Food and Style with an African Twist

Greater Love

Another weekend and as usual I am showing my church outfit.  I am smiling in the photos but my heart is heavy.  My heart is heavy for my people, my land, my beloved Sierra Leone.  The things that I have been hearing in the news of the deadly Ebola virus is very discouraging, especially when I heard that it had claimed the life of the doctor who was leading the fight against the disease, and two American missionaries were also fighting for their lives. When I heard it, the first thing that came to my mind was John 15:13 "Greater love had no man than this, that a man would lay down his life for his friends".  As a doctor, Dr, Sheik Umarr Khan was aware of the dangers associated with the disease and that there isn't a cure but he chose to help out and to save lives.

Friends, please join me to say a prayer for Sierra Leone and West Africa. It looks bleak at the moment but miraculous things are still happening around the world and no prayer is too small.

Thank you for coming over and reading my blog.  Leave a comment and I will come and check out your blog too.

  6. There is so much misfortune in this world of ours, dear Elsie; sometimes it's hard not to be overwhelmed by sadness...or to feel guilty about enjoying the pleasure of "trivial" things like a pretty outfit. But I'm glad you were able to find a small moment of happiness in sharing your "Sunday best!!" The collar of this dress reminds me so much of a classic Jackie Kennedy look; and the contrasting orange clutch adds even more interest to the stripes and back-button detail. But it's those ivory t-strap shoes that are the piece de resistance for me!! XOXO

  15. Your church outfit is lovely and shows off your gorgeous legs! It's heartbreaking to hear the news of the Ebola virus and although I am not a believer, the people of Sierra Leone and those who are suffering due to the virus are in my thoughts constantly.

  16. i read in the newspaper about - and i get in a wrath. millions of $/€ go in developing weapons, useless wellness pharmaceutics and other "stuff" to make more money with consumerism. people in africa die? there is no money in. So why do research about it? why a drug develop that nobody can pay?
    I feel sick.
    sorry for the rant.
    first i came here for your chic looks - and you look very chic in your maritime dress! love the buttons down the back!
    xx
