Misc.

…I went down for nap with Alethia this afternoon.  Slept for an hour, and it is very refreshing.  Even though I still have that “guilty” feeling before I fell asleep, I am definitely energized when I woke up.  I yet have to figure out what is that “guilty” feeling and tackle with it.

…This morning after breakfast, I practiced walking with Sophia.  She did make several steps from the table to me without holding onto anything.  I just enjoyed seeing the satisfied smile on her.  She is proud of herself, and apparently she loves the feeling of being able to walk.  My cute baby…I can just stare at her and do nothing the whole day, and she knows how to melts your heart!

Today’s reminder

As important as it is for us to offer worship to God through our songs and prayers, we need to worship him by making sure that our relationships are right as well.

(Levi 6, Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount)

操練

In Leviticus, there are long passages saying about different kinds of offering.

I have been reading about sin offering these 2 days.

It is not about the materials.  It is more than this.

Offering is a kind of practice, a kind of discipline – a training to submissiveness, a kind of action that brings out deeper meaning than what you offer upon to the Lord.

I pray that I don’t read and stop at just seeing all the tedious steps of different kinds of offerings.  Help me understand what’s behind it.

Tired of saying no…?

唔知點去形容呢種感覺

有無試過 say no 次數多到好掹掙?

在想,因乜有呢種感覺?

出於好意的關心、為你設想的安排及建議,卻帶來喘不過氣來的壓迫。

點先能化解這溝通的不對位?不至令好心者感到拒諸門外,自己又能從容面對而不感厭煩呢?

… …一大學問也!

唉!

With no regret

On Nov 7 2010, first day of winter time,  I decided to drop Sophia’s very last feeding on breast.  It came easier than thought.  I have to admit that, it is a harder time for mommy to let go than the baby.

With no regret as a mom that I am able to enjoy breastfeeding with this second baby, things that I would never have imagined when I had with Alethia.  I am truly thankful regardless all those marathon feedings in the beginning, or the infections in the later months.  Really, nothing more to ask for.

Be still and know that I am God

~ Space ~ Stillness ~ Quietness ~ Shhhh…. ~ Deep breath ~

Words cannot quite express my feeling these days.

My thoughts go much quicker than my mouth or my typing.

Often times when I try to sit down and put down what’s been wandering in my mind, I feel overwhelmed.  I feel that there are so much in my mind that I don’t have that energy to put everything down.

I need to slow down.  I need to speak only things that matters.  I speak so much and so fast that sometimes even I found myself nosy.

One of my dearest sister was in town last week.  How she chooses to spend her time inspires me.  She makes wise choices.

Another girlfriend called and we shared deep on the phone.  Tears dropped not because of what she said but God’s presence.

God loves me.  I finally allow myself the space and freedom to acknowledge it.

…到我處來,我要使你得安息。…

In 2 different rooms

This morning, while I was sitting in the dining room enjoying my breakfast, Alethia was in another room reading stories to her little baby doll.

She is growing up.  And  I think this also marks her being secured enough to stay away from mommy.   I welcome this growth of independence so that mommy can have a moments of transquility.
