Today is my dad's birthday and tomorrow is my mom's. Although I always mean to spoil them with love, otherwise known as homemade food since food is the primary way we show our concern in Korean culture, I seem to have a hard time with this task. This thing called life is much more complicated than we deem it to be sometimes, don't you think? And I'm afraid I might have let my own endeavors get in the way of cooking something specifically for them, transferring it to my car making sure all possibilities of spillage are taken care of, and setting it on their dinner table.
Since I am a bit wiser than years past and perhaps a tiny bit better in the kitchen (or so I'd like to think), I took the challenge to use these gorgeous persimmons in a European dish. I'm hoping to stuff these into DIY ravioli and creating a magical experience for everyone at the dinner table tonight. If it's worthy of a recipe then I will definitely be sharing it with you! So I'm keeping my fingers crossed for this one because I'm no expert when it comes to pasta making like our lovely Sarah. I tell you though, some people are really good at rubbing off inspiration on others.
The best things in this busy life, as they say, are free sometimes. And currently some of those include plenty of "proud mommy and daddy" moments! Selah has been blossoming like crazy the past few weeks, and what we've noticed is that her style of learning is more geared towards waiting, being somewhat indifferent to certain tasks, and then boom! She suddenly becomes desperate to trying it herself and masters it in one go. It truly is like she collects an immense library of knowledge and how-tos by watching us, and then executes them in one sitting. I guess she does whatever she pleases at her own pace, hah!
As for me personally, I'm pretty tied down this week with a lot of Bible study preparations and groups this weekend. As some of you may have seen my overt enthusiasm on Instagram, I shared that our church women's ministry is having a "rebirth", for lack of better term, and I have a few faithful and beautiful sisters to run alongside with me. To be honest I'm more excited than nervous about this ministry, but any prayers from you are certainly welcome. I can't wait to see the growth in all of us as we study The Word and learn to become the women God has intended us to be. Exciting times are coming, you guys!
Have a beautiful weekend and I'll be around, so don't be shy to keep in touch.
Have you tried persimmon or dishes that contain the fruit as an ingredient?
What are some noteworthy and hallelujah moments in your life right now? :) Share the excitement!
