thankful for . . .




I'm thankful for . . .

// when the electricity unexpectedly turns on.
// the fact that I can't do it, but He can.
// that there's a possibility I could ride a camel this weekend.
// visits from the neighbor girls.
// movies on Saturdays. 
// our (Nehemiah, Evangeline, and I) new tradition of sleeping on the roof on Friday nights.
// that we, after cooking over a coal fire for a month, now have a stove! 
// majestic African sunsets (seems to be all I take pics of . . . sorry). 
// family and friends back at home who just sent packages.
// the fact that I have people back at home praying and thinking about me. I'm so blessed. 
// all the encouraging messages, comments and emails I've gotten lately.
// phone calls across the world with my friend Lauren. 
// Monopoly games with Nehemiah and Evangeline. 
// tea. 
// Chadian cookies. yum.
// being able to pray for all my friends back at home who are starting school or heading off to college.
// listening to new music, it took all night to download four songs. But still worth it. 
// finding out that there's no such thing as awkward silence in Chad. (whew, bc half the time I don't know what to say) 
// walks to the ducan (small shop down our street) to get muppa (bread). 
// surprise visits from beautiful and strange birds. 
// clean sheets, dried and smelling fresh from the sun. 
// the stars, that are so much closer and brighter here.

    Love it. :) And sleeping on the roof sounds uh-mazingingly fun and something I could so see myself doing....if our roof was flat. :)
