a good day
by Kayla Raymond
Today was a good day.
We made real American bacon for breakfast and put on our best dress for church. We worshiped an amazing God and prayed in another language. For lunch we dined on Haitian food at my friend Gerard’s house with his family. He treated us with an ice cold Coca-Cola.
I tried to put the boys down for a nap afterwards, but nap time turned into a game of hide-and-seek and hide-and-seek turned into swimming in the ocean. After floating and playing, we snacked on peanuts and watched the waves in the ocean.
At 5:00 Webert’s soccer team played in a championship soccer match and I enjoyed the view of a beautiful rainbow over the mountains as I played with the village kids.
To end the day, God spoke to me as I meditated on Matthew 12:18….
“Here is my servant (you and I) whom I have chose,
the one I love, in whom I delight (He truly delights in us);
I will put my Spirit on him (He dwells within us, making us His temple),
and he will proclaim justice to the nations (we can bring hope to the world).”
Hope you too had a blessed day.
Love from Haiti.
Have I told you how much I LOVE your blog? Well, I love it. A lot. Thank you for connecting nations.
What a great day (even without nap time)! Thanks for sharing the joy of the day with us.
Kayla- you are a beautiful woman with a great heart. Thank you for blogging I always look forward to reading it and being touched.
