My CNY this year can be considered pretty miserable. At least, on the last day of work, we managed to hang out at the Breeks for lunch (our 'version' of 'sou gong fan'). But on the next day, my stomach felt terrible, with the patties and the spagetti sauce that was not digested. Eww....... I just puke it all out the next day. Morever, with the 2+ mandarin oranges I had, I couldn't even clean up the house on New Year's Eve.
New Year's Day started with church........ and one song that struck me was..
The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases,
His mercies never come to an end,
they are new every morning, new every morning,
Great is thy faithfulness of God,
Great is thy faithfulness..
-> it just mean that God is merciful to us everytime, and it just renewed everyday...
So, if we choose to ask God to help us in whatever circumstances with us, he will be by our side to overcome the problem with us together. In deed, we could sing, "With Christ in the vessel we can smile at the storm".
Oh yea.. and i liked the hillsongs "mighty to save" album that i borrowed..... especially the song "At the cross"...
Second day was going around houses.... not much at all this year.
Only collected a handful....... from 2 houses.
Kinda sad to know from my baby sitter that her husband passed away suddenly last Christmas. She was still grieving. She was still tearing while telling us the whole story. Since I started working, I always thought that I would pop by to her house once in a while to spend time with her but never did. I think I shall make it a difference this year. I hope I will, but not too sure I can.
Third day -> schoolmates reunion... geee...
