Say "YES!" to God's call.
When He calls, He always enables.

Length of Days

The days here are soo much longer than days in real life. This morning was years ago. This morning Rosie was still telling me no and resisting every attempt of mine to touch her....tonight she came and sat on my lap and snuggled beside me while playing the didj. In between we took a taxi (just our family) to a huge bookstore and ate at Kentucky Fried Chicken (where we ate fish!) and played Uno (where we spoke numbers and colors in English) went swimming (where the kids played marco polo with a blind 11 yr old being adopted by a family from Indiana) and ate dinner on a riverboat on the Pearl River.
In the midst of this we talked about home schooling (D does not like school or reading so was not at all opposed), found some wonderful books (biographies of Lincoln, Mother Theresa, Henry Ford, Albert Einstein etc.and Little Red Riding Hood, The Ugly Duckling, The Three Little Pigs, etc. all written in English and Chinese and Rosie's favorite Pleasant Goat stories) , talked about violin lessons (D wants them , we watched Karate Kid last night)and talked about limiting their phone calls to connections here in China. Exhausting. C
