Hope Faith Love

Amazing love from our heavenly daddy cannot be compared to anyone else at all, not even your spouse.

However I love it when both Alex an myself draw near to God in prayer and worship. Its because that through our experience with Jesus then will we be able to find greater intimacy with each other.

God is amusing. He knows exactly when we start to place much hope and faith in ourselves and will put us in situations to remind us that we need to rely on His power and strength, not on our own. He is not a tyrant btw. He is just trying to teach us to mature in our own beautiful ways.

The past few months have been a real journey for me. The journey that reminds me that my wisdom is no wisdom at all, my experiences are minus compared to the significance of the creator of the earth.

The Lord is gracious and merciful. He will not take me beyond what I cannot bear. He knows exactly where is my breaking point and have decided to pull back from that collapsible.

Above all, hope in the Lord, which will be accompanied by faith in Him. And He who loves me will keep me. He who loves me will always reward me with the best life plan ever.

I will trust in you Lord, by your grace, keep me trusting in You. Amen!

In Memory of A Dear Friend, Li Hongyang (1983-2012)

Yup, this pic was taken in 2008, during my last days in FP. The colleagues surrounding me were my HR colleagues. But I am not going to talk about anyone else today, but one person. That is him, Hongyang. (The guy on the extreme left...)

I could almost remember the time when he joined us at HQ as a HR colleague. He is someone that you won't take note of as he has a very quiet and shy personality. But not until you know him, then you will realise that his gentle and genuine care for people is truly a magnet that attracts people to him.

I remember those times when we had lunches at the canteen, and bus trips from Tagore to AMK central. We would almost talked about our plans to further our studies, our work, our struggles at work, our personal lives etc. He leads a very simple life. Most of the time, it is either he will stay at home with his parents, read his favorite books or he would play badminton with his favorite gang of people. He is someone that you can count for help and never will he reject you nor show frowns on his face even when he is so busy at work.

Today, those who had known him as a colleague, no longer remain as colleagues, but friends. We knew that this chance had only lasted for a few short years but it is ok. Because we had the chance to cross our paths with each other.

Although he left early and had only 28+ years on this earth, he had left many many footprints in many hearts.

Hong Yang, I will always remember you in my heart.
