We Are Thankful For Our Children

By Ianpassion
Time flies!

Abba says that our children are heritage and reward from Him (Psalm 127:3). Yes indeed, they are! That truth is totally different from the existing ideas around us. For them, their children are their property but for us, our children are our heaven's gift. So we cherish our children more than we own them.

The Journey of Fatherhood Reflection

By Ianpassion
My son Nemi was hiking with me at Kaew Mae Pan, Chiangmai, Thailand

I am always contemplating how I can dedicate my best time to my children while they are still young. One day, they will embark on their own paths, pursuing their dreams and starting their own families.
I am reflecting on the profound impact of spiritual values in our culture and homes. Ephesians 6:4 advises fathers, saying, "Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord."

Here are some questions that I find worth pondering:

1. What causes our children to become angry and disrespectful towards their fathers?

2. How can fathers discipline their children in a way that is understood as an expression of love and earns their respect?

3. How can fathers incorporate the teachings of the Lord into their children's upbringing?

I have witnessed elderly individuals who carry deep regrets about their past mistakes. They yearn to rectify the wrongs they committed, but sadly, it remains an unfulfilled dream. Instead, they must face the consequences until their last breath in this world.

In the Kingdom of our Almighty Father, I strongly believe that fatherhood holds great significance. A father who is committed to nurturing his children is unwavering in his dedication, offering them his time, resources, and love. On the other hand, whoever lacks fathering qualities tends to exert control over his children. He manipulates rather than guides them, and his followers become mere performers, akin to slaves.

The Almighty Father finds immense joy in dining and spending time with His children. He cherishes those moments when they can freely converse without formalities or hidden agendas. His happiness knows no bounds when He witnesses His children feeling at ease and comfortable in His presence. His glory shines brightest when His children find satisfaction in Him.

Fathers Our Children Need Us Personally

It is always rewarding to see how fast our children grow and learn. They are no longer what they once were. I have found that every day is a treasure to be cherished.

Regardless of how busy or tired we are, we must always make time for our children. Digital or virtual entertainment programs should not take the place of our quality time with them. We must assist our children in connecting with reality, nature, people, and, most importantly, with our Abba Almighty.

Parenting: I Am Afraid Of Going To School

By Ianpassion

Nowadays our eldest child is acting indifferently towards her schooling. She behaves somehow opposite from last year that seems she enjoyed learning.

During school days (Monday to Friday), just this past few days every morning, after taking her meal, while wearing her uniform, and when she knows she is heading to school,  then she starts crying heavily. She does not want to go.

Parenting: What Young Fathers Must Know?

By Ianpassion

The majority of today's problems are the result of fatherless children who have never experienced affection or praise from their fathers. Fathers are extremely important in our children's emotional development.

Many studies have found that children who are estranged from their fathers misbehave the most socially and academically, and are more likely to be depressed.

Thai Children Day and My Reflection- Nurturing our Children's Spirituality

By Ianpassion

Every January 13 is a Children day in Thailand. Kids wait for this day every year. Those who are near the Prime Minister Building in Bangkok can have a chance to sit the chair of the Prime Minister. Those who are in the provinces can enjoy amusements and gifts-giving organized by each local government.

As it was our schedule to be in Hatyai (the main city in the South of Thailand), we decided to go to the airfield of the Royal Thai Air Force. There were many people. Everyone cheered when a fighter plane got wild in the sky. It sounded very loud, like rumbling and echoing the entire atmosphere. Nana and Nemi pointed up - airplane, airplane, airplane...they were so happy.
