Mother of the Bride Spot

Random thoughts on being a Mother of the Bride...although since we are now past The Wedding, perhaps this would be better titled Random Thoughts On Life In General...

I'm dying for some pictures. Tim in his native garb, eating from the common pot, slurping the food from his (right) hand. Taking a "bucket bath" (well, maybe just a picture of the bucket....) Sleeping in the courtyard with three families and 12 goats.

I'm having a hard time seeing it all in my mind's eye.

Really, really different than living in suburbia, US of A.

Somehow I think it is reminiscent of Jesus leaving his heavenly home and coming to dwell -- not among the kings -- but among the common folk of the day. Becoming one of them. Ministering to their needs -- not through faith based initiatives -- but by providing food for the hungry, solace for the weary, healing for the sick, and an answer to their spiritual longings.

I think it is helping me understand the gospels just a bit better.
