I want to think again of dangerous and noble things, I want to be light and frolicsome. I want to be improbable and beautiful and afraid of nothing as though I had wings.

Friends, wishing for you a place to sit and dream to ponder and pray, to thank and reflect.
And wishing, too, carved out time to place your heart at His feet, thanking him for Fathers. Our Father who art in Heaven….we praise you. And our earthly fathers, we love and respect you.
Happy Dreaming. Hoping you discover a lush green space in which to dream.
Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.–Phillippians 4:8
Linking today with Sandra Heska King for Still Saturdays

What a lovely spot of green! Happy weekend wandering to you Elizabeth.
I was just about to visit you and comment on your post. Be there in a moment, :). But oh yes, this is in the heart of D.C. a respite from the busy at The Botanical Gardens.
Happy Weekend wanderings, wonderings, and ponderings.
So glad to have you link up, Elizabeth. This spot . . . I would love to settle there and sip some tea. And listen. And dream. And that quote of Mary’s–love it.
