It's the scenery that comes to mind whenever I think of Australia. With it's abundant natural beauty, it's impossible to believe that one person could ever see all of it.
This is a cove on the Grand Pacific Drive, an 86-mile stretch of road along the southeast coast of New South Wales. When we reached this spot, and were the only people present, my heart's desire would have been to snuggle into my favorite bag chair and absorb the view with a glass of wine in my hand...a Hungerford Hill Tumbarumba, please. I think I would never tire of watching these huge, rolling waves crash and spray against the towering sandstone cliffs.

Though I didn't attend any quilt shows while in Australia, I did manage to find some quilts displayed at the Sydney Royal Easter Show. Since space is limited for displaying quilts, I thought this method of showing them, wrapped around cylinders, was quite creative. I also liked their "ribbons" which were actually small felt banners. 
At this morning's worship service, the message about "reaching out to the world around us" touched me. In Acts 10:34 Peter says (though it could be me!) "I now realize how true it is that God does not show favoritism, but accepts people from every nation who fear him and do what is right." - Acts 10:34

I am blessed to have traveled to Australia (and other countries) and know with certainty that we are one through Christ. God bless us, everyone.
