Radiant hearts….

Been thinking about hearts and all of the ways they get broken, sick, heavy, cold and hard; grateful for all of the creative ways love can heal, restore, warm, lighten and lift them.

I can hardly believe I get to wade in these waters….the brilliant, lovely hearts I encounter in this nourishing blogging community. I’m growing to so love and appreciate each one of you
and the beauty pouring from the lives you share.

Every garden has a face; this one makes me glad to the bone:)

May you all be drenched in encouragement….hope pounding on your chest and breathing life into
your deepest, dearest dreams. Sending big love and prayers for rest, refreshing, restoration and resilience to all of your radiant hearts!

    I am so glad we met! I can not even begin to convey to you how much your blog, your writing, and your comments left for me, help me to…well, turn my leaves forever toward the sun. Thank you, Jennifer. My world is a better place for having "met" you. Hugs, Kathy

    Oh Jennifer what a resounding call to a life of gratitude! Every time I read what you write, phrases just jump off the page into my spirit. You have to be one of the most quotable writers I know. Not to mention the beautiful collage cards you create for your posts! So right back at you my girl, 'drenched in encouragement.'

    Oh, I love that you're thoughts are filled with hearts. So amazing, these gorgeous, grateful, grieving, growing hearts of ours. They say eyes are the windows to our souls, but boy I'd like to see straight into people's hearts sometimes! Thank you for the loving thoughts for our RaDiAnT hEaRtS! I needed that. 🙂
