A friend and classmate who lives in South Africa wrote to me today and I would like to share a portion of her email with you. She is a lady of COURAGE.
Had another, disastrous encounter with the local baboons today much to my dismay. Somehow one got in and I found it in the utility room eating my veggies etc, so I locked it in and called security. Took them a while to get here but finally got the darn thing out. What a horrendous mess it made: poop and orange juice everywhere, garbage broken open, drawers and oven door open, things eaten and two walls covered in blood! Still don't know how it got in but seems to be thru a tiny space in my barred window. This is very strange as it was huge and my cats are tiny. Sooooo, my Sunday layin became a scrubbing and disinfecting session, NOT what I had planned. We also dumped Arabic perfume on the baboon in the hope it will be driven out or killed by the rest of the troop. Believe me, there is an interesting smell in my house despite all the scrubbing.
TREASURES OF WISDOM
ON TALKING WITH GOD
The COURAGE to pray for someone is a sign
that you have faith that God is able.
Hear my cry, O God;
listen to my prayer.
From the ends of the earth
I call to you,
I call as my heart grows faint;
lead me to the rock
that is higher than I.
