I am still not well with runny nose, probably not enough sleep. Somehow last week and this week, I have been busy, not with my kids. They are now very independent, most of the time.
I had to cover for someone at work, taking his stuff and some of his work is new to me. I need to learn from him. He has been in the company for more than 30 years now. Most ang mo in my company is very loyal. Well he deserves a break, a long overdue one. He will retire soon and I may be his succession. Not a good week to backup him…..
I am also running my church Sunday School with 60-80 kids. Frankly, I found more joy working for God. The reward is measureless, if you know what I mean. Last week, I had to do a group lesson and this week prepare for Easter Special. With kids, you really have to be creative. Often, I run out of ideas to make the Bible lessons more interesting. I thank God, every time my creative bank runs dry, He will fill it up.
I am also glad I have a lot of supportive teachers who also help me to make the Sunday School great for the kids. Every month there is a event to organize, Jan – Opening For The Year, Feb – CNY Special, Mar – Picnic, Apr – Easter Special, May – Mother’s Day and Jun – Father’s Day. Pray for me that I have the strength to continue.
I had to prepare 80 kites pattern, goodies bag and ice-cream for Easter. These few nights I have been burning midnight oil, some days until 3-4am to finish it all.
Today was enjoyable, the Easter Special brought lots of laughter to the children because the invited guest teacher was fun and he made learning FUN! I wished I have some of his talents. Next I thought the children how to make a kite. A kite to spread God’s word. The children all had fun and they learn what Easter is all about. It is not about rabbit or eggs or chocolate.
Good Friday is about Jesus who died on the cross for our sins. Easter is about how God, the Father raised Jesus from dead, now he is alive. Because he is alive, those who believe in Him will have eternal life and will be raised up like Him. Simply Amazing.
