5 minutes: together

Together, women all over the world came together to surpass expectations and fund some of Mercy House Kenya's needs in advance of the goals.

Now, we are coming together again to fund a second home for these women.

Together, we accomplish so much.

In the book I have been reading, "a million little ways," Emily Freeman talks about we are all artists.  We all create.  She says "That's what artists do.  They pull back the covering on our inner life, allowing us to see things beneath the surface, things that, without their compassion, creativity, and generosity, we may have missed."

Together, we have created art for these women in Kenya.  The art of compassion, of love, of generosity.  We have been creative in helping them create new lives.


Five Minute Friday


  1. How exciting! And I love the Emily Freeman quote about artists. Thanks for sharing on this Five-Minute Friday! Happy weekend!

  2. Stopping by from FMF. I just read Emily Freeman this week in a guest post she did on Ann Voskamps blog and have added her book to my Amazon list. After running into her again in your post, I must need to read her book. Wonderful post about together. It scoops me up into the fold of together.

  3. Such a gorgeous togetherness post. Thank you.


Thank you for reading my escaped words! I would love to hear from you, but all comments are moderated since I am not paid to advertise for sewers in Riyadh, Dubai, Saudi Arabia.
