O Happy Day!

I used to think that if I wanted to marvel fields and fields of sunflowers

I had to transport myself to Provence…

but not anymore!

These sunshiny, joyful and glorious flowers are in full bloom everywhere I turn!

Oh what a happy Day!

The greatest day in history
death is beaten
You have rescued me

Sing it out
Jesus is alive

The empty Cross
The empty grave
Life eternal
You have won the day

Shout it out:
Jesus is alive
He’s alive

Oh happy day, happy day
You washed my sin away
Oh happy day, happy day
I’ll never be the same

Forever I am changed

When I stand in that place
Free at last
Meeting face to face
I am Yours
Jesus You are mine

Endless joy
Perfect peace
Earthly pain finally will cease

Celebrate
Jesus is alive
He’s alive

Oh happy day, happy day
You washed my sin away
Oh happy day, happy day
I’ll never be the same

Forever I am changed

Oh what a glorious day
What a glorious way
That You have saved me

Oh what a glorious day
What a glorious Name

Oh happy day, happy day
You washed my sin away

Oh happy day, happy day
I’ll never be the same

Forever I am changed

Olympic Spirit

I like the colors of the Olympic rings.

The 5 colors remind me of the “Wordless” Bible.

“Wordless” Bible is one of the methods used to share the Good News of Jesus Christ.

Yellow represents God is Light.
Black ~ the sins we committed.
Red ~ the blood of Jesus that washes away our sins.
Green ~ growth in the Lord.
Blue ~ Heaven.

I had used the “Fuwa 福娃” — Beijing Olympic Mascots — to share the gospel with children since the 5 mascots were dressed in those 5 colors: Beibei (blue); Jingjing (b&w); Huanhuan (red); Yingying (yellow);Nini (green).   The names of the mascots were derived from the chinese greetings “北京欢迎你 — Beijing Huanying Ni” meaning “Beijing welcomes you!”.

Last weekend was BC Civic holiday and we were praying for BC.

When the BC Flag was shown, the kids were asked if they noticed something similar as seen in London Olympics. Without hesitation, they recognized the “Union Flag” as part of the BC Flag.

If one observes closely, the Union Flag is consisted of 3 crosses that represent the patron saints of England, Ireland and Scotland.

From wiki:

The Cross of Saint Andrew with the Cross of Saint Patrick, over all the Cross of Saint George.

I also like the Olympic motto “Citius, Altius, Fortius”; from Latin meaning “Swifter, Higher, Stronger.”


Once when I was a big fan to this particular outstanding actor, the fan club wanted us to write a word of support to the actor.   Fans were to send a post card from the place that they live in, so that our respected actor would be thrilled to know that he has fans globally.   Because this actor is such a talented, passionate and mesmerizing actor, I chose “Citius, Altius, Fortius” to cheer him on.   Later,  the forum administrative team chose that motto for the actor’s home page!

A friend from England said that the Olympic spirit in England is brilliant.  I didn’t receive any postcard but was thrilled to receive these hearty gifts from her!

See ya Sochi 2014!

Chick-Fil-A

I’d never heard of Chick-fil-A until I had a bite last month.  
Love their sweet tea and waffle potato fries too.

The past weeks, Chick-fil-A has been the talk of the town all over the States.

Here’s the buzz from yesterday  — a day to stand with Chic-fil-A in support of Traditional Marriage.

Here’s Liberal Journalists defending for Chick-fil-A.

An interview with the founder Truett Cathy by Billy Graham Evangelistic Association.

Oh, a buddy was born in the year of rooster and here’s what I got for her.

The other day, I told Carmen I would made sweet tea to drink on Aug 1 but then I decided to try her favorite drink that she had been craving for ;p
