Another typical day. . .

I had to laugh at Scott's facebook post this morning.

"Took one of the Pajero's in for repair this morning with the parts needed. Will it be done today as promised? The parts for the second Pajero are to arrive today by plane from South Africa. Will they arrive? Will the second car be fixed tomorrow? More suspense than your daily Soap Opera, but just another typical day here in Mozambique."

Ah, another typical day. More than that, though, is that God is using it to teach me every day to relax and go with the flow. Something that can be quite a challenge to me. I've always been a highly-structured fairly organized person, who used to live by my watch. Now, I don't even wear one. What's really important in life has also changed.

One thing that always puts things into prospective is when I see a man, like the one in this photo, pushing his goods on a cart and I'm reminded how blessed I am to have a car to fix.

Today I want to be thankful for His blessings and be aware of how I can be a blessing to those around me.
