Refreshing

To my beloved friends and family:

There is only three more days until my christmas holidays are over and I am back to school with the first two weeks having exams. This holiday has been good to me. Busy and Relaxed at the same time. The last couple of days as  you know already, I’ve been lazing around and enjoying my time off before school starts up again.

Before I forget, the last two posts were of absolute brilliance. I give credit to my alter ego who drew many peoples attention with the story of getting hit by a brick and spending time on my lovely wordpress. I spent some time on Jon’s wordpress as well. I am quite proud of it I must say, Hynah!

Happy Adoption Day my oh-so-good friend (and perhaps more than that) Corrie. Fourteen years and counting, should feel a warmfuzzy feeling. The Lord has provided and molded a great person. Your love and desire to serve God continue to amaze me. Keep being who you are and seeking God for He is doing great things through you.

This holiday, new years, I have sent a couple of emails and facebook messages wishing new years greetings. I have gotten a few emails and greetingsback and it is amazing to hear from them. Some might be friends I just saw in the last month, some I haven’t seen or talked to in a few years. In their emails, they show their heart for God and their desire to grow and how they are living a God-fulfilled life and this is what refreshes my mind every morning, whether it’s reading a unread mail, or re-reading an email sent a few days back.

After many delays, I finally found the time to meet up with an old friend back in second grade. We use to do everything together, we were best friends. Every since I’ve moved to HKIS, we’ve both been busy and haven’t found the time to keep in touch as often as we wish. When I called her a couple of weeks ago, she was in shock to recieve a call from me after so many years. It was nice to catch up through a dinner and let each other know what’s been going on in our lives.

Sometimes, many times, we need to take time out and sit down, have a drink or coffee with old buddies, or friends at the moment and just catch up. Take a deep breath. Don’t forget to take care of your golf balls first. The things that really matter in your life, God, Family, Friends. When you do, the rest is  just sand. Don’t get too caught up with the small things that you’re doing. But even though sand will fill up the rest of the jar, there’s always room for a cup of coffee with friends!

So watch your step. Use your head. Make the most of every chance you get. These are desperate times! Don’t live carelesly, unthinkingly. Make sure you understand what the Master wants. Ephesians 5:15-17 – The Message

Cheers, Jo!
