Today was a day of extremes! I began the day tired from the last 3. My teenage neighbor and I have been baking cookies for 3 days for our neighbors. It was fun, but I woke this morning tired and with a gunky throat and cough. Yuck!
I got up and drove to say good bye to one of our team's families. They are moving back to America and I feel like I had to say good-bye to family. How can you be so sad as such a wonderful time of year. I am excited to see what God has for them, yet sad that it is our loss.
I had to go to the Apple "store" to get my iPod fixed (too much playing games, I wore out the click wheel!). As I was walking in the mall, the song, "Falis Navedad" was playing. . . in a POLISH MALL! THEN I heard "Walking in a Winter Wonderland", except that the words were "Walking in Women's Underwear". As I was listening to the lyrics, I was sadden. It was all about how these men loved to wear women's clothing. I am sure that the Poles have NO IDEA what was being sung and only recognized the tune. It was a bit disturbing.
I then went to our Bible book store to get a Polish Bible and talk to the owner. We talked about the fact that I am honored to have been asked to the second day of Christmas by my neighbors. Wow, I did not realized how important it was. . .
I got to my Polish class and went over test the test I took the other week. The other test I took last week, did not go well. This one looked good. The only problem was that the "case" that I did not think I knew, was the only case that I got correct the whole time!
I am very happy that I am here during this season, yet I miss all of my family and friends and wish that Mr. Scott would get his act put together and get that transporter up and running!
Beam me up Scotty!
