An Appreciated Love Letter
It is official: There are now Girl Scout Thin Mint Cookies in Africa...in my refrigerator, on my shelves, and in my belly. I am set for quite some time! Thank you, thank you, thank you, Audrey.
Anyway, back to Pasca. I wrote in the front of her Love Letter from God a sweet note about how I appreciated her friendship and I looked forward to watching her draw closer to God day by day. I dated it, and I headed over to where she works to give it to her.
She is a cook for an oil and petroleum company here, so I interrupted her liver and kidney (Ugh!) cooking to present her with this precious gift.
When she saw it, she kissed it, and said over and over how she couldn't believe it!
It really made my day (and hers).
She gets to work every morning at 6am to cook breakfast for all the workers, and she doesn't leave until late in the evening when all the dinner dishes are clean. We both know she is busy, but we are determined to set some time aside to study the Story together.
I wish you all could meet her. She is such a blessing, and you would have loved to see how excited she got over receiving her very own (readable) Love Letter from God.
The Word is a precious thing!
