Today I ate breakfast with Jose and Terry in the hotel cafeteria. Terry showed me how to use chopsticks. I had previously avoided using chopsticks because I thought that it was too hard to learn. Well…it is hard. Still, I managed to eat a small plate of rice before exiting to write this blog. During the process of eating the rice my hand began to cramp. I also had to analyze and adjust how I was approaching my task. By the end of the experience I had created my own technique for using chopsticks and was extremely proud of myself for trying something new. Humbly, I admit I still have much more to learn; that’s fine with me.
This experience is directly correlated to my Christian walk…..
I thank God for keeping me, for loving me, and for teaching me. Thank you God for your love through the process of life.
