Christmas. Pain Beyond Imagination

 Today is Day 7 of the #PrepareOurHeartsForAdvent Holy Yoga devotional.

It’s a busy Sunday and truth be told, I didn’t really get the still meditation time I would have liked to have. Running around with two boys and HoYo Sunday class to teach, life has never a dull moment on Sundays! But in this time we prepare for Advent, every day I make time to think about Jesus’ coming. Here, my son and I do it together. We both love Jesus. We say our prayers together. He is my blessing. I love my son.

I know God loves His son and to send His son to bear our sins for us, planned to be crucified on the cross from the moment He was born… It’s pain beyond imagination.

Thank you, Lord for your mercy. Thank YOU for Your grace.

Embarrassed by My Name

20151121_天愛SkyLoveThis month, Holy Yoga Ministries asks us all to dedicate a post to introduce ourselves.  It has been great learning more about the 1300+ community of HoYo teachers worldwide.  Founded by Brooke Boon, in her obedience to God’s calling, she has helped hundreds and a rapidly growing thousand(s) of us Jesus and Yoga lovers to bring the word of God to all corners of the world through Holy Yoga.
My name is Josephine Lau, more often known as ‘Jo’, living in Sydney, Australia.  A mother of 3 boys (including my eldest, aka my husband) currently training as a HoYo Therapist.  I have the honour of bringing HoYo classes 4 times a week to my community around me.  Combining my HoYo lifestyle, motherhood and my profession-by-trade as a Digital Marketer,  my life is filled with busy-ness but also peace in Christ Jesus.  I find joy in all things I do in Him.  Some days are great, some days are average.  But let’s just say, every day that I live to serve Him is a blessing.  If I ever forget that one day,  I only need to look at my Chinese name.
My mother gave me this name that I had been embarrassed for years, as a child.  In Chinese, this is a very literal and obscure name.  It reads ‘Sky Love’ and means ‘Love from above’.  I’ve grown to love this name.  If I ever forget what my life is about, say my name, say my name….
