K-Love in France
I finally downloaded the free RealPlayer app to our music/server laptop and got it to play K-Love Radio through our speakers. I am happy to have "encouraging words and positive music" back in my ears in English, with my favorite Christian musicians lifting my heart to God. Good words like mercy, grace, surrender, melting away pride, washing, and " I need You, I need You, I need You..." by Jars of Clay.
The funny thing is that, because of the time difference, the DJs in California have their quiet middle-of-the-night voices on...and the sun shines brightly here this morning at 10:30am...I've never listened to K-Love at 1:30am before!
Yesterday I told God, "I'm so glad you speak English, and not just French..." It was a relief to put that into words, since lately I've only heard about God in French, naturally. Both are good, but though my mind can speak French, my heart speaks English. Interesting for me to realize and take into account. As the British folks in our church here have discovered, though, the heart can be taught other languages. They've been living and working with churches here in France for ten years or so, and they habitually pray in French now, even when they are on their own.

Loved your comments about language. When I was in college studying French, one of my profs said something like, "You know you're getting it when you start thinking in French." The same could apply to any language.
But in thinking about praying and speaking with God and living for Him, how differently our hearts and minds sound when we really start thinking in His language - maybe that's when we know we're finally getting Him.
