Let's try of this works : resurrect blogging ... Happenings of 2016

The last I actually pen anything down here was end 2014 ... now that I am down with chicken pox (yes... chicken pox at my age!!!) I really have nothing to do in the house except to stare and stare at my ceiling .... :) - guess this could be a good time to pen down some of the happenings in 2016 and count my blessings name them one by one

First ---- ta-da ---- an unexpected change ---- cut my hair short!!! 

The Cut .... change is coming...
Think the last I had my hair cut short was like 5yrs ago! When all see my previous photos of short hair...they will remind me that I should never cut my hair short again --- my face look like burger and my hair mushroom! hahahha....

No intentions of cutting my hair short just was on the mode of not knowing what to do with it mode I visited my hairdresser and said am I bored with my hair - maybe you can change the color for me.... and snipped! Think it was at least 6in cut!

That evening - I met a youth who's reaction was : OMG!!! You cut your hair!!! Why???
Two days later I met the same youth again and she with a sincere heart asked me : why did you cut your hair? You look a little weird ...ok ... she was that sincere and honest :)

After living for so long, having survive many bad hair days / cuts ... one really do not know how to answer such a question - especially when it comes from a13yrs kid ...

My take of this experience :
Its hard even for a 13yrs old to take changes - a simple change in hairstyle throws her off beat ....its hard for her to get used to my face in short hair.. I guess she could not remember me in my short hair. But this was a hairstyle I kept during my form 6 days ... so I must have not looked that bad la ... just that she's not used to it...

Deeper truth is .... many of us love new beginning, new things... especially when one hears that God is doing a new thing in our lives or in our family or church or nation. We always think that new things will be good or better things. But the truth of the matter many things when new things come... we struggle in letting go of the old... we struggle in embracing the new no matter how good is new ... and beloved... the new may not be good things in human terms - but if it is of the Lord... I assure you that it will be good for us for the Lord will not keep away good things for His children. 

The things that is happening to our nation - is it for the good ... in the mist of all the bads ... yes... I believe that God is sovereign ... that He reigns from on high ... He sees ... He knows... He allows it .. so that His will will be done and His kingdom will be established here on earth as it is in heaven. For His kingdom to be established here.. the old system... must be done away ...

The Lord says :

 See, I am doing a new thing!
    Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?
I am making a way in the wilderness
    and streams in the wasteland.
Isaiah 43 : 19

 Come Lord Jesus ... come ... come and have Your way in me and in my land ... may Your kingdom come here in me as it is in heaven.. grant me grace to let go of the old and embrace the new .... trusting that You are my good good Father.
