Although the view out your bedroom window or your balcony may look very bleak, all of us surely have one spot where we can sit and be quiet, looking at something of beauty. Whether it is a single palm tree, a green space, a flower, or even just a smooth stone, meeting with God in this quiet place day after day can change it into a garden like the Garden of Eden.  It can be your place to walk with God and talk to Him about all that is troubling you.  He wants to hear your thoughts and fears. So pull up a chair and keep your appointment with God.

About the author

My name is Susan Bergman De Vries. I left the United States in 1968 on my first summer missions trip, left again as a young wife in 1972, and have since then lived in Ghana, Costa Rica, Mindanao (Philippines), Kenya, and now Cyprus in the E.U. We have 3 daughters, born on 3 different continents, and now all 3 and their husbands are working in 3 different missions, in Mozambique and Brazil. All 10 of my grandchildren speak Portuguese (or will when they learn to talk) which my husband and I do not. Bummer, huh?

  • I could not help but resonate with the often unobvious sacrifices made as global workers (grandchildren speaking a different language). I found myself wishing this morning that my own parents had been missios so that they would better understand the purpose of the sacrifice rather than still pining over the loss of having their own grandchildren growing up near by.
