Yes, I really am attempting to learn Farsi... just what in the world is Farsi? A very difficult language, and I only need a few words, I just want to be able to share a few sentences so she'll know I cared enough to try.... I drove her home from English class, she shared a few giggles.... we shared a few words... "green, turn left, I have 2 sisters".... Will she know my heart hurts with love for her? Jesus is love and all I can say when He says love, that's my only option. Love does. Love knows no boundaries... Love tries and I have to try.
Next time I see her I want to say Salam... Hello. I want her to know it mattered to me to try something new, to stretch myself for her. Her eyes tell me she's thankful I drove her home...
Did they see her in her all black hijab in my car? She's from Afghanistan....Do I care? Jesus said love and I am loving.
He's stretching me, I don't have all the answers regarding refugees, all I know is He said love... and they are here...so they are my neighbor.
