Mission Trip

I’m glad that the SOMA team is back… It just felt warm to see them back from South Africa after we have missed each one of them for the past three weeks.
Hearing and reading their report from this SOMA gave me a heavy heart for mission. I never thought of mission trip, I guess it is because I never felt it before, therefore, I seldom respond to it when there is a mission trip to anywhere. But the feeling that I felt this time, I just couldn’t describe it properly. Seeing the pictures taken from them and hearing their hearts out as they shared has gave me a heavy burden for mission. After reading their report or hear from anyone of them, I started to questions myself that, what am I doing here that only sit in the office and do paperwork and complain about how unfair lives is and worrying about the ‘drama’ that we are facing now.
There is a lot more out there, there are a lot more to see…. Out of sudden, I wish I was there to witness how close God’s heart is with the children in South Africa, how much compassionate is our God when He sees them from Heaven.... Only hears from them has already impacted my life a bit…. What more for them, that been there and sees it with their own eyes and felt it with their own heart.
Life is so much more than what I see now and so much more than what I thought. The world is so big and our God is so much greater than I can ever imagine.

Hotel Transylvania

I seldom talk about movie in my blog but this is seriously a very nice movie and my husband and I are thinking to watch the second time.

It is really funny and we did not expect it to be this good or perhaps we did not set expectation when we went into the cinema. After the movie, both of us felt very relax and happily, we went home and still talked about this cartoon.

I recommend it to everyone…

** Very nice and relaxed movie **

Gary Chapman's blog

I found his blog is very good and would like to share it here. Many of marriage tips are very useful and it might help someone as they browse through this.

“ One wife said, “Our marriage was bad, but out divorce is even worse. I still have all the responsibilities I had when we were married, but now I have less time and less money.” The effects of divorce linger for a lifetime. So do yourself a favour, call a counselor, read a book, or reach out to a pastor. Your marriage is worth it. “

Psalm 91

Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High    
will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress,    
my God, in whom I trust.”
Surely he will save you from the fowler’s snare and
from the deadly pestilence.
He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you
will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
You will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day,
nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness,    
nor the plague that destroys at midday.
A thousand may fall at your side,    
ten thousand at your right hand,    
but it will not come near you.
You will only observe with your eyes    
and see the punishment of the wicked.
If you say, “The LORD is my refuge,”    
and you make the Most High your dwelling,
no harm will overtake you, no disaster will come near your tent.
For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in
 all your ways; they will lift you up in their hands,    
so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.
You will tread on the lion and the cobra;    
you will trample the great lion and the serpent.
“Because he[b] loves me,” says the LORD,
 “I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.
He will call on me, and I will answer him;    
I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him.
With long life I will satisfy him and show him my salvation.”

In this period of time, this psalm bring comfort to us.
** May the Lord deliver us **

The 5th Months

Today mark the 5th months of us being a married couple. It has been a beautiful, wonderful and happy 5 months of us being together. Therefore, we shouldn't forgot some marriage tips to make it even more beautiful...

#1 - I am responsible for my own attitude.

Trouble is inevitable, but misery is optional. Attitude has to do with the way I choose to think about things. Two wives have husbands who have lost their jobs. Wendy said, "My husband hasn't had a full-time job in three years. The good part is not being able to afford cable TV. We've done a lot more talking on Monday nights. We've learned a lot. Our philosophy is 'Let's see how many things we can do without that everybody else thinks they have to have.' It's amazing how many things you can do without."
On the other hand, Lou Ann said, "My husband hasn't had a job for ten months. We are down to one car, no phone, and we're getting food from the food bank. Life is miserable at our house." The difference in these two wives was basically a matter of attitude.

We choose to think negatively and curse the darkness, or we choose to look for the silver lining behind the clouds.
