:: New life in Brisbane. ::
Thank God for bringing us here, as daddy has finally become the spritual leader of our family!!! Well mummy is struggling with fears and ocpd-ness and learning to let go, and we are given the chance to depend on God as a family! Well meizi is learning to love studying law as well, and I'm going to start school once again!!! Most of all, thank God for giving me friends back in Singapore...friends whom I know are there for me when I need.
Yueling, thanks for being my best friend. I know you trust me and share with me your concerns...Thanks for being so willing to listen to me and allthe naggy stuff I have to tell you! I really hope that one day you can nag me about things too! :P I really love you and wish you would accept Jesus as your Saviour one day! He is the source of my joy and hope! I want that for you too!!! Anyways, thanks dearie, you never fail to remember me on every occasion possible, always sending me lovely presents and thinking of me on every holiday trip! I'm listening to the 10 over music cds you burnt for me long ago...here in brisbane im so thankful for the chinese and canto songs!!! I miss you bestest fren!!! I will try to be back in Singapore for your 24th birthday next year!!! :)
Cheryl, thanks for being my spiritual partner. I know that whenever I have any needs, you will be there praying for me and encouraging me! I'm so thankful that we both can confide in each other all deepest and darkest things about ourselves and our relationships...really so different with God in the centre of our friendship! It's so funny that we never really missed each other in Singapore though we rarely met up, yet over here in Brisbane our friendship has grown even closer and more intimate!!! Let's continue to grow together towards holiness!!
Joanna, my playmate and sister! I know nursing is so tough, yet you never forget your family and friends!!! You are an amazing dear! I know that you are so tired with studying and working at the same time, yet you are a great testimony to all those around you! Thank you for treating me as family, as your sister and good friend! I never forget you and always am praying for your strength and health as you support your family! I believe that the Lord WILL send you someone who will love and cherish you likeyou have been a blessing to all those around you!! Hold on unswervingly to our hope in Jesus Christ! Hebrews 10.
Samuel Boey Wai Kit, my samy dear...you have been so supportive of me, accepting me for who I am and teaching me so much to grow in faith and love. Thank you for showing me what 1 corinthians 13 really means!!! Though we are so far apart, yet we have commited to come together consistently, praying and exploring the Lord's Word with each other!!! Thank you for waiting for me, and now for waiting with me... And of course, for even coming to spend this Christmas week with me!!! One week only though :( im so scared that i will not bear to let you leave after Christmas week, yet I know that the Lord is moulding us both in faith, hope and love! We will not grow apart as long as we are growing together towards our heavenly Father who loves us and has a higher purpose for us! Don't know how our future will be, but I know for sure what the big 'C' is: Commitment. Let's be commited to obeying the Lord our God and be there for each other, to admonish and teach each other the Word. :) I am praying for whatever career path you choose...for it to be a job that you can grow in holiness, where we can both serve and praise the Lord together! :)
Oh yes, and thank God for bsf...what seemed initially to be just to keep mummy company, has become God's way of speaking to me and admonishing me! I am humbled yet again by God your amazing and awesome way of calling out to your child! Many things to be thankful for, all because Jesus you died on the cross for sinners such as me. Your grace. Undeserving favour. Not works but grace alone that saves. Saving Grace.
Oh how I long to dwell in your presence forever oh Lord!
