What I Learned In October (2018 Edition)
Today, it is Thanksgiving here in West Africa. It is a national holiday usually celebrated by going to church for a time of thanksgiving. Maybe later the family will gather for a meal together but nothing like we do in America. The focus is on being thankful. So I thought I would take a minute to list a few things that I am thankful for…
- My husband! He is my best friend. Even though I miss my kids, I am enjoying this empty nest season.
- That my husband was able to make it safely back to base yesterday after something went wrong on his airplane.
- That my student population is only increasing by 2 instead of 7 in January.
- W and Big D are doing well at their colleges and are in a good place with life.
- All the things I learned this month as I went though a New Testament Survey class online.
Though some tongues just love the taste of gossip, those who follow Jesus have better uses for language than that. Don’t talk dirty or silly. That kind of talk doesn’t fit our style. Thanksgiving is our dialect.
