Even worse is the biggest roller coaster that thrills the teenagers. My son and his nine-year-old go on it nine times! Its speed is frightening, and I expect to see streams of vomit during the corkscrew sequence but the riders hold it together and love it.
We are enjoying a family holiday in Thailand, having come from several parts of the globe to get here and meet up. To visit Siam Park City, a popular tourist attraction in Bangkok, we have used three taxis to transport the thirteen of us from our hotel. The computer experts among us have scoured the internet to find the best amusement park in which to spend the day. It is a tall order to find somewhere that will suit the teenagers and the littlies, as well as the grandies. This place is superb.
After my scary ride I am content to be the person who ‘minds the stuff’. I can sit in the shade looking after the bags and watch the two littlest in the water while others go off and enjoy their rides. By the end of the day I count five rides in my tally, well short of others in our group, but I am content.
We don’t all have to be the same, or to enjoy the same things. I am content to watch the others enjoy themselves, and it is a pleasure to watch the grandchildren who we don’t see very often. They need the action and variety.
I am glad God has variety in his family and in his kingdom. Each one of us has special gifts, and we don’t all have to do the same things. In fact it would be terrible if we did. For then there would be some tasks left undone.
God knows our needs and has designed his wonderful world for us to enjoy. We thank him for special family times and for his protection and blessing.
