We celebrated hubby’s birthday this evening. His birthday falls on 3rd March, that is tomorrow. Because it’s Sunday today, I thought we could enjoy a nice meal with parents not working and the children not schooling. Chris said, “In fact, it’s papa’s birthday today. Remember it’s leap year, we have one extra day in February!” How smart! Like father like son?
Last year, I invited hubby’s sister and family to dinner. I wrote,
The birthday meal has been prepared with the feelings of love, acceptance, security, peace, fellowship, joy, satisfaction, thankfulness, fulfillment and fullness of life!
In 2006, I wrote an engineer story,
One day, Rachel asked, “Daddy, you say you are an engineer, why is it that mummy always repairs the faulty things and fixes the bulbs?” To which the daddy answers, “Engineer instructs, technician fixes.”
To the engineer, thank you for allowing me to experiment with all that’s in life within the engineer’s instructions, giving me significance, giving me the space to grow all these 20 years!
Added on this year in 2008?
While still “engineering” and giving the technician space to grow, thank you, also for respecting the technician’s privacy that carries so much love, trust, respect and honesty!
I have been reminded of this song looking at the picture –
Turn your eyes upon Jesus,
Look full in His wonderful face,
And the things of earth will grow strangely dim,
In the light of His glory and grace.
