You will be missed !!

It has been a hard and tough week for my husband family. Last week January 19, My husband and I were taking my father in law to ER and found out that he had mercer infection, combine with his Alzheimer's and lack of nutrition. They kept him in ER for about 3 hours and moved him to ICU. The next Monday we found out from the doctor that my father in law wont make it because his body starting to shutting down. They suggest to my husband family to have a meeting and make decicions either keep my father in law with life support or just let him go with the LORD naturally.

Wednesday, is the hardest day for my husband and all the families. They made decision to let my father in law be comfortable as much as possible. It is really hard for all of us to see him like that. Through all of this God teach us something, we all getting closer to HIM and knowing that he is in charge in every situation. Give all of us time to realize that he is no longer will be with us that way we all have peace to him go.

One thing for sure, we all know where my father-in-love go, he will spend eternity with his Savior Jesus. There is no more sorrow and pain over there ( Revelation 21 : 4 ) "And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away "

As for now, he is still in a hospice care, just a matter of time he will enter his eternal house and celebrate it with Jesus !!!

Christmas  is over and I already took out and boxed away all the decorations. I noticed this boxwood wreath still in a good conditionall the leaves are still green, so I decided just use it as a Valentine Wreath so I just twist it into a heart shape.

Christmas just passed, some of us recieved gift from  friends, families or even from our boss. My husband and I don't unwrapping gift on Christmas morning and surprise each other. You will see some gift under the Christmas tree, those are for some friends or families of ours.

Our Christmas gift to each other is, we go shopping set a budget and buy something that we like and ask each other opinion about it. When we like it then we bought it, I know we are weird or different in my language. Those probably will change when we have kids.

Speaking of gift, we are anxious to unwrap those gift. Some of us happy when we see what inside that wrapping paper or some of us just doesn't care because not something we like or expecting.

Regardless, either we like the gift or not. Have we ever go back to the person who gave those gift to thank them for the effort they make, or at least they have been thinking about us.

My husband and I receipt this really thoughtful gift from an eldery woman in our church. The gift is very simple yet so touching and really sweet. Gift is not always about the price or something that we want, but the thoughtfull behind the gift sometime is priceless.

As I think about this and ponder in my heart, I feel quilty because sometime I do forget to say thank you to the people who been a blessing to me. Either that blessings in a gift, material, or moral support.

Have you say thank you to someone that bless your life??

Most of all I want to say thank God that He gave us His only son Jesus to saved my soul which I dont deserves at all.

Orchid vs Hope

Happy New Year everyone...Hope your 2013 full of bless and exciting things ahead !! I have no resolutin and never had one :) I just want to achieve some goals in 2013 hopefully I can reach that goals:
1. Read the whole bible
2. Read a couple of books

Back to my title, back in May 2012 my lovely husband bought 2 pots orchids for my birthday. He is so nice and thoughtful on every special occasion in our life. One of them, buy me a beautiful flowers, as you my frugality ticking and tell him I love flowers but please just get something from grocery store flower cheaper and yet beautiful.

So, here he went bought me a beautiful orchids one of my favorit flower since I came from tropical island. They are so beautiful.

Here they are back in May
After about more than a month with its glory of blooming the flower fallen and I kept the stem. My husband thought that is about it and through away. I said, " I will keep it and water them and see if they will bloom again" which  I know they will if you take good care of them.
The last time I saw the flowers was back in late June. Since then I water them with ice cube every week. Sometime I dont have patience and kept asking when they will bloom again.
One thing that I learn from my orchid and God's remind me is HOPE...I just do what I suppose to do watering, make sure have expose to the sun and keep waiting and belief one day will produce flowers that Im hoping.
According to wikipedia here  Hope is the emotional state which promotes the belief in a positive outcome related to events and circumstances in one's life. Despair is the opposite of hope.[1] Hope is the "feeling that what is wanted can be had or that events will turn out for the best" or the act of "look[ing] forward to something with desire and reasonable confidence" or "feel[ing] that something desired may happen".[2] Other definitions are "to cherish a desire with anticipation"; "to desire with expectation of obtainment"; or "to expect with confidence". In the English language the word can be used as either a noun or a verb, although hope as a concept has a similar meaning in either use.
Finally, after almost about  6 months I saw a bloom come out from the stem and I am so happy. My hope for the orchid to bloom finally become reality :)
Here they are now my beautiful orchid blooming and  say hi to me every morning !
