Giving thanks – Day 12

Wheels

Wheels can take you just about anywhere. But I specifically appreciate those bigger wheels that keep a steel framework moving, providing us with transport.

Now, as often as our cars stick their tongues out at us, they are reliable most of the time, except when we really need them to be. ;P But if you have a vehicle, or your family does, you are privileged.

So many people don’t.

Imagine having to walk everywhere. I’m not referring to Western related countries where most folks make use of reliable public transport.
It’s not like that here.
If you live in a hut, you’re gonna walk. Old or sick, young and healthy. Africa’s society have accepted our culture that way.

This morning I drove back from the hospital with a friend, and we just echoed the same principle.

Imagine if we didn’t have a car. Since we can’t walk, (it’s not safe) we’d always have to depend on other people for lifts. This is inconvenient. And not to mention, embarassing.

Imagine…

Thank you Lord, so much, for our car.

    Firstly, thank you so much for the lovely comment you left on our blog. We’re just sorry we didn’t get to”meet” while we were still in South Africa!

    We haven’t had regular internet since our move to New Zealand but now that we are back online we’re looking forward to keeping up with your blog! 🙂

    God bless you!
