Dreaming and Living

~If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.~ Henry David Thoreau
I believe in this philosophy of life with one addendum; in order to have the desires of our hearts, we have to delight ourselves in the Lord. Our dreams should be lined up with the will of the Father.

I can have all the dreams in the world, but if I'm not doing what God wants me to do, I'll just be frustrated all the time. Believe me, I know from experience.

I still dream big, but I pray about what I want to accomplish and make sure what I want is what God has revealed in his Word. Then I can go forward with confidence that it's the right thing for me.

Amen, Debbie! Thiswas also Tasha Tudor's favorite quote, I believe.

Hi Debbie!
The teacup you saw on my blog is made by a Japanese company called World Wide Quality. The pattern is called English Cottage. They are available online at
A cup and saucer costs $9.99. I would never pay that! I got mine for $3 at a garage sale!
Thanks for stopping by! :D
