Finally, with a stroke of luck, lots of patience and mosquito bites, I *captured my first silhouette photo.

"He maketh the storm a calm, so that the waves ... are still" Psalm 107.29 

"It is glorious to have a big trouble,
 That sweeps you right out to the sea,
 That sinks you in the depth of the ocean,
 Yet safe in His keeping to be; 
To come up again and acknowledge His wondrous deliverance and care,
How He calmeth the storm in a whisper, 
How you triumphed because He was there." C. SIMPSON

Sunday Citar/Sunday Snapshot/Simple Things Sunday

There's nothing like the simple pleasure of stopping and smelling the roses at the flower stalls in a street market to brighten the day. I just love the vibrant mix of colours and scents. Flowers make me so happy!
  "For He careth for you" 1 Peter 5.7 Dear Lord, it is good to plant A bulb, dry, brown and bare And then, in a short time, to find Enchanting beauty there. And it is good to know that hearts, Cast down by grief and pain Fed by the soil of Thy great love Can break to flower again. Author - Elisa Campbell

Wordish Wednesday - Dubai's Pink Taxis

Unsure where the taxi stand was upon our arrival at the Dubai Airport, we sought the assistance of an airport personnel, who, to our surprise, directed us to a stand where several ladies in pink uniforms were waiting in front of a row of pink cars! Next to the pink cars, were a row of red-topped taxis.

These pink taxis, driven by ladies, are intended for female passengers and families while the red ones are for men.

I am so loving this concept! I wish we had the same system in our country. Imagine traveling solo and arriving in a foreign land at an ungodly hour. Doesn't the thought of hopping into a car driven by a male stranger to some unfamiliar place scare you?

With her permission, I took this picture of our lady driver who was from Sri Lanka.

Yayyyyyy for the pink ladies!!!
