I got questions all the time while in Greece.
Where was I from?
Why do I live in Poland?
Is my husband Polish?
Did business bring my husband to Poland???
We went on a tubing ride in the Ionian Sea, and the loveliest lady that owned the little “surf-type shack” loved asking these questions…
So, I thought a moment and told her my husband was not Polish, he was 100% American, but he is a pastor. So, in a sense, I guess he is a businessman in the “Business of God” — to which she beautifully proclaimed with her Greek enthusiasm and delightful accent, “The best business of all—the business of God!”
And then she reached her arms over her head and spread them across the sky and said, “God overall!”
We all wholeheartedly agreed and traipsed into the lapping waves of the sea, where we hopped onto a UFO-type raft and allowed the Greek captain of his small speed boat pull us haphazardly through the sea where we screamed, maybe cried a little…laughed a lot and Adelyne belted, “Kumbaya, my Lord! Let me live!”
The ride ended much to our mutual disappoint and actual thrill, and we went back to collect our items from the Greek Surfing Lady and we all proclaimed, “God bless you,” “And you!”
And smiled one last smile before we trailed down the beach, leaving footprints in the sand, to enjoy our last sunset in Peloponnese…
Greece, we agree, one God overall.
Thank you, beautiful country, for a sun-kissed delightful week with my precious namesake and firstborn.
I saw the paintbrush of God every evening in the sunsets and the stroke of his perfect clarity each time I looked out at His blue seas!
And to you, our perfect surf-shack lady, thank you for reminding us that being in the business of this amazing painter and God is TRULY the best business of all!
God bless you, our friend!
