Do you know..

What I am believing in? Came across this poem on web. A non-Christian friend blaming his Christian friend for not sharing the good news of the living God... Till the non-Christian friend is facing the final judgement and it is not turning back...

My Friend
by D. J. Higgins

My friend, I stand in judgment now
And feel that you're to blame somehow
While on this earth I walked with you day by day
And never did you point the way
You knew the Lord in truth and glory
But never did you tell the story
My knowledge then was very dim
You could have led me safe to him
Though we lived together here on earth
You never told me of your second birth
And now I stand this day condemned
Because you failed to mention him
You taught me many things, that's true
I called you friend and trusted you
But now I learned, now it's too late
You could have kept me from this fate
We walked by day and talked by night
And yet you showed me not the light
You let me live, love and die
And all the while you knew I'd never live on high
Yes, I called you friend in life
And trusted you in joy and strife
Yet in coming to this end
I see you really weren't my friend

How many of your friends and family know that you are a Christian? Do you love them enough to tell them how to get to heaven?
Jesus said, "If anyone is ashamed of me and my words in this adulterous and sinful generation, the Son of Man will be ashamed of him when he comes in his Father's glory with the holy angels" (Mark 8:38).

Jesus also said, "Likewise every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, and a bad tree cannot bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire" (Matthew 7:17-19).

Tonight, I gonna sleep with this burden with.. I love my family members, I love my friends.. I don't want 1 day both of us regret at the no turning back.

Don't grumble

Last Sunday sermon with topic 'do not grumble 不要诉苦' in the service, has served a great reminder to me. Most of the time, we like to complain this and that then start grumbling on small little stuff even it is a blessing eg boss given us a good project or opportunity to learn and grow but we grumble about the workload; or we grumble about children are too high commitment while not all the people is having heathy and active children like us..

Pastor preached about we shouldn't grumble in this 5 aspects.

1:20 拿俄米对他们说:“不要叫我拿俄米(“拿俄米”就是“甜”的意思),要叫我玛拉(“玛拉”就是“苦”的意思),因为全能者使我受了大苦。
"Don't call me Naomi," she told them. "Call me Mara, because the Almighty has made my life very bitter.
1:21 我满满地出去,耶和华使我空空地回来。耶和华降祸与我,全能者使我受苦。既是这样,你们为何还叫我拿俄米呢?”
I went away full, but the LORD has brought me back empty. Why call me Naomi? The LORD has afflicted me; the Almighty has brought misfortune upon me."

We shall accept the hardship if all are experiencing the same

We know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time.

We shall repent if we have done the wrong thing, rather than complaining about the beating and punishment. But if we get some suffering because of us doing good, then we shall not complain about it, as this is please in God's eyes. The reward would be coming from the highest.

你们若因犯罪受责打,能忍耐,有什么可夸的呢?但你们若因行善受苦,能忍耐,这在 神看是可喜爱的。
But how is it to your credit if you receive a beating for doing wrong and endure it? But if you suffer for doing good and you endure it, this is commendable before God.

去婚礼好过去丧礼,我们会学习更多, 因为我们在欢乐里面,往往得到不多,苦难让我们学习到生命的更深沉。与其埋怨,不如改变自己

Sometime hardship brings benefits. For us complaining on the situation, we shall change ourselves and receive the good deeds from the hardship. Most of the time, we learn in hard situation. Happy moments are means to be only on surface of happening. We do not learn much lesson from the surface of happening.

It was good for me to be afflicted so that I might learn your decrees.


There is always the turning point for our hardship and suffering situation. The outcome is fruitful although we don't see the harvest at the beginning stage. There is value behind all the hardship.

"Fear not that your life shall come to an end, but rather that it shall never have a beginning"
- John Henry Newman

The victorious Christian life is a series of new beginnings
- Alex. white

"Though no one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending"

So she went out and began to glean in the fields behind the harvesters. As it turned out, she found herself working in a field belonging to Boaz, who was from the clan of Elimelech.
Just then Boaz arrived from Bethlehem and greeted the harvesters, "The LORD be with you!" "The LORD bless you!" they called back.


4:12 亲爱的弟兄啊,有火炼的试验临到你们,不要以为奇怪(似乎是遭遇非常的事),倒要欢喜,因为你们是与基督一同受苦,使你们在他荣耀显现的时候,也可以欢喜快乐。
Dear friends, do not be surprised at the painful trial you are suffering, as though something strange were happening to you.
But rejoice that you participate in the sufferings of Christ, so that you may be overjoyed when his glory is revealed.

Now I rejoice in what was suffered for you, and I fill up in my flesh what is still lacking in regard to Christ's afflictions, for the sake of his body, which is the church.

By looking at this 5 points, we have no reason grumbling on our frustration and suffering. When we are less complaining, we shall see the beauty and positive side of things.

As a conclusion, we shall celebrate 2015, counting the blessing of God and do not grumble for all the learning points and suffering that received :)

Jesus is the reason

The Christmas celebration had just over, but the grace and blessed moments are still being counting :) Jesus is the reason for the season and God'd promises are real.

And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night.
An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified.

But the angel said to them, "Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord.

This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger."

Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying,

"Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to men on whom his favor rests."

"For 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.

I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.

Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

Yammer turns One!

During my travel trip to Vietnam, I got this email received..


Of course, I didn't miss this get- together session. Happy to see the great movement and achievement for this communication and collaboration tool progressing in the company. Many hours of meeting and brainstorm session for my division to come out with activities and postings to make this tool more useful and effective use for business purpose.

So, alone I represented my team for this meaningful and fun event

Lately company held lots of get together celebration sessions to cheer big and small success, and to improve employee engagement. I like those deco..

And lots yummy foods presentation

Here came out CEO. Inspiring and friendly sharing from him. Then the award giving ceremony session started in cozy environment. Lots of laughters and applause.

Then, came to my turn to be on the stage!

Ta-dang! Our team got the top yammer group :D the emcee explained about this award - this group updated quality posts and have most engaged members and posting. The Mr CEO smiled at me, and said 'great job!' Then shake hands and snap photo :D feel proud for this moment, a happy news to close the year ^^

Greyhound pound is the group created by me that advised by my boss to have a platform for us to reach out to our members. Education contents presentation for this project progress and best practise update. On and off we do have members post their photos on the their greyhound meeting sessions. Project Greyhound is talking about continuous improvement tool and new way of working. Been involving in this project for year+ together with my team member.

The feeling is like seeing your baby got an award on stage la :p the simple and yet meaningful recognition :)

Today is the day my department moving to new office location. Been in this office building for 9 years. Still remember I first stepped in this office after my 2 month maternity leaves when I was having my twin angels. Time flies..

Let me share with you my new workstation in the new office.

Comes out from the lift, go in the one of the entrance glass doors, then turn to the corner... My proposed seat is at the corner left top

Nah.. Side view

The desk with the ID tag is my proposed seat. Next to me is my team member. Then the round table bar chairs are for discussion.

Why am saying this is my proposed seat? Coz we are practising hot desk concept. No one owns any seat. You can sit at any empty desk. Then you are supposed to clean the deal before you left. Or else, all things to be taken away by admin department. So we keep our thing in the locket provided.

Hehe.. My seat is near to the pantry. This is important :)

Hopefully we have better engagement and collaboration in the new office. Looking forward for a brand new start ^^
