Ooooooooh, that's GOOD.
:0DHello, friends! Waving! xx
I've just ordered 4 more of The Hawk and the Dove trilogy to give away. I recommend it to friends but have already bought 10 or more (before today)and gave them away - and ask those to lend them out. I sent two to Australia from England but I live in Poland! It is the best book I have ever read. Time to read it again. Thank you!
Thank you so much for coming by to say that! I'm delighted that you enjoy the Hawk & Dove stories. If you ever wondered what happened next to Prior William of St Dunstans Priory, or who was the next abbot after Peregrine, the story continues in the rest of the series . . . While I was writing Book 4 (The Hardest Thing To Do), I read chunks of it to my family as it was developing. When it came to the bit where Prior William re-emerges into the story, one of my daughters gasped, "Oh no! It's *him*!!" — which was very pleasing.Now I'm wondering what it's like to live in Poland, and what kind of house or apartment you have, and if you are in a town or in the country, and what Polish people have for breakfast . . .
I wrote this as a reply and it returned. I had attached pictures. I can send them to an email address.Heres my reply.Thank you for writing back! I actually did read the sequels and they are very good but I treat them as a separate series because Pelligrine is not the center :)My husband is Polish. We met in San Francisco in 1985. We married and lived in Oregon, then Chicago for 3 years. He became a Christian in Austria (thru the ministry of YWAM) after escaping from Poland during the Solidarity strikes. I actually had spent the summer before meeting him working with OM in Bromley, Uk!He has been a fulltime missionary since 1983. I since 1986.We moved here in 1990 (visited first in 1988 with our 4 month old son). Went on to have 4 more children (1 girl). Before we married, I told him I did not want to have children! He said ok, but if God gives the desire, we will have kids. When I found out I was pregnant, I said but I don't have the desire. He whispered, you have 9 months to get it. He explained that He knew me better than I knew myself and I would thank Him for our children. I do! Even with all the heartaches! Second son born lack of oxygen - our treasure - but is mentally handicapped but a gem. Oldest son went to Australia for a YWAM school - came back with symptoms of schizophrenia. God has led us with him and gave him the most incredible wife that adores him. We adore her! Right now, he needs prayer. The doc changed his meds 9 days ago and he hasnt slept - is a zombie. His wife takes amazing care of him. All our friends are praying for him. Third son - diagnosed 6 years ago with MS! Lyme disease the cause. He is living with us and trusting God for healing. Trying new protocol with high D3 and magnesium. Treatment helping many to get back their life.People think we must be overwhelmed but we are not. We love each other and trust God as He leads us all.Daughter is 23. Living in Oregon. She is in between jobs and preparing herself for a better job. Very disciplined.Youngest is 20, plays guitar beautifully and plays with 8 young ladies in a music group of their own music. Besides guitar, basoon, violin, viola, flute, double bass, accordion, piano, percussibasoonI love living here. I love visiting elsewhere but this is home. We have a ministry of hospitality. We have gatherings to read the bible outloud in turns to hear what God has to say. To be touched by Him. We spend time with people. We love on people - sometimes with words of encouragement and sometimes words to challenge - so all can walk on that precious narrow road that gives life.We live in a village of about 3000. In a wooden, log house. We bought 2 old log homes cheaply. Had them brought here and put back together. We say it was like what God does with us - takes something old in need of repair and makes it like new again and even better than beforeI hadnt finished this before it sent itself. I can copy and paste or us it better to email?
I did send you a rather lengthy response but forgot to say what breakfast looks like here! Years ago it was mostly bread with cold cuts, white farmers cheese with either sourcream, chives, fresh garlic, sliced radishes and salt and pepper slathered on bread and topped with fresh dill weed....or the fresh farmers cheese with sour cream and then topped with jam. Favorite jams here are black currant, raspberry and plum. Fresh homemade strawberry jam too. Nowadays, its also cereal, muesli. Our house was always more eclectic. We even eat dinner leftovers of any kind, we will also have beans on toast and a proper English breakfast (my mum is English, I am an American and my husband is Polish). My son asked yesterday if I would make scones. I guess its time to learn. First, need to make Kimchi. Plus other son asked if we could do buckwheat pancakes. We are not typical here but our friends live to come to eat here. Love my chili and cornbread, pulled pork or ratatouille. Made Chicken Biryani this week. Was yummy.
How lovely to learn all about your family! A lot of health issues to manage! Thank you for sharing about your faith and your home (and your breakfast). May God bless your work and your home, your family, your village. xx
I see I used Pelligrine instead of Peregrine. I mixed it up with the Pellegrino that I am drinking. How could I?!!!
Haha! That's hilarious! x
How delightful to read about Nancy and her story. God's faithfulness is running through everything she shared. Can we all meet in Poland for some prayer, laughter, fellowship, and food? (I'll have muesli...) xoxo
Brilliant idea! No dill weed for you?
Yes! How much fun we would have!
