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.

  • Hey there.

    I agree, it’s a huge blessing for the opportunity to explore the world and experience cultures other than our own. That freedom is really priceless.

    I’m happy to have found your blog! I’m moving to Korea next month to start a teaching job. I’m really looking forward to it, and I’m happy that I’ve found an up-to-date blog maintained by someone in the same area!
