Bandana's... One of God's Great Inventions!

The simplicity of my life
Blesses me
On a daily basis

One of the things
That lately I have
Been considering
Is a simple...

I know right...
Pretty straight-forward

Are they

You would be
At how versitale
They are here
In Kitgum, Uganda

For example
Did you know
They they could be used...
To turn a cute youngster
Into a fierce robber!


I know right!
How these wonders work
Isn't it

What about
A slightly less fearful transformation
The cowboy


In this case
It does cause
A normally sweet boy
To pick up
A papaya branch
And transform that
Into a long-rifle

Who would have thought it!

There is
The always fierce


With scallywag snarl!

Then watch out!
Not only does it do all this
But it also
Completes Darth Vader's
Robot Arm!!!


George Lucas should
Have taken this
Into consideration
When they did costume design!

Now we have
The slightly less frightening
Even bandana's have
A good side

Here we have
The sweat band


Let me say
Much needed
In the hot season!

Now we have
Practical use
For aspiring chef's!


Or how about
For aspiring eaters :)


And last
But not least
Pretty much
Everyone needs
A Super hero
Floating around


So there you have it
Such a simple invention

And yet
So many ways
To put it to use

Praise God
For small gifts

A Bit of an Update

A few weeks have gone by
Sorry about not updating

It seems my computer cord
Decided to spoil

Which meant I had to take
A temporary
From the internet
As well as blogging

I am back
With a "temporary" cord
Until a better one
Can be sent up

And also
With a thankful heart
For a working computer!

Funny how easy it is
To take for granted
The little things
Like working computer cords
Then when they are gone
You realize how blessed you are!

Another thing
That I realized
Is that in America
I always took for granted
My dining room table

Today for supper
We had potato soup
As I was dishing it out
I realized
That if it spilled
The kids were going to have
A burn
No bueno!

Make shift tables

Yes Please!

These boys even said
It was like
Going to a restaurant!

To which Eston
(on the left below)
When he has a restaurant some day
He might do it like this!

All in all

Just another way
To see blessing :)

Even Elizabeth
Who got to use
The corner of the cooking counter
Loved it!

God is so good to us!

Please continue
To keep all of us
In your prayers

Summer, Eryn and Ezekiel
Left this morning
In preparation
For going to America

How long they will be in America
Is at the moment unsure
But because of Summer's health
It might have to be
Up to several months

Please be praying for the McCourtney Family
During this time

As well as myself
and a girl named Elise
(who will be staying with us
for a few months)

As we all press on
With what the Lord has called us to
This season!

May the name of Jesus
Be praised
And lifted higher daily!
