Letters from 1810
Lords & Ladies of We Make History,
Our 9th annual Pride & Prejudice
Ball has come and gone but lives on in the warm affections which
ignite our hearts as we ponder favourite memories, fine moments
and smiling faces from this Saturday past.
Grace, elegance and all the
attributes of gentility reigned supreme as charming ladies
and gallant gentlemen gathered from all parts of the realm.
Indeed Cottonwood, Camp Verde, Prescott, Phoenix, Scottsdale,
Cave Creek, Paradise Valley, Tempe, Mesa, Chandler, Gilbert,
Glendale, Peoria, Sun City, Litchfield Park, Goodyear, Laveen,
Buckeye, Tonopah, Maricopa, Tucson and Sierra Vista were all
ably represented, each by their own local aristocracy!
Pride & Prejudice
Ball always holds a certain quality of wonder. Is it the
delightful dances, some slow and elegant, others quick and
lively? Is it the beautiful ladies moving elegantly about the
floor in high waisted gowns of silk with softly flowing trains?
Is it simply the radiant smiles which light the room like so
many bright and glowing candles?
Indeed, all of the above and much
more! Has not our God been kind and gracious to us all? Surely,
We do hope to see many of you again
soon at our 8th annual
Heritage Festival (Nov. 20 & 21) or at our 10th annual
Christmas Ball (Nov. 27) where the dances will be very
lively, the caroling beautiful and the WMH family will celebrate
"the most wonderful time of the year" and the Birth of our
Saviour in true Christmas Splendour!
your servant in a noble cause
and blessed to be so.
PS We do so enjoy and appreciate notes from our
friends who have attended the Pride & Prejudice Ball who write
with thanks, fond memories and such. Please do send them along!
Photos, portraits and works of art have been
posted and may be viewed above. It is an excellent collection
which will bring smiles to many. :o)
Encouraging Words in Appreciation of the
It has been well acknowledged by persons of
discernment throughout history that of all the visible creation,
God has blessed none with so much beauty as he has woman. This
alone would be cause enough for great admiration, yet when woman
adds to physical beauty such treasures as the beauty of good
character; nobility, grace, generosity, affability, and
discretion, along with intelligence, taste, wit and a sense of
style, then she is a higher work of art indeed.
It is no hidden thing that women have great
influence over men. A low woman may be able to reduce a low man
to a level almost inhuman. But a true lady has the ability to
lift, inspire and ennoble a good man toward chivalry,
gentlemanly ideals and greatness itself.
Ladies, do polish your physical beauty and
allow it to shine, recognizing that your attire does matter, yet
take even greater heed to the development of those inner
qualities which will bring depth to beauty's luster. When you
have done this you will discover great power in making use of
all to inspire the good men around you to higher levels of their
Your fond admirer,
