Firework Pageants

dscn6391

Fireworks display is appealing and can often be seen on special occasions such as the Olympics, National holidays and the New Year countdown.

During the Lunar New Year celebration, one of the highlights for this festive season is definitely the dazzling fireworks display.

In my hometown, this is how people usually celebrated after a big feast on New Year’s Eve at 12 midnight — showing off the fireworks splendor.

Many households excitedly and simultaneously light up the town with firecrackers and fireworks.

Neighbors tend to compete with each other to see whose firework is more splendid.

It’s thrill to be in the midst of the pageant and to watch the glowing and sparkly lights flying everywhere!

And here’s an amazing aerial view of the firework displays from the past weekend CNY celebration:

Merry and Bright

Medellin is famous for its Festival of Lights display during the Christmas holidays.

We had a merry night out enjoying the bright lights that illuminated the city streets and parks.

The colourful lights that adorned the whole city of Medellin reminded me of that One Holy Night —

the glorious beams from the heavenly hosts that shone on the shepherds in the field (Luke 2)
and the special bright star of Bethlehem that the wise men followed (Matthew 2)

— they all point towards the Great Light — Jesus — who is the Light of the world.

Jesus replies: “I am the light of the world.
Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness,
but will have the light of life.” John 8:12

Double Rainbow

DSCN1757

Just now as I looked out through the window, I saw a bright and golden twilight.
I hurried out the door so I could get a better glance at this autumn sunset.

DSCN1762

To my delight, I witnessed not only one gorgeous brilliant evening light but a splash of colorful glow that graced the sky.

DSCN1773

I waited in anticipation to see the radiance rainbow slowly blazing its way from one side of the horizon to the other.

DSCN1768

I am thrilled that on this double ten (Oct 10), the sky beamed the earth with such fresh, vivid and splendid display of not only one, but a “double rainbow”.

DSCN1777

And somewhere over the rainbow, I was brought to mind a poem that my friend Lynne penned once upon a time titled “The Rainbow Connection”

DSCN1783

“Behold the rainbow that graces the dark skies after the rain!
It proclaims to me that peace and beauty can emerge
out of the ashes of strife and pain.
I watch the garden roses as they gaze at
the miracle that God has etched upon the canvas called sky.
With a watery smile, I cling close to my heart
the eternal promises of God, and bade the tears good-bye.
God always has a special way of speaking to me
through the “rainbow connection”
He embraces me with His love and comfort,
and provides me with clear direction,
The rainbow spells of His promises – eternal and true,
And of His great faithfulness, every morning new.

A distant thunder rumbled but I am not afraid,
The dreariness of life’s problems begins to fade.
As I contemplate upon the majesty and power of the Creator God,
And look at the magnificent colors of the rainbow,
and the simple garden sod,
I know it is God who causes all these to be,
I thank God for His tremendous love for me.
I thank Him for setting me free ~
Free from the bondage of iniquity,
Amazing love is His decree!

My lips begin to utter words of adoration and praise
I lift my hands in thanksgiving for His abundant grace.
He has given me all that I need – what more should I ask,
Save ‘neath the sunshine of His love I bask.

The colours of the rainbow are beginning to fade away
The clouds are breaking and giving way
To clear blue skies as the sun pierced the gray
My heart sings the tune of
“God will make a way, when there is no other way.”

Glorious Day

IMAG0745

Waking up on this brand new day to welcome the first dawn of 2015;
As I look up to enjoy the morning sky with the sun quietly rising in the east,
I suddenly notice a huge pearly white cloud formation, resembling a shimmering crown, appears majestically against the pale blue sky.

IMAG0749

I am awestruck by the stunning image of the cloud-formation-crown which immediately points my heart towards Jesus, the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords.

IMAG0732

What a glorious day to be mindful of who Jesus was, is and is to come.

Star Songs

9th day of CHRISTmas

IMG_6429

Twinkle twinkle little star;

How I wonder what you are?

Up above the world so high;

Like a diamond in the sky!

Twinkle twinkle little star;

How I wonder what you are?

IMG_6430

Star of wonder, Star of night;

Star with royal beauty bright

Westward leading, still proceeding;

Guide us to thy Perfect Light!

???????????????????????????????

How fun it is to paint the stars,

munching the sweet and the colorful;

And wonder if the songs on the lambent star could be…

???????????????????????????????

Jesus, our Bright and Morning Star! (Revelation 22:16)
