"And give my son Solomon the wholehearted devotion to keepyour commands, statutes anddecrees and to do everything tobuild the palatial structure forwhich I have provided." 1 Chronicles 29:19 (NIV) Cheri handed my crying baby tome, his little eyes swollen, hissobs subsiding into gulping sighs.W ithin seconds, Robbie calmed as I nuzzled him and kissed hissweet face. I hugged my friend and thankedher for trying again to watchRobbie while I went back to workpart-time. Again, my son refused a bottle and cried constantly We both knew this wasn't going towork. Forcing a smile, I turnedquickly so she wouldn't see mytears. By the time I got to the car I could hold them back no longer Securing my son, I slipped in thedriver's seat, put my head on thesteering wheel and wept. He was my third child, so Ithought I had the mommy-thingfigured out. Only Robbie didn'thave the same personality orneeds of his older brothers.They'd taken bottles easily But Saying Goodbye T o Something Y ou Love this child had a unique bond withme. Not only that, but we couldn'tjust sit together; I had to bewalking and rocking him. If thatboy was awake, he needed totouch me and be moving, or thecrying began. My older sons, ages 2 and 4,weren't the quiet type either Other children kept occupiedwith a bag of toys, crayons or pa-per Not mine. My life changed dramaticallywith the birth of my third son. As a result, I made the difficultdecision to quit many things Ienjoyed: my part-time job,leading children's ministry andteaching Bible study to name afew Most days I just felt sad as the world seemed to pass me by A highlight was picking up a dozen donuts and a Diet Coke andheading to Cheri's house. She wasthe only friend who couldtolerate my three rowdy children.And she also understood that DietCoke offsets the calories in thedonuts. The perfect friend! I loved those little boys im-mensely And not a day passed that I didn't thank God for them. But I grieved what I'd left behind,and that grieving affected myenjoyment of the present. I missed having position andauthority at work. I longed for thesense of completion. Sadly I thought my "ministry" was outside my home, and wonderedwhen God would use me again. Thankfully God intervened in adramatic way and I came to understand and appreciate thecalling and cost of motherhood.God changed my heart andpriorities, and the rewards havefar outweighed the sacrifices. Butit was still hard. Recently God brought those difficult years to mind as I read 1Chronicles 28 and 29. These chapters record KingDavid passing his crown andassignment to build God's templeto his son, Solomon. In thisdecision, David gave up hisposition, authority respect and purpose. Did David mope and moan?Did he grab donuts and diet sodawith a friend? No, the Bible tellsus David "praised the Lord in the presence of the whole as-sembly" (1 Chronicles 29:10). What follows is one of themost beautiful, humble prayers inthe Bible. David's graciousactions and adoration for Godinspired and moved hearts in theJewish people. After praying, Scripture tells us David invited the people to praiseGod: "So they all praised the LORD, the God of their fathers;they bowed down, prostrating themselves before the LORDand the king" (1 Chronicles 29:20). What a vivid contrast betweenmy response and King David'swhen each of us gave upsomething we loved. David didn'tgrip the past tightly; he openedhis hands and heart to embracewhat God was doing in thepresent. I can't go back to those earlyyears, but with God's help andDavid's example, I can changehow I respond in the future. David had cultivated a life ofpraise, so when faced with loss,that habit elevated his response.David's trust in God was so greatthat he joyfully supported otherswho would build the temple helonged to build. As I've addressed this personally I've discovered praising God is at the center ofcontentment. As we praise Him, we find the assurance that He'sgot things covered ... even babieswho cry inconsolably and ourlonging for significance. It's there, in knowing God seesus and hasn't forgotten us, we findpeace. And it's there, in every walking-rocking-sleepless night,we find purpose. My season of life is differentnow but I'm still faced with saying "goodbye" to things I love. That "little" boy moves away to college next month, andI'm praying for an attitude likeKing David's — full of praise,grace and generosity of heart.

AzuetaAugust Editor: Sherlene Dawson “The Newspaper that cares and dares to bring out the truth” #42 George Price Highway Santa ElenaT own, Cayo District, Belize, CA Continued From Front Page The married couple lived I CorozalT own for 10 years giving birth to three Corozalenos: Marlon I (diseased) Marlon Zenaido and Mark Mar chan. They subsequently went to live in the W est, in Cayo, where the Mars multiplied the family evenmore, giving birth to Marvin V incent, Mar cel and Marjelie Carmen, their only daughter They also raised Jose Luis Dominguez their foster son. After high school, Agustina started her teaching career a career which spanned 36 years, at RanchitoGovernment School in Corozal. She,subsequently taught in other schools in Corozal, including her alma mater before she obtained her T eacher ’s Diploma from the Belize T eachers College in 1986. After T eachers College, she bade goodbye to theschool children of Corozal resumingher teaching at the schools in the CayoDistrict: Sacred Heart, Santa Elena,Faith Nazarene and Howard SmithNazarene. She mostly taught infantsin the lower division, and besidesbeing a teacher she was also at timesV ice Principal and even Principal. Miss Mar the teacher never for got her pupils and she could always beheard saying: “Oh, yes, I taught him/her He/she was a fine young man/woman!” The beloved and loving Agustina was a dedicated teacher and an evenmore dedicated wife, mother andgrandmother Her family was most important to her and she made sureGod knew that, pouring out her heartdaily unto Him praying, petitioning,beseeching, pleading, asking andalways giving thanks. “Hear my voice when I cr y Oh Lord; and have mercy also upon me andanswer me” She felt that every day her family needed the protection ofGod so every day she cried out toGod covering her family in prayers. As a teacher Agustina would regularly attend the church for theschool where she taught. However it was after retirement, andenlargement of the family to includein-laws and grandchildren, that shesensed she really needed God in herlife. The start of the year 2014 saw atransformational change in her life aswell as in the life of her husband,Zenaido, when both, independently sought the God of creation and founda merciful, heavenly Father Jesus became her all: Savior Lord, Confidante, Healer and her hope.Being a woman to whom family isimportant, she quickly embraced theSanta Elena Lighthouse FoursquareChurch family as her own andincluded both families in thecelebration of life, whether it was abirthday celebration or as evidenced today her joyous reunion with her Beloved Jesus Christ, Son of God. One of my most memorableexpressions of love is framed byAgustina and Zenaido attendingchurch together submitting one to the other Recently Zenaido, her beloved husband of almost 39 years, honoredher at church, publicly thanking Godfor her and telling her from the altarthat he loved her that she was a precious wife to him and humblyasked her to for give him. Agustina responded to his love, glowing withthe same radiance as on the day theygot married, and, humbly asked Zenaido to also for give her What a joyous time that was for Agustina, the healing power of God throughforgiveness where love is restoredand the heart strengthened to facetomorrow and to keep on hoping forthe health and wellbeing of her beloved family She blossomed in the peace of God, and if our Lord hadallowed, she would have kept onglorifying God, working as thefaithful servant that she is for thecontinued expansion of His kingdom. At church she once asked in full humility if she would be allowed totake up the offering. In fact, her lifeitself is a pleasing offering to God.T oday we have the assurance that she is before her Lord who lovinglyaccepts her offering as a fragrantaroma before Him and personallywelcomes her home. W e also have the knowledge that in heaven theprayers of the saints that burn asincense before the enthroned King ofKings carries Agustina’ s prayers: “Lord, save my family!” Losing her is painful and fills us withunbearable sorrow but knowing thather passion and love for Jesus madeher an over -comer worthy to sit at the throne of Jesus who alsoovercame and now sits at the throneof God, we have the strength torejoice and to whisper a prayertoday saying: “Thank you Jesus!” May the Lord of comfort be withus in this time of mourning.
