  It is now Thanksgiving morning in Uganda!!  Do you ever wonder why we have to learn life's lessons the hard way?  Last night when we went to bed in my heart I was praising God and thankful for our many blessings and experiences he has given us.  This morning -a different story!!! Every day we have varying combinations of water-hot water-power-internet.  This morning-no power! I was going to blog about the beautiful people and places we have enjoyed this week. Instead I am on my last minutes of battery power. Its a foggy moist dark morning and we just packed for a 3 day jaunt in the darkness of our room. Chosing by feel among our clothes that have a distict aroma of Uganda and febreeze !!! Then I started wondering what sort of grandparents and parents leave their family behind to head out on unknown crazy adventure. We will be enjoying Thanks giving dinner eating 
payday candy bars bouncing along on the worst road in Uganda!
   But always gently our gracious God draws our hearts back to Him! He reminds that He is all in all! He is our peace, our joy, our righteousness, and all we need wherever we are.
   "Worthy are you,our Lord and God to receive Glory and honor and power,
   for you created all things,and by your will they existed and were created."  Rev. 4:11

  "Enter his gates with Thanksgiving , and his courts with praise!
  Give thanks to HIM, bless HIS name! For the Lord is good;
  his steadfast love endures forever, and his faithfulness to all 
  generations." Psalms 100:4-5

So let rejoice in Him and his goodness to the children of man!!
