1. Lost & found. Sunday morning, I happened to be given a chance to welcome and get to know two first-timers in church. One of the girls described herself as feeling “lost”, and we discussed in length how we can find direction and purpose if only we would let God take over our lives. And then I prayed for them. At the end of our prayer, they both attested to accepting Jesus Christ as their Lord & Savior, and wanting to know Him more. It struck me what this “lost” girl said, that she still doesn’t know what she’s supposed to be or what the future has for her, but at least now she knows for Whom everything is supposed to be and Who holds the future. I guess she’s not that lost after all.
2. Catching up. With family and friends volunteering to watch over the twins on Sundays, I was able to take a break last Sunday and catch up with some of my friends. Lately it feels like I’ve been away for a long time and clueless about what’s happening around. It’s good to finally get some updates on what everyone is up to. I love that it allowed me to zoom out for a moment and see in a bigger perspective how God is constantly working in everyone’s lives.
3. Sunday nights. The babies were tucked in early and I had no work to do. Husband and I camped out in the living room to watch some movies and just enjoy the night. This is our life now, we keep telling ourselves these days. Which is usually followed by us smiling like lovesick highschoolers who still sometimes can’t believe that this is our life. Ending and starting something—a day, a week, a month, a year—with the one you love makes you feel this certain warmth that just.. never gets old.
