The Word from Ukraine...


Last night I was reading through the journal I wrote while I was in Ukraine. While doing that I decided three things.

1. I think too much.
2. I think too much.
3. I felt a lot of things then that I almost forgot, but should always remember.

//One of the entries went like this..
Dec. 14 2005..
I want to trust You, never doubt.
I want to love You, never ceasing.
I want to please You, but not through works.
I want to worship You, but not for all others to see.
I want to serve You, but not for my benefit.
I just want to praise You.
I just want to learn I can't lose Your love and that it is unending.

It's one of those things that one might pray about and then later forget you asked for. He's beginning to unveil it. And it's beautiful.

On a slightly lighter note, I got an email from Andrey (for your Bible schoolers) and it went a bit like this..

Greetings Melanie.
Now I can communicate with you through the Internet because have connected
it to the computer. I'm fine. The wife and the daughter feel like perfectly.
I have finished the first rate of university and have passed on the second.
Write to me I wait for news from you.

I love how Russian translates into English.
