Yesterday was an....um..... interesting day.
Hubby only had half a day of work. So we were getting some stuff done in the afternoon. Well, actually I was totally lost in a book called "Father to the Fatherless The Charles Mulli Story" by Paul.H.Boge. A man who started Mully Children's Family Orphanage in Kenya. Wow, what an amazing book. Truly, I couldn't put it down. Honestly I didn't really try that hard. We all ate, the dishes got done, and even a load of laundry got put in. That sounds like a successful day to me.
Anyways, we were taking some documents to be photocopied. Somehow, these documents slipped out and were lost in the parking lot, a large parking lot. These are the kind of documents that could do a lot of damage if fallen into the wrong hands. They were no where to be seen. By grace, I had a strong assurance that we would get them back. We went out for a family bike ride in the evening, trying hard to not be stressed and upset. Wouldn't you know it, when we returned there was a message waiting that they had been found and we could go and pick them up.
That is one of those moments that you know that you know that you know that Dad is watching out for you, "he has your back" as the saying goes. We are feeling so thank-ful.
Another story for our books. You know, that book that you read when you feel things are falling down around you and you have no idea how it is going to work out. Well, maybe you don't ever feel that way, but I sure do, and it is so so so so good to
And, it felt so good to have those documents back in my pockets again!
Here is a shot from the Canada Day fireworks show. It was a pretty great show for our small city. The kids asked if we could have our own fireworks show next year to help Hong Kong celebrate Canada Day!
