Today was the last day of the exhibit of world- renown modern impressionistic painter Henrietta Milan at the Museum of Biblical Art in Dallas. All of her paintings are done with knives and inspired mostly inspired by her European travels- many from Claude Monet's gardens. Photos were not allowed in the museum but since we unexpectedly "happened" to meet Mrs. Milan herself and visit with her awhile, we got the ultimate permission to get a family photo with her in front of one of her works.
It was fun to swap travel stories and hear from her son Tal about his growing up on the road in Europe. Mrs. Milan was also a champion gymnast (almost qualified for Olympics) in the 50's and also spent many years coaching top level gymnasts. We love all the incredible people that "happen" to become our friends along the journey.
We actually haven't met a person yet that isn't totally amazing. Some diamonds may dazzle brighter at first glance but others in the rough are just as sparkly after some chipping away and polishing. All are created in the image of God. Every friendship, new and old, is a cherished treasure.
