Honestly, that last post seemed a little anti-climatic for all that we’ve been praying through, all the meetings we’ve had, all the excitement, & all the answered prayers!
But, really, it has been a season of juggling and running, running, running. We just arrived from Chiang Mai today and I am leaving for Bangkok tomorrow. Oh, and while we are making plans for how to stay in this country and how to pursue all of these hopeful changes, there was a military coup, and we now have a curfew.
It just seems the proper moment to focus on the lighter side of things.
This is from a Bangkok Post article today:
“First Thailand’s junta seized power, then they commandeered every TV channel for round-the-clock broadcasts of dour announcements and patriotic hymns. The public’s verdict: DJ, please change the soundtrack.
…In this day and age, it’s not surprising that the generals who launched Thailand’s coup have set up a Facebook page.
But it was a sign of the times that the junta’s vintage tunes didn’t resonate with the Facebook generation.
‘Since you’re reforming politics, you might as well reform your music,’ said one of many postings on the page, which had over 230,000 likes by Friday evening, up exponentially from earlier in the day.
Song requests poured in — for Justin Timberlake, Michael Jackson, the Disney hit Let It Go, and for foot-tapping Thai folk music.
…And after about 24 hours, they did.”
I’m not sure really what to do with this other than to laugh on so many accounts.
