Miracles still happen Today


Good Day, Beautiful People!

Last Friday, was such breezy day at work. Yet in a short space of time trying get ready to host my business and working sisterhood meeting I injured my right knee not knowing the cause except an acute sharp stabbing pain on my right knee. I literally could not walk for half a minute. Did not know what hit me. I never experience such pain before. Thank God, the pain subsided less than a minute. I am so grateful as I began to inch gingerly towards my car. My right knee seemed to behave relatively well by the time I reached the venue.

By the time the meeting ended, walking out to the car was another crazy sharp pain on my right knee. I had to stop till the pain died off then continue to move slowly to my friend’s car to get me home. I felt ok till I got out of the car and walked a short distance before I felt another gripe on my same knee. I was irritated by this issue. Long story short, I had my knee x-ray done. Praise Him, nothing broken, no damage done. My guess is I pinch a nerve doing workout at the gym continuously for three nights. I used knee guard and heat pad for my knee for the night.

The next day, I felt better so I ran a few errands here and there. I was in a shop and out of nowhere, a shop assistant lost her balance and one of her foot with Dr Martens boot landed on my left ankle. I was pretty much in agony for more than ten minutes. I know it was an accident and she apologised profusely for a few times. I forgive her now but at moment I could not. Shortly after that both my ankles and right knee were sore as my body tried to compensate. What a “brilliant” weekend! I whinged to myself. Got home and determine to ignore most eyesore house chore that were staring at my face as I was in no condition to do much.

Sunday, I woke up feeling like an eighty years old woman with ache all over my body. It was a nightmare to get out of bed. Well, I guess going to church was out of the question, the only church I could attend was my home church. So I listened to good music, sing praise and claim healing over my body. I did the force rest, R&R (rest and relaxation for most people for me is rest and restoration).

Below are some of His promises I declared.
But now take another look. I’m going to give this city a thorough renovation, working a true healing inside and out. I’m going to show them life whole, life brimming with blessings. I’ll restore everything that was lost to Judah and Jerusalem. I’ll build everything back as good as new. I’ll scrub them clean from the dirt they’ve done against me. I’ll forgive everything they’ve done wrong, forgive all their rebellions. And Jerusalem will be a center of joy and praise and glory for all the countries on earth. They’ll get reports on all the good I’m doing for her. They’ll be in awe of the blessings I am pouring on her. – Jeremiah33:6-9

But I will restore you to health and heal your wounds,’ declares the Lord, ‘because you are called an outcast, Zion for whom no one cares.’ -Jeremiah30:17

for they are life to those who find them and health to one’s whole body -Proverbs4:22

for I am the Lord, who heals you. -Exodus15:26

And the Lord will guide you continually, and satisfy you with all good things, and keep you healthy too; and you will be like a well-watered garden, like an ever-flowing spring. -Isaiah58:11

And by His stripes we are healed. -Isaiah53:5

Today is a brand new day! I woke up feeling wonderful. My body rejoice like a twenty years old again. I am convinced that I am back to normal. I can exercise, wriggle, jump and dance again. This is my amazing miracle! Praise Jesus! A true blue Aussie’s voice came out of me, “I am as happy as a little Vegemite!”

Happy Birthday [joyeux anniversaire, feliz cumpleaños]

Good Day, Beautiful People!

IMG_7315
Today is my Hatch Day, celebrating me! Another year has passed, another typical working day from the outside world. My inner being feel awesome! People who do not know me think why I am happy and celebrating life like as if it is a significant milestone every year. It is significant in a way because I have witness how short and fragile life can be. The numbers and length of days are given to each and everyone of us. We are not put on earth to live here forever yet many of us choose to think that way. You’re here for a purpose. Live it well and intentionally. Once the day is gone, you cannot buy it back even you’re the richest person on earth. There is so much to be thankful for! 2010 My health was compromised, stage 1. God healed me, walking in good faith health. 2013 I had a relapse of my illness, stage 2. We never like the “C” word. I was told by my doctor in the most inconvenient time; a week before my work conference in Europe. “You have to schedule for surgery as soon as come home.” By the time, my surgeon chopped and fried me, I was told I was in stage 3 with biopsy results. Followed by 3 painful jabs. Praise God all my half yearly tests so far are good in pink health. So grateful that Abba God gives me another amazing year of promises to be fulfilled, unusual miracles and unusual blessings in 2015.

His Promise:
With long life I will satisfy him and show him my salvation. -Psalm91:16
For they will add length to your days, years to your life, and abundant peace to you. -Proverb 3:2

Forever thankful to Abba God for saving me, an unusual blessed and Happy birthday!

I would like to take this opportunity to thank and bless all who have touched my life, past and present; my family, my friends, the ones I know closely, the ones that I know casually and those virtual souls I met through social media. I really appreciate you all for contributing and adding interest to my life. May you forever be joyful, have a good healthy body, mind and soul. Wishing you all the very best in your life. Live it out boldly however it may look like.

Think Pink for October [ Pensez rose pour Octobre, Piensa en rosa para Octubre]

IMG_4170.JPG
Good Day, Beautiful People!

IMG_4178.JPG
Today, I’m sharing something close to my heart. Is hard not to get involve in whatever way for this cause as I lost a few loved ones, friends and pastors through different cancers over the years. As believers, we can bring faith, hope, love, joy and practical help into every situation. “I am only one, but I am one. I can’t do everything, but I can do something. The something I ought to do, I can do. And by the grace of God, I will.” -Edward Everett Hale. We can’t do everything but together we can all do something.

IMG_4171.JPG
It is not too late to get involved, attend or host a McGrath Foundation or cancer council pink ribbon day fundraiser, a morning tea, a girls’ night in or an event to create breast cancer and other gynaecological cancers awareness. Fundraising to bring medical research, contributing vital support and prevention programmes. You can do it small or big, at your own home, your workplace, school, church and local community event. Everyday, 50 women are diagnosed with breast cancer and other gynaecological cancers in Australia. Pretty sure is not a small number around the globe. I dare says, we all know someone in our circle (self, family, friends, neighbours, school moms or colleagues) who are diagnosed.

Spread love and kindness in your circle or even outside your circle, pray for the sick and family, visit the sick, make a meal, send flowers, a card of encouragement, call or message them to show you care. For those who follow earlier and remember one of my beautiful and brave friend, Nezz, is an overcomer. She is in remission and currently pregnant! Praise God!

Esperanza Jai Refuge has just organised a fundraiser event for the locals this coming 30th August 2014, Sat, 745pm. All are welcome.

Below is the official trailer of the show:

According to critics this an awesome show to see with family & friends. It is based on the book written by Richard C Morais. It was described a scrumptious book, a true adventure for the senses. Personally, I have not read the book. It sounds like a good read to me during my vacation time.

IMG_3184.JPG
The movie ratings average 3-4 stars. A culture clash drama, comedy with the comfort of good food. Accompanying by the strong backing of Oprah Winfrey and Steven Spielberg. Of course, the talented Helen Mirren and Om Puri brought the story to life, is such a fun, melodramatic and intriguing experience.
So if you live near the area where the private screening event bring your peeps with you for a cheap social and donating to a good cause.
Even if you living interstate or other country still go and enjoy this movie.

Love to inspire you with this quote:
One person can make a difference and everyone should try. – John P. Kennedy.
If you are stirred to make a difference for this cause simply send an email to
esperanza.refuge@gmail.com

So stoked that we raised $5000 for the night!

Run Baby Run ( Do Something New Part 2)

IMG_3069-0.JPG
Good Day, Beautiful People!
Last Saturday, the day before the run. I nearly quit since I injured my hamstrings on Friday. The ‘Angelic’ part of my mind says “Come on, you can do it!” But the ‘Devilish’ part of my mind says “No! You’re in pain! What if you can’t finish the run? It will be so embarassing!” Guess what, the ‘angelic’ part of my mind win the debate. I was determined to finish what I signed up for even I had to walk & be the last to finish the race. Since I was reminded of these living word:
You were running a good race. Who cut in on you to keep you from obeying the truth? (‭Galatians‬ ‭5‬:‭7‬ NIV)
I can do all this through him who gives me strength. (‭Philippians‬ ‭4‬:‭13‬ NIV)

IMG_3168-0.JPG
I was too excited to sleep well and a bit anxious that I overslept. The beautiful sunrise photo above I took it on the Sunday, 10/8/14, on my way to city to surf. A pretty chilly winter morning about 8 degree Celsius. My muscles were frozen stiff. Trying my best to stretch as much as I can.

Incredible atmosphere, 85000 people young and old running the city to surf 14km course from city centre to Bondi Beach, including the infamous ‘heartbreak hill’. Even RedFoo was there. Many spectators cheering the runners all the way! According to news, this is the 44th year, the annual event has already raised over $4,000,000 for charity.

My team were doing as fast as they could. I told my friends to go ahead, I just had to do at my own pace since my muscles are in spasm initially. It is only after 2km I was not in acute pain that I can start to pave myself to run.

Half way through the run, someone said Hi to me. I was surprised to one of the Hope103.2 team by my side. I said I thought I was the last of Hope team. She smiled ” No, you are not. I am the last one of the Hope team.” Seriously, Suzanne is like an angel sent from Heaven to encourage me along the way when my muscles went into spasm. She kept speaking to me along the course “You’re doing very well.” “Are you ok?” “How is your hamstrings doing?” “You’re doing good as a first timer!” “You can do it! You nearly there. Only 4 more km to go.”
I told Suzanne “I’m going to charge last last few km. Will meet her at the finish line at Hope 103.2 stand.” She answered “Go ahead! See you later.”

I ran my best as I knew I was close to finish line. Well, I was a bit disappointed that I took 139min53sec. Certainly, not my personal best but is best for now! The fun part after finished the race was getting my medal. I felt a sense of satisfaction that I actually did it!!!

Imagine after the run, tried to get to your team navigating in a sea of people and was given 3 wrong instruction for a run around. In my mind, I thought I would be able to meet Suzanne at Hope103.2 stand. Yet in reality, by the time, I turned up is nearly 12noon at Hope stand. I was a bit annoyed with myself for not doing all the way with her. Because I wanted to say proper thank you to her kindness to me and cheering me on when my body not 100%. Suzanne Bennett was really such an ANGEL that God sent to me during the run. Truly, is people like her that make the world a nicer place. I may not be given a chance to thank her personally. So I will pay tribute to her here.

Sadly, I heard the bad news of a 27 years old guy, a Fox Sports employee, Chris Head, a fitness fanatic went into cardiac arrest and claimed his life shortly at the end of the run. Life is so short and fragile, my thoughts and prayers for the family.

Through this experience, I learnt that running the race is not just for the young, you will be surprise that some 80 years old can run faster than me. It is about inspiration, motivation, training, endurance, encouragement, perseverance, determination, willpower, focus, moral support and divine guidance.

This remind me of the living word:
He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. (‭Isaiah‬ ‭40‬:‭29-31‬ NIV)
IMG_3112.JPG
Hope now you are inspired to try something new. Love to hear from you about a new thing you are going to do or doing or had a new experience.
Last but not least, another HUGE THANKS to all my AMAZING, BEAUTIFUL and GENEROUS SUPPORTERS who HELP me to raise funds to a great CAUSE! I could not have done it without you all!

Run Baby Run (Do something New)

20140806-231644-83804842.jpg

Good day, Beautiful people!
Today, I am sharing with you something I never ever do before. Is always good to challenge yourself to do new things, see something for the first time or learn a new skill or go for a new adventure. We never ever graduate from learning in this world till we are promoted and change your address to Heaven.

As a child, you are in for new things. Each day you wake up to learn new things and of course you go to formal or home school to educate yourself and equip yourself. Enrol yourself with extra activities like sports, arts, drama and dancing. Most of us when we become adults doing or experience new things are optional or even non existence. Ask yourself: “When is the last time you try something new for the first time or have a new adventure or a new experience even something outside your comfort zone?

God, the Creator of Universe, love new things and love doing a new thing!!!
Sing a new song of praise to him; play skillfully on the harp, and sing with joy. (‭Psalms‬ ‭33‬:‭3‬ NLT)
For I am about to do something new. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it? I will make a pathway through the wilderness. I will create rivers in the dry wasteland. (‭Isaiah‬ ‭43‬:‭19‬ NLT)
Sing a new song to the LORD! Let the whole earth sing to the LORD! (‭Psalms‬ ‭96‬:‭1‬ NLT)
They are brand new, not things from the past. So you cannot say, ‘We knew that all the time!’ (‭Isaiah‬ ‭48‬:‭7‬ NLT)
Since this new way gives us such confidence, we can be very bold. (‭2 Corinthians‬ ‭3‬:‭12‬ NLT)
For I am about to do something new. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it? I will make a pathway through the wilderness. I will create rivers in the dry wasteland. (‭Isaiah‬ ‭43‬:‭19‬ NLT)

Last month, I signed up city to surf, a 14km run. Some people think I am insane. Some people are not happy about my decision thinking I’ll kill myself doing it. Others who are cheering me on and supporting my crazy new project running for a good cause.
Before my health was compromise, I was fit and able to do walking, jogging, cross country running, gym workout, Pilate and a bit of Zumba. After my operation, I was not as fit as I used to be.
I choose to BELIEVE my Jesus has healed me totally! I declare healing and my strong army of faith filled people praying and believe with me.
I choose to take responsibility of taking care of my body. Healthy eating habits, reduce stress level, keep fit and rest.
You know you must be doing something right when start something new, all hell broke loose or things in your world just gone wrong. The enemy is not happy. But ” You just keep smiling at the enemy because this will make him mad knowing God has you covered.” -Bobbie Houston. Guess what, soon after I signed up for this fundraiser run, I was not well. After two course of strong antibiotics, a body procedure, drama, sore body and misunderstanding with two people. Is so easy for me to quit and let the enemy win. I choose the road less travelled. Pause, breathe and smile at the enemy because I know I will have my victory and the last laugh! Continue training… Not my personal best, but is my best for now 14Km in 126.41mins. Afterall, being a slow runner is better than not moving at all. Love this running humour “Slow runners make fast runners look good. You are welcome!”
By the way, if you like to sponsor me for this cause the link is below:

Thank you in advance for stopping by and showing act of kindness. Will post some photos after the event. Stay tune!

Photo above is taken by a Professional Photographer, one of Kym Thomson’s work. [Warning: If you are offended by this unapologetic photo, please move on.  This is not about nudity or boobs. Oops, there is none! I will not entertain crazy questions or remarks. Be mature, move on and have a nice day.]

Good Day, Beautiful People!

Life is full of ups and down, not always smooth. We can all wish life is like a bed of roses. Granted that you are in this life journey sooner or later you will face challenges.  Not many can escape from relationship, financial, health, emotional, addiction, crisis and ultimately mortality. Sometime, it takes some drastic drama happen to us either to our loved ones or friends for us to be awaken from our stupor. At that instant, we have to make a decision to crumble or to fight. I hope we choose to be brave and live with intention and purpose. You may choose to think this will never happen to me so I can choose to live life carelessly and frivolously have nobody to answer to. Actually, you are right. That is the freedom of choice. Although that is true, why wait till crisis happen then make a choice when you can do it now. Search your heart, ask yourself are you living your life purposefully toward your destiny.

Trust me, is not everyday, 12th of May 2014, I wake up to a brave and beautiful friend, Nerralea Van Der Merwe featured on news by the work of another super creative and marvellous friend, Kym Thomson.
It is incredible to see Nezz rises up and refuses to give up attitude. Beyond doubt, Nezz’s faith, conviction, people who love her like family and friends, church and support groups has make her an overcomer and not a victim of cancer. Nezz is not the only person I know that went through this cancer journey. You know who you are. I will not mention your names here without your permission. Thank you for being brave and navigate this path so well.

Of course, I am very proud of my friends’ achievement and will continue to cheer them on! Beside, I am a bit jaded by reading all the negativity, bad news most of the time. I find it refreshing and inspiring to read good news, news that bring hope. Nevertheless, the reason I am sharing this story is I know that there are people out there who need to know there is hope in the darkness. Folks who are still in the midst of their storm need to focus on Jesus, your captain, keep declaring health, and  look far away at the horizon.

Believe in your future self. Don’t be push by your problems. Be led by your dreams.

http://www.jump-in.com.au/show/mornings/videos/3578677793001/

Isn’t this a good reminder for most of us as young and older women need to embrace our bodies. Regardless what the world says about your body. You are beautiful because you are created in the image of your Creator.

She is a dreamer, a doer, a thinker. She sees possibility everywhere.

Look at the beautiful and amazing Nezz now, trim and fit!

Eat Smart

20140518-192938.jpg Above photo is taken by me.

Good Day, Beautiful People!
Starting my day right with superfood. Spirulina is super green. Spirulina is like natural sea vegetable not true algae (actually a cyanobacteria) has many health benefits. Under the same umbrella with Chlorella. It is loaded in Chlorophyll, and similar to plants, draw its energy from the sun. I normally, take it with water, or organic juice. I even add it in my homemade organic smoothies. Seriously, I will not bore you all on the properties, nutrients and benefits as you can google and research this easily if you are keen.

“Spirulina has long been associated with immune building and anti-viral properties, eye and brain health and cardiovascular health, but we now see that spirulina also has anti-inflammatory properties through this research on one of the principal constituents in spirulina, phycocyanin. This study isolates the mechanism of action for phycocyanin as an anti-inflammatory.” – Dr Joseph Mercola

It tastes savory like seaweed. Let me know you are game to give it a go or you are already a fan. This is simply another one of my sharing. I am not here to convert you or sell you Spirulina. It is never anyone place to condemn people who are not into superfood or organic health food. 20140518-205511.jpg

Who says healthy and organic food cannot be delish. Your taste buds will be enticed with real food taste without all the nasty chemical, pesticides and hormones. Real food does not need much seasoning & sauce to make it yummy. Beside, it is not true that organic or healthy food are always more expensive. There is are ways to do it more affordable. Most likely to save you huge medical cost in the long run.

Below are a few articles for those who are keen to learn more or ready for a change in the way of food consumption.

http://foodbabe.com/2013/05/20/how-to-eat-organic-on-a-budget/ http://www.foodmatters.tv/articles-1/10-tips-for-buying-organic-food-on-a-budget http://www.sparkpeople.com/resource/nutrition_articles.asp?id=740

Some wise person taught me this ages ago and has been stuck in mind since then: You are what you eat. Don’t be fast, cheap, easy or fake. Leave you with this thought from the Living Word “Listen carefully to Me, and eat what is good and let your soul delight itself in abundance.” Isaiah 55:2
