I realized in my morning devotion time, that last night was a night of many sounds for me.
At various times , while attempting to sleep, I heard:
Voices chanting to a rhythmic beat and accompanying drumbeats........ men's voices shouting......a woman's screech..............power surges..... the hum of the fan.......a cat fight....dogs crying and barking and then barking some more...... my loud gasp when I ran into a very large unidentified bug of some sort in the bathroom.... my expletive as I hit my foot on the ladder climbing to my upper bunk......a persistent singing rooster when the dawn was coming up......oh yes! I almost forgot...... mosquitoes buzzing in my ears.
Now if I woke up in the States, after a night such as this, there is no doubt I would COMPLAIN and groan.
But I realized as I am sitting here that God's promises ARE true for those who believe, name
".I have learned to be content with whatever I have. I know how to live on almost nothing or with everything. II have learned the secret of of living in every situation, whether it be with a full stomach or empty, with plenty or little. For I can do everything through Christ Who gives me strength....Phil:4"
For as I sit here, even after the night of sleep I experienced last night, I am NOT tired, or worn out. II am excited, and refreshed (sweating, but refreshed), and excited to be starting another day in Haiti.
This morning I learned the true meaning of "This s the day that the LORD ahs made, let us REJOICE and be glad in it! Judy
