Long Weekend Gone

It was Chinese New Year holidays a few days ago and I can't believe that the long weekend has just gone so fast! I remember the time when I was so excited for the long weekend and I made a lot of plans for it. But it just came and gone in an instant! :) Maybe I just enjoyed the long weekend so much that I didn't want it to end. We had bowling, malling and a nice dinner on Friday, then went to Ikea on Saturday, hang out on our friends place on Sunday after Church, then rested the whole day on Monday. Well, for me that how a holiday is supposed to be spent. There's time spent on malling and going around different stores, time spent with friends and of course, time spent in the house doing a bit of house chores and relaxing. Oh, there's not such times like these.. hope more long weekends will come.

No Music Classes in School

My kids are going to school now. It's actually more of a homeschool learning center where they still use homeschool materials but they do in a classroom setting. My kids are really enjoying their 'school' experience with new friends and different physical activities every week. They have bowling, skating, water gun fights and etc. The only thing that I think is  missing in their curriculum is music. I think we have to find our own music friend and let them learn what they want to learn. But overall, I'm still very thankful that my kids are happy with their new school.

The Marvel Of God's Grace

There are many recorded miracles throughout history, from the miracles written within the pages of the Old Testament to the miracles that go unnoticed in our lives each and every day. Each moment is a chance to encounter the divine, to see Jesus face to face, and to witness a miracle. Churches across the globe take note of extraordinary experiences, miraculous healings, and divine intervention every day. However, this largely goes unnoticed.

In modern times, many miracles, that have yet to be explained by modern science, speak of the wideness of God's grace. From cancer that mysteriously disappears without treatment to humans coming back to life without medical intervention, God is always at work. But are we ready to listen? Are we ready to make the changes needed to so that we can prepare to meet Jesus in person? 

Recently God appeared, as he did in biblical times, coming down from heaven as an apparition within the clouds. The image was caught on camera and became the subject of controversy as hosts of the evening news debated its meaning. However, for some the message was clear. God is making his presence known. He loves us and desires a relationship with each and every one of us. If you witnessed such a miracle, how would you answer God's call?

Another miracle occurred when a young man from Georgia was shot and pronounced dead. Miraculously the boy came back to life and today lives gloriously retelling of God's mercy which raised him from the dead. 

Miraculous events surround us each and every day. God's many miracles are how he is able to show himself to the world and allow us to know his presence. Through these close one-on-one encounters with the divine, God is able to change hearts and minds. Once a person has encountered the presence of Jesus in this close and personal way, they have a choice. They can either hand over their life to God and become a vessel for his change, or they can ignore his call. Again, how will you answer God's call?
