Mixed feelings this morning. Happy to have had some great folks from California visit us this week. I was actually a bit apprehensive about their visit. I’m not the easiest person to hang out with and to get to know, but all seemed to go well. Plus our friend Denny is around for a few days (terribly upset that Susan didn’t make it.)
I have those nice good mushy type feelings. Yet at the same time I’m reminded of the unnecessary suffering going on around me.
Children dying. Children going hungry. Children being sexually assaulted (this one seriously challenges my pacifist ways.)
Not so mushy in the feelings department.
I thank God that he has us here in Kenya at this time. A time when we can, with the help of our friends, save children, feed children, and rescue children.
Up and down, that’s my emotions this morning. Which I’m o.k. with, because that’s what life is; up and down.
