It’s the Little Things in Life
It was what I’d call a bitter cold day — cold for a tropical girl like me, but something happened today that had never happened to me before in the U.S. I’ve been taking these things for granted. I was on the way to work when I ran into a co-worker. I never saw co-workers until I was already at work in the U.S. We got into a discussion about religion. She has invited me to her church. It’s primarily Korean, but there is a multicultural study group. I really want to go, especially since the church is close to my home.
Then I started thinking about how fortunate we are to be able to speak freely about our religion on the street. I had been reading about the people in North Korea and how they are not allowed to have ANY religion. They can only honor the ruler of their country. I feel so fortunate to be able to travel outside of my country. Some people are prohibited from doing this and living and working abroad is also a tremendous blessing. It’s an awesome experience to become immersed in another culture.
