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!
