Jacob’s confirmation ceremony

The Archbishop delivered a very good homily about how the confirmed children should take care to choose good friends in life and to stay close to Jesus. As he anointed the children on their foreheads with the holy oil, he said, “Peace be with you.” I felt a deepening of my faith in his joyful presence and sincerely asked God for the forgiveness of my sins in my prayers.

Another pious and enlightening moment almost like this took place at our family dinner table one evening after I had gone to confession with Father Saju earlier in the day. When we were about to have our meal, I suddenly felt an overwhelming sense of God’s grace and thankfulness for everything as it was right there at that moment. I then felt compelled to cry because I suddenly knew I have many things to be grateful for.

About David and Lam

A smitten couple and loving parents in our early 40s. We have lived in 3 different countries together. We dream of living in a fourth country together after our children grow up. We love long walks in the woods, climbing mountains, boating, traveling, reading, and being together. Both David and Lam are old souls who love quietness and meaningful conversations in which we ponder the truth and mysteries of life as well as discuss philosophical and ethical matters. We especially like to enjoy the small pleasures of daily life.
