As March draws to a close, I would like to share this article that has taught me a very valuable lesson in life..
What are we then? Are we lions wanting to show to the world everything that we had done in service and act? Are we in love with our life's achievement and give ourselves a pat on the back? Do we want to live our lives as lions or as lambs?
Jesus came down to earth as a lamb, lowly and meek, He was born in a manger not a hotel room, He came down to serve not to be served, He was a man of sorrow, tears and agony. His whole life was centered on giving Himself to the people in need. He had compassion for them. When He was betrayed by Judas, He did not defend himself but remain quiet throughout the trial process and chose to bear the cross with excruciating pain. People at that time sure thought He was a loser, but they were wrong. He died and rose up again on the 3rd day. His work had finished, He had conquered sin and death. He lived His life as a Lamb but indeed He leave as a Lion.

Am dedicating this blog to my friends ( Connie, Choon Sheen, and Laura) who had been with me the past 3 and 1/2 years in Penang.
To Connie - When I first came back to Penang, you welcome me and took me in. You introduced me to the church members and you provided support when I didnt have friends. I came to know alot of people through you, and we became fast friends after that. I enjoyed the times where we go watch movies in the cinema and my house. Also when we go shopping and doing stuff together. Since you have gone back to KL, I lost one shopping/movie/activity partner.. really miss the good ol' times we had.. .really miss the laughter and joy we shared..you are always jovial and happy and we tend to complement each other on that.
To Choon Sheen - You have also been one of the people that I can click with in church. Though, you dont have much time because of your research, yet you take out the time to spend it with me. Really appreciate that. Also perhaps because we could speak mandarin, so we sort of like click..and have a lot of fun times talking about rubbish and also bottomline we do share problems together and listening ear. Thank you for your friendship, and will miss you when you are going away soon .
To Laura - Though I know you the longest since bible camp, I didnt really get to know you that well until we started have bible study. You have always been a source of good counsel and listening ear to all three of us. You are generous with your sharing to us, and really thank you for that. You are also a good shoulder to cry on and a good support system to us and to me also. Thank you.
Friends will come and go, but I take this opportunity to thank all three of you and how you have touched my life without knowing it in your own sweet way. I wish you all three the best. Take care my dear friends..
