An interesting sort of day…
Nobody was home.
Checked back. Nobody was home.
Went to the daycare. Nobody brought the daughter by.
Went to school. No”bodies” had attended.
Burmese girl & several teachers answered my question of: “Where is everybody?”
They were at the hospital….oh my!
Confusion was quickly clarified.
They were getting there examinations/shots/check-ups.
My third try.
Knocked loudly over the noises of 7 warm bodies.
To the door they came.
We reasoned why.
Is there confusion or clarity?
You never can quite tell.
And then there’s those significant & familiar sighs.
Is it important to explain this & that or do you let it slide?
When it’s 10 minutes to describe-you think a bit first before you try.
I like this family. They’re reminding me of times past and prepping me for times in my future.
They show me my land. While I seek to know there’s.
I like this family. They’re beautiful, fun, and eager.
They love to learn. I think they’re quite humble.
Have you heard of ‘Jesus School’?
I have. That’s where they go. She told me so.
I chuckled a bit….’Jesus School’. That is how she has translated church.
I think it’s a great reminder. We are learning from Jesus.
Not the way of ‘man’…but the way of ‘Jesus’.
