Sonidos Serranos

Sonidos Serranos: Sounds of the Sierras...
Reflecting some of my family's interests: God's wonderful creation (especially mountains and hills!), music, and language...

Psalm 121:1-2 (NASB)

I will lift up my eyes to the mountains;
From where shall my help come?
My help comes from the LORD,
Who made heaven and earth.

thankful for – yerba mate

Yes, I'm enjoying mate (pronounced like /mah-tay/) this afternoon. It's a gray winter day here in the Upstate, reminiscent of a rainy winter day in Uruguay, so I'm doing what any Uruguayan would do to keep warm – I'm drinking mate!

Only recently did I become aware of the alleged health benefits of yerba mate. For me, drinking mate is what Uruguayans do – and what my own daddy did and still does every morning in Uruguay – and it is probably the single best way to be identified as an uruguayo or uruguaya.

That sounds yummy! I just read the article about you and your family that was written for EMU. :) It was so much fun to be at my desk in the church office and to open the mail and see more about what the Lord is doing in your lives. That really made my afternoon special! Have a warm and cosy evening.
