Well, it finally happened. A traffic accident. Ok, that sounds a little more dramatic than what it really was. Jason was riding his motorcycle behind a nice VW car. A taxi stopped quickly in front of the VW. Jason... Well... He slightly dented the back of the VW. Seriously, barely contacted. Thankfully, the driver of the vehicle was super nice. The cost of the fender bender? $20.00 Yes, here we can negotiate payment right on the spot. Usually, it doesn't go so nicely, especially for foreigners. God is good.

Walls.

The hold things up, keep things out, and keep things in. They separate, divide.

Much of the time we have been here, I have felt surrounded by walls. Some walls were good. Some... not so pleasant. My goal? Learn the difference between good walls and bad walls, fortify the good walls, and keep chipping away at the bad walls.

My children LOVE their grandparents. After all, they have the best grandparents in the world! They love to do sweet things to let the children know they love them and are thinking of them. My mom was asking about ideas of things that can be easily stuck in a small letter sized envelope to send frequent "smiles" to the children without breaking the piggy bank in shipping.  So I started brainstorming... actually, I asked some friends on Facebook for help! Boy, oh, boy! What a great list they helped to compile!

Today's walk was a blessing...


We have been walking in the valley behind our house for a few weeks. It is a large loop... Two or three miles round trip from our house.

I made a terrible mistake yesterday...

It all started out like a typical day. I got up, did my devotion, and got dressed. Unfortunately, as I got dressed I accidently put on the wrong head. I wore my American head. American heads do not do well in this country. No one else is wearing American heads... they are wearing heads from this country. So why is wearing an American head a problem?

Because American heads come with American thinking... and American thinking clashes with the thinking of this country. So yesterday's adventures were not as pleasant and entertaining as they should have been had I put on the right head.
