I listen to the gentle murmuring voice
Of our city, awake despite the hour
And I linger, unwilling to return
To the television world inside — droolingmonkey

Freedom in America



Yesterday I had my interview with immigration.The man seemed puzzled as to why I was there.He said you already have permanent residency and you dont need to do a thing!
He also told me that within 3 mths I can apply for dual citizenship!!
This is such a joy to me and such a relief.This is the land of milk and honey,of freedom and liberty..the place where my heart met my soul and where I found my love.
Im so happy and thankful that I can now spend my time in 2 countries as was James plan for me all along.
I can be with my friends here that are so good and kind to me.I have been helped by so many friends here and Im eternally grateful to them.I have found a church I love where I can sit and have solitude and sing good old hymns like Rock of Ages and How Great Thou Art.The women of the church are good kind sweet ladies that visit the sick and care for the elderly.
I talked to James brother Danny today and hes hanging in there and is one of the strongest bravest men Ive ever met..just like James.The Taylors are a strong breed:)
Its makes my heart happy to know that Danny found God.
Im now planning my trip back to NZ to see my family.I will go for a couple of mths and then come back here in time for summer.I will go to Oklahoma and ride around with Howard and be free in the wind living the same way I did before.
Some things have been very puzzling to me and Im confused but its nothing I can do anything about so Im leaving that in Gods hands.
But in general,Im feeling good.Im happy and at peace.
As usual Im thankful to my faithful family and friends.

Wow, that is wonderful, what a great World we live in. To look at something that would or should be seemingly complex and yet, it is not, especially this day and age, suberb!
