I’ve hit a new low in Siberia-15 F ๐Ÿ˜‰

I finally have some good news. It looks like things are picking up on the work front. I think a long translation of some obscure economic document is in the works for me. Downside: it’s an obscure 40 page long economic document. Upside: I get paid. Yay. lol. Otherwise, things are going just fine. I took a brisk walk outside in 15 F degree weather. Nothing out of the ordinary for a Siberian morning. ๐Ÿ™‚

Mom’s working on getting us some better internet. It’s been so stressful trying to work and teach and work on S.Iv’s book while having an awful Internet connection. Grrr. Internet has been the bane of my existence for the past 6 months. On the flipside, I think I’ve been finally cured of the tech addiction that is so prevalent among modern people today…

Today I woke up and prayed like I always do. I usually say what it is I’m grateful for but today I felt like praying for others. Even within my small sphere of influence there are so many people to pray for. My father who has ongoing health problems with his knee ( he was shot over a decade ago). N, who is facing a 6 months prison term for a stupid prank. J, who has an alcoholic mother she loves nonetheless. M, who is recovering from a suicide attempt. ย There is hope. Turn to God and then do the best that you can. After all, God helps those who help themselves.

Peace โค
