Happy Easter

The Lord was crucified, and on the third day He rose again.
The Lord has risen and He will come again. 
Happy Easter everyone :)

I was standing under the exit barrier unknowingly today.

Suddenly the parking uncle shouted, "WATCH OUT!!!"

My first reflex was to quickly duck, squatting down just in time as the barrier was closing down.


The parking uncle: "Wah, yao gam fai geh (cantonese)" (Translation: Wah, such agile reflex)

Thinking to self: Life shorter by 10 years (-_-" )


There are things in life that we are just in time to respond. But there are things in life that we live with regrets. How many people can be saved? How many people can walk through the heaven's door? How much have I put effort in spreading the gospel? By knowing God, it transforms your lives. It brings peace, joy, hope and prompts you to be on a mission to spread the love to everyone. 

Jesus saved us from our sin when He, who are holy and blameless, was crucified on the cross. He brings salvation to us. He gives us hope.

Have you believed in Him already?

What if....

One day you disappear? 

I believe that is the question that we start asking ourselves lately. The incident of MH370 serves as an awakening call to some who live life for granted or some who take people for granted. 

We always plan for the future, but do we really know what will happen to us tomorrow? Or do we know what is going to happen the next minute? Only God knows. That is why people always say, live your life as if there is no tomorrow. But it's easier said than done. 

I start to think more about people I love, people I care. I wonder if I have done enough. I should really spend more time with my family, care more for those that I love, fly back more often. The more I think, the more homesick I get. Gahhhhh! >< 

Back to the question. If I were to disappear, I would want you to think about me once every year. I would want you to know that I am in heaven with my Lord. I would want my parents to own everything I have. I would want you to know that I am glad to have known you personally. I would want you to hold a party to commemorate me. Dress code would be white. I would want you to transfer your love for me to someone else that deserves it. I would want you to cherish your life and be happy.That's probably what I would want you to do.

For the case of MH370, I pray that we will be able to know the truth soon. My heart go out to the passengers of MH370 and all the people who loved them. May God be with them, fight for them, calm their hearts and draw strength to them wherever they are.

Office Bully

I can plan whatever I want, 
but in the end, 
God still leads me to where He wants me to be...


Have you ever faced one before?

I really don't like the feeling of being cornered and squeezed dry for information. I used to take pride in handling such situation before. No longer so. I despise myself for being so useless.

Integrity, honesty, a lot of times, this has to be preached and practiced by the leader. If not, it's just going to be chaotic at the lower hierarchy. Lack of clarity, lack of communication, lack of teamwork. Battle of conspiracy drives me nuts. I am no good for this game.

The after effect of being in a stress shock state - the constant feeling of being tensed. It sticks to me and I can never shake it off.

Pastor said to look beyond what you do. I am trying hard to collect my productivity. I don't make sense anymore.

Bad feelings, negative vibes, please be nice and go away!

CPR to save life

Let us gather all the positive energy and pray for fresh air, and the safety of all the passengers on MH370.


Representative of Institute Jantung Negara came to our church to demonstrate how to do CPR. 

"Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is an emergency procedure for manually preserving brain function until further measures to restore spontaneous blood circulation and breathing in a person who is in cardiac arrest." - Wikipedia, 2014. 

It is crucial to perform CPR immediately if the person suffers from cardiac arrest or is unconscious. If CPR is not done within 4 minutes, the survival of the person will drop considerably as blood circulation cease transferring to the person's brain. 



CPR involves chest compressions at least 5 cm (2 in) deep and at a rate of at least 100 per minute to pump blood through the heart and thus the body. There are two versions of free phone apps that can be downloaded: PocketCPR. The apps will able to assist you in performing quality CPR. I have downloaded it, just in case :)

Patience

Thinking to self: It wasn't anger. It was disappointment. Do you understand? 




I totally lack of it. When stress cuddles up, I tend to get agitated and restless easily. 

He said:
I asked you to trust me right?
Don't run away from challenge, Sharon.
Don't let it show when you're stressed up. Be calm and composed.

I guess I've a long way to learn. The fugitive cell of mine is bubbling. I hope I can keep my mouth shut at times. Am I making the right choice? He once said whichever you choose, He will guide me back to the right path. That's pretty reassuring...
