I was wondering what Meseret Defar of Ethiopia was doing after she crossed the finish line for the gold medal in the 5000 meter run. She was looking for something inside her singlet. I was really touched to see it was a picture of those whom she carries closest to her heart, Jesus and His Mother, Mary. So sweet. So inspiring... someone humbled to the point of showing what means most... after having given it all to the core. Wow... I just realized something... I could say the same about Jesus and Mary too.
Ephesians 5 Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children; 2 and walk in love, just as Christ also loved [c]you and gave Himself up for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God [d]as a fragrant aroma.
This is what the sky looks like at night when in Ethiopia. Just thinking about it makes me want to be there again. Beautiful people... difficult life for most... same moon for all of us.
