天空

(取之网络)

不知道什么时候养成的习惯,喜欢望天。然后,把这个习惯传染给了大宝小宝。

大宝小宝喜欢后院草刚割好的傍晚,因为,妈妈会拿来大草席,大家躺在草席上,望天。

妈妈喜欢游泳的时候,仰着看天,水的浮力支撑着身体的重量,冰凉冰凉,看着天空,错觉自己身在梦中。

天空的变化让开车的路上变得精彩。本来习惯在路上追逐,开快车,为要更快达到目的地,不想把时间浪费在开车事上的妈妈,现在,变得不在乎路途的长短,看着沿途前方的天空赞叹。

在槟城,每天早上上学的路途必定和槟威大桥错身而过,沿着海边向光大驶去,一路上看到的天空是蓝色的,红色的,紫色的。

现在,每天上学,也必经过海边,看到的还是,红色的,蓝色的,紫色的晨曦。

不敢用太多形容词形容天空,深怕因此破坏了天空的美。只有贪婪的望着天空,享受不敢屏息的赞叹。

那天,在实验室外跟同事谈话,同事指指天空,condensation tail, 大家静了下来,霎时,妈妈突然明白,喜欢天空是因为它 安静执著的权译改变。

一个人几岁可以大概从他睡眠的时间看出来。
 
周日,妈妈发觉自己竟然六点起床就再也睡不着了。晴天霹雳。
一个人不能睡到自然醒是很可悲的。
那是几年前的事情了?睡到自然醒,少年时期常常有这样的享受。
 
后来再长大一些,就觉得睡觉很浪费时间。世界这么美好,应该少睡觉。
周日就逛街看戏,吃吃喝喝,风花雪月。
 
后来,孩子出来了。睡觉是奢侈。只要有时间就赶快补眠。睡觉变得不定时。有时候,坐着都可以睡觉。
 
现在,孩子渐长,睡眠本来可以很充足。但是,竟然不能睡?
对这么爱睡觉的我而言比患癌症还可悲。
 
清晨六点就瞪眼看天花板。
老了。

期待了很久的《天水》终于播出。 許鞍華的写实电影我很喜欢。
 
看过之后有一点失望,整部电影似乎故意平淡。过于强调生活的实际反而失去了他的原意。比起女人四十差得很远。
 
因为对許鞍華有所期待,所以,一直等着浪花,戏里最有可能激起浪花的是张家安。太过注意张家安,结果张家安平安无事。
尽管如此,还是有感触。
 
张家安是很乖的孩子,里面有一些小片断让我深深感受到贵姐对她孩子的尊重,张家安也同样尊重妈妈。一个大男孩,这个年纪本来比较注重朋友,但是,戏里有一个情节,张家安跟朋友说,要回家过节。朋友问,跟谁一起过节。他毫不羞涩答,妈妈。朋友要参与,他说,要打电话先问问妈妈。
 
现在这个年代,难得。
 
期待《天水圍的夜與霧》。。。

SCARS OF LIFE

An email from friend
 
Some years ago,
on a hot summer day
in South Florida ,
 a little boy decided to go
for a swim in the old swimming hole behind his house.
In a hurry to dive into
the cool water,
he ran out the back door, leaving behind shoes, socks, and shirt as he went.
He flew into the water,
not realizing that as he swam toward the middle of the lake, an alligator was swimming toward the shore.
His father, working in the yard, saw the two as they got closer and closer together.
In utter fear,
he ran toward the water,
yelling to his son as loudly
as he could.
Hearing his voice,
the little boy became alarmed and made a U-turn
to swim to his father.
It was too late.
Just as he reached his father, the alligator reached him.
From the dock,
the father grabbed his little boy by the arms
just as the alligator
snatched his legs..
That began an incredible
tug-of-war between the two. The alligator was much stronger than the father,
but the father was much
too passionate to let go.
A farmer happened to drive by, heard his screams,
raced from his truck,
took aim and shot the alligator.
Remarkably, after weeks and weeks in the hospital,
the little boy survived.
His legs were extremely scarred by the vicious attack
of the animal.
And, on his arms,
were deep scratches
where his father’s fingernails dug into his flesh in his effort
to hang on to the son he loved.
The newspaper reporter
who interviewed the boy
after the trauma,
 asked if he would
show him his scars.
The boy lifted his pant legs. And then, with obvious pride, he said to the reporter,
‘But look at my arms.
 I have great scars
on my arms, too.
I have them because
my Dad wouldn’t let go.’
You and I can identify
with that little boy.
We have scars, too.
No, not from an alligator,
but the scars of a painful past. Some of those scars
are unsightly and have
caused us deep regret.
But, some wounds,
my friend,
are because God has refused
to let go.
In the midst of your struggle, He’s been there
holding on to you..
The Scripture teaches that
God loves you.
You are a child of God.
He wants to protect you
and
provide for you in every way. But sometimes we foolishly wade into dangerous situations, not knowing what lies ahead.. The swimming hole of life
is filled with peril –
and we forget
that the enemy is waiting
to attack.
That’s when the tug-of-war begins – and if you have
the scars of His love
on your arms,
be very, very grateful.
He did not and will not ever let you go.

A Bible Story

读列王记下四章: 一位母亲因为丈夫去世了,欠下了债。 债主要把他的两个儿子拿去当奴隶还债。 母亲很担心。 妈妈看了这个故事特别体会, 因为妈妈有两个儿子。
如果是我,当然拼了老命也要保护自己的孩子。 神怎样为这位母亲解决问题呢?
以利亚让母亲向邻居借桶,不可以少借。 桶借回来后把两个孩子和自己关在家里。 门关好了。
神怎么帮忙呢?
神让母亲把家里剩下的一点油倒在借来的桶里。 奇迹发生了,桶里的油装得满满的。 以利亚神人说,把油卖了还债,剩下的钱可以让寡妇和两个儿子生活。
妈妈看到了:
1. 神关心。 我们是小人物,但是神不吝啬向小人物施神迹。
2. 我们需要别人的帮忙 (向人借桶)
3. 神不但解决了眼前的问题,连将来的需要也预备好。所以,所供应的油有余。
4. 神让母亲经历了神迹,也让孩子亲自体会神的大能。 所以神才吩咐母亲要带着孩子把门关上。
