Greatest Gift of All

Father's Day has arrived, not being able to be with my father at this moment when everyone is celebrating it, all I can do is to say words of thanks. First, I am really longing to travel home and suprise my dad since my brother left to UK and at this hour, at least I should be at home. Unfortunately, I have really tight schedule and I have deadlines to meet for assignments and rushing in and out for the upcoming campaign so therefore I couldn't make it.
Oh well at least I can express it here and knowing that my dad will be reading this. I see him as someone who can go through hardship without complaining. When I was young, whenever the clock ticks to 6.30p.m. I know my dad will be exhausted from work, from his face I can tell. Of course there are ups and downs in the working life especially when he has to support the family and that is why I can never forget the hardships he have taken to bring me to the level I am today. How can I forget that finger of yours through whose support I stood up and began to walk when I am 1 years old. He provided me the comfort even if he had to toil hard. Still, when I have grown up, he become worried even with my slightest sneeze. Well this shows itself his immense love for me.
Dear Ah Pa,
I have always admired you and respected you for being the most upright person I have known in my life. Really. I know you do not show your love for your daughters so openly but you love us a lot. I know I have hurt you a lot at times and let you down when you expected that I will prove myself. I am really Sorry Ah Pa, but I did what I thought was good for me. I take responsibility of every decision I made. We might not have had a lot of interaction but you have made a maximum impact on the way I think and react. Your principles have been the guiding force in my life. I hope I will follow them all my life. Best part about you as a father has been that you never really taught us anything. You just lived your life and showed us the path of rightful living. You provided us with all the essentials of good life and never made us compromise on anything. Without ever showing how hard it could have been for you to provide such a decent life to all of us.
Thank You for Everything Your youngest daughter.

When The Going Gets Tough

Time really flies and I totally have no time for God. Sometimes when I say this to God, I really feel the slap on my face. Back to the basic, God created 24 hours and all I have to say is no time for God. This place is once I actually share my experience with my Father in heaven, what have drive me away from him. It used to be a place where I will throw all out on how I encounter the wilderness with Him. It has been almost a year I am work driven until I bounce into this verse:
Do not store up for yourselves treasure on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselve treasure in Heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be. Matthew 9:19-21
I felt the whisper saying to me asking me to stop what I am doing now and ponder again my purpose in life.
