Because we named our son Noah AND I was not in the meeting when the speakers for a series of church activities was discussed, I was assigned to speak about the life of… Noah (from the bible). ? Sharing with you here some of my notes.
We named our son Noah because the bible says Noah (the one who built the ark) was a righteous man, blameless in his generation and that he walked in close fellowship with God (Genesis 6:9). Who wouldn’t want that for their child? Basically, we 1) want our Noah to have a personal relationship with God and walk in close fellowship with Him, 2) declare that Noah will do great things for God, even things that seem impossible, through God’s direction, favor, provision, and grace, and 3) that Noah’s faith and obedience to God will flow from his heart to his life. That’s basically the legacy of the life of Noah (from the bible). You can read more about our dear Chadric Noah here.

Seed to sow. Bread to eat. Sow and reap. Give and be generous. If you have sown, you can expect to reap. And during the waiting time, God provides, too!
It took me eleven months to come to terms with the fact that this adjusting to mommyhood won’t ever end, and that it’s part of the joys of life. ?
If we need to hold their hands so they can stand, we will, and we must, until the time comes when they can do so on their own. To stand. To walk. To run.
As I’ve mentioned in my previous post, I’ve always been asking God for humility and a pure heart. The opposites are just too easy to fall into: it’s so easy to be swayed to arrogance and not notice when pride seeps in, and it’s easier to turn the eye away and move on with my own…
I started this 21-Day Bible Reading Plan yesterday today (still working my way through attending to my newborn) and I wanted to share what struck me most from Day 1.
