Heaven came down and Glory filled my soul!

This is what I caught on camera as I stepped into my corridor this afternoon from attending a Christian burial service in Kulai, Malaysia. Posted by Hello

Do you know where we're headed to?

I thought I had it all planned out, all set and all scheduled. At least that's what my PDA told me. I was to cook dinner for the gals (Gwyneth, Erica and Eveline) at 6pm and then we're to head out to have a couple of rounds of tennis and squash, perhaps even swim at 8pm. It was not to be. Dinner was pushed up to 5.30pm, Squash and tennis was never played. Instead we found ourselves at "Garden of Remembrance" a Christian Columbarium attending a vigil service tonight. A fellow church sister's grandma had passed away and she flew back in from Dublin.

Once again I am reminded that death is a reality and it comes unexpectedly. No one can say for sure when it'll come. Am I too young to die? (Nope, at least not biologically) What eats me most about non-Christian funerals, is how clueless people are about where their loved one has gone. Everyone trying to get a good priest or good funeral procession to "escort" the dead to heaven, a better place in hell or to be reincarnated as some animal. What more can a priest who can't save himself to heaven do for the dead?

After all the rituals, crying and burning of paper possessions, are we really sure of where our loved one has headed to? God's word says that our bodies will wear and give way one day, but our souls are eternal.(Luke16:19-31) Are we then sure of where our souls are headed to?

16For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
17For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.
18Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God's one and only Son
~John 3:16-18

John 3:16-18 tells us exactly where we are all heading to. God has told us that we all will go to either 1 of 2 destinations. verse 16 tells us how to get to heaven and verse 18 tells us how not to get to heaven.

Jesus said "...and whoever lives and believes in me will never die.
Do you believe this? "(John11:26)

I do. And I'm comforted that I'll get to see the people I love again in heaven. If you get there before I do, watch out for me, I'll be there by and by.

Anyone can tell me what plant is this? It's definitely a herb. I once thought it was thyme, but now it doesn't look like thyme. I forgot to label when I planted, now I'm clueless what plant came out..

Let's see. I had lavender seeds, thyme and rosemary that most look like these plants. I thought it smells like lavender and looks a lil like lavender, but then I'm not sure if lavender actually can grow in Singapore. as for rosemary, I don't think I planted the seeds. And thyme, well, it jus looks different from thyme. I've nv smelt thyme before so i can't tell if it is thyme.. Posted by Hello

Well, thought i could relieve some financial burden off Mum and Dad. Praise God! As I continue to pray for His leading in this new area trusting in Jehovah Jireh - my Provider.
I kept my promise, i went.
I was there, as promised.
But the other wasn't.
We did not meet as agreed.

It hurts to feel forgotten.
It hurts to feel unimportant.
Or perhaps more, it hurts to seem so foolish to keep a promise that only I felt was important for a year.

Thank God...
Am reminded not to put my trust in man but in Him.
Am comforted that 'tho others may not care, but He cares.
Am just glad I kept my promise as He would have wanted me to.
Am relief that I can put away this burden in my heart.
Am just thankful that His will was done.

everything was a lil surreal this evening.

p.s. Sorry if this entry is vague and ambiguous. I once could tell someone everything, but now I realise I don't seem to have anyone I can tell this to, 'cept God.

A promise made a year ago.

I'm heading to the botanical gardens now to keep a promise I made a year ago. I'm not quite sure what to expect either. Am praying for God's grace to know what to do.
