In the middle of the night, while discussing an important
decision we are facing, we suddenly realized a funny
confusion with respect to a certain Bible reference.
I was under the conviction that Li-Xia
had made a reference
to Ecclestiastes verses 3:5,6 the other day.
She had told me that these were the verses she had copied
(in Chinese) on a small piece of paper, which by accident
had fallen behind our bed.
I have to admit, that I was a little puzzled about why
she considered these verses so significant, as they read:
Of course, they are profound in
themselves, but I did not understand their applicability to
I was a little surprised that Li-Xia suddenly had become so
much more of a philosopher or a mystic (whatever might be the case).
We both had to laugh, when we discovered that I had mistaken
Proverbs for Ecclestiastes, and that she had had
3:5,6 in mind all the time, which read:
Trust in the LORD with all your heart
It really made us laugh. But later on, I realized that
this might have been a divine mistake, and saw the
verses from Ecclesiastes as suggestion to choose one
of the options that lays a head of us.
And do not lean on your own understanding.
In all your ways acknowledge Him,
And He will make your paths straight.

Hottest Day of the Year, sofar...
When I arrived at the office, I seemed the only person
not wearing shorts. Predicted temperature was between
28 and 30 degrees Celsius, which was hotter than any other
day of the year sofar.
We had our first ice-creams, and installed some fans to
reduce the temperature in the office.
