Back Home in Morocco

Pottery and embroidery from Fez.
I have returned to my life in the big city at the edge of the Atlantic Ocean, and I have lovely, held close to my heart memories of Fes and Riad Fes Medina. I have my ruby slippers in case I need to go home:-), I have wonderful memories of colors, hand-painted pottery by people I have actually met, Andalusian music, Pastillia, and new friends that treat me like a sister. I hope to return for a weekend in December. "En Sha Allah" (if God wills) as they say in this neck of the woods! It was a great weekend of prayer, praise and encouragement with each other in our traveling group. I drifted off to sleep thankful to the Lord for many, many blessings. Now, I return to my teaching in the corner of the world where God has placed me. May He be honored in my classroom this week.
(My teaching thought for today: "Once children learn how to learn, nothing is going to narrow their mind. The essence of teaching is to make learning contagious, to have one idea spark another." -- Marva Collins)
Dyed ruby red leather slippers from Fes.
PS Today, I am highlighting a need of an organization that helps women and girls leave the sex-trafficking industry, from another part of the world, which I am a part of. CHO - Cambodia Hope Organization needs our help. Please read here and help a fantastic project in one of the poorest areas of the world. Thank you for reading. Let's all be God's hands and bring beauty and goodness to these sisters.

  1. Great to read your reflections on the great weekend in Fes. I would love to visit there-you've opened the door much wider to see what awaits the guest. Smiles at your ruby red leather slippers.
    I'll look at your website-so many orgs are now popping up on this issue-such an important need to put a spotlight on it. Thankfully that is happening.
