round and round

Coming back to the states, I’m missing the simplicity of Haitian culture. The kids would play with fruit for balls, cardboard to make little houses and anything that was interesting.

Childlike creativity….we seem to have lost a bit of that these past 40 years. Now it’s pre-school, play dates, having “lessons” and more organized child time.

Talking with others my age about how life has evolved and what might be next. The Jetson’s seemed like a real future and though the cartoon was ahead of it’s time…it’s not how life unfolded.

Now my future hope is not how the world will evolve but for more of my Savior in each day.

…we wait eagerly for our adoption as sons, the redemption of our bodies. For in this hope we were saved. But hope that is seen is no hope at all. Who hopes for what he already has? But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently.
Romans 8:23-25

Sometimes I do want to hurry His arrival…

  1. Patience! Oh, how we are so impatient not only with life but for Our Savior’s return – returning to simplicity may be the first step
    Thank you for the pictures and the reminders!
    Prayers for your day

    I was thinking along these lines just a few days ago. Life in the “Computer Age” was supposed to be so much easier, less stressful, and simpler. If anything, it’s become more noisy, more isolated, and more complicated.

    I don’t know what the short term answer to this cultural harikari might be, but the return of the Lord Jesus would certainly solve the problem for His people.

    Thank you again for another thought-provoking word.

  3. Like the picture, like the scripture from Romans too. I am one for the simple life, a lot easier to cope with, however, thank God for technological advancement which has enable me to know people like you and your work for the lord.
    What ever state we are in, may it be to the glory of God and upliftment of his kingdom on earth. Amen.
