Anniversary Blues

(to be read aloud in blues rhythm) gift-box-anniversary-cake-for-1st-year

I woke up this morning (dah dah dah dah…)

“Where am I?” I said.

“You’re living in Holland”,

Said the voice in my head.

Ah yes, I remember…

‘Tis the land of the clog,

The tulip, the windmill,

And I’m writing a blog.

 

Two years ago

This journey began

With the feeling that God had

For us a new plan.

When BMS asked us

To join the staff here

At IBTSC

We accepted with fear!

 

We’ve been here a year now,

Quite settled and all.

We’ve moved to Nieuw Vennep,

A town near Schiphol.

Our neighbours are friendly,

Their English first rate.

And this has proved handy,

Since our Dutch ain’t great!

 

The work we are doing

Is challenging, yes,

But we’re glad to be here

And count ourselves blest!

I woke up this morning

“Where am I?” I said.

“Still living in Holland”,

Smiled the voice in my head.
