Today though, all of a sudden I had and knew my words of what I wanted to say and in the right language (italian).... I was going to let the moment pass, but I had my heart welling up in my throat, and a pounding in my chest to just speak up.
"Dio, grazie che tu sei il Principe di la pace e mio principe di la pace. Dove tu sei Signore, c'é la pace"
Which means: God, thank you for being the Prince of Peace and my Prince of Peace. Where you are Lord, there is peace.
Anyway, I really felt apart of the community in that moment. I generally ask my church friends to speak to me in Italian. We do a mixture of Italian and English so that they can practice and I can practice. Today it was to ringraziare--give thanks all together and in Italian :)
