Jenn, Jeff and Jacob

Jenn & Jeff







The paper didn't photograph well...its a soft mint green....I REALLY like the way it turned out....
Jenn was about 10, the sweetest little girl--I loved every second with her.  I think I lived for her sweet little voice saying "hello Momma".  My beautiful dog Jeffery was just a baby, but oh, how he loves his girl.

My next page is Jacob when he graduated in 2010...I'm slow.




I've noticed I tend to stick my journaling under the picture, as most of its private, and for their eyes only.
There is only one Jacob...he is such a delight and such a ornery creature, all rolled in one.  He's in college now.  I  wanted to convey my hopes and dreams for him...that he does find his dream, his wings and fly.  I am so proud of him.

Where the Healing Begins

I've had quite a bit of time on my hands recently...lots of time with my thoughts.  Sometimes that is a good thing, and sometimes, it can be downright disheartening.  There is a song, that speaks to my soul.  Its by Tenth Avenue North, and the title is "Healing Begins"....

So you thought you had to keep this up
All the work that you do
So we think that you're good
And you can't believe it's not enough
All the walls you built up
Are just glass on the outside

So let 'em fall down
There's freedom waiting in the sound
When you let your walls fall to the ground
We're here now

This is where the healing begins, oh
This is where the healing starts
When you come to where you're broken within
The light meets the dark
The light meets the dark

Afraid to let your secrets out
Everything that you hide
Can come crashing through the door now
But too scared to face all your fear
So you hide but you find
That the shame won't disappear

So let it fall down
There's freedom waiting in the sound
When you let your walls fall to the ground
We're here now
We're here now, oh

This is where the healing begins, oh
This is where the healing starts
When you come to where you're broken within
The light meets the dark
The light meets the dark

Sparks will fly as grace collides
With the dark inside of us
So please don't fight
This coming light
Let this blood come cover us
His blood can cover us

This is where the healing begins, oh
This is where the healing starts
When you come to where you're broken within
The light meets the dark

TrapperJohn, Jeffery and Shelly bean!
