I do a lot of writing, for this blog and for my novel, but recently I did something a little different. I have a friend who writes a blog for his cross-cultural daughter, Mia Mei. Mia Mei’s dad is Caucasian and her mother is Chinese. The blog is about growing up in a cross-cultural home and parenting a cross-cultural child.
I was challenged to write a blog for this genre. No problem. I can do that. It took a bit to think through how I would write a God-themed post for a cross-cultural child, but then I got it. I wrote about Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego being taken from their homeland and forced to grow up and be educated in another country.
The greater challenge was the two hundred word limit while story-telling. I like story-telling, so it was hard to not make it longer than it was. But it did speak to me. When I consider what those young men faced and how they stood in their integrity and faith, I’m humbled. Would I have the where with all to do the same thing? I hope to never be faced with that test.
Anyway, if you’re interested in how Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego faced the fiery furnace on Mia Mei’s blog, check it out. Tell her hi while you’re at it.
