Such a wonderful weekend…

Psalm 40:3
He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see and fear and put their trust in the Lord.

Spent the entire weekend with my favorite people & favorite things to do! It was brimming with so much joy…simply because it was filled with His presence.

Celebrated dear Kaelyn’s 3rd birthday (in advance), and it went beyond what I was praying for. Y’see, the last thing you’d want in your niece’s birthday celebration is to have her Minnie Mouse balloon destroyed right in front of her – which was what happened to yours truly. It was an accident (the ceiling fans ;( ) and it made my heart sink so bad, seeing her cry. The party hadn’t even started!

But God’s peace & grace reigned, and at the end of the day, I realized the gift He was unraveling for us – the power and importance of forgiveness.

Few minutes later – prompted by my Mum – she smiled, hugged me and nodded her head when I asked if she could forgive me for it. That’s a birthday gift that can only be from Him.

Praying that she grows up to be a woman after God’s heart…one that sees beyond the things of this world and seeks for the things of His heart!

Had a refreshing time with Bren at GardensByTheBay after a housewarming lunch gathering with colleagues too. Such beauty in flowers that I adore! Timely reminder of His creations… It was a date that was very much needed after both of our packed work schedules week after week. Thank God for long weekends!

Ended the weekend with bringing Kaelyn to our church’s Superhero Carnival, which she was so excited about! It was good fun, and her favorite was jumping around in the big Inflatable. There were so many kids around, and seeing them bask in His goodness was really special.

Hope you’d a great weekend too! God loves you!

No matter what happens today…

Celebrate!

Celebrate today, for it is the day He has made. For us! :)

Slow down…before the week starts again

Turning 32…

It was a break that was not just physically restorative, but emotionally & spiritually too. As I spent time with Him & my loved ones…reflecting on the year past & the one ahead, I realise how thankful I am for the ordinary. The ordinary everyday. The little moments between people. The smiles and happy eyes. […]

Enjoying small moments…

Bren and I have been having the worst work schedules for these past weeks, and our peak periods are not even ending anytime soon. He has been coming back late every night these past weeks, a far cry from times when we could meet up at a reasonable dinner hour at least twice a week […]

“Do you like me??”

He would smile this sweet expression, nod his head in a question, waiting expectantly for my answer. Many times, he would repeat the question while I take time to smile at his almost-daily routine of this every day he sees me after school. At times, before I could reply, he would sheepishly utter, “I like […]

Just back!

From a retreat in Batam, Indonesia. Celebrated Bren’s birthday, had a ministering time of fellowship & a painfully good massage, followed by a simple but fun time appreciating our leaders. Before that, went for Linda’s beautiful & artistic wedding ceremony, and spent some time with family on Saturday morning. All in all, a great weekend […]

Joy in the slow………..

20140311-220217.jpg

It’s funny how circumstances sometimes jolt you into thinking more – more of what you believe in, what you stand for, what God wants & what His desire is for me in this very season. When the world spins around me, I lean in closer to the One who made me. When thoughts race in […]

REST.

20140308-093000.jpg

No other word has been so clear & strong from The Lord this month. Everyday, the devotionals that I’ve read, the messages from His Word…all point to that one word – REST. I’ve been fighting it a bit, that I’ve got to admit. Partly because I wasn’t sure that it was the right thing for […]
