Its been long ..

since I had my last update. Hello! 3 months away from blogging and i have no idea how to begin. A lot has happened since May and i had my fair share of travel breaks to HK and KL and before I knew it, term 3 started.

It is almost the end of Week 4 and looking back, i thank God for his providence. Without him, i wonder how i ever did survive it? On the scrapping side, i have been slow but productive. I completed quite a number of things but have been too lazy to upload. So forgive me for the lack of update. I do hope to regain my blogging momenturm.

A couple of weeks ago, i received some bad news. A very good friend of mine's mother was dignosed with stage 3 ovarian cancer. Quite frankly, the signs and symptoms were only detacted within a week and before you know it, the tests was confirmed positive. It struck upon me that life is truly so short. You might have all the riches and blessings in life but you never know when God decides to take them all away.

I spent that night in the hospital, watching tears dropped down from her eyes. Hearing that her dad broke down too, after hearing the news broke my heart. But what touched me the most was her mum's undying faith and relentness not to give in to the disease. She had faith and eyes fixed upon the Lord. She had initial fears but her ultimate fear was in the Lord, for He is the one who is all knowing.

I was reminded of a verse that i love:
"He says, “Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth."
- Psalms 46:10

This verse never fails to encourage me in my difficult times. I used to recite the verse during my A Level days and it always brings about this unexplainable peace within me. So, I did this particular canvas to encourage her during this period. It is nothing fantastic but i hope it encourages her to walk on with peace and faith, for our God provides.

Have a good week ahead.
