I LOVED The Hiding Place! Incredible book!

My week has been fun because my Mom has been visiting. I had to take her to the airport today. :( We are going to miss her.

Thank you for the nice comment left at my blog, I am indeed blessed to have a friend like Barb, she is the one who encouraged me to blog. I've read everything from or by Corrie ten Boom that I could get my hands on. There is even some old recordings I have heard of her speaking which is very fun, she had a great sense of humor. She was an amazing woman. I am now encouraged to reread her writing.

Love the chicken. Didn't see any like it when I was in Peru, but that was a LONG time ago. Lots going on for you, this week and we're only to Wed.;)


oh goodness...as for the book...read it years ago..a good reminder for me to read it again


Loved Anne Frank and visited her hiding place, my dad is Dutch, his uncles hid Jewish children during the war and had to go into hiding themselves. Love reading about the courageous things people do when called upon! Blogging once a week seems like enough to me, I can barely get words on the page, life intervenes, right?

The Hiding Place is one of my favorites! If you liked that one I just finished one that you might like - Lydia Minatoya's The Strangeness of Beauty. It has nothing to do with the holocaust, but it's just a beautiful book about women.


I love Corrie Ten Boom! She was just the cutest, most courageous lady ever. She is on the top of my list of people that I hope to meet in heaven one day!


I'm with ya - had a bad week too - got strep throat. But hey - it's ONLY strep throat! ha ha


those pesky fire hydrants! they can get so nasty!!ha ha
We also had an issue with our water heater. Thankfully we were able to fix it before it really made a mess!
Enjoy your book, it's a good one.

What a week! I've been trying to slow down a little and doing some sewing :) The kids never stop though..


Penny, you're welcome to borrow my "Hinds Feet in High Places". Know you'd love it.
Sure is humbling to find a fire hydrant stepping out in front of you. Bummer!!
Love the chicken from Peru. How very blessed you are! Enjoy. A chick for one classy chick.


Oh crazy too! What's up with the fire hydrant? Was it atleast warm outside?

We are waiting on the contact for our house! Keep those fingers crossed please!


Yes, it has been a week indeed. Misbehaving children, long car rides, and a sewing machine on the fritz. But your reading choice is quite excellent and sure to pep you up! I think I'll go for a good read myself...


So sorry you've had a not so good week. Are you okay from the fire hydrant thing?? :) Here's praying that your weekend and next week are much better!! :)


Darned fire hydrant - I hope you put up a good fight, Penny! The book has been on my reading list for summer - I devoured Anne Frank as a child - can't wait to read this one! Get some rest!

What a week. sorry but my week was goo boring to saw maybe. have a great weekend!!


I haven't heard of that book, but I'm going to have to put it on the hold list at the library. Stay clear of fire hydrants, ok?


Bless your heart! Try to rest up. We had our hot water heater break down to not too long ago. Hang in there........

And thanks for visiting my blog and commenting on my Kaffee Fassett Charm Square quilt. I'll be bookmarking your blog for sure!


I hope you have recovered from the fire hydrant incident. That book will surely be on my bucket list!


Uh-Oh -- that first bullet doesn't sound good. I hope you weren't hurt!


Ohh Penny! PHEW I'm hoping you have a better week. Stay clear of hydrants.

LOVE The Hiding Place. Rent the movie if you can find it....MOVING! I love your blog. I'm a sewer myself (but I don't have a blog).


Sweet Penny...so sorry to hear about the accident, but glad to read you are okay!!!

Big hugs!


The tale of the sisters Ten Boom is so moving, and although a little hard to read, it really forces you to look at the world with a different and kinder eye.
