Elisabeth Elliot has it Right...

Once again Mrs. Elisabeth Elliot has it right...

Are Three Hearts Better Than Two? ...Me thinks YES! : )

(You may pause music at bottom of page)

Oh this is my heartcry! We have four daughters, ages 16 to 27. Believe me, according to our life journey so far, the protection offered and given even through heartache at times... Elisabeth has it quite right.

Remember, anything great and glorifying to God is so worth the sacrifice of going against the culture.

May God be glorified...

Our four daughters....Ages 19, 24, & 27...Photography is usually done by our youngest age 16, pictured in bottom photo. You may enjoy her photography blog here: Poetic Capture.

If you would like, please feel free to also check out our daughters' online store and blog: Bellissima Modesty Boutique.

There was a child went forth every day,
And the first object he look'd upon, that object he became,
And that same object became part of him for the day or a certain part of the day,
Or for many years or stretching cycles of years.

The early lilacs became part of this child,
And grass and white and red morning glories, and white and red clover,
and the song of the phoebe-bird,
And the Third-month lambs and the sow's pink-faint litter,
and the mare's foal and the cow's calf.....

~Walt Whitman

Hope you enjoy my thoughts and ponderings here...As you may see, I love my family.

Take care all. Signing out from your blogging friend, wife and mother...that hopeless romanticist and merciful artist whose heart becomes grieved many a time in this ol' world, but knows where her trust remains...The Lord Jesus Christ.

P.S. Please visit my other blog too: ...For fun tips, good ol' 40s movie suggestions and little somethings that will make you smile, perhaps make you cry but will encourage you. : )

Amelia, I peruse your blog and see the many ways our spirits bear witness. Loves, and books, and people, and music, and life in general. Because of Christ, our Savior, I find you to be one fascinating and very interesting person. Love your blogs, your message. I need to read deeper to see your connection to Times Square Church and David Wilkerson... one of my favorite places and favorite preachers. God bless you abundantly.
