Being a Mom is my life long dream.
Now that it’s so close to fulfillment, I still couldn’t consider myself to be 100% qualified for the job. I just haven’t figured it out yet. Was there anyone ever prepared for this?
“God is in the details.”
– Ludwig Mies van der Rohe
Little did I know that a famous architect’s dictum I followed when I was young now speaks to my dialogues to our dear Father.
“It is like a mustard seed, which is the smallest of all seeds on earth.
Yet when planted, it grows and becomes the largest of all garden plants,
with such big branches that the birds can perch in its shade.”
We’ll be handed with our own tiny seed very soon. We’re not completely sure if our garden is ready, but we are always, always asking for guidance to enable us to become gardeners worthy of a fruitful tree.
This year is for Selfless Discoveries.
I never considered myself as a volunteer-type, never ever comfortable to be the first person to raise my hand when someone asks for help, unless personally approached. I’d always take time to test the waters before jumping in.
This 2018 will be very different.
Hot or cold, stepping back is not an option.
“Una vida con medio es como la vida medias.”
A life lived in fear is a life half lived.
Imagine a life already written, printed and bounded, a life you already knew, a life you can control, it was the life I wanted back then. I am guilty of being a control freak. I liked to live my life the way I wanted and liked it even more when everyone goes my way. It was how I liked it but I never loved it. All the anxiety, pressure, and panic did a lot to get the job done but it never did any good to myself, and sometimes even to the people around me. It was a leap of faith that brought me courage and just live how God wanted it to be, how?
