She said, "The more people have, the less happy they are. And the less people have, the more happy they are."
I guess that would explain why, as a general rule, people in Ethiopia are happier than people in America.
From the Guest House:
I've been thinking a lot about the luxury of worry. Here in the third world we don't wear seat belts. In fact, people sometimes pay as much as they can afford just to get a ride hanging on to the outside of the taxi. They don't have the luxury to worry about what is safe. No safety harnesses. No hand sanitizer. No rear-facing carseats or traffic police to ticket you for going five over.
God has blessed us so much we have the time and money to worry about ever last little thing.
Not that this is all bad, but what if we had a fear of God like we have a fear of salmonella?
