We invited our children to create their own post to share with all of you. Yesterday, Emma (our youngest at 12 years old) took us up on the offer, and this is the post she has created. The subject may not seem very “seasonal,” but it is something that is really on her heart right now as she faces some tough situations. Hopefully her writing will give you a glimpse into the life of an ex-pat kid. And thankfully, Emma is learning what we all need to remember – we have a Wonderful Savior, Emmanuel “God with us,” to whom we will never have to say good-bye.
Towards the beginning of August, our family was involved in a conference in Cha-am, which is south of Bangkok.
Who are they? They are teachers who live in Myanmar, but have come to Thailand to live at a school for a month during the hottest season of the year.
Over the course of the last 8 months, I’ve been counting steps. Not as a law which cannot be broken, but as a challenge to be met. I started small, and have moved my way up to meeting the goal set for me by my phone. Yes, I let my phone set a goal for me. (The phone is easier on me than I would have been on myself.)
