another example of faith

(he got in there by himself)

I'm not some crazy Holy Roller, though I grew up with that. I've learned through the years to communicate with God as I perceive him. I pray for guidance, and I accept the things that come as an answer to prayers.

Dolly Parton

I guess that's what it looks like when you pray in faith believing. Ask. Look for the answer. Accept what comes as the answer. That's what it is to be a mystic...Rumi, Hafiz...Dolly.

Dolly has a lot of wisdom! Some folks get hung up on the boobs & all the makeup, but she's got soul and shares it--I love that! Is your ginger boy going backpacking this weekend, Wanda? ;o)

To see those three names in the same sentence and Honey Boy in a suitcase all at the same time is an answer to a prayer I didn't even know I prayed.

Tracy, I saw another Dolly quote that said something like, "I hope people realize that under the hair there's a brain and under the boobs, there's a heart."

Deb, I love being the answer to prayer--this one is Mijo. HoneyBoy has the white face.

I'm with Dolly. Been there. Done that. Feel that. Amen, Sister.
