Life’s Short

I’ve so many drafts in my mind that I want to flesh out and publish. But other things seem to take priorities, and writing took a back seat. My recent life lesson from God: Life’s unpredictable. Life’s short. No matter how well man plans, life…

Motherhood in Church

I love my church, but no church is perfect. In a big church, one has to be more proactive getting support, and I’m not. The mother’s group the church connected me to was more like a support group for the servers. They are mothers with…

His Wisdom, His Plan

Was asking God about a decision over baby EX’s kindergarten. It’s a good school, but expensive. Not sure if it’s necessary expense at such age. Good because it’s church based and encourages learning through play. Usually such schools of learning in Singapore come with hefty…

In the Face of Death.

I was screaming in my head. Or was I praying out loud? Everything happened in a blur. I was drowning. No, a pillow was pressed against my face. No, I was merely standing in a shroud of hot steam that filled the shower cubicle. The…

God’s Work or My Work?

Baby EX is going to start half day childcare soon…more free time! Excited for some freedom, hopefully it’s not a fluke hope like when she started playgroup in beginning of the year. Was so looking forward to it, when it turned out to be a…

Treasure the Heavenly Treasures

The moment I was out of the train, I quickened my steps. I was late for church. I climbed up the steep escalators, one after another and zoomed past the people standing still on the left lane. Why weren’t the people in a hurry to…

Do You Have a Scarcity or Abundance Mindset?

Recently I observed something interesting about hubby and me. He had the abundance mindset and me, the scarcity mindset. My shampoo had half left. I had the urge to buy and stock up. My bottle of supplements had a quarter left, enough to last me…

Anointing

“Where does that anointing comes from? It comes from the dark room of anonymity and obscurity and crushing, of doing something I don’t want to do, of being in some situations that I haven’t want to be in, of learning to zip my mouth when…
