More Than Words


In less than 2 weeks, my children will be back.

It will be another productive and fun time for all of us.

The home will be cosy and warm again, bursting with life, love and joy.

It will be another learning, sharing and growing experiences for all of us.

There is so much to discuss and decide; just about any topic under the sun.

Waiting for holiday season like this always fills me with anticipation and delight.

The home has been getting quieter and quieter with each passing moment.

Sometimes I just looked at my wife and smiled, rather lonely and bored.

Adam wanted a partner and God gave Eve as his wife, and a family to take care of.

Some has said that contentment in life comes with living less with oneself and more for others.

Maybe all of us are born for one another, and for doing good things together.

A time of gathering and celebrating will certainly spur us on to greater wisdom, understanding and compassion.

All the waiting will be worth it to the end.

We have seen our children grow and change, find romance or earn promotions, and go off in new and interesting territory, and it is all for the better.

All the worries and frustrations that have accompanied us have slowly disappeared, when we come to realize that they are in good hands, that our Almighty God is taking good care of them.

I smile with a hearty smile; I am satisfied with everything around.

And I close my eyes and enjoy a moment of peace and tranquility.

There are many things in life that are more than just words, and it will take time and effort to understand and appreciate each one of them.

And yes, more than words....... I smile... and smile again.
