After 3 years, I finally found my new beau - Tim.
Very yummy-licious birthday lunch cooked by Nat
And my 28+1 (NOT 281!) birthday cake baked by Ash
Birthdays are milestones of life's journey. We can't help but stop, take stock and figure out what's next. This year's stock count didn't go down too well.
Well, I've been in Ipoh for a little more than a year now... the starting line of a long, daunting task of filling up dad's very big pair of shoes in the business. I have the perfect picture that says it all...
For a city bumpkin with the pulse of rush hour madness running through my veins, living in Ipoh is like slamming the brakes of a Ferrari at 120mph. Whether the car cuts the corner and takes on a new direction OR skids right off the track to a grinding halt - the outcome is solely in the driver's hands.
But... through it all, I still believe that God is faithful and will not give up on me no matter how many times I've given up on Him. Behind my happy mask, a small voice is crying out desperately to regain control and I know He's listening.
The best birthday pressie I got this year is the devotional book - Give Me 40 Days. I'm excited and filled with expectation. I want to rediscover, rekindle and restore my first love for my Redeemer. I want the joy of the Lord that rejoices in every circumstance. I want clarity of purpose that is not about me but about Him. I want to worship my King freely with abandonment and extravagance.
So, how will the season of my twenties end? It starts with day 1 of 40...
