month of onions

Today in our culture lecture at school we were talking about the difference between “stress” and “pressure” and what it means to have culture stress or strain… I found it ironic since I just posted this last night. Turns out (which I already knew, but always nice to have it confirmed) that I am normal! Also, I learned that this stage in Arabic is called, “the month of onions”… First you have the honeymoon stage (month of honey) and then the onions– makes sense to me!

I can also see that after time the onion stage can bring great flavor to life, just like they do in food.

Just thought I would share this fun fact with you. Love how God has great timing for all things.
