Book Recommendations for You and Your Kids

I have been regularly going to Booksale ever since Aki was born. The sections that I love are 1) children’s books, 2) magazines 3) cookbooks and 4) parenting books. I discovered late last year on one o those nights when traffic was so bad, you’d rather wait until the mall closes before leaving, that there are other sections, waiting to be discovered.

There’s the assorted topic section. Here you’ll find books about pop culture to painting, history to horses, carpentry to cancer and many more. My last good find was for Aki. He likes science so this Weird but True by NatGeo Kids is perfect for him. Continue reading “Book Recommendations for You and Your Kids”

Almost Perfect Fridate

Happy Thursday!  Weekend is almost here.

Some days are good. Some days are bad. Some are almost perfect. The last Friday of July is one of those almost perfect days.

Each chapter is dedicated to an aspect of our husbands’ lives that we ought to pray for e.g. finances, sexuality, fatherhood, emotions, faith etc.

 

Today, I want to share one of my favorite prayers from this book.  My dad died a day after his birthday. He was out with friends. It was raining and the roads were slippery. I also heard that the driver was quite drunk.  My dad, who always sat on the passenger seat, agreed to sit on the back for some reason. The driver and the friend who sat beside him, survived the car crash. My dad was not as lucky. I can’t imagine how my mom felt and reacted after hearing the news. I was only 2 and my sister was only 10 months old.  And this is why, I get semi-paranoid when Franco tells me he is going out with friends.  This prayer is for our husbands’ protection. We can shield them from danger 24/7 but God can. Continue reading “Prayer for our Husbands’ Protection”
