Recently, I asked my older students to write and talk with me about their favorite Bible story, and almost all of them wrote about Joseph in Genesis and how he forgave his brothers and God had a plan in everything. I too shared my favorite story, and I thought I'd share it with all of you today, since it has come up in almost every song I sang at the Spanish and English churches I attend.
My favorite story, found in Luke 7, is about Jesus being annointed by the sinful woman. I wrote about this story almost exactly a year ago in the blog here
and now that I think about it, it's strange that this same story is coming up again at almost the same time. But anyways, here's a little of the story:

Happy Valentines Day!
I have spent most of this Valentines weekend being, sick, but that has just shown me how awesome my friends here are (as if I didn't already know)!
I missed school for the first time on Thursday, as two of the English teachers stepped up to cover my classes for me, another did my grocery shopping for me Saturday, and yet another sent me some soup and crackers she had made!
The Lord has blessed me with great relationships here, but the greatest relationship has been with Him. I am lucky to call Him my Valentine, and to spend the day praising Him and celebrating with these precious friends who love me "in sickness and in health."
I hope you all have a wonderful day celebrating with your valentines, whoever they may be!
