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.
It is the only thing hungrier than my teenage son.
It can gobble up food, time, and money faster than you can call 911!
And it can bring a grown woman to tears.
It's... the pantry!
Last week, our family dealt with something we had not yet experienced in our new country. It was a week long puja (worship) service that lasted from sunrise until late at night everyday at our neighbor’s house. They had two huge loud speakers that blasted music, chanting, pagan worship, bells, horns blowing, and more.
What started out as a week of severe auditory torture and spiritual attack, ended up much different than I ever expected. I posted on Facebook as the week progressed. Watch the transformation, and praise God for His goodness. All by His grace.
As I am preparing for the new school year to start, it’s also time to review and reassign chores to the children. I have found that dividing the chores into morning, evening, and as needed, it works much better for our family.
