Do you wanna go to Dizzyland?

Ok, I couldn’t say no.  My sister asked, and it turned out that a friend that I was to visit in San Diego that same day had plans to visit Indiana later, when I would be back home there, so it worked out for my sis and I to go to Disneyland.  It was fun and entertaining, but at the same time mind boggling.  Why do people go there with newborn infants?  Why, in the “happiest place on earth” is it so rare to see people smiling as they walk along?  Why do we stand in line so long, so many times in one day, for just a few minutes of thrill and enjoyment?  Why do we think it’s okay to be in a veritable river of human lemmings, shoulder to shoulder, toe to stroller wheel, hip to wheelchair handles, bumping, chatting, saying “excuse me” every 3 seconds, slowly oozing toward the exit as the night closes in and the park shuts down?   blog disney mobWhy, why, why??  Maybe we’re just crazy!  I think we love to be entertained, love to be thrilled, and we have taught ourselves that it’s okay to pay the price of big $ and sore feet or sunburned noses for these very things. We’re searching for joy in some crazy places and at a high price.  I did have fun, though!  I had more fun being with my sister and watching her be a wild teacup turner and a laughing roller coaster rider than I have in awhile. Please don’t pay attention to the background in this photo!!

Maybe I’m crazier than most, freaked out while still on the ground!   I had a lovely time with my sister, and we actually had some good visiting time throughout the day (when the crowd around us kept the noise below a roar!).

About danforth

As Covenant missionaries, we are working with all the tribal groups of the Central African Republic (CAR) but are trying to give special attention to the Fulani, a Musxlim, cattle herding, and semi-nomadic people group. We live on an experimental/training farm, near a mission station which has a hospital plus bible and nursing schools. We are establishing relationships with the local people groups through compassion ministries; Roy through agriculture and Aleta through public health and visitation, in order, ultimately, to share the good news of Jesus the Messiah with them. CAR is one of the least developed countries in the world and is currently in continual crisis (since the coup in March 2013), so reaching out in compassion is key to reaching their hearts. Due to the ongoing conflict and resultant ethnic cleansing in CAR, we are crossing the border to interact with our Fulani contacts.
