The City No Longer Forsaken

"They will be called the Holy People, the Redeemed of the LORD; and you will be called Sought After, the City No Longer Deserted." ~Isaiah 62:12

Entertaining Short People

Some missionaries that I worked with in Japan live about two doors down from me in the temporary missionary apartments. Jessica (their six year old daughter) has been knocking on my door fairly frequently. I've been trying to find ways to entertain her when I don't have so many kid type things around the house.

She came into my apartment today after church and wanted to know what we were going to do. She wanted to play a computer game on my computer, but I really don't want to get into the relationship with kids where they're coming over to play on my computer, and I told her 'no'. And she immediately replied, "Well, what are we going to do? You're bored and don't have anything to do right now, right?" Ah, the honesty of children. It really is time to start working again. I just got settled back in temporary housing again after some visits with friends, a trip to IHOP (prayer, not pancakes), and a good friend's wedding. So, now I have the time to get settled in at least some kind of temporary job as well. I'm really looking forward to that!

Anyway, for now I just wanted to share"musical genius" with you of my friend Jessica.
She says: Hello, everyone! I have been playing the guitar two songs. Bye!

I'm pretty sure I recognized that song. Tell Jessica it was wonderful and give her a big hug from me!

OH So fun!!! You have a portage! Enjoy the little moments! Its so amazing to me to see kids singing Christian songs like that... I know it should not be... but It fills my heart with Joy to see that out of all the songs in the world she would pick one to glorify Gods name! Worthy is HIS name indeed.
Love ya
