It’s Monday again. It just keeps on coming back. heavy sigh I took the good advice given here and stayed home Friday night and Saturday. Having the house to myself was simply delicious! Thank you for your input.
Anyone watch the Giants/Packers game yesterday? I really didn’t anticipate this win but was so impressed with their warrior mentality. Can you say cold? We’ll see in two weeks if David can slay Goliath. (They lived up to their team name, eh?)
In church yesterday, we had a missionary couple, Seoth and Syna Lao, speak. They are from Cambodia and lived through the Killing Fields of the Khmer Rouge government. Their story of loss and redemption touched me very deeply. I take my freedoms for granted. This couple thanks God daily for theirs.
After being educated in the United States, he as a pastor and she as a nurse, they returned to Cambodia to serve their God and their people. Their families couldn’t believe they would willingly return! However, this is their calling and they are true to it.
When the service was over and I had visited with many, I saw Syna chatting with a couple of church members. I went up to her, looked at her beautifully radiant face, and asked if I could hug her. She smiled and told me I could. The tears that didn’t fall during the service threatened to storm out of my eyes. I told her that I felt physical pain from her story. Truth be told, I feel shame, too. Shame for taking so much for granted and for not speaking up more often about my faith.
Manic Monday questions seem so lame after thinking about this couple again. However, for your enjoyment:
If you had to be named after one of the 50 states, which would it be? Hmmm…I think it would have to be either Jersey or Montana. I like to be different.
Where do you go for advice? The Bible, friends and my mom and sis.
What is the sickest you’ve ever been? When The Girl was less than ten years old, I caught a flu from her which knocked me off my feet for days. I never want to feel that way again.
Talk to me. g
