It’s like more than half a year since my retirement from government service. I had always enjoyed working in JKR. Had good and friendly colleagues and bosses too.
I thank God for my family, friends, job, everything …….. Everything I have is from Him – the very air I breathe. That’s why I give thanks daily. I don’t know why but my heart just can’t stop giving thanks. Thank you Lord!

Reflecting on the past certainly bring back wonderful, wonderful memories. My lovely beloved children. Hmmmmm……….. Thank you Lord again. They are about the most wonderful gifts to me. They were once just a bundle – so cute and small. But now all have grown into adults, having their own lives living apart from us parents. I am happy and sad at the same time. But I am thankful how God has been with them. Thank you Lord.

My second child invited me for a holiday with her for two weeks. Those were just wonderful time with her. Thank you Lord. You are the one who made it possible. But I also want to thank my child for this holiday she had planned for me. By the grace of God, I travelled on the same flight back with her colleague. Coincidence? I thank God once again for I know He had walked every step with me and even provided me a chaperone. A chaperone who told me how my child loved me so much to sacrifice some of her own holidays that she might save for my holidays. Tears welled up in my eyes – tears of joy and thankfulness. Thank you my lovely child and thank you Lord!

My prayer , O Lord is continue to guard our hearts and give us faith that this family will always love you, do our best to you for you have given us Your best.

Growing Deeper In Love With My Beloved Spouse

With 5 growing children in the family, I confess that I sometimes do not have much time for my beloved husband.

Balancing between career, children, husband, church and housework did really spread my time thin. But it was really good to be busy. Through it all, I have learned to treasure the 24 hours of each day. It amazes me how much we can do each day if time is well managed. The moments of fellowship with children and spouse were much treasured and appreciated.

Today, all my children are not with me. It is not that I am sad. I am happy for them for what they are doing in their lives today. I have chosen early retirement from government service to help my husband in his business. It's really quite exciting. There are many new things to learn. Sometimes I can be quite lost but I am enjoying this new 'adventure'. It is good to be always calling and asking of the Lord for guidance, knowledge, wisdom, etc., etc. Things are anticipated to become more hectic when the factory starts operation. So, God grant me strength.

With the absence of our beloved children, there is nobody else but both of us, husband and wife. So, we now have more time for each other. We sort of purposed and pledged to love and care for each even more than before. Amazing! The love grows stronger and deeper. Why? It is because we know there is nobody else but both of us to spend the golden years together. We either choose to treasure and love each other or become impatient with each other.

We pray God will bond us in His love that this marriage will glorify Him. Even as I write this, I know out there are my 5 lovely children who will always love us and care for us.

Thank you, my Almighty God. I love you always, my LORD!

I give thanks to God. By His miracle, I have managed to balance between work and bringing up my five lovely children. They are fine children. I give all glory to God. It has always been their Heavenly Father who has guided them, loved them and nurtured them.

“Only be careful, and watch yourselves closely so that you do not forget the things your eyes have seen or let them slip from your heart as long as you live. Teach them to your children and to their children after them.”

I watched closely as I walk with God. He is love, compassion, grace and mercy. He is Almighty, Holy, Glorious. He has given me His best! I am overwhelmed – so unworthy yet loved, forgiven and reconciled to Him. Will this love ever slip from my heart?

No! I have to teach them to my children when I sit at home and when I walk along the road, when I lie down and when I get up. “Come, my children, listen to me; I will teach you the fear of the LORD. Serve Him faithfully with all your heart; consider what great things he has done for you. For the eyes of the LORD are on those who fear him, on those whose hope is in his unfailing love. The angel of the LORD encamps around those who fear him, and he delivers them. As a father has compassion on his children, so the LORD has compassion on those who fear him. The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom; all who follow his precepts have good understanding.”

I did not do much except teach them what God instructed. I pray that God will give them faith and obedience so that they will not depart from His Word - the lamp to their feet and a light to their path.

“For I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, but to give you hope and a future.”

Indeed, these five children are Yours. Thank you for your plans to prosper them and not to harm them but to give them hope and a future. Your word comforts me and I’ll keep it in my heart. What a wonderful thought to start this new year!

A happy and blessed new year!
