Read: Exodus 2:2. The scripture talks about The Birth of Moses.

1. Perception for our children. If you perceive something as special, you’re going to take care of it.
2. Protection.
3. Preparation.

For kids;
Honor your parents.
Being smarter doesn’t mean wiser.

For parents;
Guide your children. Perceive for them, protect them and prepare them to see the world.

The Birth of Moses.

For today’s service Brothers and Sisters, We tackled about the next generations. The youth in our present times.

1. Pray for the next generation.
2. Dedicate the next generation to God.
3. Mentor the next generation.

So the picture attached here is my note about todays message. We love to do things our way, little do we know that one of the kids look up to us and may be, just maybe, we influence them. In order for us to have a better future, we always do what works for us.

The kids might be the next politician, the next Doctor, or whatever the endeavor may be, we should consecrate oursleves first before God. Then the next generation will follow our footsteps and be just like us.

I am a mother of 2 and I want them to serve God and have faith so as to move mountains.

I want them to be good and be that as their lifestyle. I want kindness to be their religion and God their hero, their strenght.

I want them to do best in whatever they choose to become someday. I am definitely not a good example. So please help me God.

I will end this message in a prayer.

I pray to you Lord God, my savior, to help me be the best example for everyone to see. Be my eyes when I can’t see rightly. Be my feet when I can’t walk away from evil. Be my mind when I think I cannot get through a battle, remind me that I can and my faith is strong,no one can defeat me. Be my heart when I can’t love the unlovable. Help me forgive. Help me forget. Help me to be strong. I pray this in humility, in faith. I will believe in your will. I will believe in your words. I will live in accordance to Your will. In Your name, Jesus. Amen.

The thing about being mommy..
I am not so sure about you but yes, I am scared.

My kids are independent and day after day, they no longer need my assistance. I have a seven year old daughter and a four year old son.

How could they grow up so fast that they no longer need me when they wear their clothes? How could they not need me when they wear their shoes?.

It makes me sad. Knowing that my kids are schooling and they get to discover the world outside our home.

What if they like to be with friends than be with me? What if they will spend too much time outside and not see me?

There are times, I wonder if I have ever been a good mother to them. I am not even a good provider because I don’t know how to manage my salary. I am basically learning the motherhood thing. If not my mom, I don’t know what to do.

I know someday I’ll let them go. But it makes me cry and I’m only thinking about it now.

If you are going to ask me, as a mother, if I can let them be the person they are, yes. I can, but It scares me knowing how cruel this world can be.
It scares me knowing that my babies will experience failures and Yes, it scares me, whatever the question is about mommyhood and letting them be kids.

Proverbs 22:6 – Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.

I remember posting about 100 Happy Days. And this is one of the best reason to be happy all the time.

My mom is one of the victims. Lol.
Kidding aside, my mom may or may not have any idea but I really appreciate what she does for me and my kids.

Without her, I don’t know.
Not that my kids are bad or bullies. They are the best. I guess my mom did a great job. Or I did. 😛

“I hope someday she meets just the right man and has babies – a whole passel of babies, more than I could have – so she understands how it kills me now that she won’t let me hug her when she’s in obvious distress. (The Life You’ve Imagined)”

Juana,

I know it’s hard for you to understand now how I treat you as a daughter. You know, when it comes to you, I am such a frustrated mother.

You are so wise and patient. You always try to see the good side of things. And with that, I am happy.

You love me and that kind of love is something I know for myself I don’t deserve. There are times I get mad at you and I nag at you. You have no idea why.

My precious, I love you with all that I am.
Please forgive me if I get mad and you think I want you to be perfect.

I only want you to be so powerful, no guy can ever break you.

I want you to respect yourself and trust that people, regardless of who they are, can break you.. And I don’t want that to happen. God knows I’ll kill for you.

I thank the Lord above for bringing you to me. You were born with 60 chances of dying and 40 to live.

But you lived.

You are a survivor.

As your mother, I don’t want you to just survive.
I need you to conquer.
Don’t let people decide for you. Don’t let them hurt you. Like they did to me.
I don’t want you to suffer the same pain I suffered.
I don’t want you to feel rejected and hated.

You are a grown up with a big heart.
You love making friends and people loves you, that I can see.

I will not be surprised one day, you will ask permission to go out with friends.
Please choose wisely, the people you want to be part of your wonderful world.

I want you to live in a world where you are free. Make your dreams come true for mine’s shattered.

No one in this world can ever know how much love I have for you.
Please forgive me for all my shortcomings.
Forgive me for my irresponsibilities.

Forgive me, my precious.

Oh dear.

Mr. Bean, and Miley Cyrus. Wow!

Such a big No No for me.

Not to watch Mr. Bean is my number 1 rule for my children. It doesn’t just require Parental Guidance. It should be Parental Restriction.

 

Why do they show this on tv when all it does is plain stupidity.

It is not entertaining at all.

In every episode I have gone to see, all it tells me is “I am stupid, don’t watch.”

 

And Miley Cyrus. Wow I loved her.

She’s a living proof that pain can change people. And she did. In a different manner.

I can’t blame her for that.

My kids love her.

But they are restricted to watching her music videos showing how screwed she is.

I downloaded her songs and let my kids listen and adore her.

Do you ever feel the same?

I didn’t post this just so I can offend someone who looks at it differently.
