I was an active church goer many many years ago. I would go with my Aunt to the Thursday night Chinese prayer group. One day, a lady - Mrs. S - was sharing the story about a guy who always questioned why some people were better than him, having more friends, having more money, more successful.... and he often asked that God bring him all these.

Mrs. S went on to say: Why do we always want to compare against those who are doing better than us? In doing so, we often forget about what had been given to us. Look around those people who are not doing as good as you are, they might not have what you have and they might want to be like you! And look harder again at these people, some who cannot walk, some who cannot talk, some who has no family members and know no God! Shouldn't we be appreciative of what we have? Instead of praying for more, we should be thankful to God that we have a healthy body, mind and soul that we can walk on the earth, sing praises to the Lord and be surrounded by people we love.

Somehow I remember this particular prayer session very well partly because I disagreed with what she said. I believe that we should always "look up" and work towards a better life. Why do we have to compare to those who are inferior? Determined, I grew up holding on to this belief so dearly.

However, of late this particular story during my church-going years keeps playing in my mind. I ponder on the lesson Mrs S told and start to think of it from a different perspective. Mrs S was right when she said we should be thankful for having what we have. I am thankful to God for what I have. And I always pray that God keeps my family and people I loved healthy and happy. For their happiness will bring me happiness. And I also pray that God takes me through the test he put on me, for I believe he will lead me the way.

There is a Christian Fellowship in my company that held weekly gathering for prayer during lunch hour. A mailing list was created to update the list members on activities and share information. Every now and then, I will receive emails inviting me to join the weekly gathering but I have never attended any of them.

This afternoon, a fellow member called and asked that I come over. I hesitated for a while and off I went. For the first time, I joined them. A colleague first led the prayer by reading the bible and sharing his experience. Then others followed to share their stories on how God touch their life and how their prayers were answered. What I gain most out of this gathering is it reminded me the power of prayer.

Do you have a special someone who helps chase away the dark cloud and brings sunshine to you? I have.

There is a very special person that can cheer me up almost all the time. When I am feeling down, I would call that person and a little chat would make me feel better. Sometime, sending few text messages make me feel much lighter too.

Life Goes On

It has been so long that I didn't login to blogger. My mind was pre-occupied with lots of thing. At time, it seems that I just want to run away from reality. Then I sat down, regrouped my thoughts, and managed to clear up my mind partly.

What the heck! Life goes on! And suddenly I notice how I treasure happy moment by having a smile to myself.

Random photoblog - continued

So, what was that shadow from the previous photoblog?

Ok, here it is. It is a crafted wooden deer, made from sticks and the shell (of don't know what fruit/plant). Highly fragile item that Sister'S bought it from some flea market. She loves to collect weird things. I have photos of her other collection. Will post it when I am lazy to blog. ;)
