Many Differences

There are many differences in our life here as opposed to our life in the USA. People we encounter have had many different experiences in their lives in comparison to ours. We have a Christian woman who helps us in our home. I was sharing with her that it doesn’t feel like Christmas to me because it’s hot, tropical weather. She said, “It gets very cold at night, you even need to use a blanket.” As I sat back to think about her comment, it hit me how different my view is compared to hers. Our daily temperatures are about 85 with high humidity and in the night 65, we only use a sheet. I also placed a hand towel in the bathroom to use that has snowflakes on it. She asked me why the stars were shaped that way. It’s difficult to explain snow to someone who has never experienced it.

    Just because it’s difficult doesn’t mean we stop trying. I am thankful for the myriad of things God is showing you. One is how different we are in different parts of the world. T he other is how much the same we are – as we all need Jesus.

    I’m glad you took a towel with you that reminds you of the winter season you experienced / will experience again back home. Every time you use the towel remember there’s someone here in spring, summer, autumn & winter who loves you very much! Mom
