How much you love to...

A dear friend just told me this... In another words, of course. But the message conveyed by her is now filling my heart up to the rim!
Someday, I will stop this keep-my-head-above-the-water act and just swim my way to... you know what.

ps: I cannot even say the word. I am that hopeless!

Immeasurably More

I asked for a little house in the middle of nowhere. Because that was what my understanding can measure, based on what I think I can afford.
He gave me a beautiful home with a backyard... In Bali.

I asked for friends. He keeps giving me families.
I asked for a job that pays the bill. He gave me passion in doing it too. And some extra for me to share.

I asked so that every one of my siblings will finish college no matter how hard the condition is... Not only that He made it done, He also blessed them with jobs just right after graduation.
I prayed for forgiveness... for a break-through after my darkest times... He said "Everything is done."

I asked for a normal life, He showed me that His work is larger than normal, bigger than average, greater than life itself.

For a child of my own, I did ask for that too... And He gave me strength to overcome the suffer of loss and the patience to wait on His timing, because He knows that it will take more than a submissive heart and a parenting blood to raise one.
I begged for a perfect health... He gave me a chance to hold on... to have faith in His miraculous work.

Now... I am asking for something I have never asked before. Something I never thought I need. Something I almost could never believe.
And with a pounding heart, I am telling you, I just cannot wait to see His answer.

Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory. — Ephesians 3:20-21.

Enough said.

Kasabian- LSF

One of the hottest song ever made. In my opinion.
And when it comes to music (just like in any other cases), my opinion is always right.

Have a great weekend sweethearts!

Banana Bread Idolatry

As a 'not a big fruit eater', I have a strange soft spot for... carrot cake and banana bread!
I do not have many friends sharing this particular fetish so imagine my euphoria when I found out that this beautiful little girl is sharing the same palate! Her name is Cilla, and she is the daughter of my good friend -and a neighbor- Ami.

Last week, on a ladies-only-coffee-date, Cilla told me that she believes in fairies and asked me what I believed in. I told her... I believe in Nutella. She laughed!

Here's some photos of me in a making believe scene and with Cilla after wolfing two slices of banana bread with my "secret" recipe: Add a spread of Nutella and Peanut butter on it! Trust me!

Fear no Storm

My storm is health related. Not easy to do. But I am doing it.
So help me God.





What is really in your bag?

Let us do a pop quiz this Sunday!
Emily McDowell, one of my favorite illustrators; is asking us one pressing question every month. My first attempt to join her in her randomness is to answer the above question:

So, I will let you to take a snoop in to my hand bag:
  • You will always find a pair of shades. 
  • Hmm... aspirin and my pink pills. Such a bad popper!
  • A small beauty kit. And I mean small. I am diligent in cleaning them up. I do not bring eye-shadows and or blush in many colors. But I will always have my hot-red lipstick. To make me feel all put up together whenever needed and my Tarte blush in peach.
  • Wet tissues and hair brush.
  • My mobile. One device only. As a not-so-much-of-a-gadget-freak, I can be very faithful to one mobile device. To the last day the machine gave up on me, I will never look for a replacement.
  • My ipod touch. We have been together since 2009 and through a lot of ups and downs... 
  • One book I currently am reading and or a copy of current issue of Reader's Digest.
  • A bottle of EDP or body spray. Depending on what I have in the agenda after work.
  • One notebook and a pen.
  • A pair of extra-just-in-case earrings.
  • One tube of Xylitol.
  • Receipts...

Just Breathe

One of the songs I know I want to be played in my funeral.
I will never get tired of your work, Mr. Vedder.
