16 July 2021
My firstborn child's name is LUIGI. He was named after my nickname Louie/Lui. His name in french means "glorious in battle" or "illustrious man."In Italian, the name Luigi means- warrior.
Yes Luigi is a warrior. Inspite of his childhood experiences he remains steadfast. He fights. He never gives up! No matter what's going on in his life, he refuses to quit no matter what happen. He has determination. He learned to be prayerful at all times. He is victorious in the way he responds. He knows that God will lead him through anything if he'll just hang in there and follow Him. This means being diligent in prayer, unwavering in faith, and determined to stand firmly on God's Word and His promises to him.
Today 16July 2021 marks his moving up ceremony. From Form 3 (Grade 9) Junior High School to Form 4 (Grade 10) Senior High School. He received 2 awards. Best in Arts and a B+.He didn’t expect this. But God surprised him.
Pursue you dreams and plans. This is just the beginning of everything, your future, your plans and desires and many more. Continue to excel on what you are doing first to God and to your studies. No matter what happens i will always support and love you.
Always remember that sometimes or most of the time we need to step back and let GOD take control. We need to step down and let GOD do the rest. GOD has a perfect plan for you. He never does it all at once, just step by step, because he wants to teach you to "Walk by FAITH", not by sight. Luigi always keep in mind that in the heat of your struggles, the Holy Spirit is doing great works within you. You will not be moved by the circumstances but believe that God is not in your life for good times only, but in difficult times as well. So many times you can be sidetracked by how slowly things seem to be going. In fact, the enemy loves to point that out! But remember, that's when God is doing some of His greatest work in you, through you and for you. I know life can be hard sometimes but God will help you if you remain steadfast. So never ever give up!
Luigi thank you for being an obedient and loving son first to God and to me. Thank you for being supportive and for your patience to your brother. Thank you for loving him inspite of your differences. In know it’s hard but still you always believe that nothing is too hard for God.
Continue to be a blessing to everyone. Be the salt and light.
Congratulations son. You did it.
I love you.
