Peggy E. Pate-Smith    A blog of my personal prayers for and about peace.
Art blog:    This blog is a collection of some of my husband's art work and reflections about what it is like to be the wife of an artist.

As I look toward the future I imagine the beauty of open days, days waiting to be written on with the ink of my life.  What a blessing it is just to live, just to believe in possibilities and to discover the beauty of new days and new opportunities.  A present waiting to be unwrapped each day.  It is a gift to be thankful for.
Thoughts to be examined must first be made visible.  Sometimes this occurs through saying something unintentionally, Freudian slips, perhaps symbols from the universe, dreams, or through journaling or blogging.  Where do thoughts come from and what do we do with them? 
"Thoughts soaring around my head like birds flying around a mountain-sorting through their importance, trying to catch the best winds, continuing on their journey." p.e.p.s. 2002
