Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

So what happened? Did you catch that train? The suspense is killing me!

Well... there you go...
I finished filling in the 7-list-...thing.

I did not really catch my train. It was delayed (which can be expected in the Netherlands)
So I had to wait for the second train to come... and catch another train on Utrecht Central, and that train was delayed also... thEN they had these strange new pass-systems in Rotterdam that I didn't know about...
so that was a good patience-exercise there.
Once I arrived in the hospital in Rotterdam, the visiting-hour was allready over. I do not easily loose my temper, but I almost did.
Glad my father was there as well, so I didn't go all the way to Rotterdam for a few seconds.

But it's oke now :-)
