Delighting

I’ve been delighting in our children lately…

Kai’s morphing into a regular Chinese student. You should hear his very local accent! “Mom, that not’s not how you say it!” And “Mom, how do they know we’re not Chinese?” Makes me smile. A delighted smile.

Malia is the “ban zhang” of her preschool class; the class leader. She takes it very seriously! She a delightful little girl in every way; shuffling around in high-heeled shoes and princess dresses. She’s discovered how to cross her eyes (ouch). Her silliness makes me giggle, most days. And I love she’s taking seriously the message to be pretty on the inside first, then the outside.

Kian is a perfectionist and makes sure he’s not left out; it’s a stressful combination. He can sing lyrics to songs that I have hard time remembering. He deserves the nickname Mr. Smiles. He’s fun to be with. His Bucher uncles (Kenton and Kristofer) were a few years older than Kian when I first met them. He reminds me of them for some reason.

I often forget that I’m delighted in, too.
Zeph 3:17
For the Lord your God is living among you.
He is a mighty savior.
He will take delight in you with gladness.
With his love, he will calm all your fears.
He will rejoice over you with joyful songs.”
