There is a time and season for everything under the sun. I do believe this and I firmly believe that whatever crisis and pain I'm suffering through will eventually pass.
I feel as if my mind is in labor and wish that quickly it would give birth. Actually I feel like it's twins and one has already pass through and I writhe in agony awaiting the next arrival. At this point I look forward to the rest.
That rest that happens after you give birth and you can barely move, nor do you want to. Especially if there is no throbbing of pain whatsoever.
I realize how I'm missing that bond that I should have had with my own parents. I also realize how tempting it would have been to run home to parents in such crisis of life.
But sometimes you just need some support.
We didn't get to visit anywhere or do touristy stuff, but we did talk and pray many times.
I cried as they drove out on their journey home.
I wasn't sure if the kids would be singing in the worship team today, so I figured I'd go and try to make soccer on time.
It was more a type of street game today. Free from cheering, coaching or refereeing. It does help the kids implement what they've learned so far. That's how many young men get started in my country. Talent developed on the street. I like this idea.
They do not seem to like it that much when it's time to go, but always come out excited and happy. It's a funny transformation from going in and coming out.
I guess it's the practice part of going over and over the same song and movements :)
However I was so excited to hear my son (8yrs old) comes up to me and told me he knew his bible verse. I hailed him and he went on to recite it fully. Ephesians 2:19,20
Then of course baby girl had to be involved and she too (6yrs old) came to recite the whole verses!
With a world jabbing in and out of trends and influences. I want them to have a firm foundation in a God that never changes. So even if I fail them, they'll have a constant source of hope that never changes.
I try to do my bestest by my dear children. I learn along with them. They are my blessings and I hope that I can provide the mother love and landing they need to push out on their own wings.
