Egyptian Princess

Long eye-lashes
painted face
a certain air betrays her race
her royal expression is not common place
strong, sleek-
she’s a stately grace
holds herself regally
chest held high
dignified,
posture perfect royalty
absolutely feline
acute vision,
wisdom’s eyes
when she curls herself small
she gently defies
preconceived ideas of where truth lies…
her agility and manner 
reveal her family ties
swat, snarl, a gentle bite
playing with her prey is sheer delight
Her roots remain
there’s no denying 
this Egyptian Princess
hails from lions.

Linking up here for Open Link Night with Brian and friends:

Strawberry Family

Wordless Wednesday with just a few words…
My daughter and her friend were making a fruit salad during a sleepover, 
when she decided these strawberries resembled a family!
She followed with an extensive photo shoot. 
Sadly, the family was eaten. 

and  then, she {snapped}

What’s Still On My Nightstand…

Excited to be reading these two books by Elisabeth Elliot

Well, thanks to Lisa over at Lisa Notes… I am going to attempt to come clean. I am very behind on my reading again but since I can write about my “still reading” list (thank you, Lisa for inspiration)- I will share the reading list. But if you visit her she has some wonderful books she has been diving into and also stop by and see the many other ambitious readers at 5 Minutes For Books.


What I finished (walking the walk of shame… as this is my shortest list ever!)
The Grace of Giving by Marja Meijers- Which I reviewed HERE. Put it on your own MUST READ list. It’s short but excellent writing. Rich.

Still Reading (Yes, really!) :
Goodness Gracious Green by Judy Christie
Bringing Up Girls by  Dr. James Dobson
Praying For Your Prodigal Daughter by Janet Thompson

And then I Added These
The Journals of Jim Elliot by Elisabeth Elliot
The Savage, My Kinsman by Elisabeth Elliot
Breaking Free From Anger & Unforgiveness by Linda Mintle, PH.D.

I have been meaning to get to This:
Heaven In Her Arms by Catherine Hickem

Big confession and conclusion. I do NOT like to read books on my computer so I bailed on the Online Study by Rene Swopes. I love the idea of the free book (and appreciate it) but miss my Kindle in that I could read in a relaxed place. I do not have a laptop, so curling up to read this and the other free books on my computer is about as appealing as say… scooping my eyes out with a melon ball spoon…um, sorry. I just can’t sit at the computer more than I do for blogging and other research, work etc. Sad.


Don’t hate me because I am the slowest reader ever…just visit the others!
