"asante sana Jesus"
After posting about Annikah's dear shoga leaving it was so sweet how many people asked how she is doing. Actually remarkable well considering they were inseparable for the past 3 months. She still has many days when she runs outside only to remember Mgoray is no longer here or she tells us "Mama, Papa, me want Mgoray come back." We continued to ask Jesus every night when we prayed to help her find new friends and He did! The very week her best friend left she had 3 girls stop over to play. We also got to go to the skuku with some kids from the neighborhood as well. One little girl has come over several times and Annikah loves when she hears her voice. She runs and finds her shoes and says "Mama, me need to play with new friend." A few nights ago when I was asking her at bedtime what she wanted to pray about she said "Mama, me want to say asante sana to Jesus for new friends." That was an easy prayer that I echoed in my heart. I am reminded as Christmas approaches that He cares so much about our humanness that he came to sacrifice, to love us in our weakness, and know what we feel. Today, we grateful for new friends around here.
