我感恩

picture by Jimmy
我感恩 . . . . .

在每夜和我枪棉被的伴侣
因为那表示他不是和别人在一起

有只回看电视而不洗碗的青少年
因为那表示他乖乖在家而不是流连在外

我缴税, 因为那表示我有工作

衣服越来越紧, 因为那表示我吃得很好

有阴影陪伴我的举动
因为那表示我在明亮的阳光下

能找到最远那个停车位
因为那表示我还能走路, 还有我有车驾

有巨额的电费帐单
因为那表示我冷气吹得很爽

教堂礼拜时我身后五音不全的女士
因为那表示我还听得到

有一堆衣服要洗烫
因为那表示我有衣服穿

一天结束是的疲劳和肌肉酸痛
因为那表示我有拼命工作的能力

一大早被响起的闹钟吵醒
因为那表示我还活着

有待修整的草地,待清理的窗户, 和待修理的排水沟
因为那表示我有个家

我感恩 . . . . .

DO IT ANYWAY

People are often unreasonable and self centered
FORGIVE THEM ANYWAY
If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives
BE KIND ANYWAY
If you are honest, people may cheat you
BE HONEST ANYWAY
If you find happiness, people may be jealous
BE HAPPY ANYWAY
The good you do today maybe forgotten tomorrow
DO GOOD ANYWAY
Give the world you the best you have and it may never be enough
GIVE YOUR BEST ANYWAY
For you see in the end its between you and God
IT NEVER WAS BETWEEN YOU AND THEM ANYWAY
By Mother Teresa

不一定


得到不一定能长久
失去不一定不再有
转身不一定最软弱
躲避不一定逃得过
面对不一定最难受
孤单不一定不快乐

什么事都不一定只有一种选择
选择之后不一定只有一个后果. . .

Mary's Wedding Card

30th March 2008 - Mary's Wedding


Mary has always been a great big sister to our youngsters in church. To me personally, she was the one who drove me to church when I first came to KL and has no car. Also did she brot me for nice foods and introduced me to pasar malam in KL. She was one of the important people who helped me get on my feet when I first came to work in KL. To me she's one of the angels that God has sent and I've always been grateful.

Now that she is getting married, we all rejoice together with her. Together with the cards above signed by brothers and sisters in Pandan, we bought her an oven as wedding gift and house warming gift (one stone hit 2 birds =p). Hope the oven will be practical though.
Anyways, I'd like to wish Mary all the happiness in her marriage. May God bless her marriage and that she and Jackson will always 甜甜密密, 白头到老.

Happy 51st Birthday Mummy

26th April 2008 - Mummy's 51st Birthday

I made a semi pop-up card for her this year. As the card is being opened, the heart will slide along the arch. Got the idea from a card I saw in a shopping mall. The card was preposted (a few days ahead), and response was positive :) .... pleasant surprise.

My sister baked a prune cake, but somehow ended up my mum kinda become the main chef there *.* Later that night they all went out for dinner at apollo and had curry fish head and drunken prawns. Too bad I haven't been there to celebrate birthdays for my family, but my wishes and blessings will always be there.



Happy birthday again Mum.

DECK OF CARDS


It was quiet that day, the guns and the mortars, and land mines for some reason hadn't been heard. The young soldier knew it was Sunday, the holiest day of the week. As he was sitting there, he got out an old deck of cards and laid them out across his bunk.


Just then an army sergeant came in and said ,“Why aren't you with the rest of the platoon?” The soldier replied, "I thought I would stay behind and
spend some time with the Lord.”


The sergeant said, “Looks to me like you're going to play cards.” The soldier said, “No, sir. You see, since we are not allowed to have Bibles or other spiritual books in this country, I've decided to talk to the Lord by studying this deck of cards.”


The sergeant asked in disbelief, “How will you do that?”



"You see the Ace, Sergeant?
It reminds me that there is only one God.



The Two represents the two parts of the Bible,
Old and New Testaments.



The Three represents
the Father, Son, and the Holy Ghost.



The Four stands for the Four Gospels:
Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.



The Five is for the five virgins.
There were ten but only five of them were glorified.



The Six is for the six days it took God
to create the Heavens and Earth.



The Seven is for the day
God rested after making His Creation.



The Eight is for the family of Noah and his wife,
their three sons and their wives –
the eight people God spared
from the flood that destroyed the Earth.



The Nine is for the lepers that Jesus cleansed of leprosy.
He cleansed ten,
but nine never thanked Him.



The Ten represents the
Ten Commandments that God
handed down to Moses on tablets made of stone.



The Jack is a reminder of Satan,
one of God's first angels, but he got kicked out of heaven
for his sly and wicked ways and is now the joker of eternal hell.



The Queen stands for the Virgin Mary.



The King stands for Jesus,
for He is the King of all kings.



When I count the dots on all the cards,
I come up with 365 total, one for every day of the year.


There are a total of 52 cards in a deck;
each is a week - 52 weeks in a year.



The four suits represent the four seasons:
Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter.



Each suit has thirteen cards
there are exactly thirteen weeks in a quarter.
So when I want to talk to God and thank Him,
I just pull out this old deck of cards
and they remind me of all that I have to be thankful for.



The sergeant just stood there.
After a minute, with tears in his eyes and pain in his heart,
he said, "Soldier, can I borrow that deck of cards?"
