Pictures from this year’s Eid Al-Adha - commemorating my most beloved account from the Old Testament/Qur’an; Abraham’s great faith and obedience in his willingness to sacrifice his son and Allah’s intervention in providing the ram. I have to say I have some holy envy for how Muslims celebrate and remember this event. Masha’allah. 

Our chief want is someone who will inspire us to be what we know we could be.

Took a Sunday drive up to the top of a mountain ridge. Here are a couple pictures from a hike off the side of the road. Highlight of the day? Wading through a grassy marsh for an hour to watch a bull moose feeding by a lake. Oh, if I only had a better lens… There would have been some class A shots.

Al-hamdulillah

Today I hit the jackpot. I found a killer Arab market about 40 miles from my apartment. Not a Pakistani market. Not an Indian market. 100% Arab - with halal butcher shop (carrying goat!), teas, endless spices, bakhoor, *fresh* khubz, and, wonder of wonders, jameed. How in the name of all that is good did I not know about this place before? Plus there’s a legit little mat3am in back. I had lunch with a couple guys I met from Dubai and then talked to a Jordanian family from Irbid where I used to go up to church every week. Best day I’ve had in quite a while.
