I waited patiently for the Lord;
he inclined to me and heard my cry.
He drew me up from the pit of destruction,
out of the miry bog,
and set my feet upon a rock,
making my steps secure.
He put a new song in my mouth,
a song of praise to our God.
Many will see and fear,
and put their trust in the Lord.
Cok Guzeldi! I had an incredible trip to Turkey over the week of Thanksgiving. It was wonderful spending time with some of my favorite folks, eating fabulous Turkish food, enjoying the Bosphorous, tromping around my Besiktas, and more or less just soaking in all that is Turkey. Gosh, I miss that place (at least most things!) Here's just a sample of pics...
Cute as cute could be!
I miss you Jen - especially walking arm in arm and having people try to talk to us in English!
Jen and Semih about to enjoy delish Iskender!
I'm praying for you ladies!
7 Rebes plus 3 Paulds plus 2 Blays equals way too much fun decorating gingerbread cookies!
One of my original Adapazari friends, Seyfi - except now he's all grown up and dignified! It was so much fun to see him!
S'mores and more s'mores and even more laughs!
I seriously heart these two! They're kids are cute as ever except lots lots taller. :)
My dear dear friend Selma and her cok tatli nephew! I love you Selma and am praying for you!
Saved the best for last...My hero, Lynette and I on the lovely boat ride to Eminonu. I had such a wonderful time sharing life with you and the fam for a week. Love.
