Fear Not

Posted on
隆! 隆!

是因为

闪电接触云

造成

打雷

雷公

宝宝放屁是小声

下雨会有雷公

所以雷公相似宝宝放屁

宝宝不需要害怕

不用害怕

不用怕.

 

我不怕了.

Gong! Gong!

Due to

Lightning touches cloud

Leading to

Thunderous sound

Baby’s fart is quiet

Raining will cause thunder

Thunder is similar to baby’s fart

Therefore, treat thunder as rain’s fart

Do not fear, my baby

Do not fear

Fear not.

 

I will not fear.

My dad explained and comforted my toddler who is fearful of thunder whenever it occurs during the middle of the night. He shrieked in fear, begged to sleep on my bed with his dad. After the thunder had died down, either my husband or I will put him back to his cot. I shared this experience to my dad.

Upon returning home from a night class, my toddler said to me, “不害怕gong gong. Gong gong放屁”. Through his words, a poem is birthed and later on I tried to revised it and translate to English.

How many times God comforts us not to be fearful of our circumstances? Just trust in Him and go to Him in prayer. We can see God’s mighty hand in the Old Testament and in the book of the Gospel where Jesus comforts His disciples upon calming the storm (Mark 4:35-41).

Inviting Baby

Posted on

Inviting baby
Inviting ants
As the floor invites fallen crumbling biscuits.

Eyebrow frowns
Fire rises
Mouth is going to scold
Hands are going to whack
STOP!

Just invite it into our minds
Let our minds accept it.
Let the fire cools down
Let our hearts be patient.
Be calm.
This will not happen forever.
It is just a while.
One day, it will be just a memory.
A memory that will bring a smile.

Remember, we are once like them before.
How do our parents react?
They are patient.

Upon observing ants took the fallen crumbling biscuits on the floor, suddenly the words, “Inviting ants” came to my mind. As I wrote it down, the above first paragraph came to my mind. Knowing that it is not completed, I kept on returned to it until 11 November the above piece is finally completed.

Why do I use the word “invite”? When we give birth, it is where we invite our babies from our womb to this world. As babies are still learning, we need to be patient with them. Whenever they eat by themselves, some food or biscuits may fell onto the ground. We ever went through that process, but had forgotten it. My mother is someone whom I admire and respects the most because she teaches and guides me with patience since young until adulthood. I thank the Lord for such a mother and I’m thankful and grateful for her time and effort.

The apostle Paul mentioned in his epistle for his gratefulness to those who labour for the sake of the gospel, which can be found in the book of Romans chapter 16.

Before My Patience

Before my patience runs dry
I withhold it
Pray to God
Bring it to the Lord Most High
Seek His Spirit to empower me
To overcome
To calm down
To give me a clear mind

As I was feeding my baby, suddenly the word, “Before my patience runs dry” came to my mind due to my baby kept on refusing to eat it for a few times then willing to eat it. So I pray about my feelings then the above inspiration comes.
