Queen of Fun

Our daughter is currently in Milan, Italy. She has been traveling with a team of young people through Europe for the last month. This experience is her “cup of tea”–community living, team work, group outreach, serving, and sharing the joy of the hope that resides within her heart with others. Here they are in a…

Security

Fountain in Deidesheim, Germany I just read a blog on the growing uneasiness concerning the–not “state of the union”–rather the state of the world. It was written by a woman in New Zealand, who wakes up at night with a sense of emergency. Times are unstable. People are committing suicide because of the loss of their fortunes or…

Memories of Europe…

We had such a great time on our recent trip to Europe… I keep going over the scenes and experiences in my mind. Relationships are just too precious for words.

Two of my Heroes

These two sisters from the Evangelical Sisterhood of Mary located in Darmstadt, Germany, are attending the Toward Jerusalem Council II prayer initiative this week. Their story of reconciliation between Gentile and Jew and the Jew and the Church started with World War II and continues until today. The founder of their community and movement is Basilia…

I think Germany agrees with us, or we are exhausted and letting down enough to really sleep. Maybe both. I sat on the sofa and Wayne lied in bed and read the…

German Wine Country

We flew from Budapest to Frankfurt yesterday, rented a car, and just look off down the road on our way for ministry that Wayne has. My husband likes living on the edge. We didn’t have hotel reservations–just a map and a lot of spirit of adventure. We ended up in the quaint village of Weinwiller….

Lions of Budapest

There are many carved lions scattered throughout the architechture of Budapest–statues, fountains, faces, doorknobs… One day I would love to take photos of just the lions around the city. I especially liked this one as a fountain, located near Vaci Street in an open square. Living water from the belly of the Lion of Judah!

Budapest Breakfast

Wayne has meetings all day, so we rose early and enjoyed a leisurely breakfast overlooking the river.  

Budapest Beautiful at Night

The Danube River and the bridges are lit up so beautifully at night. This is the view from our hotel. We ate a late supper looking out the window at the Parliament and the Chain Bridge. Lousy photo of the Parliament building from across the river. Still, I love the ethereal quality and sense of an…
