Keeping it real...

Yesterday, in the midst of being overwhelmed with the grace of receiving an award, I read an email from my husband that kept it all in perspective. I fell off my chair laughing at his satire. If I ever start to think a little too highly of myself, I know who will help me keep it REAL. More on authenticity later this week...

oh my beutiful heather, thank you so much for your eloquent work. you make my heart blush with tears of apple blossoms. the words you speak are like dew drops in the morning, glistening in the sun waiting to be inhaled by those in need of quenching. You took my parched soul and sprinkled wonderfully refreshing words that filled my day with love. love that can only be summarized as magical. i can only hope to be like you one day. a day that will glow in the incandescent light of the moon. peace to you and many blessings as you follow your creators path in all its wonderful glory.


Lord, don't ever let me hide behind my writing but instead let me be open enough to allow You to shine through.

"And when you come before God, don't turn that into a theatrical production either. All these people making a regular show our of their prayers, hoping for stardom! Do you think God sits in a box seat? Here's what I want you to do: Find a quiet, secluded place so you won't be tempted to role-play before God. Just be there as simply and honestly as you can mangage. The focus will shift from you to God, and you'll begin to sense his grace." Matthew 6:5-6 The Message
