I always see beautiful hibiscus plants along with many other flowering bushes. They cheer my spirits and encourage my soul. They are so bright and friendly whether they are in Italia, the USA or right here in Morocco. So, here is some beauty in the lovely creation God has made and placed in Morocco.
There is also beauty in the painted ceilings and beautiful archways one finds in most towns and cities in this part of Morocco. I also love the mosaics; one can see them on the risers of stairways, decorating a column or under a fountain. This one reminds me of the cross because that's what I notice as well as the tiles. I am thinking this might be a springboard for a painting.

I also see beauty in the children I teach. I have made lots of art with them, and they have poured themselves into it. This week they are working on mosaics, which they love, and the older ones are doing texture drawings. I have had fun thinking up ideas, even though it is sometimes hard, and the seventh grade has been more than a challenge.

I was not sure if it was the time or place to say anything, and I ached for the little one. I said something that would be encouraging and helpful for the child considering we have a loving God. I wanted to give hope.
We have a loving God. Jesus came and is our loving God, loving neighbor, loving Savior. This is my treasure in my heart, perfect Beauty.
I pray God will make a way for me to share Beauty in this place.
"Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things."
