I made this envelope (out of recycled materials well except for the glue) to wish a good friend a meaningful and blessed New year.
To all peeps in cyberspace, I also wish us all an exciting, uber creative, and extremely blessed 2010. Like having a beautiful envelope to keep important documents, May we also make year 2010 a memorable and priceless carrier of our creativity and exciting life!
I sure miss you guys specially to a few whom I have already started to get to know better.

I look forward to a cheerful new year ahead.
lots of love

Tonight the itchy-weeny-painter-wannabe me asked my hubby if he could help me paint “Play”.  Actually this is my third requested piece for him.  The pending jobs are “Joy” painted yellow and fading gray and “New” using a blend of blue, white and again fading gray to paint raindrops kissing the earth.  I went on picturing out to him my concept of play.  So i draw on space like how we first learned drawing in childhood (imagine with me now”,) — I wanted it to be three-framed painting with all black background and one-line-white color traced-circle-moon at the upper right hand corner of each frame.  First frame with a hint of one color, second frame two colors added and the final frame different colors pinching each tone. But he just simply smiled at me and said “suwaji lagi ug drawing unja kat un sa lagi ug shading”.

Aguuuuyyyy :)) how i wish i could skip that part and can simply whisk the magic of colors.

So, i ended up with a short short very short crash course in shading with a great mentor my hubby.

I have not painted my own piece of “Play” yet but guessed for tonight both I and my hubby came up with another piece of play while he was teaching me how to draw circles and zigzag lines, from dark to light shading to the proper way of holding a pen/pencil(which i find very difficult cos my fingers felt too stiff and the pencil kept on slipping off my fingers and when i shade my whole right hand moved weeee…sigh!!!). Nevertheless we got a finished product – Playing with “Play”.

Put the glass down today

toasting1It’s a happy chilly Monday here in Singapore. Mmmm work load has mellowed a bit but almost everyone at work still feel hampered. Thanks to Mandy who was kind enough to share her great finds from the net this morning. This piece makes us rise and our steps secured As for my friend Mandy, she says “Im putting my glass down into Jesus’ hands” Read through and find your share of treasure. —— A professor began his class by holding up a glass with some water in it. he helod it up for all to see and asked the students, “How much do you think this glass weighs/” “I really dont know unless I weigh it,” said the professor, “but, my question is: “What would happen if I held it up like this for a few minutes?” “Nothing”… the students said. “Ok what would happen if I held it up like this for an hour?” the professor asked. “Your arm would begin to ache” said one of the students “Your arm could go numb, you might have severe muscle stress and paralysis and have to go to hospital for sure!” … ventured another student and all the students laughed. “Very good. But during all this, did the weight of the glass change?” asked the professor. “No” was the answer “then what caused the arm ache and the muscles stress?” The students were puzzled “What should I don now to come out of pain?” asked professor again. “Put the glass down!” said one of the students. “Exactly!” said the professor Life’s problems are something like this. Hold it for a few minutes in your head and they seem OK. Think of them for a long time and they begin to ache. Hold it even longer and they begin to paralyze you. You will not be able to do anything. It’s important to think of the challenges or problems in your life, But EVEN MORE IMPORTANT is to “PUT THEM DOWN” at the end of every day before you go to sleep. That way, you aer not stressed, you wake up every day fresh and strong and can handle any issue, any challenge that comes your way! So, when you leave office today, remember to PUT THE GLASS DOWN today and think of the coming weekend.

I met up with Samuel again…
January 18, 2009, 3:56 pm
Filed under: Uncategorized

I first heard about the life of Samuel in my childhood in one of the Sunday school classes that i attended.  Though as a kid then, i was just plainly listening to the story … taking it as told, Samuel’s story is one of those stories that is dearly kept at the back of my mind.  Fast forward, the now- at church today, we had Samuel’s story.

My mind reeled charmingly to 20 plus years ago   in our Sunday classroom.  There we were, our long-haired teacher (gee i forgot her name) and around 20 shabby looking kiddos pinched by interest and wonderment as each each page of Samuel’s story is turned.  Oh how i specially like the illustration of Eli. He was pictured as very fatherly with gray hair and dressed up in “robe” (i always call it robe).   I also best remember Samuel as a little boy with curly hair and a mat tucked in his armpit.

Bible stories story telling time was really pure joy to miss.

So here let me tell the story again… i mean blog it

One night, when Samuel was a boy, he heard a voice calling. He thought it was the old priest Eli, but Eli said, “I didn’t call you; go back and lie down.” Samuel heard the call again, but Eli still said it wasn’t him. When Samuel heard it for the third time, Eli said, “It must be God. Go back and listen.” So Samuel went back, and God spoke.

But Samuel didn’t want to tell Eli what God had said, because God was very unhappy with Eli’s sons. “Do not hide God’s words from me,” said Eli. And so Samuel told Eli, and Eli listened. From then on Samuel always said what God told him to say.

Samuel continued to serve God. All of Israel knew that Samuel was a man they could trust to speak God’s words. Even when they went through hard times, Samuel reminded them of God’s words. People all over Israel respected Samuel. And for a while, Israel lived in peace. Samuel helped them to remember to listen to God.

When Samuel grew old, the people of Israel said they wanted a king. Samuel felt bad and told God of this, and God said, “They aren’t rejecting you, Samuel. They are rejecting Me.” For until then, God had been their king.

———

Tonight, I met up with Samuel again at church with my hubby.

He hasnt changed much.  His story didnt change either.

He is the same Samuel, the “unbeliever”  but endowed with such an open heart. He is the same boy who in his sleep heard a voice calling him by his name.  Nothing really much has changed with Samuel but not for me.

If my childhood perceived Samuel as just one nice kid, tonight I had the chance to know him a little better.  Even perhaps quite up close and really personal because he has effected change in me.  He has spoken much about active listening. He was sleepy but he clearly heard the call.  Thrice he counted.  He has emphasized that although he doesn’t have a clear picture of who God is, he has kept an open heart.  He rose and approached Eli.  Thrice it happened.  Uncluttered, focused and yielding.  Eli, knowing that it was God who called Samuel said to Samuel “I didnt call you.  It must be God.  Go back and listen” and Samuel did and God spoke to him.

And here is more to that, he not only displayed an unusual sensitivity at his age but he became a pointer to God for Eli whose family was in trouble with his two sons.

How could a child and unbeliever become a messenger of God?

Now you kiddo – Samuel never fail to  bless my heart.

Thanks yah for teaching the world that the first step to being blessed is to simply open your heart and expect no no nothing but great things from God.

Have a superbly blessed new week to you all!!!
