Disturb us, Lord, when we are too well pleased with ourselves, when our dreams have come true because we have dreamed too little, when we arrived safely because we sailed too close to the shore.

Disturb us, Lord, when with the abundance of things we possess we have lost our thirst for the waters of life; Having fallen in love with life, we have ceased to dream of eternity and in our efforts to build a new earth,we have allowed our vision of the new Heaven to dim.

Disturb us, Lord, to dare more boldly, to venture on wider seas where storms will show your mastery; where losing sight of land, we shall find the stars.

We ask You to push back the horizons of our hopes; And to push us into the future in strength, courage, hope, and love.

- Sir Francis Drake


I stole this from the Close's blog...but it's pretty relevant for me right now! I really like it so I thought I'd share it...just giving credit where credit is due!

Hey Stacey! I just read your comment on our blog and thought I'd respond here...since I don't know your email address and Dan is still sleeping :) Most of the fabric is from JoAnne Fabric in Michigan. It's a chain there like Fabricland is here I think. They have some pretty cool stuff! I haven't been to Fabricland lately though and I'm sure they have some cool stuff too. Hope you're doing great! Laura :)
