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

Loving God in the Moment
Monday, September 11, 2006
I live in a place that doesn't necessarily like the US of A. Some people are very fond of us, others can't stand us. They are not shy about voicing their opinions. I know that some of you will be surprised about this, but it only comes up when they ask, "Wo kommen Sie?" Where do you come from? When I say, "Ich komme auf den USA." I hear one way or the other. Then, when I announce I am from Texas! WHEW!!!!!
I have lived an entire September 11 with not one person talking about it. I on the other hand, stopped when I dated my Hausaufgabe (homework) today. Slipping that pen over my right hand side of the paper, crafting the September 11 in my best handwriting, stopping and praying for those that still slept in my home country; I sighed.
I have a class of 7 Japanese, 1 Tunisian, 1 Italian, 1 Columbian and me! It was interesting.
September 11 holds many memories. A dear friend lost her baby around that time, several hardships occurred with other loved ones.
Today, another sad remembrance was added - Hearing from a friend from my past (she is my youngest son's god mama!) I learned that her ex-husband had committed suicide in June.
The news affected me in an interesting way. I did not flinch, I just felt a weight in my heart. He had been angry with God for years. I am sad that he choose to take this route.
Aligning this information with September 11?????
News about death on September 11 - leaves one numb.
Knowing that God is in control - allows one to praise Him in the midst of the assault.
Your mutating missionary.
