When I am sad, I pray.

A few good friends enjoying time together at a mangrove in Johor some months back. After a time of playing they turned to writing on the sand. Words like "God is Love," "I love You", "Friends Forever."


A little space away, Jo was writing something. I wondered what she had written..


She stepped away, and I saw these words, "When I am Sad,  I Pray."


How lovely those words. It is a reminder to me, that when times get tough, when things are down, I can  turn to GOD and pray, then allow God to lift me up and carry  me on.


On our way out of the mangrove, we found this lovely seed, in the shape of a heart. Beautiful isn't it. How beautiful are God's creations. :)
  Remember to love your family, 
hug your children,
 tell your spouse you love him/her,
hug your parents.
 Switch off the computer and TV and spend quality time with people who mean the most. :)

Happy Chinese New Year to all who are celebrating.  :)

How grateful you must be for such a sweet child. And what a relief to know that in the hard times that happen with life she will have the skills and knowledge necessary to deal with them.

I guess, that's the most important part of parenting to me, guidng them, that they will be able to make right decisions and knowing GOd is their strength.

Lovely words and reminder, really. That seed is so special, it's like a message to you..:)

Yes, switch off the TV and spend quality time with your family but sometimes when you're about to do that, they get angry with you for turning off the tv..lol.
