Inspirational Mondays - "Refresh"


Aloha Ohana!

I hope everyone had a lovely weekend. This past week was such an amazing week for me as a mom and 1 I will never forget. Munchkin # 1 went on a field trip to the Big Island which is about a 35 min flight from here. He was gone for THREE days!! I thought I was gonna die. lol. I prayed like I've never prayed before. God laid some serious peace over me because I really thought I would panic more than I did. lol Don't get me wrong, I trained up my kids well but not being able to read to him, say prayers with him, talk to him or give him hugs n kisses really sucked. ;) His last day there he told me he was ready to come home and that touched my heart. He was sweet enough to buy us all souvenirs from his trip when he didn't have to nor did we ask for anything. I was so happy to have him home and I'm really glad he got this experience. It's one I'm sure he'll never forget and the stories he told us about his trip were priceless.

I was then privileged to attend munchkin # 2's 1st piano recital. :) This is a HUGE deal because anyone who knows him knows he is the shyest little boy ever and has actually cried at the thought of being in front of an audience or being left alone in a room with other people unless we were around him. He fell in love with the idea of playing piano last year and started in December. The growth that he's shown in his self confidence and being more open is tremendous. I was so tickled to see him play. I'll share more pics/videos about them in upcoming posts so stay tuned for that...

It was a little bittersweet because hubby didn't get to experience any of these lovely moments firsthand but we made sure to document it well for him.

I'm just over the moon and so grateful that God has blessed me with these boys and I pray that he'll continue to use me to plant/nourish the seeds of faith, fear and love for him in them.

Well, enough about my weekend. lol. I read this message and thought it was perfect to share because I now make it a point that as soon as I wake up every morning, before I even jump out of bed, I talk to God. Even if it's to say "I love you God" or "Thank you for this day God." I know it's short but at least I feel like I can start my day better by recognizing the one who allowed me to wake up each day.

Today's message is:

"Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in you. Show me the way I should go for to you I lift up my soul" Psalm 143:8

Have a blessed and prosperous week everyone!

Mahalo for stopping by :)

  1. Isn't it hard watching them go away! I'm glad God gave you piece to deal with it. It sounds to me like he's already got the gift of giving. What a great message!
