in the moments before dawn…

It’s 5:30ish am here. There is a rooster crowing. A mosque sending out its morning call to worship. My neighbor is outside sweeping. This happens every morning.

I am under my mosquito net in the dark – with just the glow of my computer.

I am not fully committed to Uganda time, because every so often I will wake up at an odd hour wide awake. But in these moments of quiet, I am usually kept company by the sweet words of love and encouragement of my friends and family back home.

Each correspondence looks a little different – like the many faces and personalities of my friends. Some are filled with nothing but encouragement. Or include tiny morsels of life back home. And still others carry on as if I’m right there in Atlanta.

I was sent two bible verses today that I’ve been praying over (and their senders) this morning.  Both seem to fit my days lately:

From Carolyn – “Look at the nations and watch, and be utterly amazed.  For I am going to do something in your days that you would not believe, even if you were told.”Habakkuk 1:5

And from Jenn and David:

Thank you for your sweet words and prayers, always. Your emails and words of love and support seem to find me at just the right time each day.

Love,
Amanda
