Prayers of My Soul....

I am always drawn again and again it seems to creating sacred little places to record our deepest thoughts, questions, prayers and hopes. Every now and then, I pull out the sweet diaries I kept as a little girl, childlike handwriting that even then was compelled to write what my heart hoped to speak into being. The personally written words always made the feelings more real...more tangible. I just love the idea of journals created as a piece of artwork. Placing these sacred whispers of our soul in a place of honor, on a sweet easle...with a scented candle shimmering next to it... just seems to usher in the tender voice of God... "Sweet child of promise, I value who you are and are becoming and all that your heart wants to speak...all that you feel matters deeply to me". You may find more images of this new journal and tag ensemble that is being offered in my Etsy Shop(update...journal is sold!).

I came across this video today. It seemed gentle, quiet and beautiful. Some of us may at times struggle with the truth of the message but the place deep within where this peace exists is where the sweetest of healing can take place. Wherever you find yourself today, even if you just feel unsettled in your spirit, the words are comforting. Remember to pause the music currently playing on my blog (on the lower right sidebar) before viewing the "Blessing".

Thank you for your sweet words on my blog. I read an incredible book called "Anonymous" by Alicia Britt Chole that really helped quiet my restlessness during the winter season of the last few years.

I would LOVE to do a trade with you! I've never done one before, but it sounds great. I really value your work- the meaning behind it, especially. I've even wondered how I could visit you at one of your events... still thinking about that one.

Beautiful journal and video!
I read the video. At the moment
I don't have sound. It is not
hooked up yet.

Would you keep my father-in-law
in your prayers for healing. His
name is Wallace.

God Bless in Jesus Name,
You and Yours and Your
Creative Life and Health!!!

HI Lani,
Again you have created another beautiful journal, I just came back from A Breather.. A retreat where each woman just gets to spend time alone with the Lord on a little island across a bridge here in Hawaii. We just spend time with the Lord in prayer, meditation, his word and journaling and creating. I have returned refreshed and ready to get going on a workshop I will be preparing for 30 women called." Seasons Of The Soul". We will be creating journals and have a time of sharing our hearts. Keep me in prayer as I prepare and I wish I could create lovely journals as you do (smile) but you truly inspire me to create!!

Your artwork is always so beautiful and touched the heart and soul.

I agree with you on journals. They are true artworks of the spirit in all ways.

Hope you get a chance to enjoy the nice sunny Spring weather! The flowers are just popping up everywhere here!
