I'm in Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE), out of all the other places I could be in now. Regardless of how unconventional my current work status is, I'm truly appreciative about being here.
It's unimaginable what the bordering countries are momentarily going through. And here I am walking around, looking for TOPSHOP, confidently as a woman, without worrying that anyone will randomly shoot me.
At church service today, we prayed for UAE as it celebrates the union of the seven emirates (Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Sharjah, Ajman, Ras Al Khaimah, Fujairah, & Umm Al Quwain) into one country on December 2, 1971.
Although I'm not (/yet) too keen on long term residence plans, I do care very much about UAE and would love to see this great country prosper & be blessed!
