A value I would like to instill in my boys I have learned in reference to one of my favourite scriptures:
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 – Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
I would like to teach my children to pray without ceasing; not because I have perfected this skill in my own life but because I think it is so important that I would like it to be considered ‘normal’ for them to always be looking to God with a thankful heart and life guidance. This priority to teach is a reminder to me to be more aware of all the moments I need to refocus and look to God.
Today, as I walked up the stairs, to prepare dinner in anticipation of daddy’s arrival home on an extremely cold, snowy evening, I said, “Please bring daddy home safely, Thank you God.” The little voice five steps behind me says, “Nkou God.”(re-enactment)
It was a sweet moment for mommy, worth savouring on her blog.
1) Six months ago Thank you was a two syllable word but it is so familiar now, we’re down to a one syllable word – Nkou.
2) Nkou means Thank you and is not an acronym or reference to a term in another language.
