Out of the BLUE?  .  Did you taste the Bread Haus Hot Cross Buns? . Horse Paintings by Laurie Pace

Sometimes things happen out of the blue.  Even the smallest incident or happening has a domino effect in our lives.  Well, it could be good or it could be bad. Since there is never any warning for those things 'out of the blue'... I think it is so important to live by faith and not by sight. 

Recently this past month, I have seen a glimmer of something new in my life.  It is nothing I can visibly see, but it is something I feel from my heart throughout my body resonating with the core of my being.  After reading the book 'The Healing Codes'  , I accepted the challenge offered in the book.  So for the past three weeks, I have been doing the 'healing codes'.  I have a need for moving forward and stepping out of the self-imposed boundaries I have created. Have you ever noticed how we each do it to ourselves?  We build fences and and boundaries trying to keep ourselves safe...but from what....life?

Why would anyone have an inner heart hurt that they are unworthy?  Why would anyone have an inner heart hurt that they do not deserve happiness: or why would someone live life each day as a shadow ducking from more hurt and constantly trying to please everyone else?  The list could go on and I know each of us has hurt that does go on.  I am trying to understand why.   Do you know why?  Why would we let these hurts affect our lives so deeply and how can we stop it and replace it with love and joy and open acceptance to the love and joy God intends for us? 

Today we stopped at the Bread Haus in Grapevine. Terry picked out about a half dozen cookies and bars to try out and a loaf of Sourdough Bread. I brought home a single Hot Cross Bun. I love HCB's.   But finding a good one that is not homemade is hard.  Guess what...I found one!  I will be ordering them for Easter weekend.  

Note to self:  Stop by Bread Haus once a week and buy a treat.

Blessings, Laurie
