Merry Christmas!

It used to hold no meaning for me.
Everything changed from the moment I believe.
That's the power of the cross, and of course, our dear Lord, Jesus Christ! :)
Some people celebrate Christmas for the fun of it, without knowing the significance of it.
I was one of the lost sheep but here I am, finally appreciating the true meaning of Christmas!
It's all about commemorating the significant historical birth of baby Jesus, 
the Word made into flesh.
The atmosphere in church today was undeniably surreal.
I saw DG mates who were extremely excited to see us (I felt a tinge of guilt after skipping Sunday services and DG sessions the whole year round) without any sense of animosity.
Seriously, I'd love to spend more time with them if not for the eventful addition of Fondrey.
I saw one of my DG mate's mum, who was a non-believer, right beside us singing carol after carol.
I saw mothers holding their daughters and fathers holding their sons dancing to the beat of, the upbeat, Christmas songs.
I saw my hand slipping into the boyfriend's, pressing hard into it, only to whisper that I'll want to attend church regularly again, and let no excuse of fatigue and hectic schedule stop me from doing so.
I saw myself shedding tears of joy as I sang the song of  'Mary did you know?'.
Forget the turkeys, the blinding display of lights along the streets and crazy Christmas shopping.
Christmas is nothing but the wonderful reminder that we get to love one another because 
our unfailing God first loves us.

"Mary Did You Know"

[Originally written by Mark Lowry and Buddy Greene]

Mary, did you know
that your Baby Boy would one day walk on water?
Mary, did you know
that your Baby Boy would save our sons and daughters?
Did you know
that your Baby Boy has come to make you new?
This Child that you delivered will soon deliver you.

Mary, did you know
that your Baby Boy will give sight to a blind man?
Mary, did you know
that your Baby Boy will calm the storm with His hand?
Did you know
that your Baby Boy has walked where angels trod?
When you kiss your little Baby you kissed the face of God?

Mary did you know.. Ooo Ooo Ooo

The blind will see.
The deaf will hear.
The dead will live again.
The lame will leap.
The dumb will speak
The praises of The Lamb.

Mary, did you know
that your Baby Boy is Lord of all creation?
Mary, did you know
that your Baby Boy would one day rule the nations?
Did you know
that your Baby Boy is heaven's perfect Lamb?
The sleeping Child you're holding is the Great, I Am.

Have yourself a Merry Little Christmas! :)

Will definitely be back with more posts (hopefully scrapping related)!
Good luck to those applying for Websters pages Design team!
Sadly I'm not going to give it a shot due to heavy commitments with my work and Fondrey. :(
Nonetheless, I'm still excited for the reveal of the team!

Be blessed this festive season!!

I'm back!!

Seems like I've been gone for more than a week?
I was actually back last Sunday but couldn't beat laziness to get down to blog or even clear emails.
I'm soooooo in love with TOKYO!! 
Just couldn't bear to leave and return to reality.
My laptop was confiscated at the airport before my departure by my parents (no one said a word in defence for me. :( arrgh) and so I jetted off to Tokyo an angry girl.
Later I realised how wonderful it was to spend my days without Internet, just basking in the yummy Japanese food and shopping everyday!
Life couldn't be better than that!
Will be back with more photos with some deliberations written every night before I zonked off in Tokyo! :)
Looking forward to the weekends to catch up on some festive shopping!
I hope you are too!
God bless!!
