Not everything so sweet, but God's merciful patience!

Do you know those days that end not in the best note?... those days that you go to bed and you are upset at your words and the way your day ended with your kids?.. The other day, was one of them for me.. One of my boys misbehaved, I was upset, the boys and husband, all seemed like a big stir of emotions, and not necessarily the best of all or the ones I'm proud to write about. The condition of my heart and my son's heart.. the attitudes and the rest. We ended our day, not with our heart giving God all the glory and living the witness that we were called to. Well, par of me was happy that in a way, I could just close my eyes and say good night to that end of the day. even though there was repentance and forgiveness before going to bed.. it just seemed that I was not happy with the way it ended. The next morning, we had breakfast, had our Bible study and prayed together after breakfast. The son that was disrespectful the night before, prayed saying: "....Thank you God, that my life did not end yesterday when I was being disrespectful to my parents, and that You are giving me another day to repent and change, please help me to obey you in all I do today, Amen".
I was quiet, and then prayed God for the same thing. Thank You for your new mercies every morning. It is clear in my life and in my son's life, that God's purposes are wonderful! even when we sin, God is patient with us and merciful!. There is hope in Christ every morning, not that our salvation was lost because we sinned, but that we have a new day by God's grace to live a life in a way that is glorifying to Him.

Lead by example

I always wanted to know how to play the piano. My two boys of course are taking piano lessons because I see how good it would be for them to know how to play it properly and one day "thank me" for making them practice faithfully every day. Well, practice time, is not the most exciting time of the day here at my house.... They practice, because they must (usually one is more interested than the other, but both of them would rather play outside!). I have been trying to help them find a motivation to get excited about it and well...... I asked my well educated kids, to teach their mother to play the piano. They know enough theory and have enough ability, to teach their mother. It will be great to anchor that knowledge in their minds by teaching someone, it will be good to make teachers out of these boys. Now I need to persevere and practice, practice and practice. They are SO excited to teach me, to see me practice, when I ask them questions, being faithful even when I find the homework they give me is not that exciting, like memorizing scales, memorizing where the notes are on the keyboard and the "lines" when you read the music sheet. It is all hard work for me, it is not easy to find the time to practice every day for half an hour besides my daily work of school, house keeping, taxi services, ... it is not exciting some days.... but I hope that in my perseverance and with God's help I will learn from my kids to play the piano.
I'll keep you posted on my progress!...

All is a gift

All is a gift, I have come to learn, I earned nothing, No one owes me anything!, My family, my house, my clothes, my friends, all is a gift from God. For all of these gifts I am forever grateful to God. Anything good that happens, a great family, a godly husband, kids that love the Lord, any kind word, any hug, any help, a good friend, a time alone, a visit from family from Mexico, a nice meal, a date with my husband, a good laugh, nice weather, home school, .. all are gifts from God, all the rest is extra . and yet, all of it, nothing comes even close to the salvation that He has given me and His precious Word renewing my mind with His truth every day. How blessed I am! How blessed I am to have Him!. All the rest..... are undeserved gifts.

My kids are growing up faster than I would like them to. They are able to stay at home alone for a short period of time, they are busy with school but in a more independent way every year, they can bike to a library, they can play for many hours without my assistance... they are growing up!. I feel happy when I see them, when I see them as great boys, kind to each other (most of the time), fearful of God, and respectful to their parents. I am proud of them, I'm happy who they are turning into.

At the same time, it brings me a whole lot of different emotions that I feel very nervous about. I have more time for other things.. I have the time to do my necklaces and to use that time wisely or idle. I have those thoughts coming often lately, a little concerned about WHAT AM I GOING TO DO WHEN THEY NEED ME NO MORE!... what am I going to do!!. I have a career that I am no longer up to date, I'll have free time...I need to start focusing now in the things I want to do after they are gone. What are my abilities, what can I do to keep my mind occupied, I really fear "not having things to do", I want my years to be industrious and busy, I do not want to waste my life.

All those things that also bring me to the thoughts of: how do I install that passion in my kids to help them to start to focus on what they are good at and what they enjoy... so they can be industrious men too. How do I teach them that, so that they won't be idle teens and adults.

There is so much ahead of my life, challenges and training of my mind and my kids, learning and praying, trusting instead of being anxious, being wise instead of foolish, and .. did I mention praying?, praying... that is what my life needs to become more and more.. a praying mother.
