“Si Bondye vle.” “If the Lord wills it…” James 4:15

Today’s reading from James 4:15 is one of the first phrases we learned in Creole, “Si Bondye vle.” Haitian people use this very often, especially when something is planned to happen or they expect to meet you another time or day. We wonder if this is from the difficult life experiences they have. They seem to accept all things that come their way whether good or bad. We are learning a lot from our brothers and sisters. “Si Bondye vle.”

    Interesting. Something similar in English would be “God willing I will (blank)” My mom and others in my family would often speak in that way.
