Living life God's way with parents

"Would be better to call your mum first to tell her that you're going home soon"

Am reminded once again on how gracious God had been to me in terms of my relation with my mum: the truth about how we should live our family lives, the understanding and conviction that comes only through the Spirit, and even though I had no idea how to go about things, God provided a sister who's able to help me learn. (and is still helping me in various ways)

Now, even though things have improved somewhat as compared to when I started on this, I've still a long way to learn and to improve in relating better to my mum. Not for the sake of being a 'good' person, not for the sake of living life with less stress from home, but simply because this is the only way to live: in thankful obedience to the God who made us and saved us in Christ.

Although I'll never be able to honour my mum perfectly as we were supposed to, but I hope and pray that with God's help, this may also come to be the means through which she understands clearly what it means to be a Christian.
