The French send each other New Year cards and avoid Christmas cards celebrating the nativity. You have the whole January month to send a New Year card to your beloved! However I gave our delightful neighbour a Christmas card and she returned the favour two days later.Last year, the Lord blessed us plentifully and I am so grateful for all our blessings. We have made new English and French friends. Belonging to a joyful chaplaincy where Christ is glorified warms my heart. Our English friends and our family came to visit us and we both went to England to visit them too.
It does not mean that at times, trouble doesn't knock at our door but when it does, we know that our Saviour is in charge and we give him our burdens whether spiritual or physical. Though I was very reluctant to move to France and I had to be persuaded, I am more serene about living here now, having talked to expat in the same situation as me and knowing that Jesus, our saviour is by my side.
At Christmas, both of us have been hit by different virus. I was given cortisone and Steven was given antibiotics to clear his chest infection. We are on the mend 😀
My friend, do you know Jesus, the saviour of your Soul? He is the only mediator between the Lord and you. He walked on this earth and died willingly on a cross so that if we believe who he is (God) we can have eternal life. What are you waiting for?
