Rise up

36. Kerygma Lenten Recollection
Last year, my mom started joining us in the Feast through KLR. Since then, our relationship was healed and became even better! 

This year's KLR gave me the much needed retreat from all the hassles of giving birth, mothering a toddler and a newborn, and being a wife to Totskie. Somebody gave us free VIP tix so we were seated near the stage, and so the worship was intense! I also got to serve by writing an article for the bulletin. Hay praise God for LOJ!

37. Yes, Light of Jesus Ministry. 
So blessed to be part of this community. I feel so at home and loved. Hope our family can serve more when the kids are older. 

38. Prophecies. 
The Feast builders delivered some prophecies during the KLR. I felt that two are mine-I'll be a best-selling author and a person I love will change and serve God big time!

39. Time at home.
Finally, we're home. Finally cleaned the house, washed dishes and bottles, fixed and washed clothes, among other tasks.

40. Karis learned to use a milk bottle.
That means liberation!

To Grow Everyday

Just watched a video about a mom saying that she'll strive to know God everyday so she can be a better mom for her child. And it hits me to the core. Tears are now falling from my eyes. 

Every night, Katy and I pray together. Our prayer goes like this:

Dear God,
Thank You for this day. 
Thank You for Mommy, Daddy, and Baby Karis.
Thanks for the love that we share.
Thank you for the food that we eat, the house that we live in, and for all the people who love us.
Please forgive us from our sins, and change us to be better persons.
May Your angels be by our side to protect us and guide us.
May we always be healthy and strong.
We pray that may we all grow to love You more than anyone and anything in this world. Amen.

The last line is my favorite. I always say it with full conviction. And the video just told me to work on my relationship with God everyday so I can be the mom that I've dreamed to be and the wife that will bless my marriage.
