Not All Bad...Not Bad at All!

In looking back on previous posts here, I think I've done an awful lot of telling you about the bad things here in Haiti--the challenges, the trials, the hardships.  Today, though, I am filled with thankfulness.  I stand in awe of the Haitian people who are living around me.  I complain about not having running water and electricity and they make do without those things and so much more all their lives.   

We have been blessed with a safe and comfortable home that now has the basic utilities we're accustomed to.  And, it's set in a beautiful place... Most importantly, we're together as a family, learning the lessons God has planned for us here and doing the work He has for us, whatever that may be.            
     This is the view out our front door. That big tree out front is a Mango tree and that's our red gate out to the dirt lane in front of our house.     

Another view of the front courtyard.

Hibiscus bloom continuously on bushes all around the yard... Every morning there are hummingbirds that come to the flowers.

The tiny front yard... That is a coconut tree by the patio.

Coconut tree.  We harvested 3 coconuts last week and got to taste coconut milk.  Fun experience, but none of us liked it--yuck!

Lots of these little lizards bask in the sun on the wall around the house.  They're all different sizes--from 1 inch head to tail to 7 inches head to tail.
This is the view from the roof of our house.  That's Mont Voudreil in the distance.
1 Thessalonians 5:18  "Thank God in everything [no matter what the circumstances may be, be thankful and give thanks], for this is the will of God for you [who are] in Christ Jesus [the Revealer and Mediator of that will]."
