Merry Christmas

Beautiful People, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Hope you had a blessed Christmas. 2017 is fleeting. I was reminded it is a jubilee year.

How did 2017 treating you? Great, amazing year or challenging year? For many it maybe the case. Happy for you.

I thought 2015 & 2016 was challenging enough! 2017 takes the cake. 2017 is a year I want to forget, been to hell and back. The fact that I’m still standing and smiling doesn’t mean everything is rosy. It means I’m a good fighter, a warrior that never give up. I still believe we can end the year with a high note. Without doubt, challenges make us more robust and relentless. Is not cliches that what did not kill you, make you stronger. Keep smiling tell the enemy to go to hell where he belongs. “When you do the right thing when it’s hard, you’re going to reap blessings, favor, increase, and not just eternal life, but abundant life here on this earth.” – Joel Osteen

So thankful for the amazing people in my life that help me negotiate this season. Grateful that I’m still breathing and kicking the enemy’s butt!

Yay, I receive some miracles and good news on the Eve of Christmas Eve! Can’t wait for more miracles and more good news keep the ball rolling and ushering us to the bright New Year!

Below is My Christmas Gift to you, my Dearest Followers & Readers!

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.

Happy Birthday Jesus! Love Santa Baby xoxo

  
Good Day, Beautiful People!

I don’t know who is the original writer of this beautiful message but thank you. I love it! Sharing this with my friends here.

My dear precious Jesus, I did not mean to take your place,

I only bring toys and things and you bring love and grace.

People give me lists of wishes and hope that they came true;

But you hear prayers of the heart and promise your will to do.

Children try to be good and not to cry when I am coming to town;

But you love them unconditionally and that love will abound.

I leave only a bag of toys and temporary joy for a season;

But you leave a heart of love, full of purpose and reasons.

I have a lot of believers and what one might call fame;

But I never healed the blind or tried to help the lame.

I have rosy cheeks and a voice full of laughter;

But no nail—scarred hands or a promise of the hereafter.

You may find several of me in town or at a mall;

But there is only one omnipotent you, to answer a sinner’s call.

And so, my dear precious Jesus, I kneel here to pray;

To worship and adore you on this, your holy birthday.

  


My prayer for you:

 

My Blessings for you:
May the miracle of Christmas fill your heart with joy and peace. & The light of the Christmas star to you – The warmth of home and hearth to you – The cheer and good will of friends to you – The hope of a childlike heart to you – The joy of a thousand angels to you – The love of the Son and God’s peace to you. With Christmas love and New Year’s wishes! 

My gift to you. Enjoy my fav Christmas Song:

My favourite live musical to you! Enjoy!

Peak or Pit still Thankful 

  

Good Day, Beautiful People.

“Many times the deepest disappointments yield the most beautiful fruit in our lives.

In the later years of life, George lost all his money, his health faded, his right side became paralyzed and his creditors were threatening him with imprisonment for not paying his debts. He had no place to go, no one to really help him, but God. Placing all his trust in God alone, George decided to go into seclusion and spend time in meditation and prayer. Out of this time alone with God he was changed, His eyes opened and he saw such glory. Out of his difficulty he composed perhaps one of the greatest works of music ever…THE MESSIAH. His name – George Frederick Handel.

Don’t give up, your music will return and your life will come into that perfect place God has for you. What God does in secret will bless many openly.” – Passion Translation sharing. 

Christmas is drawing near. We are all so busy with so many festival activities and parties around this time of the year.  I hope in our busyness, we don’t forget the real meaning and Spirit of Christmas. 

Every year, I host a business & working sisters thanksgiving and Christmas party.  I will encourage them to share something they are thankful for the year.

Like my pastor claimed in the beginning of 2015 “You crown the year with Your goodness.” –Ps 65:11.  

Regardless 2015 is your peak or pit, you’re breathing and moving you have something to be thankful for. Be like the one out of ten that Jesus healed, came back and thank Him! Jesus asked, “Were not all ten cleansed? Where are the other nine?  Has no one returned to give praise to God except this foreigner?” Then he said to him, “Rise and go; your faith has made you well.” – Lk17:17-19  Let’s us give honour and appreciation when honour is due. “Do you owe respect? Then give it. Do you owe honour? Then show it.”- Rom13:7

Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name. Ps100:4

Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever. 1Chron16:34 

Some of the sisters are thankful for a good year. Others are thankful that they are still here and standing even though it is a challenging & dramatic year! We are all grateful that God is with us in the pit and peak! There are plenty of laughter and a few teary eyes. This year each one receive a scented candle. The symbolic reason of a candlelight is a reminder they are the light in the world of darkness. So remember to shine for Jesus.

“I hear His whisper… “VICTORY!”

You are going to make it. You will arise in victory, no matter how it may look to you at this moment. Is it not true that every impossibility yields to My power? All I am will be placed between you and your enemies. You will arise as the mighty one that I have created you to be! Nothing will be able to overcome you, for faith will grow and your love will intensify toward Me. 

Never doubt My power, My grace, My surprising breakthrough on your behalf. Before this week is over you will see My glory shine through the clouds of darkness. You will see your enemies shrink back before you as you move out with My Name and My victory. Watch what I will do before this year is over. Your will jump out into 2016 with the songs of victory!” – Passion Translation

Father’s Love [Father’s Day]

IMG_3382.JPG

Good Day, Beautiful People!

In the South, we are celebrating Father’s Day, first Sunday in September, Spring. We honour and celebrate the men in our world, natural father, spiritual father and Heavenly Father for how they love and shape us. I feel and pray for people who suffer the loss their dads through death or separated due to unforeseen circumstance or choose to remain absent in their lives. Pray for kids that lost their dads, have confident in God, their Heavenly Dad loves them and He deploys angels minister to them, watch over them, protect them and ensure they are safe from any harm cause by evil device. Pray that spiritual Dads will continue to stand in the gap for the spiritual children in their sphere.

The nostalgic side of me pops up especially on special occasion, I can’t help myself but think of my Dad and miss him daily. My Dad had promoted to eternity since 4th March 2004. [My prayer and hope is that he chose grace again before he walked into infinity. I stand in the hope and believe I’ll see you on the other side of eternality.] To the world, you are one nice person who work hard for your family. To us, you are the world.
My Dad, William Soh BT, was born 26th August 1941. Life was never easy and straight forward for him. His Dad died in Second World War. His Mom could not cope financially with three kids. Dad was the youngest and smallest child. Consequently, she gave my Dad up to a distance relative for adoption. Dad was kind, funny at times, generous, strongwill, determined, resilient, strong, serious and industrious man. He worked diligently in the day and persevering studied night classes to upgrade himself for better qualification. He worked his way up to the top of his profession as a Marine Engineer with PSA and SJSY. Looking back, vaguely that at one stage, he was given a great position in a huge company with lots of overseas assignment. He started to make decent money to provide for us. For few years, we hardly see him. He came back home for a short break bought us gifts and flew back to work. It did put a strain in term of long distance relationship between Dad and Mom and us, kids. What a huge sacrifice to ensure our family could move forward to a better standard of living and lifestyle. He missed family and our growing up moments and milestones. Eventually, he gave up the overseas work and chose to take a pay cut and work locally. Dad loved to contribute to community and grassroots level of volunteer serving. He never stop learning new things. He was learning computer course and studying to be Chinese Physician after he retired. He loved different cuisine, attempted to do french cooking and cooked for us special treats when he had free time and when he retired.

My favourite memories was Dad and Mom to bring us out to the parks, beach, movies, zoo and to the islands to visit grandparents (my mom’s parents) during our school holiday and weekend that Dad was available.

My fondest childhood memory was as a family, Dad, Mom and I went to church together. It was a small traditional church. In my flashback, I reminisce that I skip and prance down the aisle trying to choose a seating area at one of the solid mahogony pews. Dad was actively involved in serving as a choir member and as an usher. Dad always suit up, Sunday Best clothes when we headed to church Sunday morning regardless rain or shine. Oh, how we love Sundays! One day, we came back from church he was really upset. He told Mom “From now onward we are not going to church!” I could not remember the reason. I had asked Mom on various occasion she could not tell me the reason Dad got so offended. Mom has a shocking memory. All she said was it happened ages ago, so could not recollect the incident. As a young child, 3 or 4 years old, I didn’t know what was happening. I just knew my happy Sunday morning routine was squashed. Dad was not the same ever. He seemed more aloof, strict, discplinery then approachable. He also has some bad company who influenced him in alcohol and smoking. So thankful, he gave up smoking for us and reduced his alcohol intake later part of his life. I felt that I regained some part of my Dad back.

My Dad taught me to live life to the fullest. Despite of bad breaks, poverty and lousy situation you can rise above that, never give up, never stop learning new things, continual education, be generous to charities and be a contributor to society.

I made a promise myself never be so offended that I cannot forgive, let go and move on. The truth is people will disappoint, betray and offend us from time to time. I’m sure dad was not the only one that walked away from church and God due to offense. Sadly, we like to equated people especially leaders to God’s nature and behaviour.

Our Heavenly Dad is way more loving, caring, bigger, stronger, protective than any natural and spiritual dads can ever be. He loves us that much to give us His only son, Jesus and the freedom to choose whether to accept His love. Well knowing we may not love Him back at all. How deep is Heavenly Dad’s love! How vast is His love!
