I Remember You
Several times now my English speaking Karen friends, who I haven’t seen for a long time, have greeted me on the phone saying “I remember you”. It seems to be a Karen expression they have carried over to English. I brings into recollection our common history and times we have been together visiting. It is a good greeting.
I was reading this morning from Job and realized that even in times of discouragement God’ remembers us: (Job 7:17-21 NIV) “What is man that you make so much of him, that you give him so much attention, that you examine him every morning and test him every moment? Will you never look away from me, or let me alone even for an instant? If I have sinned, what have I done to you, O watcher of men? Why have you made me your target? Have I become a burden to you?) Why do you not pardon my offenses and forgive my sins? For I will soon lie down in the dust; you will search for me, but I will be no more.”
