Weather, Praise and Worship

We've been here almost 9 weeks now!

And today was cold!

Okay, give me a chance to explain.

It has been raining off and on for the last couple of days, and there has been very little sunshine. So the breeze seems cool coming off the wet foliage. And last evening, I put on my sweater that I brought with me, for the first time. It was chilly outside. Today, I wore extra clothes and even put on socks and shoes, rather than my sandals - they're broke any way. I've been wearing them almost every day since we got here, and now they are broken. But, they are getting fixed! And the sheet that's been covering us at night, just didn't cut it last night. We had the bedspread on too, all night. We aren't wearing 'fall type' coats, like some of the others yet, but we seem to be climatizing.

Today, we performed songs that we wrote based on Psalm 100. We were given a bit of time to be creative to write and perform the songs over the last 24 hrs. The Staff even invited some producers in to hear what we had come up with. It was quite the day. Lots of fun and very different from any of the other weeks. We all did very well, and maybe we might see our songs (or some of them) produced!!! It was great way to learn more about praising and worshiping our King! It is nice to have a 'light' topic this week, as last week we were going through the work of the Holy Spirit! Don't get me wrong - last week was great, but you might say that it was a heavier topic!
