Tapastalatok: A Kórház élmény

A Magyar kórház nagyon érdekes hely --különösen a betegnek!

Russell hat nap a kórházban volt. Egy nagyon dramatikus multi-kulturalis élmény volt.

Amerikai emberek és Magyar emberek nagyon különböző fogolomok meztelenség illetőleg.

Szerint az Amerikai ember, ruha nem csak egy divatos dolog. A ruha egy fontos dolog. Az Amerikai ember nem akar masik emberek a meztelen testje latni. Nagyon kinos!!!!!!

De a magyar nem nagyon aggodalmaskodó. Neha, nagyon boldog felfedni több test mint senki sem akar latni.

Ez igaz különösen a korhazban.

Amikor Russell a kórházban volt, szobatársa van. A harmadik nap, az uj sobatárs jött. A név Nagy Ferenc.

Nagy Ferenc nagyon baratsagos ferfi. Ferenc üdvözöl mindenki a szobaban a mosogolyyal. Mindenki szereti Nagy Ferenc. Ez nagyon bűbájos ember beszelgetnek Russellel es a masik magyar beteggel a szobababan. Magyaraz az operációjat. Ferenc mondj hogy "Itt van a röntgenképet, és az operáció itt lesz."

Most a baratsagos Ferenc felfedt a meztelen feneke!

Eh! Ez túl sok informacio a Amerikai szemeknek.

Az igaz mindenki szereti Nagy Ferenc, de szerintem ez volt túl sok Nagy Ferenc szeretni.

Nagy Ferenc operacioja sikerül volt, és a jövö nap elment boldogan a haza.

De szerintem, Russell lehet soha felépül teljesen a multikuluralis élménytol a Nagy Ferenccel.

The Gift

"There's far more to this life than trusting in Christ. There's also suffering for him. And the suffering is as much a gift as the trusting." --The Message Phillipians 1:29

Lullaby of Heaven


Do you hear it?

Listen hard. It's drowned out by the sounds of cell phones ringing, TVs blaring, and all the pressures of daily life, but it is still there.

But it can be, oh so hard to hear.

It is a melody than can only originate one place. It whispers from the highest halls of heaven and seeks to tenderly comfort the human ear. It is the lullaby of heaven.

Why do we sing lullabies to babies?

To provide comfort, to create security, and to bring the child into a place of rest.

We too need to hear such lullabies, especially when we fall in to the valleys of life. And such lullabies are ringing out right now, if we will only stop to listen.

The lullaby of heaven poured out boldly last week when a pregnant horse and a ping-pong table landed my husband in the hospital for a week. But it rings out with equal comfort when day to day drudgery drives me into melacholy mediocrity.

It rings out when the piles of laundry start to resemble the insurmountable great Alps and when the leak under the kitchen sink which looked like a dribble yesterday begins to rush like Victoria Falls today-- with no plumber in sight!

It is a lullaby that says "Yes, in the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world." (John 16:23) It says, "And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age." (Matt 28:20)

And it was celestially designed from the dawn of time to draw us completely into His rest. (Hebrews 4).

So take a moment to turn down the volume on the blaring ruckus we call life. And listen closely. You may hear a lullaby from heaven meant just for you.

There's a melody of comfort
for human hearts that cry,
for those so pained,
whose hopes have waned,
a celestial lullaby.

It's a melody from heaven
that bathes your heart with light,
to dry your tears,
and soothe your fears,
through the dark and stormy night.

And when that lullaby from heaven
seems so far away
Know that it rings still,
and always will,
for all who dare to pray

And the lullaby of heaven
will bring you through this test.
Just incline your ear
Let Him draw you near
Into His perfect rest.
