Endless Gifts Hidden in Everyday's Life

 4.10.10

Now our routine is set; we have been doing school for a month now, we know the dance, the rhythm; we feel comfortable with our new classes, our new schedule; and here, in the center of our everyday's  life, I have learned to stop and see, and ponder, and thank my God for all those gifts hidden behind our simple routine, our "normal" days. And I give thanks.



787. The light hut project, which is teaching us more than plants and seeds; it is helping us learn patience. Seeds need warmth, air and water to grow; we need patience.

788. Saying yes, to muffins.

789. Gathering my children in the afternoon and enjoy a nice talk and chocolate ice-cream with them.

790. The cellphone when you get lost in the streets.

791. My friend on the other end of the line patiently guiding me.

792. I am thankful I had a beautiful answer when someone asked me, "How do your children get along? Do they fight all day ?"No, I am so happy I answered "No, they truly love each other and enjoy being together". 


793. My children building a huge tent with pillows and blankets and sleeping in it to make their little sister happy, I am grateful because they are always patient with our little one.

794. Museums.

795. Two families, one nice afternoon, the sound of bagpipes.

796. Kelly, her patience to explain me one more thing!

797. Daddy and daughter and an old guitar. A new challenge, a new opportunity to create memories, a new way to be trained in patience.


798. Her little kisses, and soft hair. She is growing but I can still hold her.

799. Hear her say -every time we are ready to sit at the table- "I go besides Mommy"


800. My husband's words.



   Oh give thanks to the Lord; call upon his name;

make known his deeds among the peoples!

  Sing to him; sing praises to him;

tell of all his wondrous works!

  Glory in his holy name;


let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice!

 Seek the Lord and his strength;


seek his presence continually!

  Remember the wondrous works that he has done,


his miracles and the judgments he uttered...

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."

-Persis

“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
