When my friend Jackie came to visit me in Korea, I wanted to give her a real taste of the country (pun intended), so we ventured out to the streets to find the popular Korean snack, bundaegi – silkworm larvae.
We bought a paper cup full of the intimidating-looking bugs for a whopping $2 and proceeded to spend the next 5 minutes mentally preparing ourselves; very Fear Factor-esque. Finally, on the count of three (with trembling hands) we took the plunge.
Let it suffice to say, it didn’t taste like chicken. But, I’m glad we experienced something outside of our cultural norm. Would you ever eat silkworm larvae? Have you encountered ‘exotic’ food in another country that you were hesitant to try? I’d love to hear about your experience!
Are you facing a difficult decision? Have you stumbled upon a fork in the road of life? Do not fear, friend. God is with you and has promised to guide your every step if you put your trust in Him.
“Trust in the Lord with your whole heart and lean not on your own understanding. Acknowledge Him in all your ways, and
He will direct your path” – Proverbs 3:5-6
I pray the Lord will lead you always, and that your life overflows with His Love, Joy and Peace. Be blessed, friend!
This year was the first time in my life that I’ve spent Christmas away from my family.
At first I felt somewhat apprehensive, but it turned out to be a wonderful experience. Away from the usual hustle and bustle of annual traditions, I was able to focus on the true meaning of Christmas; God’s greatest gift to the world – the birth of Jesus Christ.
No matter how far from home you may be right now, remember that your Heavenly Father has promised to be with you always – to the end of the age. May God bless you richly this Christmas and in the year to come!
