sit still Mom… just rest

Sometimes I forget to stop & breathe for a while… Do you ever do that? Just run & run until you crash??

Today, I had no choice but to sit still for a bit. All three of our boys are in a Christmas musical this year. I have been sitting here watching, praying & reflecting for almost 5 hours while they rehearse. Ahhh, such a nice break in routine… so why am I still worried about all the things not getting done while I just sit here??? Sigh… praying for all of us busy Mamas that find it hard to rest!!

“Come away by yourselves to a lonely place and rest a while.” -Mark 6:31

“Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.” -Psalm 46:10

While I’m waiting for the guys to finish up, let me share some pics with you from our adventures this week…

Mark took Mr. Cheng, one of our friends living a sub-divided flat, to see his new public housing flat. Afterwards they stopped in to visit Mr. Miu who has already moved in to a flat exactly the same… to get an idea of how it will look/feel with furniture. Here’s the pics. (Story/pics about Mr. Miu’s moving day.)




Mark took the guys to lunch after.


Another one of our English students completed the first book we gave her… & came back for another one during class this morning!!


Pretty cakes in the bakery window.




Musical practice today. 🙂


Finally done w rehearsal… grabbed some veggies at the street market, now heading home on the train… rest time over! Until next time, praying you get a break today too!
