Yesterday was jet lag recovery day for two of us and seeing the temples for all of us through the day. We spent most of the day at the temple complex here in Siem Reap and were just in awe of the beauty and the craftsmanship of the temples. In particular, I was struck by one of Marjie’s comments reflecting upon our human pride in craftsmanship. We build these awesome places whether here in Cambodia or cathedrals in Europe or countless other things, yet is is God, the creator, who has the final word. This was particularly clear in the temples where the trees have grown through and over the temples. It created an awesome beauty but also a powerful picture of the power of God’s creation.
Last night we spent the evening having dinner and then watching a cultural Cambodian dance following our meal. The beauty in the dance was stunning.
After a good night’s sleep, we are getting ready to head to the silk market this morning and then driving to Phnom Penh.
