With Thanksgiving

And this will be my last post for 2007.

A quick summary. This year has been a tough going year for me. I just feel that I had gone through much than the previous year. There isn't any major thing that happened to me except for one. But there is a lot of little little things that kept hitting along the way that would have cause you to fall. In this year, I have indeed learn much and a time of waiting upon the Lord at many times.

At the end of 2006, I took a step of faith to stretch myself further to take a west cg. I had to manage my time even better. Time was already so tight for me. For those who knew me, every single minute is being use to the max. And I took on a part-time degree course with 2-3 time of lesson every week which I really have felt God has been speaking to me for the past 2 years ever since I finished my SOT in 2004. I have to miss the Tue meetings and change my cg day very often. I literally had left with no time. And in the month of December, my church started a new service back in Jurong West building. My cg was allocated to go for service instead. This a another big sacrifice. Not only I have to travel, but Ricky & I are in different services. Sunday is usually a family day for me. For God, anything! I am still alive here today. =)

So I wanna thank all of you who had walked closely with me for 2007.

Firstly, I want to the big thanks to God, my Father, Savior and Friend. He has lifted me up when I was down. Many times that I cried, He is there to bring me peace and comfort and shower me with His love. He shared all of my burdens together. All these while, when I was insecure, He affirms me again. He given me wisdom, strength and lots of grace through this year. Thank God, I want to love you forever and ever and ever and ever......

Next, is of my dear husband Ricky. Thank you so much. Without you, I wouldn't have been able to do so much things. You have empower me in every area of my life. Thank you dear for always being so patient with me, waiting for me when I am late, tolerate my occasional mood swings. Thank you for always giving your best to me. Thank you for all your sacrifices. I love you very much.

Yah Lan. She is my leader. I am so thankful to have her. She believes in me. Just a look from her makes my heart melt. In her eyes, I sense the real love of God. I see Jesus in her. Yah Lan, thank you for have faith in me and all of your grace towards me. If not for you I will not have been able to make it till today. Thanks for all your love.
