July 7 (Day 132): Dear brothers and sisters, It’s a rainy day in Brasov today. Dark clouds are so low and the mountains around are covered with fog. The weather influences the mood and makes you feel sad and sleepy. But I know that there is sun behind the clouds and this weather will not last forever.
Yesterday we had a good time at women’s Bible study where we discussed the phenomenon of change in our life. God allows dark times and our lives change and the changes sometimes are so hard. But we must learn to adapt to new circumstances to new environment and God will help us to write a new chapter in our life. This topic is so important for people who are away from home and worry about their future. I hope the material of MaryJo Burchard that I shared with the ladies would be helpful and will encourage ladies to make plans and move ahead with their lives.
My daughter, Kxxx, will come back to Romania this weekend I will go home. I want to go home but it will be hard to part with my grandchildren.
Our counselor Rxxxx shared the photos of sand therapy he had with a 9-year-old boy form the families of refugees that came to Odesa when their village was occupied. The first picture shows the members of his family. He identified himself with a little mouse who wants to stay in the hole and don’t want to come out. But then gradually the mouse was able to go out and accept some things he can enjoy. Then little by little many things appeared in his life that bring him joy and comfort. He finished the story with the words: “they all lived together and there was peace”
Now it is a harvest time in Ukraine, when the wheat of the fields is being harvested. It’s a very hard task now. The field workers risk their lives every day, they can become a target of air attack or hit mines on the field.
Please, pray for agrarian workers who often have to work under fire.
