Good Friday

icon_ltgray_open_quoteFor Christ’s love compels us, because we are convinced that one died for all, and therefore all died.
And he died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for him who died for them and was raised again.icon_ltgray_close_quote

The Rising of the Sun…

Saturday and the greatest gift…

icon_ltgray_open_quoteFor it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.icon_ltgray_close_quote
~ Ephesians 2:8-10

icon_ltgray_open_quote For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him icon_ltgray_close_quote
~ John 3:16-17

The gift that no one else can give. The gift of life eternal.
Oh darling, my precious, the one I love. My heart rejoices and tears of joy are overwhelming. Beyond words, beyond anything, it is pure happiness.


icon_ltgray_open_quoteHow beautiful you are, my darling!
   Oh, how beautiful!
   Your eyes behind your veil are doves.
   Your hair is like a flock of goats
   descending from Mount Gilead.
All beautiful you are, my darling;
   there is no flaw in you.icon_ltgray_close_quote

Reflections at Yosemite

12053 days… 289272 hours, 17356320 minutes, and … 1041379200 seconds.
A lot of time passed, yet, it is time to give thanks to:

God, through whom all things are possible.
My saviour, my friend, my comforter, my teacher and my guide.
As the Lord says in Psalms 23, He is my shepherd, I shall lack nothing.
He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters,
He restores my soul. He guides me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.
Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.
Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.

Dad and Mom
Who taught me how to live, and in all things, showed me how to love. They shaped me and moulded me and had only my best in their mind. Thanks is all I can say though it be nothing compared to what you have done, for there is nothing that I can give, that will equal what you have given.

My Darling Mun Leng
She is my evidence of God’s ultimate goodness and grace. She makes me feel so ashamed that I asked God for so little though at that time, I thought I asked for the world. It’s like you asked for the world which in the end when God answers your prayers, you realized that God has given you more than a Queen when all your prayers have amounted to nothing more than a servant girl. Like no other, more precious than life itself. Thank you darling for being who you are, being there for me and being you.
Sixty queens there may be, and eighty concubines, and virgins beyond number; but my dove, my perfect one, is unique.

My Cousin Alice
For all the times, the letters, the emails, the silly stuff we did. You don’t know how much I appreciate, and remember those times. Life has sent us down different places and paths, yet I still remember when we did all the batty things and just lived life to its fullest. You’re like the sister I never had and there’s so much we’ve shared and will continue to share.

Kong Weng
For all the times I called you up and asked you silly questions and scenarios. For all the advice you have given and the time you’ve spent. Uncertainties you’ve made clear, your prayers are appreciated and they’ve helped and most of all, truly am I blessed to call you friend.

Jeff Chok
For all the trips, the shutter clicks and mirror slaps, the miles and the airports. For the lines of PHP code and WebAperture. From Low Yat trips to the tentacle-thingy, film rolls, digital cameras, megabytes to gigabytes. ‘L’ lenses and EOS. Just to say I appreciate the fellowship and the blessing you have been to my life.
