The Enduring Companionship and Love of the Son: Lessons from My Daughter's Story

By Ianpassion

When my daughter was six years old, she wrote a story about Briya's pets. Although her English skills weren't good yet, her creativity shone through. The tale featured Tea, a dog, and Present, a rooster, who kept Briya company, echoing the assurance that she was never alone.

Reflecting on this, I saw parallels with the Son's promise to always be with us, akin to the companionship Briya found in her pets. Witnessing her connection with the Son at such a young age, expressed through her writing and drawings, filled me with awe. My hope is for her relationship with the Son to deepen as she grows.

How the Father's Love Revealed in this Christmas Season?


You might ask, what is new about the birth of the Son? It is a kindergarten story. Whatever possible reasons you have, allow me to simply elaborate on three important things about the Father's love through the birth of His Son. It is a fact that Christmas history began with the story of the Son 2,000 years ago when Rome was still in power. Some might deny this fact, but history tells us that there was a baby wrapped and placed in a manger. 

The Father demonstrated His first act of love in the Gospel stories by allowing His Son to be delivered in a stable - a place where animals are kept. It was unusual. However, The Father would not allow it without a purpose. The Son of the Almighty was placed and found by the shepherds in a manger - a wooden box that keeps grass for animals' food. Animals can come and eat in a manger whenever they feel hungry. Read more here...

Disturbing Incident Experienced By Nemi At His School

Nemi doing her homework

Last night, during dinner, my son Nemi was in tears, expressing his unwillingness to go to school. Concerned, we immediately probed the reason behind his distress. To our shock, he revealed that one of his teachers had not only shouted at him but had also resorted to physical aggression, hitting him twice with her hand. The first blow struck his back, and the second landed on his lap.

Naturally, we sought an explanation for such unacceptable behavior from the teacher. Nemi explained that he couldn't finish rewriting Thai letter activities in his book within the allotted time. Although he had diligently worked on the task and was close to completion, he couldn't keep up with the pace. The news filled me with anger, and I felt an intense rush of heat in my head. No teacher should ever treat our son or any student in such a manner.

Fostering Peaceful Relationships

My son punching bag toy 

During the first week of my children's school, my son told me about one of his classmates who always tried to cut in front of him in the lunch line. Whenever my son tried to stop him, this boy would give him this defiant look. I asked my son if this boy was older or bigger than him. He replied that he was actually smaller but looked stronger than him.


Now, here comes the funny part. I decided to give my son some advice on how to handle the situation. I told him to avoid a physical confrontation and find peaceful solutions instead. But, guess what? Later that evening, he asked if he could hang his punching bag toy. Without really thinking it through, I agreed and set it up for him. Oh boy, was that a mistake! Just a few minutes later, I walked back into the room only to find the punching bag completely destroyed. Naturally, I asked my son what happened. And you know what he said? He said, "You know, Papa, I punched it until it broke!" I couldn't help but smile and told him that he's a little Hulk in the making.
