He Knows..

I have a Maker
He formed my heart
Before even time began
My life was in his hands

He knows my name
He knows my every thought
He sees each tear that falls
and He hears me when I call

I have a Father
He calls me His own
He'll never leave me
No matter where I go

When you realize how BIG He is, all our worries & problems become so small.

25"Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes? 26 Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? 27 Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?

28 "And why do you worry about clothes? See how the lilies of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. 29 Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 30 If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? 31 So do not worry, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear?' 32 For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

Matthew 6:25-34

Actual b'day celebration

Oh my, such a belated post! Been meaning to continue my b'day celebration blogging but have been so caught up with everything. Anyway here it is...

This year, it's definitely a bonus - I managed to get an off-day for my b'day! Yay! Best part is, so did 2 of my friends.. thanks to the end-of-financial-year leave clearing.. :)

I was awakened by a call from my dearest sis from overseas, and spoke to her for 2 hours. :) Then, 3 of us (on leave) went for dim sum at Imbi Palace! Yummy!!

We ordered some funky food called 'Dragonbeard' above.. still can't figure out what it is. Some of us are 'not really' on leave with multiple phone calls. Luckily I wasn't roped in.

We then headed off to Chin Ai's place because she just had too many business calls & needed to access her laptop. ;) After chilling for a while, we decided to get a manicure & pedicure! And to top it off, I got a discount coz it's my bday. Yay!

Hehe.. love the flowers!

And to top it off, my family celebrated my b'day with me this year which was awesome. Mum got me a lovely marble cheesecake & we had ribs for dinner at a nearby restaurant.

My favourite pressies.. ;)
