Blessed Happy New 2010!

I've never feel so relaxed the whole year (since 2009 started) till a few days ago! Seriously. I'm outdated.. In movies, even shopping and what not. Anyway, just a simple and short update.

1. Sunway Pyramid with cuzzy wuzzy cousins (and bro-short while) YESTERDAY, 30th Dec

2. Sunway Pyramid again TODAY (am not complaining ;p) with bestie and Denise

I've never found such awesome shoppers that has pretty alike taste in fashion clothings and most of all, can walk as fast as I do while shopping from store to store! Awesome lah. ;) ahaha.
As I close this year, I want to thank God for first of all, being my God, my Saviour, Bestest Friend, my Listener, Comforter, Encourager and lots more. Thank You, God for every single thing though there were times I disobeyed You, times I forsaken You, times I disappoint You, broken Your heart... but I want You to know (and I know You know) that I LOVE YOU, FATHER GOD. Knowing You, loving and serving You was the best (bester, bestest) thing that has happened to me! I'm forever Yours. =)
To my friends out there, I'm sorry if I've hurted you or offended you in any ways. My most sincere apologies. Thank you for standing my me watching me fall, grow and also encouraged me all along the way. You are the best. I may not have thanked you or showed my appreciation whoever you are, but I've learnt that good friends are real hard to find! Thus, I treasure every single good friend that I have like crazee! Ppl say, diamonds are a girl's best friend. To me, best friends are even better than diamonds. No words can describe whast best friends are to me. Soo sorry if I've made you feel 'geli'. But whatever it is, thank YOU!!! =)

more. than. life. could. bring.

Blessed Christmas everybody!!!

May you find hope, joy, love and peace again this season of Christmas! May you find your true home and purpose.

Christmas season is always a busy season where finals are here, camps are on, christmas dramas and college events are going on. Or at least for me. It has been a tiring nevertheless exciting time seeing how frustrated myself can be at times when exams are near and you have responsibilities in church at the same time, seeing the smiles and laughters on your friends' faces, seeing hearts united as one, many 'hiccups' as well but God was in control. It was such a joy to serve God though I struggled so sooo much this month in putting God first above my exams. Yes, exams. I tried handling and accepting tasks which I can do on my own strength and said NO to other tasks coz I just wanted to have time to just relax off and study for exams.

One week before exams, my masterplan was to stay home- chill and focus on finals. But on that week, was the packed worship practises for camp (thank God for each of them who never really complained. They are awesome!). Also, drama practises which I initially refused to join. Till Siemens asked me again, then God spoke to my heart it's like you either accept me or reject me. Of course, knowing if this is what God wants I'll join. In my heart, I was really thinking God this is so crazy! Exams next week, Lord! I'm not even ready... Later on, during practice Aunty Karine who was in charged of the drama asked if I can be in charged of the signboards for props though I thought she asked the wrong person coz firstly, standing beside me is Sheryn- the creative girl in arts! Secondly, exams! In the end, I said, CAN. Coz I know God led me to this drama practice. But thank God, 2 days before the real Christmas drama, I brought it to cell and Sheryn, Fee Vien and some aunties helped. God surely will make a way when you are doing things according to His will. So in the end, done! yay.. that's 13 dec btw..

Finals- 16th Dec..

In between those dates, coordinate time for practice and attend worship practice, study a lil and feeling so weared out..

But guess what?!

God has been so good and merciful to me. I realized one thing this year or actually since I started to serve God more and more, God has given me this ability to study and remember facts of chapters whenever I spend time studying even if it's a few days before exams. I thought it was just that time, but after many exams, I realized God has blessed me with this ability to store alot of information as effectively as studying earlier. God redeemed my time that whenever I study, my mind is very focused.

I have alot more to share, what I've shared is only 1/4 of what happened in December for my life. If you want to know more, you can ask me. Can't write all. teehee!

Anyway, I would like you to drop by for our last Sunday of the year service. If you would still like to celebrate Christmas (okay, maybe not Christmas, but New Year) but you think its too late, scrap that thought off coz.... you still can! Drop by Grand Dorsett Hotel (formerly known as Sheraton Hotel) directly opposite @ SS12 this Sunday 10:30am. It's never too late to give your heart to Jesus. I'll be leading worship this Sunday. We'll be singing You Raised Me Up. Yup, by Josh Groban. God has indeed raised us up this year I believe, drawing us closer to the plans He has for our life, seen and unseen.

Have a wonderful Christmas! Christmas isn't Christmas until it happens in your heart- the story of the birth of Jesus that came to this world because He loves us. There's no greater love than one who can give His life for you.

Come! Come and you will not regret if you have found this love without condition. Hope to see you =)

Blessed Christmas again ya'll!

Grieving with hope.

Spending 10 minutes to blog. =)

Today, I've received a heart-wrenching news- Uncle Joseph Lim (Calvin's and Collin's dad) passed away. Aunty Wendy and Hon Wei forwarded the message to pray for him when we received the news that he fell from the roof right to the drain. Apparently, he was fixing the leakage on his roof.

Tears rolled down my cheeks as soon as I received the news that he passed away not too long after I received the message to pray for him. It's like I almost couldn't believe it as it happened way too fast to actually think again that he's no longer here. I just saw him on Sunday, which was 3 days ago.

I can't believe it.

I still can't!

But I want to thank God for this gift- Uncle Joseph Lim. He has always been one of the nice guys in church who will randomly go up front to sing a song for his wife while strumming a guitar or even for guest speakers like Pastor Ann. I think many will remember him for his gentle and kind soul within him. Even right now, I have no idea why but a peace within my heart assuring me that he is happy in heaven. I know God orders Uncle Jo's steps. Every step of the way. May the God of all comfort comfort his family at this moment of time. My deepest and heartfelt condolence to Aunty Stephanie, my youth friends- Calvin and Collin and their sister.

Uncle Jo's legacy as High Praise King of Rock and Roll (a.k.a. Elvis Presley) will continue to live in our hearts.

Life is way too fragile. Treasure every moment you have with your loved ones- people who are precious to you... before it's too late!
