I'm on a journey...... as we all are. Learning, remembering, re-discovering about health, spirituality, relationships, emotions and the mind.

Gaelyn means "Merry & Lively"

I could just as easily put Gaelyn's name to the quote from below, for it describes her well.

"Lovely little six-year-old Lacey was visiting our ministry outpost the other day, going from office to office, swinging on the doorframe, and asking with a smile,

"Would you like to hear my song?"

Her face kissed by the sun with charming freckles,
                          two front teeth       missing,

and eyes dancing with merriment,

who could refuse her?

She didn't really care if she was an interruption.

                         I doubt the thought crossed her mind.

She sang her newly made-up song

              about puppies and kitties,

fully expecting to be delighted in,

then skipped down the hall to grace the occupant of the next office.

She was like a ray of summer sun,

or better,

a garden fairy,

                         f.l.i.t.t.i.n.g            from            office        to            office.

She was a little girl in her glory,


in her desire to delight,

and be    delighted in."

~John & Stasi Eldredge in "Captivating"
