J Summary (4Y9M7D) - Little Blessing from God

J tidied the big commforter all by himself

Like most kids, J always has to be nudged to get dress, make his bed and prepare his own breakfast. For the past mornings, it had always been a struggle.

This morning I woke up, J told Daddy that he wanted to give me a surprise. J closed his bedroom door. He got dressed and made his bed. I usually helped him with the big comforter, and he usually tidies up the baby blanket and pillow, but today, he tidied up the big adult-size comforter himself. He had been a very sweet and sensible little boy.

I was very touched and I told him that it was the best present that he has given to Mommy. And I thank God for this blessing, which money cannot buy.

The burdens of life at work lately have weighed down my heart.... and in this seemingly never-ending tunnel, God sent pockets of lights like silver linings in the clouds from J to cheer my heart. I have to remember this. Thank you God, and please forgive me for all my complaints.

Though we may not always know the reasons why, one thing I know, this trial has deepened my relationship with my Significant Other and connected us deeper emotionally. His empathy, his comfort, his listening, his arms around my shoulders. Without this trial, I wouldn't have experienced the sweetness of comfort from my closest loved ones. So even in tough trials, God's blessings are shining through, even as I continue to pray and cry out to God for His deliverance. And even though I wish God will take away all the struggles and hardships I am currently bearing, I will not trade it for my deepest longing for my Significant Other and J to know God personally.

In the midst of my pains, I thank God for His truely priceless peace and joy, that He had given me through my family. And I trust that He will deliver me and show me the way in His time.

I will continue to cling on to Psalms 37:1-28 and remember God's little blessings to me and be encouraged:

Do not fret because of evil men
or be envious of those who do wrong;
for like the grass they will soon wither,
like green plants they will soon die away.
 
Trust in the LORD and do good;
dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture.
Delight yourself in the LORD
and He will give you the desires of your heart.
 
Commit your way to the LORD;
trust in Him and He will do this:
He will make your righteousness shine like the dawn,
the justice of your cause like the noonday sun.
 
Be still before the LORD and wait patiently for him;
do not fret when men succeed in their ways,
when they carry out their wicked schemes.
 
Refrain from anger and turn from wrath;
do not fret - it leads only to evil.
For evil men will be cut off,
but those who hope in the LORD will inherit the land.
 
A little while, and the wicked will be no more;
though you look for them, they will not be found.
But the meek will inherit the land
and enjoy great peace.
 
The wicked plot against the righteous
and gnash their teeth at them;
but the Lord laughs at the wicked,
for he knows their day is coming.
 
The wicked draw the sword
and bend the bow
to bring down the poor and needy,
to slay those whose ways are upright.
But their swords will pierce their own hearts,
and their bows will be broken.
 
Better the little that the righteous have
than the wealth of many wicked;
for the power of the wicked will be broken,
but the LORD upholds the righteous.
 
The days of the blameless are known to the LORD,
and their inheritance will endure forever.
In times of disaster they will not wither;
in days of famine they will enjoy plenty.
 
But the wicked will perish:
The LORD's enemies will be like the beauty of the fields,
they will vanish - vanish like smoke.
 
If the LORD delights in a man's way,
he makes his steps firm;
though he stumble, he will not fall,
for the LORD upholds him with his hand.
 
I was young and now I am old,
yet I have never seen the righteous forsaken
or their children begging bread.
They are always generous and lend freely;
their children will be blessed.
 
Turn from evil and do good;
then you will dwell in the land forever.
For the LORD loves the just
and will not sake his faithful ones.

A very sweet and sensible boy
