The next time you start to be overcome by worry, turn to God and remember that
(1) He is in charge,
(2) He can carry your burdens,
(3) He can take away your fear,
(4) He can sustain you, and
(5) He will never leave you.
Lord help me remember that nothing will happen today that You and I can't handle together.

Today I read the papers that if your emails size in your computer reaches 2GB, you will not be able to open your Outlook as it will hang. Fearing that I might reach that state, i quickly did a check on my mailbox size. Not surprised, my emails size is 600MB and +++
So i spent my evening to do housekeeping in my mailbox.
I run through them and some emails were dated as early as late Year 2003. Some emails brought a smile to my face... and as i read i felt encouraged some of the emails that friends had send me - concerns, thanksgiving, prayers, encouragment, sharing and many much more.
I also saw mails that brought me tears of comfort. Emails that I had wrote to my friends sharing my difficult times at work and studies and how these friends wrote back to me encouraging to go on. Prayers, Bible Verses, Quotes and Stories. Some were so sweet and find jokes to cheer me up.
Emails that say "Fill this up and send me back". It had a list of questions asking my friends how they thought of me. Words like Loud girl, Fun to be with... not very smart leh ... and many funny & ridiculous things about me... and questions like if there a promise for me, what would it be... all my friends replied: Eternal Friendship with you my dear friend
Emails from friends who wrote how much hurt they are going through or how things are not going well for them in their work, life, studies, relationships or ministries. How they asked for understanding and comfort. Some wrote that I had neglected them and often too busy to meet up with them and they felt hurt. Guilt just smashed hard on my face after reading those emails.
Apologies and reconciliation of friendship.
Emails from this fellow, call Teh Eng Chuan... seems like he always emailing people with lots of articles on God's word. How sometimes his emails seem to be irrelevant at that time, but when i look through my mails again, somehow God would use the emails/articles to give me answers on problems in my life
At the end of the housekeeping, i only managed to reduce to 500MB which is erm hmm.. kind of still alot because the above emails are the ones that I can't bear deleting them away.
My heart is very clean now and fills with peace from God. How amazing that God uses emails to spring cleaned my heart as well.
If your mailbox is liked my previous size of 600MB, maybe you can also go through your old emails and you will be surprised how refreshed you will be after spring cleaning your maibox.
Happy Email Housekeeping !

As little children
We would dream of Christmas morn
Of all the gifts and toys
We knew we'd find
But we never realized
A baby born one blessed night
Gave us the greatest gift of our lives
We were the reason
That He gave His life
We were the reason
That He suffered and died
To a world that was lost
He gave all He could give
To show us the reason to live
As the years went by
We learned more about gifts
The giving of ourselves
And what that means
On a dark and cloudy day
A man hung crying in the rain
All because of love, all because of love
We were the reason That He gave His life
We were the reason That He suffered and died
To a world that was lost He gave all He could give
To show us the reason to live
I've finally found the reason for living
It's in giving every part of my heart to Him
In all that I do every word that I say
I'll be giving my all just for Him, for Him
He is my reason to live
How wonderful to have a Father who love us so much irregardless how wretched we are, how naked and how helpless we are before God. How blessed you and I are... This Christmas my prayers that the love of God will touch the lost ones out there ... touching our loves ones who still don't know who Christ is or had abandoned their walk from God. Prayed for these lost ones...cos we all know... how much they need God.
Chirstmas - a day our Christ is born . He came so we may have eternal life, hope and experience His beautiful love. Do you still remember your First Love or have you forsaken your First Love the source of true love that our Christ had showered upon us?
I wish you a Merry Christmas & this christmas may you dwell in God's greatest gift =)

Fried MARS BARS!!!
Yummy :) Fried Mars Bars make PY a happy girl =)
I was watching this show call The Cook's Tour and he was in Scotland discovering new food. Their food don't surprised me. Is their diet which surprise or shock me! Scotland people eat things without any regards to their health! They love fried junk food they will just dip anything into the batter to deep fry it! *Really anything* from fish and chips to pizzas to mars bars.. and the most ridiculous I saw were ... pickled eggs! They wake up in the morning and where do they go? They go to pub and have a drink first. After their first drink, they will head to have their breakfast and what accompany their breakfast? Another beer! These people are crazy! No wonder they have the lowest life expenctancy in the developed world!
Still... I just added fried mars bars into my Happy Food list.
Fried Mars Bars are now available at Far East Shopping Center (beside Ya Kun) and it cost $2.95 with 4 mini bite sizes mars bars and 1 scoop of ice-cream (choosing between vanilla or chocolate) or if you wish to skip the ice-cream, they are quite happy to give you more mars bars =)
*warning: ultra sweet and ultra addictive!

I got 3 projects due this week and I had only completed 30% each in each project. I am going crazy soon.
Dark eyes, lack of sleep and bad tempered, snacking non stop ..
I desperately need a break after this week. God help me remember that nothing will happen today that You and I can't handle together.

As I looked at the youths today, many of them were keen to know what is being a relationship like or maybe even sex. Even when i was in my teenage years, i have my fair share of crushes on cute guys... especially who are into sports... I was once a curious and naive girl who want to know what is being in a relationship like so i enter into a (silly and very silly) relationship with a guy. I am very thankful that nothing happen ... cos during those days back in secondary school.. is common to hear my friends getting pregnant and dump and abortion. Very sad cases and worse ones would be dumping babies at HDB estates ... As i looked back, God had protected me. I am thankful that this thing only lasted a few months and it was not a deep relationship; it was more a hi-bye thing. Why am i sharing this? Because... today i happen to bump into him on the streets, 6 years since i last saw him. Keegan and I was shocked when we see him: Big sized, fats, tattoos on arms, heavy smoking breath...
EWWWWWW! Both of us were stunned and ewwwww ... i barely look at him for 1 sec and i lost my appetite for my dinner. I started to recollect my memories and begin to think what if I had continued in the relationship. What will happen to me?! Sound silly to some of you but i just so freak out by his look!
I am very glad that i made the right decision to place my studies as priority over BGR then during sec school days. It wasn't a sweet romance and in fact a very jerky and nerve-racking one. Cos you don't want your teachers to find out and they will call your parents and inform them!
Now BGR has a new meaning to me... is more than just a boy-girl relationship. It should be Building.Godly.Relationship with Christ is placed in the center of the relationship.
I am hungry now... my appetite had just returned...

Nervous - Extremely High
Light Hearted - Normal
Inhibited - Extremely High
Submissive - Normal
Subjective - Extremely High
Hostile - Somewhere High
Impulsive - Somewhere High
Self discipline- Somewhere low not too low
Pastor reminded me that i need to deepen my spiritual life and walk more closely to God, holding on to God's word. The result of not sharing my burdens (inhibited) and will add more tension to myself results in breakdown. On the other hand he see i can be light hearted as well ...but it could be a surface or a mask to cover myself. He encouraged me to share more and trust in Him. Learning to surrender to God will help me see things in a better light. Perhaps also i see that due to my lousy self discipline i tend to do things at the last min (which is very true) that also caused me to be so nervous and stressed up at the last minute and becoming very hostile and impulsive! =( I really need to lighten up and be more discipline.
Sometime I don't know what wrong with my family members. One moment they can be so supportive and one moment they can be so mean! I find it so hard to share with them my work and my dreams. Because they never seem to understand and when the matters became worse if i never shared they start to become very imaginative and think that what i am doing is a complete waste of time. My studies will commence next year and for no reason my mom kept thinking whether is a good thing to study Part time. She fear that my future is going to doom!!!
It looked liked that I have to get them sit down, cook them a nice meal + coffee and talk to them nicely and get my message across this time.
