of YOUR Dreams....

Catch the star that holds your destinty.
the one that forever twinkles
within your heart.
Take advantage of precious opportunities,
while they still sparkle before you.
Always believe that your ultimate goal
is attainable as long as you
commit yourself to it...

Though barriers may sometimes
stand in the way of your dreams,
remember that your destiny is hiding behind them.
Accept the fact that not everyone
is going to approve of the choices you make
but have faith in your judgement.

Catch the star that twinkles in your heart
and it will lead you to your destiny's path.
Follow that pathway and uncover the
sweet sunrises that await you.
Take pride in your accomplishments
as they are steppingstones to your dreams.
Understand that you may make mistakes
but don't let them discourage you.

Value your capabilites and talents
for they are what makes YOU truly unique.

The greatest gifts in life are not purchased
but acquired through hard work
and determination.

Find the star that twinkles in YOUR heart
for you are capable of making
your brightest dreams come true.
Give your hopes everything you've got
and you will catch the star
that holds your destiny.

Tales from the Tree House...Patio

Wow this has been a really strange week weather wise. We've gone from the 50s all the way to the 90s in a matter of 2 days. Dry as a bone to rain so hard one can't see. But ya know what??? God sent us a beautiful gift the other night. We are so blessed with our new place. It is like living in a Tree House over looking a green grass field with beautiful wild flowers blooming every few days. There is a daily train that comes down the trackes behind the grassy knoll but it's not loud and Chico loves to see them come by.
Kassy came running in the other night after it has been raining so hard and grabbed the camera. Out to the Tree House Patio she ran and this is the reason why.........
When my days are long and I can't sleep,
When life seem to much for me to bear,
I step outside the doors, to my Tree House Patio,
and I am reminded that God is everywhere.
Thank you Lord for helping us find the perfect place on earth.
My Little Tree House Apartment is the peaceful and still,
It's a heaven for my family, Chico and me.
