牛(New) 年快乐!

Lunar New Year Day 1!

*Prosperity in the midst of recession? Peace and love in the family even in the midst of fighting? Faith and hope even when everyone else are questioning?*

So many things i can't control... Oh how I need to bring it to the Lord even more...

26 days late, but i've not got much proper resolutions written down yet. I shall take it slow..
But with a new season of my relationship with God, i've decided to study the life of Jesus in depth, beginning with Philip Yancey's book 'The Jesus I never knew'. Perhaps with more understanding of Jesus, who reveals God, I might be able to become a radical imitator of Christ and different from what society's norms, in a Christian manner. Even at chapter 3 today, i've realised that i'm so much similar to a Pharisee... Excited at what i'm going to discover!!! The NT module has led me to love the Gospels and Revelations the most. The beginning and the end... :)

And a new chapter in life! Just celebrated my 21st birthday with my Dong gua, Patrick and Leney. Cos i'll be overseas during mine, and Architect donggua will prob be stuck doing submissions. Patrick is most prob speaking Jap, playing the guitar and drums, discipling at the same time. And Charlene is the poor gal who can't meet all of us even tho she wants to. (In a humourous way, it's something like that la. Haha.) We're all 21 now! Shared our 2 wishes out of 3 and prayed with each other. I shall put mine down. So that i remember:
1. That the 4 of us will continue meeting up with each other as long as we live. Avg 4 times a year!
2. That we'll always be passionate about what we do. (even passionately angry at injustice, passionately bold to make changes, passionately excited at our decisions, but most of all... have the passion knowing that we're doing what is right and pleasing in God's eyes)

Forward to day 2!
