He makes all thing beautiful and fulfils all His promises. He is the centre of my life and I love him wholeheartedly. No matter what happens, my trust is in my dearest Abba Father for His ways are higher than my ways and His thoughts higher than mine.

previous entry

didnt have the time to post about the previous entry except to copy it into my blog yesterday ...

sometimes in life things just dont go the way we want it to go, the tight situation and what we feel is not ideal in life happen, we feel so down and heavy ... but it's true somehow after I accepted Christ, even when things don't happen the way i wished it did, I still feel sad but I have a deep comforting feeling in my heart. I just know that God has something better for me. I am not fighting for victory but fighting from victory. I am already very blessed compared to alot others ... I have alot that other don't have. I have peace joy and love within me ... and alot of successes that I really thank God for ... Where would I be w/o Him? I wouldn't dare to think ... perhaps still in that dark alley feeling sad for myself all the time ... haha ...

ok and the BIG day is really drawing near ... just less than 3 weeks away and apparently our house is almost ready! yippee ... i hope to move in after our honeymoon ... hopefully key collection soon ... chose my wedding and evening gown already ... shall not elaborate too much to keep the suspense ... had loads to do before the big day .. all the meetings and coordinating ... but it's fun yet frustrating ... 1.5 wks more to work before i go on a 3 week long leave ... so happy=)

Met up with SM last night ... had ichiban boshi at IMM ... was nice meeting up with ya gal ... think u are my best pal in NJC times ... someone i can just discuss abt life issues and talk so freely with ... thank God for such a friend like you ... so glad you are back in Singapore that we can go "pig" out on ice cream and food =) Hope the shampoo was good for ya lol ... let's meet after my honeymoon again and i'll fill u in with the pics ... been almost 6 years since college time ... oh my ... we've come a long way ... been glad everything didn't change that much ...

ok now i am going to watch my TV ... =) blog later .... argh and I need to pack ... need to shift .......

Down But Not Out - So true

2 Corinthians 4:8–9
8We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; 9persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed.

Before you were a Christian, when something sad or bad happened to you, you cried until you had no more tears left. Your heart simply broke into pieces, and you felt trapped, depressed and totally defeated.

But after you became a Christian, when something bad happens to you, you still cry, but you feel comforted inside. You are sad outwardly, but your heart isn’t heavy. You don’t understand why, but deep down inside you, there is something lifting you up. That something buoyant, which is rising from the inside of you, is the life of Christ in you!

You cannot be completely distressed because Christ in you is the Prince of Peace (Isaiah 9:6) who says to you, “Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” (John 14:27)

Yes, it is a bad situation and you are in a tight spot, but Christ in you is the way, the truth and the life (John 14:6), and He says to you, “It will all be all right. I will provide a way out for you.”

You know you are not defeated because Christ in you is your victory (1 Corinthians 15:57), and He says to you, “You are not fighting for victory, but fighting from victory, for you already have the victory in Me.”

In the past, before you knew Christ, when you were down, you were out. But now, when you are down, you are not out because Christ in you is the hope of glory. (Colossians 1:27) “Hope” in the Bible means “a definite positive expectation of good”.

So Christ in you is the definite positive expectation of a glorious marriage! Christ in you is the definite positive expectation of a glorious family! Christ in you is the definite positive expectation of glorious health for the rest of your life! Christ in you is the definite positive expectation of a glorious life!

Christ in you is the definite positive expectation of all the glories of God revealed to you! Hallelujah!

drawing near

It's just 1 mths and 2 days away from our wedding and I am really counting to the day .. been really busy running around ... giving out invitation cards, buying wedding stuff, meeting up with people, doing up wedding programme, Emcee speech, collecting photos etc etc etc ... so so so busy .... I will be selecting and trying my gowns on 24th Nov ... pretty happy with Dawn's work till now ... the service as well as the whole experience has been pleasant ... be collecting final album on 24th Nov as well ... I am kinda happy I din spend a bomb on the gown on some apparently self-acclaimed "branded bridal studio" because afterall it's just a gown which I probably wont wanna wear it twice ... haha ..

went for class dinner that night .. about 12 of us turned up ... 1.5 years after graduation, went to sakura for buffet .. not that fantastic but good catching up I guess ... think we came to the conclusion that our job aint an easy area to make money and all the rosy talk and pictures are kinda "painted" so bright due to the long hours u have to put in etc etc ... had a fair share of all the FONs we experience everyday. It's tiring ... really ... but some make ur day though ... i had free ferraro rochers chocs that day ... this patient bought it for me after I finished her prostho tx .. kinda glad everything worked out well for her ...

and I had dinner with T & J at anchorpoint too .. forgot to pass her my invite card ... hmm ... we ate at sakuraya ... the Jap food is fantastic esp the sashimi =) good time chatting up and eating hagen daaz ice cream when everywhere is closed wahhaha ...

will blog again ... need to cut a bridge prep now ... =)

More than Blessed

At The Cross

Oh Lord You've searched me
You know my way
Even when I fail You
I know You love me

Your holy presence
Surrounding me
In every season
I know You love me
I know You love me

At the cross I bow my knee
Where Your blood was shed for me
There's no greater Love than this
You have overcome the grave
Your glory fills the highest place
What can separate me now?

You go before me
You shield my way
Your hand upholds me
I know You love me

At the cross I bow my knee
Where Your blood was shed for me
There's no greater Love than this
You have overcome the grave
Your glory fills the highest place
What can separate me now?

You tore the veil
You made a way
When You said that it is done

And when the earth fades,
falls from my eyes
You stand before me
I know You love me
I know You love me

I posted this sometime back and recently this song just kept replaying in my head. Alot of things have happened or perhaps not happened in the way I wanted it to be but I know that God's love for me is eternal.

In times of success I will praise Him and in times of disappointment I will praise Him still, knowing that God is with me all the time and everywhere I am. In my failures I place my trust in Him, my strength is in Him and my hopes are in Him. Even if it feels like the whole world has turned their back on me and nothing seems to be moving, God is here with me in every situation. I am still the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. It's just so so so comforting to know that God is always there for me. Even when my faith is weak, God never fails. Even when I am weak, God strengthens me from within.

Slightly less than 2 mths away from our wedding, invites are on its way of rolling out. We've finished our 1st marriage counselling session with Pastor Joshua and we are really thankful that Pastor Joshua will be our officiating pastor and our counsellor. We had a fun time fun session and also so many fonds moments of preparing for our wedding. I think I will miss the preparations after our wedding ... but one marriage is enough for life =) for there's only room for one.

went to nuh today to visit jh ... she has given birth ... to a cute baby girl. when i was there, everyone was commenting that i will be next.. the pregnancy cycle never stops lol ... haha really we'll take everything that comes on the way. It's a bliss to see their happy family with a cute daughter. Everything just seem so worth it so blessed ... instead of those who work and strive so hard in life attain certain work success but have a family/love life that is almost inexistence.

I had a unexplainable joy imaging myself in her position ... guess I've gotten over some stuff ... just like me seeing Gerald everynight, no matter what troubles I had ... I forgot them all when I laughed with him even when he is naughty or good.. kids are a blessing. Just imagine our maternal or paternal love for our kids, our family love for the people around us can be so immense, how about God's love for us that He gave up His beloved son for our sake ...

 i had a beautiful revealation today, something so needed to soothe my heart and mind ...

Happy

I was pretty upset when our travel agency called up to cancelled our intended honeymoon trip that day due to insufficient group size for departure ... but right now I feel happy because due to its cancellation, I think we are going for a better trip now cos instead of qatar airways, we are going on SQ and we are going to switzerland and france ... think it's the best airline and the best place to be in for honeymoon!

I love switzerland when I went the last time ... we are spending 2 days in france this time round and I think it's enough ... burgundy region with lots of vineyards ... =) no Paris Disneyland  *phew* after going to Anaheim disneyland with Jon in July, we decided the next time we visit disneyland will be to bring our kids there ... lol ... And they allowed us to take the original price offered during the fair and we got more discount than usual ... so like my previous post .. sometimes disappointment seems great intially but well continue to trust in the steadfast love of God that He will give us the very best ...

Right now, I am just enjoying the preparations of the wedding. I think preparing for the wedding is a very enjoyable process though quite mind boggling and tiring. I have no time to think about other issues because I know i will only be through this once ... It also bring us to a higher level because there are alot of things to agree on and to carry out together and also to really see if u are ready for the marriage. I think it takes 2 very secure people to handle all these issues not being very close to each other (in terms of location proximity). Sometimes we need to make decision fast and I thank God Jon is someone with wisdom to make good decisions ... =)

Someone once asked me what I will choose now ... relationship or a career? Well definitely relationship. We went to check on LeReve again yesterday... It is so beautiful ... something we have so imagined for our house even before we decided to get married ... they are trees planting now ... i love greens...  I have thoughts just staying there and be happy (i used to be so eager to start a nice life somewhere have a long getaway but right now nothing can be further than the truth that I know I'll be happy with Jon around, our loved ones and a great church to keep feeding on the word of God. ) Someone also asked me if I wanna go and study again which place i will choose? Seriously God will open doors and close doors ... my prayer is that I wanna be in a place where there's a great church for me to worship and whereever I go, we will be blessed.(besides a good program) Jon's work will be blessed. So we just continue to trust that God will bring us to this place and even if it's back here at home ... I am happy. The idea of a part time working mum sounds fantastic =)

Ok I was supposed to be blogging about our honeymoon ...

So we are going on a 10/9 Day Switzerland and Paris Winter Rendezvous. We'll be departing on 17 Dec nite ... coming back shorting after Christmas!

 In that, we will be heading to lucerne, berne, geneva, Valis Val d' Anniviers, rhone valley, lake geneva region, jungfrau region, interlaken and paris ...

there are some special inclusions in the tour that we will be heading on ... Skiing in the Swiss Alps on Mount Titlis (lessons provided), Glacier wine tasting, Lavey-les-Bain thermal water spa, a swiss fondue dinner and a french dinner ...

I cant wait ... it's gonna be a fantastic honeymoon ... and thanks to my special one!

Having a Good Opinion

Sometimes disappointment seem very great intially but you never know what is on the other end when things don't happen the way you want it to happen. Perhaps the route is a better one to take when things dont happen. I'm over it ... if the doors seem closed, I know for sure a gate is opening instead. At least this is what me and Jon will choose to believe in. Well that's not the end .. it's just the beginning.

I'll continue to put everything in God's grace, knowing for sure that He will carry us through with wings like the eagles and we shall not feel weak and be strong and courageous ... I thank God for His hands are with us that our path will get brighter and brighter ...

Having a good opinion of God is in control ...

-thoughts-

Our wedding is really approaching ... just barely 2 mths and 13 days away. Been rather busy with wedding preps like printing invitation cards, seeing photo album layout, drafting invitation list, looking for white shoes etc etc etc ... something I am so excited about ... went to have a peep at Le Reve that day ... they are still working on the exterior ... really dunno when we can move into it ... hopefully soon ... but we have decided that we might want to reno it nicely and perhaps stay for a while at auntie R's place first ...

went to SPCA that day having intention to see if there are any dogs for adoption ... all the dogs are huge ... saw a nice golden retriever there but oh well too big ... haha ... i like westies ... if we stay in singapore and not move ... we will prob buy one in the near future ... or best to adopt one ...

and the trip to spca really got me thinking about life ... i saw this little gal who came out trottling happily with a hamster that she adopted. The image just triggered off thoughts in my mind. All of a sudden i realise that come Dec ... my life will be quite detached from my parents' already and I will be setting up a family that is our own. Alot of things that I want to do will not just involve me anymore ... and the best example to talk about now is whether to study or not to study further ... But I know deep inside my heart God is in control and He has the best for us ... but I will stay if Jon has to stay because work is just work .. study is just study ... my life revolves around my loved ones ... so if God open the doors for us , we will go. Else we will be even happier here ... a nice cup of hot chocolate in le reve sounds nice ... The thought of being a wife, a future mother sounds rather exciting and fun .. yupz yupz and that's why we are getting married this dec ... lol ...

and like Bien ... i am getting tired of alot of things that people are asking me everytime they see me ... part 1 or not? local or not local? when and etc etc ... I am so sick of answering all these questions ... think about it ... It's my life and yet they are more curious than what I am ... seriously I have no answers for them because I really dunno ok ... it is so super competitive that the best of the best in their own country has difficulty getting a spot .. but I am trusting God for directing my steps. If I am not meant to go, then there is something better out there for me coming along.  So i agree with Bien that secretive might be good... and let the rumors carry on burning by themselves while I continue to be merry in life ... so stop asking if it's to fulfil your curiousity because it is really non of your concern till the time is right for you to know. Being a specialist or not is the determinant whether your are sucessful or happy because you can still be successful and happy anywhere anytime and as anyone ...

so enuff said ... i am looking forward to food tasting tmr at rasa sentosa ... and looking forward to 15th Dec ...

continue to trust that God is in control ... If there's one thing that I need,

Your Presence is all I ever seek ...

appreciation

after all maybe everything is still right till now ... despite the mundane and incessant complains i hear from people talking about their problems and their pain and their incapacities ...

got a super duper nice fruit basket from one of my patients today ... with a thank you card ... had 5 red roses and 7 white roses ... rather pretty actually and alot of fruits ... think he got it from astoria florist ... i took a pic with my hp ... will post another time ... ahhaa but Jon was not pleasantly happy i think ... haha but at least it brought some appreciation for all the work i have done ... oh well but i seriously dun work for all these gifts ... nice but really not necessary ... but he's a nice uncle patient ... so jon dun get jealous ... hahaha ... i dun mind recieving more bouquets at work haha ... though u sent a nice one during my bday this year ... appreciate that much much more =) hugz ...

oh and previously there was this auntie who handmade a box of soon kueh for me ... really homemade from the way it appeared lol ... but tasted good. so despite all the ugliness i see about 80% of my time ... sometimes these 20% does appear ... making u feel that the world can simply be better ...

these signs of gestures just make it look like i am indeed in the rite line and still doing the right things ...

Lord continue to lead me to find the land that You have opened up for me ... all things work out for good ... still waiting ...
