Third time’s a charm

Sonnie and I walked at the outer edge of Bethlehem.  A carful as a Muslim family passed us, waiving.  We greeted back, saying “Asala Marlikoom,” a common way to greet Arabic.  We then crossed them again when they stopped at a store.  We chatted for a minute before moving on.  About 1/4 mile down the road, they passed us again, just before turning into their driveway.  We all laughed at how we kept running into each other.  They invited us in for tea which we gladly accepted.  They boys of the large family like to play soccer and participate in games Thursday nights.  We made arrangements to see the game the week after.
