Word Of The Month

The June school holidays are here but there is no “holiday mood” in Singapore. Alas, the heightened measures have thrown a curveball to disrupt our well laid-out plans. How do you respond when the unexpected happens? Some throw their hands up in despair. Others look for ways (loopholes) to circumvent the new rules.

 

I remember that we had short trips to Malaysia with our church friends when our children were young. Now that we cannot travel or go out in groups, does it mean we cannot enjoy our family and build closer bonds? Of course not! We do not have to “go places” to express love and have fun. Home is the best place to strengthen family ties. 

 

As you find yourselves at home, I encourage young families to take leave and devote time to one another.  Play games, use a Bible quiz, read a book, do craftwork or cook as a family. Those who are older can use the time to talk to other family members or give a call to friends. You are able to give focused attention to the people you love without going out or eating together.

 

Brothers and sisters, friends, do not let disappointment derail what is important.

 

God will make a way where there seems to be no way.

He works in ways we cannot see; He will make a way for me.

He will be my guide; Hold me closely to His side.

With love and strength for each new day.

He will make a way, He will make a way.

from “God will make a way” by Don Moen

 

Enjoy your family and friends!
