I can’t sleep.
I am counting verses in lieu of sheep.
For some bizarre reason.
It might be due to plenty of rest the previous night or the Via smoothie the Engineer made us tonight for our stay-at-home date.
Not really bizarre after all.
So I tap. From my phone. Surrounded by darkness under a swiftly moving fan that reminds me of hot India nights.
I find myself contemplating language. Grammar . . . Mostly due to my recent induction into Classical Conversations lingo, which I won’t link too because that seems entirely too complex on this tiny phone.
When I grabbed the addictive device, the ad below my clock offered to translate any sentence.
Could we just supply an entire people group with iPhones? People who need access to the Bible.
The Vidunda people group (which you help support by patronizing this site) could have the instant ability to discover the life saving message found in the Bible, right?
I wish it were so simple.
I find myself anxious. Next year we begin learning Latin. I am going to assist my children in conquering a foundational language — one that inadvertently kept believers from searching the Scriptures for themselves several generations ago.
Our educational journey will be this amazing journey akin to a time machine.
Yet my heart . . . Wants to be a bit more practical.
Lately I find myself yearning for more of God. I desperately want to be engaged with Someone bigger than myself. Selfishly, I admit, I miss traveling….serving Jesus in an exotic land….India.
My journal is filled with this longing.
I must be content with something similar in name only, Indiana.
So I will learn my Latin. I will study hard. With each word I learn, I know that multiple words will be translated for the Vidunda people.
And each time I struggle may I remember that I can read about hope whenever I want to. Someone already translated the Bible for me.
Help me make it easier for someone else.
Please consider sponsoring Bible translation.
