Welcome friends...thanks for coming by. We're seeking beauty in all of creation... in our faith and our families; our art and our music; our crafts and kitchens, and even in our own backyard. We'll share a poem or a recipe, a picture or a memory; maybe a dream of how we wish our life could be. And though we acknowledge that the world can be harsh, we're keeping it pleasant in our little corner; endeavoring to keep the words from the Book of all Books: ...Whatsoever things are lovely; think on these things.

I so enjoy hearing from you...so leave me a comment; it'll make my day!

Meeting the Family

One of the nicest benefits of being a Christian is that you are automatically a part of a great big family. It doesn't matter what church you attend, where you live, your political views, or your economic status, you are in. (Even if you don't always feel like you are.) Somehow we are supernaturally bound together by this one common thing: we love Jesus. When you meet another believer, you just feel at home. That's how I felt today when I met the lovely ladies from Mennonite Girls Can Cook. They were having a book signing in my area today, so I popped in to say hello. (And to purchase their fantastic cookbook!) These terrific ladies are raising money for needy children in the Ukraine with proceeds from their cookbook...busy fulfilling the words of Jesus when he said "I was hungry, and you fed me." I drove home feeling so very thankful that God has included me in his family, and that I can call 'the Mennonite Girls' my sisters in Christ.

"I'm so glad I'm a part....of the family of God...joint heirs with Jesus as we travel along..."

This must have been a fun thing--to meet and greet this group of "sisters"!

What a wonderful realization we have in common. We continually are meeting such dear sisters in Christ and also feel amazed at the bond we feel. It was wonderful of you to come out on a busy day and say hello. Thank you! Having a face to put to blogs and blog comments is the best!
