God does not send us into the dangerous and exacting life of faith because we are qualified; He chooses in order to qualify us for what he wants us to be or do." Eugene Peterson
Thanks for visiting,
After I get all of the mutating missionary blogs from the past re-posted here, I will continue writing fresh ones. Enjoy the review...

Loving God in the Moment

Germany won. This is worth a two in one day post.
I am caught in the excitement of it all. I didn't see the game - don't own a TV. Didn't hear the game on the radio - haven't paid the radio tax. I simply went to the grocery store after the game was over. The spirit of the town was delightful. The honking, the Black/Red/Yellow everywhere, the flags. It was a joy to see this country celebrate.
Many of the older friends that I have met have commented on the fact that this is the first time there has been an all over country pride since the war. It is a good thing to celebrate. A healthy thing. I am glad they won.
It has been interesting to go to school in the larger town north of here. The game excitement is palpable at all times there. I have been on the Gleis waiting for my train on several occasions after a game. It has been delightful to watch the old and young alike join in the festivities.
I must go, there is a group of cars below driving through my dorf - honking and shouting Berlin, Berlin, Berlin - and singing Deutschland, Deutschland...
I head out to my balcony to watch below!

A little about me
I am in the world almost every day. Okay, daily.
