Where I stayed
I am normally a very shy and timid person. I don't really talk to strangers--heck, I am not even talkative around my own friends but this time I kept an open mind and accommodated sincere and genuine conversations with Chickay and her mom. This trip would've been very unbearable for me if I hadn't had their companionship to grace it.
Being reminded of the feel of familial connections, I sent text messages to my mom and dad to thank them for the countless things that I never really realized before
My son, do not despise the LORD's discipline
and do not resent his rebuke,
because the LORD disciplines those he loves,
as a father the son he delights in. (NIV)
No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful.
however, it produces a harvest of righteousness
and peace for those who
have been trained by it.
