The Hindu god of Time at Prambanan
We just have the coldest day in 60 years!
There was snow cum rain in the Tai Mo Shan (mountain) which fell to -5 degrees last night.
There were reports of the same elsewhere; frost was reported on the lower grounds.
I can only blame global warming which has brought us extreme weather throughout the world.
Snow was never heard of in Hong Kong.
However, I know I have to be optimistic.
The view of sun rise has always brought me hope and even faith in God. This picture was taken in Langkawi, Malaysia.
Let’s be Optimistic and hope that everything will be back to normal in a few days’ time.
I have been reading this poem over and over . . . . . .
Footprints Also Known As “I Had a Dream”
One night I dreamed a dream. I was walking along the beach with my Lord. Across the dark sky flashed scenes from my life. For each scene, I noticed two sets of footprints in the sand, one belonging to me and one to my Lord.
When the last scene of my life shot before me I looked back at the footprints in the sand. There was only one set of footprints. I realized that this was at the lowest and saddest times of my life. This always bothered me and I questioned the Lord about my dilemma.
“Lord, You told me when I decided to follow You, You would walk and talk with me all the way. But I’m aware that during the most troublesome times of my life there is only one set of footprints. I just don’t understand why, when I need You most, You leave me.”
He whispered, “My precious child, I love you and will never leave you, never, ever, during your trials and testings. When you saw only one set of footprints, It was then that I carried you.”
Margaret Fishback Powers, 1964
The picture was taken by my wife while travelling in a desert in Utah, maybe, it would be more appropriate if the picture was taken on a beach.
I rarely talked about my family in my blog.
But on 11th Thursday my mom will be operated to have her malignant tumor in her colon removed.
To have a surgery at her old age is not very common and the complications it may attract are just worrying.
Here, I hope my mom’s operation will be a successful one and that the good Lord will have mercy on her guiding her to recovery.
I hope she is just like the green bamboo in this photo, evergreen and have a lot of will to survive.
She has sacrificed and so much for us when we were young. May the good Lord bless her and listen to our prayers.
