Art of Resting [Art de repos; Arte di Riposo; Arte de descansar; 休息的艺术]

  
Good Day, Beautiful People!

Sorry for not writing in as much as before.  Sometime life throws you a curve ball, you need to respond wisely. The need arise cause me to take a short sabbatical and chill. 

In our modern days, busy lifestyle, rest is the last thing we have in mind for most of us unless you’re retirees or in between jobs  or force to rest at home. 

Depends on your personality, I certainly find myself in the space that I have to labour to rest. My body is forced to rest to restore to good health. 

  
Learn to rest in the fullness of His Grace. 

Learn to sleep well and take cat nap.

Learn to declare and claim His Promises of health and wholeness.

Learn to relax and chill with good praise music, podcasts and books. 

Learn to be patient during the wait. Do constructive and productive thing like reading or encouraging someone while waiting. 

Learn not to get annoyed looking at things need to be done and yet unable to be done at the time frame.

Learn to receive help is pretty humbling experience. Especially you treasure your independence ability to do most stuff on your own.

Learn to be grateful in small things, in daily progress, in true friends that lean in and care. 

Learn to surround yourself with joy and happiness whatever that is.

Learn to run again eventually.

Whatever is worrying you, forget about it! Take a DEEP BREATHE and TRUST GOD!

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!”

Good Day, Beautiful People!

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.
