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!

A Woman I Know in Saudi Arabia

I know...I'm supposed to be incommunicado. Shhhh, don't tell, but I had to sneak on to tell you about something quite incredible. There's this woman I know...she's actually a very good friend and neighbor to my sister in law. We've met several times at family gatherings. Janine is the nicest person; just the type of gal you want to sit next to at a party where you don't know anybody. She has a sweet smile and is so interested in everyone around her. Well anyway, my hubby texted me to tell me that Janine has gone off to Saudi Arabia to teach English for a year; and that she has a fascinating blog describing this mid-life adventure. If you want a first hand view of what it might be like to be a woman in Saudi, you really need to visit her blog. I'm giving you the link to one of my favorite posts. And I bet she'd love to hear from you...it must be very lonely there for her; so far from family.
