I´m happy again.... =)

Wanted to blog about this a long while ago, but have been so caught up with the last-minute Christmas shopping and all that I simply didn´t have the time to. Anyways a short post for now. Firstly, I´m not sad anymore! I was - I admit pretty down last Saturday, hence my last post. But I decided that Stephan has so many more birthdays to make up to me - hahah, our entire lives for that matter that I started to "kan4 kai1" - broaden my view of the entire situation. And of course, God had to heal my heart too.

I sorta started realizing what it must have been for Jesus to come down to earth and leave the rest of the Trinity (Holy Spirit and God) behind - in Heaven I mean. Christmas is all about the birth of Jesus on earth, which is a happy thing for all Mankind but I can imagine it could have been a sad thing for Jesus to leave the comforts of Heaven and God´s palace to come to this "trash" place called Earth - as my Mom used to say it. And someone also said, Can u imagine how beautiful Heaven will look? God took 6 days to create Earth whereas He´s taking as long as it takes to create Heaven.

I mean, Singapore is no "heaven" but I really felt so sad that I couldn´t celebrate my birthday with the rest of the "Trinity" - Andrea and Jen... we have this little name calling of each other after Huan Yang said that we 3 stuck together like glue..... Except that I wasn´t given the name of "Jesus", but I was supposed to "Holy Spirit" and Andrea was supposed to "Jesus" and Jen "God" ahhaha.... Anyways, enough crap - that´s if you still understand what I´m talking about. No blasphemy intended though.

Oh and another surprise. One of my youth members, this ultra sweet and super observant guy called Felix - baked me a birthday cake! We had a Christmas gathering at my place on Tuesday and I was so surprised to see a Snowman cake with candles for the age of 24 on it! Its the first time anybody has ever baked a cake for me! My birthday cakes are always bought. And boy, was it so meaningful to me or what? Plus, the entire youth cell wrote cards for Stephan and I - cos Felix once again read my blog and realized that I miss Singapore and the many cards that I normally write and receive. And we even got a present from the youth cell, a special candle that splits open beautifully when burnt. Thanks so much dear Felix!
Before ==> After
I don´t consider myself an attention-seeking person, but I honestly felt that my love tank was filled to overflowing on Tuesday. It was simply so touching and heart-warming to know that there´s some people in Germany who celebrated my birthday with me - as kiddo as that might sound. And I really felt that the whole birthday-cum-Christmas celebration was from GOD! Only God would know exactly what I need and I´m so thankful He used the Youth Cell to speak my love language. Amen!

Yup yup - we had another Christmas celebration with the Adult cell on Wednesday too where I brought potato wedges cos I was too tired from the previous day´s celebration to cook much. I made tempura prawns for the youth cell. Today, we had yet another Christmas celebration in my Integration course! Robinson and I had the idea of having a little celebration with the class about Christmas.

To cut a long story short, at first we organized a Christmas dinner - But it didn´t work out cos the response was bad and a lot of people were from Turkey, hence they didn´t want to participate in a "Christmas" celebration. Then, my smart teacher printed an article about how different races of people in Germany celebrated Christmas and she suggested having a little celebration in class. SO, we collected €2 from each person and as usual, I was assigned the job to get the food. Stephan kindly agreed to do the buying, since I was busy yesterday and Steffi drove me down to school so that I didn´t have to lug the stuff in the train. God is so amazing - just providing the people to help me. =)

I´m really thankful that I decided to stay in Germany for Christmas. Was so confused at first, but after praying about it, I felt more peace about staying in Germany rather than making a last-minute decision to go back to Singapore. We should go back to visit Singapore in Aug 2007 if everything goes to plan - that would be 1 yr since we´re in Germany.

Hi Anonymous

Can you reveal your identity? I find it weird to have people reading in on my blog and commenting on my life - people whom I don´t even know who they are. I´m open about making more online contacts, but its only fair that you tell me who you are as well. Thanks.
