As a Baby Growing in Your Arms


This lesson I learned in the kitchen of my friend. Potatoes and onions with spices were in the oven, the salad was almost ready and the men were outside taking care of the meat on the grill.

She calls herself a "gleaner".  She loves to collect wisdom from here and there and then she feeds her family with sweet morsels of wisdom. It was almost dinner time; I sat by her kitchen table and ate some of those morsels, sweet indeed, and now I would like to share them with you. Just as a good recipe, you must share the goodness...

Talking about homeschooling... the first days of school (or the first years of your homeschooling journey) are just like those days when we came home from the hospital with a beautiful baby in arms. We did not know how to handle this precious gift. We tried different schedules, different ways to hold him, we did not if we were doing things right. We were tired and overwhelmed at times. I still remember some days in which my husband will get home after work and I was still on my pj's, still waiting for the perfect time to take a shower! My arms were tired, as well as my back.

But one day, my arms were not that tired; I had managed to take showers early in the morning (all mornings) and I started to wear make-up again. 

The Lord was my strength that day and He is my strength today. He strengthen my arms in such a season, and today He is still my present help in time of need.

I don't know how He does that, but He does. He strengthens not only our arms to do what He has called us to do, but He also strengthens our soul. Day by day, through the reading of His Word, through the power of His Holy Spirit. He is God. He is able.

If I am happy it is because of God! God, in His sovereign grace, has called me out of darkness into His Admirable light. He has opened my eyes and has shown me the way to Eternal Life. He has set my feet on a journey, and now I am walking Daily on My Way to Heaven. I did not find Jesus, He found me. I did not seek Him, yet He called me. I did not love Him, yet He loved me. I deserved death and He gave me Life. This is the place where I keep a journal of my life under His sun and by His grace!

Borrowed Words

"It becomes us to spend this life only as a journey toward heaven... to which we should subordinate all other concerns of life. Why should we labor for or set our hearts on anything else, but that which is our proper end and true happiness?"

Jonathan Edwards

"I am still pondering God's greatness in His creation. I have so many questions that I would like to ask the Lord about the universe, creation, the fall of man... But when I'm in heaven, I wonder if I will even remember them. At that time, being in the presence of God will be enough. I'm thankful that I can look forward to that day."


“Heaven is not here, it’s There. If we were given all we wanted here, our hearts would settle for this world rather than the next. God is forever luring us up and away from this one, wooing us to Himself and His still invisible Kingdom, where we will certainly find what we so keenly long for.”

- Elisabeth Elliot, Keep a Quiet Heart
