Courageous

Chris and I watched the movie: Courageous today - available at Redbox for $1. We love it very much. So thankful for movies that promote good values and character.

It's a great reminder for us that God has trusted us with responsibilities to raise these previous kids and we only have few years with them. We've got to take it seriously.

Anyway, the movie reminds me of my man

To my dear sons, Max and Wes:
I hope you read this when you all grown up. All I could think of after seeing the movie was: how blessed we are to have your father.  Let me tell you a little bit about him:

*Your dad loves his family
You see daddy is good at any spots - okay except for skating or dancing maybe. Anyway, back in his younger years, it took him 1 month to master all the styles in swimming; he's good at playing badminton, table tennis and so on. Basketball is especially his favorite. He loves playing and watching the NBA. However, started when Max was born, he no longer spend much time playing or watching.
I told him, "Honey, why don't you go playing basketball, it's fine with me." But you know what daddy said? "Don't worry, I still can exercise at the office during lunch time besides I want to spend time with the kids and I know you like me to be home."

*He's a man who walk the talk
I don't know how many time he's being ridiculed for not wanting to participate in buying lottery ticket. I asked him. "How do you feel?" He said, "It's okay. I'm get used to it."
Over the years, I watch as he made decisions to speak the truth, and stand for what he believes in.



*He lead, he serve, he love. 
I pray that when you grow up, you'll be a man who fears and love the Lord, his family, and others just like Papa.

To my dear husband,
I love you and am so proud of you.
Thank you for choosing me; for leading, providing, and loving your family. As I said before it's easy to respect and follow your leadership because I know you fears the Lord, His Words, and His will above all else.
Thank you for playing, singing and reading books for the kids and hold them in your arms.
Although your perfectionist tendencies does annoy me from time to time, I can't imagine marrying anyone else but you and can't thank God enough for you.

We love you!!!!
