Trust...Hope

Sun melting, splattering like hot wax, splashing the sky with hues of yellow-orange, pink, purple and red. Fluttering birds preparing to flock home before sundown, chatter merrily, impatiently…howeverly. I drive home with peace in my heart (or so I think), eagerly anticipating the weekend, the week’s work completed.


Wait, the above was just an imagination (Photo taken in June.) In reality, it's been gloomy, rainy, thundering and all. I'm loving the coolness it brings, the children hate the imprisonment that comes with it. haha...

 At the back of my mind, there are thoughts for dear ones who are not well. A dear friend battling with cancer, my aunt who fell down and shattered her shoulder bone, a dear niece admitted to ER just a while ago with severe vomiting.

 First thing I did was to call my aunt. Instead of a solemn voice, a cheerful voice greeted me at the other end. She has had her surgery done and now has a brand new metal piece in replacement of her shoulder bone. She chirped “Humpty Dumpty fell down and broke her arm,” then  burst into heart roaring laughter. To me that is such courage, that is there due to her years of leaning on her pillar of strength, which is the Lord.


 The Lord,  He who dresses the Lilies of the field, who feeds the sparrows and provides them with shelter, He who decorates the sky each morning and evening. I pray that daily, I will learn to trust Him more, for self growth, and for the healing of these dear ones.

A picture Jo made for my aunt. She used poster colour amd yellow glitter to create her plant, which she says is magical. Will be mailing it off soon.

Last month we also celebrated my dear hubby's birthday. Nel badly wanted to buy something for her daddy with her own pocket money. But because I wasn't able to take her shopping, she ended up giving her daddy this here below. :)  Hubby was surprised to find money in the envelop! haha..He doesn't plan on spending the money, and is going to keep it coz he thinks this present is too cute and meaningful. :)
