OH DEAR! …SHOULD I BE SO CONFUSED?
Dear friends, let me share with you how I learned to let the pen venture in order to
brighten our times with sheer fun and wonderful laughter and amusement from the heart.
You see, when the Lord blessed our family with an escape from Africa, it was by an
open door from God’s own hands. This was through His intimate promise to bring us to
living here, in our United States ---praise God…Amen.
As a new comer to America, I was termed as “A Transplant”.
My former papers said I was a “Resident Alien.” As I prepared myself to belong too our
new surroundings, I thought in my daily life there was a great necessity to “Act
Then, as an aspiring American citizen, I discovered I had to behave “Almost
exactly contrary ” to our former background of a totally Middle Eastern nature,

Life in the U.S.A introduces new trends. In fact, it is not the “Same difference” that all
new settlers encounter. I often make it a basic point not to be left behind in my
Along my duty toward myself to reach many various extremes, I am taught to skate from
listening to “New oldies ”—to discovering secrets of merging our traditional

Dear friends, surely when our life-long Scottish missionary acquaintance, Mary Ann
Morrison, knows all this when she comes to see us for the first time , she will
definitely be overwhelmed! Hallelujah!
I believe this will be her remark:
