Cross Roads #sundaydevotion

 

Life’s road  uneven

filled with pain

I’ve know the sting

of sin’s dark reign

*

the fork it beckoned

from afar

succumbed to flesh

I see the scars

*

His light it shines

in darkest place

removes the stain

no one can trace

*

I gladly trudge

this burden bear

to heaven’s cross road

my savior’s there!

 

 

“A highway will be there, a roadway, And it will be called the Highway of Holiness. The unclean will not travel on it, But it will be for him who walks that way, And fools will not wander on it.”

Isaiah 35:8

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.”

Matthew 11:28

 “And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

Matthew 28:20

Life’s Road is filled with rocks and uneven spots. Some days we have little strength to crawl. Though this life is tough, Jesus promises that He is there to walk over the toughest terrain  (carrying us if need be).

Traffic #children #atozchallenge #Uganda

 

 

From the Iron Donkey I watch

a normal afternoon in Gulu

two boys

four eyes

 traffic

people, animals, motorcycles

*iron donkeys, cars and trucks

 

 

 

The Iron Donkey is a guest house where we stay in Gulu. The iron donkey is also what Westerners consider a bicycle.

 

 

 

Shading #atozchallenge #children

 

give me a crayon

a paper of my own

leave me to create

a space all alone

a quiet, a calm

 a world you can’t touch

when I’m done I’m so proud

happiness doesn’t take much

huts and livestock

trees in the breeze clap their hands

children coloring

It is no surprise that Ugandan children love crafts. Coloring or as Ugandans call it Shading can quiet the loudest group of children. Intent are they to create with color.

Education #children #atozchallenge

 

 

one class under a mango tree

one hundred children, sheep and dogs

puppets and white board magic

children eager to learn

will I ever speak your language?

the child takes my hand

“we already do”

Sometimes we teach under trees other times in a building or porch. Children are always attentive and willing to learn. They never take education for granted and know it is a key to a better future. The older children are willing and able helpers!!
