While away, to that super cool country where only super cool people go, God revealed many things to me. For instance, every morning the team would meet in the Prayer Garden. For prayer.
Kim Auntie would pray like this:
“Lord, your word says in John 9, that you healed the blind man saying, Go and wash in the Pool of Siloam. And the man went forth, telling others of the man who had healed him. We pray that you would help give us eyes to see, too.”
I would pray like this:
“Lord, you know how in the movie Overboard, the Goldie Hawn character gets her memory back and suddenly she can see how Kurt Russell had made her a wife and mother and she’s all like, ‘why did you do that, you’re that sweaty carpenter that hates me’, and she’s confused but then they get together. Could you open our eyes to see, too?”
The contrast is striking. Yeah, I can SEE now. Before going to India, I had no idea Kim was such a show-off.
