Sometimes I forget

Sometimes I forget that I live in a foreign country. After living here 2 years it feels very normal living in SA. But sometimes there are gentle reminders....like Tuesday night our electricity went out 8x in 2 hours, and today I got an email telling us that in the Hillcrest area for the next 4 days the electricity WILL go out at 6am, 8am, 12pm, 2:30pm, 6pm and 8:30pm. Hmm. Thanks for the warning! I love the verse in Hebrews 11:16 that says "But as it is, they desire a better country, that is, a heavenly one. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God, for he has prepared for them a city." In heaven the lights will never ever go out cause Christ is the lamp!

Our power went out Sunday night and everyone was freeking out, except for us. So Anton ended up going to the neigbours with flashlights and candles :-) The funny thing was that we forgot that the oven will still work, becuase in our mindset, if the power is out everything is out. Was so funny
