Many thoughts

Candid Mammee feels......

Sheepy Cloud's wedding was one of the best ones I've attended. Both of them looked fabulous.
We had great company at the table although we're now YS653 & Faithful 139, every dish was savoury, service was prompt, atmosphere was fun (we have rowdy bunch behind us), AND the red wine was great!

Their video was entertaining and creative, we had much laughter watching it :-)

And we attempted to do a high-pitch "Yum Seng" suggested by Mel. But couldn't stop laughing when we tried. I laughed so hard I had tears in my eyes. So I guess we should do it at Jo Ho's wedding then huh?

I hope everyone enjoyed last night as much as I do.

Thanks, Sheepy Cloud and Congratulations!

Ben 10 Watch

Candid Mammee------

One day last month, I was watching TV and Isaac was crouching in front of the TV ( near the drawer where we keep his colouring materials), so I thought he was doodling as he often did so.

A while later, I was curious as he was at it for quite a while already. Slowly and quietly, I went behind him and saw that he was using a green pen to draw a "watch" on his left wrist! I asked him what was that and he said, "Mummy, this is my Ben 10 watch!" And he even drew buttons on them!. Then he pretended to press on the watch and he "changed" into Four Arms, Diamond Head etc...

I'm really touched and amazed at how he finds ways to fulfil his desire. Isaac had been talking about this watch for one whole year already. His classmate had it and he requested before. The original costs $49 (has sounds) and fake one costs $10 (no sounds). I decided not to get him one. I told him it's very expensive and we don't have a budget for it. (I didn't want to get him a fake one as his classmates may tease him. His classmate had expensive original toys.)

This incident reminds me to be creative with fulfulling our wants. And yes, even children have to learn about delayed gratification.

p/s: Anyway, I promised him that he will receive one this Christmas yesterday.

Sometimes, my memories are overwritten very fast, sometimes just over a few days things and start to forget, so i think blogging will be great or even jounalling...

Thanks God for the great weather yesterday afternoon, as most of you knows that for the past 2 weeks, it was rainning everyday and yesterday morning it was raining too.

My company is having a team building event at Sentosa yesterday, so if it rains, everything got to be indoor, which i prefer outdoor activities. 2 few days earlier, i started praying for good weather, and God answered my prayer. Late afternoon on friday, clouds were clear and it was a sunny day , which is good for beach activities.

And i really enjoyed the team building, we had some indoor games, eg 10 and 5 cents game (bigger group), more interactive game. Follow by beach game, we are supposed to build a raft(given 5 big rubber air filled , ropes and a pillar), after that sit on the raft and puddle over the other side of the sea. And my team was first to puddle back to shore.

It was a great time and get to know more people, and meet up with the president.

There will be another team-building event coming up in Nov, which i am part of the committee, and i am looking forward for this.. hee hee..

A True Story of the Titanic


Do you still remember movie Titanic? What is the most memorable things that come to your mind?
- the Handsome actor and Beautiful actress!
- great cruise!
- 'You jump, I jump'!

Here is a true story that this movie had missed out.... I am really encourage by this true story, to be a evanglist for God.

Let's share your thoughts after reading this story.

John Harper was born to a pair of solid Christian parents on May 29th, 1872. It was on the last Sunday of March 1886, when he was thirteen years old that he received Jesus as the Lord of his life. He began to preach about four years later at the ripe old age of 17 years old by going down to the streets of his village and pouring out his soul in earnest entreaty for men to be reconciled to God.
As John Harper's life unfolded, one thing was apparent...he was consumed by the word of God. Harper was taken in by Rev. E. A. Carter of Baptist Pioneer Mission in London, England. This set Harper free to devote his whole time of energy to the work so dear to his heart. Soon, John Harper started his own church in September of 1896. (Now known as the Harper Memorial Church.) This church which John Harper had started with just 25 members, had grown to over 500 members when he left 13 years later. During this time he had gotten married, but was shortly thereafter widowed. However brief the marriage, God did bless John Harper with a beautiful little girl named Nana.

Ironically, John Harper almost drowned several times during his life. When he was two and a half years of age, he almost drowned when he fell into a well but was resuscitated by his mother. At the age of Twenty- six, he was swept out to sea by a reverse current and barely survived, and at thirty-two he faced death on a leaking ship in the Mediterranean. Perhaps, God used these experiences to prepare this servant for what he faced next.......
It was the night of April 14, 1912. The RMS Titanic sailed swiftly on the bitterly cold ocean waters heading unknowingly into the pages of history. On board this luxurious ocean liner were many rich and famous people. At the time of the ship's launch, it was the world's largest man-made moveable object. At 11:40 p.m. on that fateful night, an iceberg scraped the ship's starboard side, showering the decks with ice and ripping open six watertight compartments. The sea poured in.

On board the ship that night was John Harper and his much-beloved six-year-old daughter Nana. According to documented reports, as soon as it was apparent that the ship was going to sink, John Harper immediately took his daughter to a lifeboat. It is reasonable to assume that this widowed preacher could have easily gotten on board this boat to safety; however, it never seems to have crossed his mind. He bent down and kissed his precious little girl; looking into her eyes he told her that she would see him again someday. The flares going off in the dark sky above reflected the tears on his face as he turned and headed towards the crowd of desperate humanity on the sinking ocean liner. As the rear of the huge ship began to lurch upwards, it was reported that Harper was seen making his way up the deck yelling "Women, children and unsaved into the lifeboats!" It was only minutes later that the Titanic began to rumble deep within. Most people thought it was an explosion; actually the gargantuan ship was literally breaking in half. At this point, many people jumped off the decks and into the icy, dark waters below. John Harper was one of these people.

That night 1528 people went into the frigid waters. John Harper was seen swimming frantically to people in the water leading them to Jesus before the hypothermia became fatal.

Mr. Harper swam up to one young Man who had climbed up on a piece of debris. Rev. Harper asked him between breaths, "Are you saved?" The young man replied that he was not.

Harper then tried to lead him to Christ only to have the young man who was near shock, reply no. John Harper then took off his life jacket and threw it to the man and said "Here then, you need this more than I do..." and swam away to other people. A few minutes later Harper swam back to the young man and succeeded in leading him to salvation.

Of the 1528 people that went into the water that night, six were rescued by the lifeboats. One of them was this young man on the debris. Four years later, at a survivors meeting, this young man stood up and in tears recounted how that after John Harper had led him to Christ. Mr. Harper had tried to swim back to help other people, yet because of the intense cold, had grown too weak to swim. His last words before going under in the frigid waters were "Believe on the Name of the Lord Jesus and you will be saved."

Does Hollywood remember this man? No. Oh well, no matter.
This servant of God did what he had to do. While other people were trying to buy their way onto the lifeboats and selfishly trying to save their own lives, John Harper gave up his life so that others could be saved.

"Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends." [John 15:13] John Harper was truly the hero of the Titanic!

Away for 2 weeks.....

~ LoLa
hi guys!
Surprised that not many have left their prints on the blog since i left! Was expecting to come back to a super busy blog....what happened? :)

Anyway, Candee Mummy, I'm so encouraged to read your previous blog. Yeah, i still remember the times where you were going through a rough patch and how some r/s were being threatened. As i look back, indeed I have seen how God has saved you, not just giving you salvation, but also how He has changed your life in so many ways. You have never ceased to be an encouragement to me: your enthusiasm, openness and passion to learn more about Him. God honours such a heart.. :)

You know, when i was away for the 2 weeks, I have a very honest confession to make...we were so busy planning where to go, what to do, that I really had no time to really spend time alone with's ironic that when we go for a holiday, we as singaporeans just want to squeeze as much as possible to see within the given time! And sadly, we end up tired and need a holiday back home to recover!!ha!

Anyway, yea...i really felt the 2 weeks away was also a time where I kinda drifted a cell, no service, no TAWG.....and then i EASY it is to just slip away just backslide...

As i am thinking aloud, the word 'accountability' really rings out loud ....often we don't realise, but coming to cell and coming for service regularly does a lot more than just making the cell look good or making the cell leader happy!!! haa :) it keeps all of us accountable in our walk....Hearing how God has been real in each other's lives as we come together to share, as we pray we set aside time to worship God as a corporate body, as we hear the Holy Spirit speaking straight to our hearts through a sermon....all these are more than just actions and duties, they are really intentional moments we spend with God's people, in God's presence....and I really want to encourage all of us...let's not give ourselves reasons to disappear from God's people....even visiting this Blog, reading about God, listening worship songs about God, blogging about God...just these few minutes here have uplifted my spirit.....thanks guys for making this blog a place of rest for me...a refuge from the busy world that we live in....

i was listening to the beautiful ministering music on the blog. As i heard the song ' You are my all in all' (Track 6), it just brought me back to my Christian walk many years ago....don't know how to express, but sometimes, there are certain songs that just have a place in your heart and represent a particular period of your life....not sure if you guys have that :)

This song has always been one of my old time favourites....and thought i'd share the lyrics's a beautiful song that I would never want to forget...a song that speaks of our smallness in the midst of a great almighty God!

You are my strength when I am weak
You are the treasure that I seek
You are my all in all
Seeking You as a precious jewel
Lord to give up I’d be a fool
You are my all in all

Jesus Lamb of God
Worthy is Your name
Jesus Lamb of God
Worthy is Your name

Taking my sin, my cross, my shame
Rising again I bless Your name
You are my all in all
When I fall down You pick me up
When I am dry You fill my cup
You are my all in all

Cell Gel

Candid Mammee--..---..---

During the recent Gel, Martin asked us to share 3 things we like about cell and the reasons....

I was reminded of those times when you guys were there for me when I needed help and support. So I wanted to "extend" my list from my three. (First 3 was Birthday cakes!, Worships and Sharing of TAWG).

I want to write them down lest I forget...
-in year 2004(i think), my dad was admitted to SGH for coughing blood. I held on to a plastic box of his blood on the way to hospital (he had been coughing whole day and had collected it for the doc to see). Tuberculosis caused an infection. The bleeding couldn't stop. I was alone and very scared in the hospital, my sis was held up in a meeting. Suddenly I thought of Sandie and smsed her. She smsed a prayer back to me and I felt much better. At first the docs had problems locating the bleeding, but they finally managed to stop the bleeding by middle of the night.
-Dec 2005, I accepted Christ because of Sandie's relentless belief in me. She pursued and asked me to one of the services preached by Pastor Gerald.
-in year 2006, Laura and Sandie were there for me when I was facing personal challenges. They took time to see me, smsed me and encouraged me by buying books for me and bringing me to counseling sessions. The issues were resolved and today I enjoy a much improved relationship with my family.
Also, my Buddy at work discovered cyst in her womb. We prayed for her in cell. The cyst is no longer there the last I checked with her.
-in 2007, I was pregnant and was feeling very lethargic. I didn't attend cell or service regularly. You guys took time to call me so that I stay in the loop and kept encouraging me to return to cell. Some of you even took time to celebrate my birthday with me.

I have never attended other cells to compare. But I felt really comfortable when I first visited Y653.
I'm sure we'll multiply fast if we keep this Vibrant Atmosphere for all visitors.

Cheers x many
