There are many unexpected things in life.
I remember the air stewardesses strapping the life vest around their necks and blowing into the whistles just before the plane took off from Japan back to Singapore. And my mum said to me, ‘You know what’s the saddest part of this whole thing? In situations where the plane goes down, people don’t have time to do this’.
And that really got me. In fact, people don’t have time to say goodbye. People don’t have time to think, reflect, regret, laugh, cry, or pause.
I am deeply saddened by the news of QZ8501, made even worse by the fact that it was so close to home. It could have been an friend or a loved one, and my heart goes out to everyone affected.
She is clothed with strength and dignity,
and she laughs without fear of the future.
Love from my dear 12 year old Pepper and his new egg friend
Sorry for not posting for awhile. I’ve been on my Christmas break and have been so blessed to go to Hokkaido, Japan!
Ate lots of sushi, made snow angels and learned how to snowboard!
Here are some pictures 🙂
Hope you all have a lovely Christmas and always be thankful for all of God’s blessings.
In His love,
I wait for you, O Lord; You will answer, O Lord my God.
There’s a gift under the tree, and it’s for you. You have no idea what’s inside, and you can’t wait to open it. Whatever it is, you know it’s going to be something absolutely wonderful, not from the size, shape, or weight of the box, but because of the person it’s from. Like a little kid, you can hardly wait until Christmas morning to find out what it is!
When you ask God in prayer to grant your petitions and desires, you know He will answer with a gift especially for you. What you don’t know, however, is what the gift will be, or what it might look like or what shape it may take, or even when it might come into your life. But because you know the giver, you know it will be exactly what’s best and needful for you.
Answered prayer comes from the Lord who loves you deeply and takes pleasure in delighting you with His gifts. From him, whatever it is, you know it’s going to be absolutely wonderful.

Dear daughter, remember His promises. Remember your testimony. Remember your worth in the Lord Jesus Christ.
Remember that His name is above all other brand name. His name is above your name. His name is above all names
Oh, love that will not let me go
I rest my weary soul in thee
I give you back the life I owe
And in your ocean depths its flow
May richer, fuller be
My life is not my own
My life is not my own
I know it’s yours
Rejection after rejection. My life is yours.
