Evening Prayer:Jesus, calm me with a fresh realization of the security I have in You. Amen.
Good Morning All – German leaves on the ferry this morning to head to San Pedro Sula for his interview with Princess Cruises. This has been three years in the waiting. First he needed to finish school, learn English!!, then test for all his cruise ship certificates then wait until he was 21. Well he completed all of that and tested/interviewed here and passed with flying colors so now he is having his last interview. if he passes then he will go to immigration and get his paperwork. He turns 21 in January. We have shared the Lord with him in word and action for 4.5 yrs. God’s word doesn’t go out void (or something like that)…He came over yesterday to chat and get his finals stuff from us and as we were talking about the last years and how proud we are of him he was mentioning helping others etc. so I told him that when the time comes for him he needs to realize it and help someone else that is less fortunate and realize it is all from the LORD and PRAISE HIM for the ability. Keep him in your prayers and I will keep you posted as to how he does. we should know by Monday. Thanks for reading =)
But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
2 Corinthians 12:9 ESV
Morning Prayer:Spirit of God, enthrone my heart anew. Steady my concerns. Lamplight my struggles with Your clear counsel. Amen.
Evening Prayer:Sleep-Giver, rests flickers within me. Worries scamper about my room like mice in a pantry. Footfalls of fear stomp down the halls of my mind. And then I remember your Sheltering love. Amen.
You might not be able to change the entire world, but at least you can change a small part of it, for someone.
They say that one of the most common reasons we procrastinate is because we see the challenge before us as overwhelming, and that a good way to counter that is to break the big challenge down into smaller pieces and then take those one at a time–like one person at a time. And to that one person it can make a world of difference.
Yeah, lusbin graduated. We are really proud of her. Their dinner choice was of course pizza at Bojangles. So us along with many others celebrated at Bojangles. During dinner they ask if we could stay for fireworks because they had never seen them there. Well of course we have to say yes. So….we waited two more hours for the fireworks with literally three thousand (possibly more) other Hondurans for the fireworks. It was a nice display and we tried to look at it through their eyes since Ronnie and I have seen fireworks many times. I am not going to say it wasn’t frightening at times. Ronnie and I aren’t big on huge crowds at night in super tight areas =). Especially here. Praise God all went well and it was a blessed unexpected night. AND since they were all Spanish speakers I got to practice my Spanish all night !!!
