Slow cooker Sunday.  It's my life saver when I need to have the kids ready for church and be on time as well as have piping hot food ready for when we get home.  Mama life and I love it!  Counting my blessings. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿพ

Wake. Pray. Slay.  With a full teaching load this trimester as well as writing for his PhD, most would be dreading the first day of work especially after the 6 months we spent at home in our beautiful Sฤmoa, but not this man.  He does just that, he wakes, prays and is ready to slay this trimesters teaching load.  His words before he left the house, "five months hun let's do this!! Read the kids their books and never stop praying". Couple goals.  Muaiava family goals.  Feeling re freshed and inspired.  Si o'u alofa, your great expectations always push us to be better and to do better.  God be your guide in all that do. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿพโค๏ธ๐Ÿ’›
While we are experiencing hail and current 6 degree New Zealand weather, my heart yearns for Sฤmoa.  The simplicity of life in the homeland is contrasted with the fast paced life here in New Zealand.  I would trade my job, our house, our salaries, to be back in the land that has my heart.  In the meantime, we will serve our God wherever He has planned for us to be in this moment in time, while always praying that He will lead us back home.  We trust Your timing Lord.  Family strong with God at the helm ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿพ Our love for our homeland โค๏ธ๐Ÿ‡ผ๐Ÿ‡ธ

God, You know our hopes and dreams and we give them all to You with prayerful hearts.  Our life in the homeland ๐Ÿ‡ผ๐Ÿ‡ธ
