Highlights of the Day
- Today was a great day. After three weeks of not being able to attend church service, I was finally back. I had been struggling spiritually lately. Church service plays a very important role in my spiritual life. There is something powerful inside the building, surrounded by church family, singing my heart out at worship, listen to the teaching, and much more. The church atmosphere is very contagious. It gives me the sense of peace and joy deep within my soul. Seeing beautiful smiles, shaking hands and saying hello, hearing praise reports, lifting up my voice to heaven for prayer requests from church members, seeing familiar faces—they are food to my soul. It feels so good to be back home.
Moreover, I was so grateful to see a friend who I have not seen in a while. I am happy to know what is going on with her life, and I am hoping I will see her every Sunday.
- Felicia asked me several times today if I can play with her. I was working something for my online store and told her to wait a little bit. I like it when she bugs me about playing with her. I need a reminder for it. I normally don't play with them. I normally don't ask them with my own accord if they want to play with me. I don't know why. I am not intentional about it. Makes me feel guilty as their Mom. This is one area that I need more grace of.
We ended up playing after dinner in their bedroom with her Ate. It's funny that she named two of her dinosaurs after our pastors 😂. I took videos of them. We laughed so much, until it was almost time for bed and I asked her about her wiggly tooth. I wanted to pull it out. Explained to her about my concerns and she just cried and cried. She's so scared about getting hurt. She even asked me to pray over her about it. That poor baby, her tears were racing after another without stopping. Her Daddy and I talked to her and made sure that her heart was at peace before she went to bed. New day tomorrow, something needs to be done.
