photos in GuangZhou

I have no idea how blogger will post these photos.
I have included photos of our room at the Holiday Inn Shifu.  it is so nice!
I also inlcuded photos of the decor around the islnad and walg street near the hotel.
There are mandarin trees everywhere as decoration for Chinese new year and the lantern festival.
There is also a photo of a sock with money inside.
I could not find my money belt so my money was enclosed in one of
 Cassie's socks and tucked neatly into my sports bra.  TMI---sorry.
Just thought it was so funny.
The last photo I attached is of my "sister I never had"...dear sweet Angela!
Her hair is so long and she was putting curls in.  BUT--she is frustrated because it is soooo humid here.
Temps in the low 80's today.  SO much nicer than last June when it was over 100 degrees.
Next post---  Samanatha!!
HUGS to all.
PS-  I had some quiet time this morning...most of you know i have a very hard time with this.   I feel so drawn to God whii am here.
So I read a little of the Psalms...the ones that praise Him...then I went into Colossians:
and then the BIble "popped" open to my favortie Isaiah!
Isaiah 43:5-6
Do not be afraid for I am with you I will bring your children from the East
and gather you from the west.  I will say to the North "Give them up!"
and to the South  "Do not hold them back"
Bring my sons from afar and my daughters from the ends of the Earth.
AMEN!!   Today...my daughter from the South....in a week..my daughter from the North.
