I'd say that's about as safe as anything you can do that doesn't
involve off-site replication.  Simply having metadata and journal on
different physical drives means that a single drive failure can't take out
your db.  Mirroring gives you an extra layer of protection on top of
that.

Just make sure to do a recovery practice run every now and then so you don't
find out that you misconfigured your server and the journal was actually going
to the wrong place the whole time.  That's a surprisingly common
story.
