The first night in our new house in El Morral village, he noticed that he can see all the city lights from Chiquimula, the city down the mountain. He then informs us in the morning that he has the best room in the house and that we live in the best house ever. Those two statements are a big deal. There's not much he gets excited about, unless of course we are getting on the airplane to go to 'Bama.
I don't say these things to compare the States with Guatemala. (Mary K. And Uriah love every part of Guatemala.) I'm sharing a significant event in our lives. For the past few days, Levi has been a good different. (Of course being a 9 year old, he could wake up with a completely different attitude this morning.) But for this moment, I praise God for the spark.
We pray our kids love God no matter how much they dislike their circumstances. He gives us those "rooms with a view" just at that right moment. He is good.
May we trust Him far more than we trust our physical situation.
This is the view from Levi's and Uriah's room.
