Sweet Surprise

Last night, my roommie knocked at my door telling me she has something for me.

Tadaaaa!!  

Her granddaughter sent me a thank you card and a cake she baked to express her gratitude. So sweeeet!! 😍😍😍

It’s amazing how kids are so appreciative at an early age. I get a lot of thank you’s from kids for even just the little things I give to them. I must say, good job to the parents!

We all can learn from the little ones on their heart of gratefulness. They just know how to melt our hearts. 🤗🤗

Making the Most

So many amazing things happened for the past two weeks.  Hopefully, I could really sit down and write about it.

For now, I just want to share the awesome vacation I had with my best friend and her family in Alberta. Before I went back to working again, I decided to spend my last week at my friend’s. I will never be able to spend a long week with them so I have to make the most when I can. I took the long bus trips going to and from Calgary via Greyhound. It wasn’t that bad considering that I was really able to save a lot in my fare.

It was my first time visiting their new home in Cochrane and I must say I really liked the town. I also got the chance to see Canmore which is very beautiful. You can clearly see the Rocky Mountain from there. They have this cute little town as well.

But the most favorite part of my vacation was to be able to spend time with my friend and her family. Her two kids are my godchildren. It was an awesome week with them – playing, doing story telling, strolling, etc. Amazing time!

I just can’t wait to see them again as they come over to Vancouver by end of this month. Just grateful to see an old friend in this side of the world. 🙂

Control

Today, God reminded me that in wherever place we may be, there will always be a crooked and perversed generation. That’s why He commanded us, His children to be a light of the world.

I’ve been struggling with people recently that I stored in my heart a lot of negative emotions. I realized that there will always be people that could test pur character. The sad part is we can never have the power to change them. What we can only control is how we respond to them – our heart.

I pray that from this day onwards, I will press on to be a light and not to put God in shame.

Fear of the Lord is indeed the beginning of knowledge and wisdom.

Philippians 2:14-15 said to stop grumbling but instead prove that we His children are blameless that we may be a light to this crooked generation. To be like Jesus is what God has wanted us to be.

Teach

I saw a video today posted in Facebook which is still related to the shooting in Connecticut, a news personality answering the question where was God during that time? I can’t help but get teary-eyed. I realized that some kids might have never heard about Jesus.

Video:  Where was God?

One of the things I’m always grateful to my parents is that they made sure we came to know God as we grow up. It allowed us to seek God more and walk in His ways.  As for me, it’s the best thing any parent could do to their children.

I was reminded by these verses in Deuteronomy 6:5-8.

” Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts.  Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.  Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads.  Write them on the door frames of your houses and on your gates.”

It’s time we truly care for the next generation, parent or not.
