Treasure Today

Good Day, Beautiful People.

My mate shared this with me:

SOME DAY & ONE DAY

 _A friend of mine opened his wife’s wardrobe and picked up a silk paper wrapped package._

“This,” he said, “isn’t any ordinary package.”_

_He unwrapped the box and stared at both the silk paper and the box and silk satin dresses inside._

_”She got this the first time we went to New York , 8 or 9 years ago. She has never put it on , was saving it for a special occasion. Well, I guess this is it.”_He got near the bed and placed the gift box next to the other clothing he was taking to the funeral house, his wife had just died.__He turned to me and said, “never save something for a ‘special occasion’. Every day in your life is a *’Special occasion'”*_

_I still think those words changed my life.__Now I read more and clean less.__I sit on the porch without worrying about anything.__I spend more time with my family, and less at work._*_I understood that life should be a source of experience to be lived up to, not survived through._*

_I no longer keep anything._

_I use crystal glasses every day.__I’ll wear new clothes to go to the supermarket, if I feel like it._*_I don’t save my special perfume for special occasions, I use it whenever I want to._*_The words *’Someday….’ and ‘ One Day…’*are fading away from my dictionary.__If it’s worth seeing, listening or doing, I want to see, listen or do it now._

_I don’t know what my friend’s wife would have done if she knew she wouldn’t be there the next morning, this nobody can tell.__*Each day, each hour, each minute, is special.*_

_Live for today, for tomorrow is promised to no-one.__If you’re too busy to send this out to other people and you say to yourself that you will send it ‘LATER remember that LATER might never come…

You may or may not read this message before. If you did, may it serve as a kind reminder.

Life is too short for you not to treasure everyday. Be presence wherever you are. If we strife, we will never be happy, joyful and content. Look at what you have and been given, enjoy before it is all gone or too late.

Celebrating Me in the Storms


Good Day, Beautiful People!

To all my followers, thanks for being patient with my updates. I have been sailing on high gale and furious stormy sea into deep and unknown for awhile.

Do you have one of those crazy times on your life that all stuff that are going on around you that going south or the uncharted road and feel like the invisible weight and burden is so unbearable!  In other words, the massive storms that seemingly unavoidable and keep coming at you. The worst part is you got hit more directions than one. All you do is like a fireman keep putting out fire in different areas all the time. The skepticism can built up as well as doubt the storms will ever cease.

All you can do is look up and gaze at the zillions sparkling bright stars sigh along with slow deep breathe. You may feel tired, overwhelmed, defeated, down, crush or drowning in the storms of life that is not created by you. Even wondering why this is happening to you?  The reality is bad things happen to good and bad people. The sun shines on the good and bad people. The rain and storms don’t discriminate the good and bad people. It may sounds crazy to some, spiritually, your future is so bright that the enemy want to come, kill and destroy now before you become uncontainable. So the only way I know is to be brave and courageous and keep fighting till I get my victory. Pause, rest and restore but never quit!

3 surgeries in less than 3 years does take a toll to the body.  Road to recovery is not as fast as I thought it will be.  The bright side to this was celebrating my Birthday in the hospital for the first time.

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!

Rest [MF]

20140801-173432-63272168.jpg

Good Day, Beautiful People!
Nothing is permanent in this world. The only constant things are God’s Love and changes.
Those of us who travel on this life journey for awhile bound to experience good and bad seasons. Some days in life seem more challenging than other days. You just need to take it as it comes. One day at a time. Even your feeling right now is temporary. So don’t let your feeling run your life. Enjoy the the good with the bad. Be thankful for the good times and challenging times. We learn valuable lesson during challenging time. We can choose to curl up like a ball and hide or choose to put on your spiritual armor, pick up your spiritual weapon and fight. Let your village of people who love you know to give you the support you need.
Adopt a good attitude, positive thinking and good opinion of God. Most brave people I encounter overcome challenging storms through this way has amazing great outcome. You can experience joy right here in the midst of real and even raw life.

Joy is neither the absence of pain,
nor the presence of denial.
It is discovered when you and I
Allows our minds and spirits to be
Saturated with the truth that
God is near us,
With the miracle that He walks beside us. – Alicia Britt Chole

If you have to fight the battle, fight courageously.
If you have to walk through it, walk boldly.
If you have to stand on guard, stand equipped.
If you have to sit and watch, sit patiently.
If you have to rest at a standstill, rest peacefully.
-Angela S Chua

Below is another touching poem REST from my creative mate, Melinda Fletcher.
My soul will rest in You alone
My soul will rest in You alone
In the shadow of your wings
It’s there you will hear me sing
My soul will rest in You alone

My heart will trust in you alone
My heart will trust in you alone
Nothing will I fear
as long as you are near
My God I will trust in you alone

My hope is in Your word alone
My hope is in Your word alone
My hiding place and shield
In your presence where I’m healed
My hope is in Your word alone

You Said – Song/Poem [MF]

20140515-234923.jpg
Good Day, Beautiful People!
Without fail, I am giving you another taste of my gifted friend, Melinda Fletcher’s wonderful creation. Did I forget to mention previously, this girl can sing too. Imagine we all have a gathering, enjoying a pleasant conversation around the table, on spur of moment, she will burst out a divine song that she wrote. This is one of them. You cannot request for it but you have to wait for it to happen. I wish I was fast enough to video it each time. Most time, I was too captivated by the songs and the singing. Well, I hope one day she will have it all recorded on a delightful CD and compile into a marvelous book. Nevertheless, you get to enjoy this moving poem. 

YOU SAID

You said you are my Saviour

You came to rescue me

And all I have to do is love you

To live eternally

 

You said you were my healer

You took all my disease

And all I have to do is love you

And choose to believe 

  

You said you are my helper

You said you’d make a way

That all I have to do is love you

And not to be afraid

You said you are provider

You said you’d meet my needs

That all I have to do is love you

And sit at your feet

You said you were my teacher

You said you’d guide me through

That all I have to do is love you

And love you, Yes I do

And love you, Yes I do.
