happy chinese new year

it was definitely something to remember this year, celebrating with gail and brett first at aunty wai's on new year's eve, and then new year dinner in chinatown with some duck, scallops, tofu and crispy noodles. and tomorrow, there's more at chinatown with uncle peter. :) also, had the family thing going with gail and brett with breakfast, sleepover and (random) dinner/food in putney. definitely chinese new year family-ish complete with sardine sleeping, camping in front of tv, lazy days, sleeping after meals, eating off the wok in kitchen, corny jokes and teasing... minus the firecrackers, proper chinese food and ANG POWS!! also definitely miss the folks back home and the dogs and cousins and gambling and cookies and all that.. but it was great being in london with the gail and the brett. it gets better. today was a miracle of sorts with my supervisor.. god's favour is so evident in my life i think i'm continually humbled and blown away by how incredibly good He is.
My running bottom line: God is good; He is God and I am not. :)

If I speak with human eloquence and angelic ecstasy but don't love, I'm nothing but the creaking of a rusty gate. 2If I speak God's Word with power, revealing all his mysteries and making everything plain as day, and if I have faith that says to a mountain, "Jump," and it jumps, but I don't love, I'm nothing. If I give everything I own to the poor and even go to the stake to be burned as a martyr, but I don't love, I've gotten nowhere. So, no matter what I say, what I believe, and what I do, I'm bankrupt without love.

Love never gives up.
Love cares more for others than for self.
Love doesn't want what it doesn't have.
Love doesn't strut,
Doesn't have a swelled head,
Doesn't force itself on others,
Isn't always "me first,"
Doesn't fly off the handle,
Doesn't keep score of the sins of others,
Doesn't revel when others grovel,
Takes pleasure in the flowering of truth,
Puts up with anything,
Trusts God always,
Always looks for the best,
Never looks back,
But keeps going to the end.

Love never dies. Inspired speech will be over some day; praying in tongues will end; understanding will reach its limit. We know only a portion of the truth, and what we say about God is always incomplete. But when the Complete arrives, our incompletes will be canceled.

When I was an infant at my mother's breast, I gurgled and cooed like any infant. When I grew up, I left those infant ways for good.

We don't yet see things clearly. We're squinting in a fog, peering through a mist. But it won't be long before the weather clears and the sun shines bright! We'll see it all then, see it all as clearly as God sees us, knowing him directly just as he knows us!

But for right now, until that completeness, we have three things to do to lead us toward that consummation: Trust steadily in God, hope unswervingly, love extravagantly. And the best of the three is love.

i kinda need to sleep

the days are getting longer.. it's so pretty outside.. i had two hours of sleep coz was working on this essay. i'm taking baby steps in getting back into school again. god's been so good in my life. and it's gonna be a great night later. i need to do laundry, vacuum my room, and wash all my sheets. it's too yucky. arrghhh..
but meanwhile, good nights. and studio 60 is back. :)

pause and reflect

"We know that we all possess knowledge.
Knowledge puffs up, but love builds up.
The man who thinks he knows something does not yet know as he ought to know.
But the man who loves God is known by God."
1 Cor 8: 1-3
