So very glad to be back at work after a lovely three weeks of vacation. I joined my husband in Seoul, South Korea for two weeks then came back to Bloomington for a few days and spent the last weekend with all the kids at my daughter’s house in Cincinnati.
On the very first day of vacation I got some not-so-amazing chicken salad in the Detroit airport. Thankfully I ate it on the plane, so the food poisoning didn’t strike until a few hours after I landed in Seoul. Then again, forty-eight hours later, it struck for real. Carl’s Korean students got me to Dr. Yoo, a wonderful English-speaking doctor who ever so kindly shepherded me through an entirely different and far less complicated healthcare system. I bounced right back and had a great time roaming a foreign city by myself and eating amazing food. I went to parks and museums and markets and a martyr’s shrine. I read lots of books, took lots of naps, knitted, quilted, gardened and played with my dogs. I tried (and failed!) not to read the news, so I had to pray and journal and breathe deeply more than should be required on vacation but to a good end all the same.
This week’s passage is Acts 17:16-34, should you care to read ahead. Bible Chat will meet on Thursday at its regularly scheduled time. I’ll be away from the office this afternoon and tomorrow afternoon (Tuesday & Wednesday) to attend services for Vaughn Delong. My heart just aches for Nate and Nick and Julia as they tell their daddy good-bye. What comfort they will have in being so well fathered by a man who loved and served the Lord as Vaughn did. I look forward to seeing you on Sunday morning.
~ peace & prayers,
We had a wonderful evening and dinner with her family at their home in Seoul. Sweet!
