2 'S'-es

S- igns

Signs for me to be part of the Angkor of Faith this year, with renewed leave, with renewed help, Use me Lord for Your glory...

S - wift

It was a 'Carpe Diem' moment that happened tonight having decided that a previlege to be part of the journey in Cambodia this year. The concentration to book the correct flights, contemplating flight details as I balanced the increased costs in flights with dedication of this trip to my G-man immediately.

Remembering how Satan lurks ever closer when you are near the Lord.

Align my spirit with yours Oh Lord.
Align yours my friends(:

Gong Xi Fa Cai!

Its in the morning, where all my cousins are still snoozing away on the 2nd day of the Chinese New Year. Body alarm just got me up after about 4 hours, haha.
I'm awake filling stuffed from late night prata-ing, technically still sleep deprived and my body calls out for me to start my exercise regime before I struggle to maintain my fitness for the annual taking of the Individual Physical Proficiency Test (IPPT).
Better start training& to apply for the date!

From the Chinese New Year eve, to the first day of Chinese New Year, it has been thanksgiving for the overflow of food, for the cousins that I re-meet especially my dad's side which rarely gets together compared to my mum's for some reason,
for the connectedness when my other cousins with my mum's I think from all the annual chalets, annual outings as really young children to Fantasy Island on Sentosa, not forgetting weekly lunches at ah ma house,and not forgetting the very faithful 4-5 days we shared watching over our great grandma.

Definitely this season's 'highs' of this season saw me watching 'lows' appearing. Perhaps my journey adulthood got me observing how actually certain family members in the extended unit are seemingly in a different group of their own for some reason and the woes that I saw emerging from while working.

its sigh after sigh sometimes, behaving like an old man, which I'm like 'huhh, isn't there a better way we settle this?' into a sense of seemingly helplessness.
BUT, watching the thing go by doesn't seem to be actually helpful ain't it?
Change start with the hardest person......myself.

Remember how thankful we are to be provided with something to feast
while I had the opportunity to look at cards from the World Children Fund and also remember people who can't afford day to day living, what more celebrations like these.

so with that,Have a blessed New Year my friends(:

P.S: I can hear work calling me when the 3rd day of chinese new year come tomrrow:S

"I do not know who is Madam Ho, I only know her as ah ma."....

Just one of the lines I remembered from Pamela & Amanda's Grandma's funeral.

I sat there and listen to how their Cousin, George shared of their ah ma,
Food's what most of us remember our ah ma's for. Theirs was steamed Pomfret as the highlight, heartfelt laughable moments while you see their faces lit up, gesturing that "haha, those were the days." giving thanks when their ah ma has received Christ into her life while reminded, MY ah ma's don't exactly have much time left on this earthly realm.

Funerals are usually gone with a role for us related to the family to provide an unspoken support, just the presence, or the handling of contributions to help the family cover funeral expenses. But it also gave me a time of refreshing in my walk with God as I listen to assurance from the reflective songs we shared and of the assurance in the salvation through Jesus Christ through the eulogy&sharing of the worship leader.

"Through it all", especially bringing it back from Thailand while sharing in worship with my mission team mates & meditating on the words "I will trust in You..." when I'm down.

I leave the physical place,having been blessed with this humbling experience spiritually.
Thank God for HIS touch(:
