Letter

I wasn’t expecting a letter from them, actually. But I recognized the return address. Our past several letter exchanges had all been about one topic of great concern to both of us, so I expected this to be a follow-up. But on reading the letter, it was, instead, a gracious thank-you note for some help I had given so long ago that I had totally forgotten about it. Whether  the contents of the envelope is a thank-you  note, a letter of acceptance, or one of rejection, introduction, resignation, or recommendation, letters are a way to communicate clearly and formally an important idea.

We do it so much by e-mail now that many people are losing their ability to write beautiful cursive letters. It is still a good idea to take out a nice sheet of quality notepaper and your best fountain pen that feels good in your hand and paints a beautiful line as you brush its nib across the paper. There is something timeless about getting a carefully composed and inscribed handwritten note. For some things, e-mail just doesn’t measure up.

I wonder what kind of letter King David wrote, sealed, and then handed to Uriah the Hittite, asking him to deliver it to Joab. Perhaps it was written on coarse paper, probably with a reed brush. Whatever the case, Uriah was delivering his own death sentence. That just has to be the worst kind of letter to be carrying to your commander.

Most letters are addressed to just one individual. They may in fact be marked “confidential” to warn others away. The open letter, on the other hand, has a message of interest to all, or it has information that all need to know.

The letter being described by Paul above opens by asking if he needs a letter of recommendation and then follows by letting the reader know that he or she is in fact the letter of recommendation. That would be me and you. Paul declares, “You are a letter from Christ, known and read by all.” He goes on to add that it is not written in ink, nor on slabs of stone, but on “tablets of flesh.” I am still trying to get my mind around this. I am a letter of recommendation   for God. He has personally written His law on my heart and declares that He will be my God and I will be His person.

Lord, You mean that I am an open letter, known and read by all? Father, without the fruit of the Spirit in my heart, I am sure to blow it. Help me now.

Video Conference

How do you keep in touch with loved ones, families, relatives, and colleagues when apart? Communication is the bridge towards keeping a healthy relationship. It is also the means towards achievements and successes at work.

When apart we commonly phone our peers, relatives, families, and co-workers. Phoning is the most common way to communicate when apart. Nowadays, we also communicate through sms (commonly known as “texting”), and chat (text chat or video chat). I first enjoy video chat and later on video conference at yahoo, then with Windows Live or Aim, and lately Skype. Video conferencing for me is so far the best way to communicate with family and relatives living far apart. One thing that makes kind of frustrated with video conferencing service that I have tried so far was the quality. I hate it when the video keeps freezing and the voice is choppy, or when there’s much statics.

I’ve learned of a new video conferencing services that I believe would satisfy me, it’s called “Teem.” The program is user friendly, video and voice quality is superb. Surely, people at work or at home will love it. Check it out; you may try their free trial and see for yourself the benefits and joy that the service offers.

Little One’s World

Little ones has there own world. It seems that they have their own language to understand each other. They have their own conversation in ways that we adults seem not to understand. We see them enjoying even they don’t speak well. They look amazing. We don’t know how their conversation goes. When they get bored and if we don’t keep an eye on them they may end up fighting. Here are some pictures of my little one playing with my friend’s baby.

Communicating With The Baby

The baby’s range of sounds and facial expressions continues to grow, with lots of babbling, squealing, smiling, and laughing — which may mean less time for crying. This is also an age of imitating sounds, which are first attempts at speaking.

Trying to imitate sounds

At the age of seven months, my baby at this age began to experiment with the sounds he could make with his mouth, using saliva as an important tool. My baby also makes more effort to emulate sounds and fritter more time babbling. Make no mistake, this is baby’s early endeavor at talking and should be convinced as much as possible. If we pay attention closely, we’ll hear my baby’s voice heave and slump as if asking a question or making a statement. Our baby is just now starting to comprehend the basics of communication through words. Now, our baby’s beginning to pick out the words of your saying and can hear and know the different sounds that we formulate and the way words form sentences.

Babies may also try coughing to get parental attention at this age just like our baby does. Rather than punishing our baby for this, we give extra attention once the coughing or fussing has stopped. This is the age when our babies are able to reflect our emotional state, which is the beginning of true communication.

Teaching to Communicate

One of the most important thing that our child needs to learn is to communicate. In their minor mind, parent should have time to teach them communicating to babies or kids of their age to developed their relationship toward other children.  Through communicating with each other, babies create esteem and would make them bold as a human.SNV36151

For my little baby boy I let him practice communicating to his little friends (Babies or kids at his age or a bit older).  We set certain time to visit friends with babies to make them close. We give them time to play and in a way they would seem to talk to each other even though we don’t understand their words but in their little ways, they understand each other. I have to join and help them to play with their little finger. In our church there is a class for the little one so I bring him to the cradle roll class so that he has so much time to see other children though he don’t understand the stories that they listen to. In same way he will meet new kids that will soon become his friends. He also has much time to smile, he smiles to the people who talks to him.

Indeed, through these practice the children will strappingly develop their communication skill and their speech. And also their personal relationship will slowly build up.

POSITIVE SUPPORT OF MOTHERHOOD

The world needs mothers who are mothers not merely in name but in every sense of the word. We may safely say that the distinctive duties of woman are more sacred, more holy, than those of man. Let woman realize the sacredness of her work and in the strength and fear of God take up her life’s mission. Let her educate her children for usefulness in this world and for home in the better world. The mother is the queen of the home, and the children are her subjects. She is to rule her household wisely. Her influence in the home is to be paramount. If she is a Christian, under God’s control, she will command the respect of her children. The children are to be taught to regard their mother as a queen who is to guide and direct them.

When I was younger then, I remember that my mother always reminds us to be a good girl and good boy; she teaches us the thing that we need to know. You must know the chores at home, in a way soon when you make your own family you can lead your family right. She utters. She teaches us to pray to God always as our way of communication to our Heavenly Father. She guides us in our daily youth activities. She led us in the right path. Until I got married, still she is there willing to steer me as I needed her advice.
