a raw collection of words from my heart


today: life

i was reminded how short life is.

on friday evening, we sent a very dear family friend on his last physical journey at mandai cremation centre. he left us to be with the Lord after a year-long struggle against cancer. he and his family have been such a testimony to all of us. trusting, hoping, and putting their faith in the one true God. never ceasing to exhibit that joy and grace that only comes through believing and clinging to God in trials.

i was reminded to treasure those around me.

to stop hating, to start treasuring the things and people in life.
hate is so bitter. it hurts the hater and the hated. learning to stop hate, bitterness, and petty dislikes.

i was reminded to look with expectancy for life eternal.

this world is not my home,
i'm just a-passing through
my treasures are laid up,
somewhere beyond the blue



dear summer // summer 01


dear summer,

please bring some happy surprises, rainbows, sunshine, and lots of blue skies.


p-s: and some chocolate-chip ice-cream too, please, if it isn't too troublesome.

<because school's out, summer's here, 
and that deserves a post>


happy (belated) momma day

dear mom,

happy (belated) mommy's day
on this special day, i just wanna say a big, appreciative THANK YOU.

i know you have to put up with so much of my nonsense.

you have to deal with the little spitfire in me.
you have to bear with me being fussy.
you have to put up with my emotional swings.
you have to tolerate all my unreasonable stuff.

and you amaze me at how much you still love me.
thanks for loving me.

i love you mommy <3

may the Lord who has blessed me with such an awesome mother,
continue to lead and protect you,
and bless you with all good things.

i love you so much.

(your lil' spitfire)
