Hi 2011

A friend of mine delivered a baby after Christmas, and on the first day on 2011, the baby passed away due to heart failure. When I received the sms, I didn't know what to say or how I should feel.

I'm a mother now. I can feel the pain for my friend. I couldn't imagine how she'd feel. I couldn't imagine how she felt when she held her baby for the last few moments. It's just so disheartening. Everytime when I tell him EG the bit and pieces of what my friend has gone through, my tears roll down uncontrollably.

This is how I started my 2011 new year. There isn't much excitement, only sadness.

When we went for the prayer meet on Sunday, Pastor mentioned that if we have doubt or fear in entering the new year, let's all submit to God. Even if we have uncertainties in front of us, let's just trust in God. Things are not in our control, let's just depend on our Mighty God.

I have learnt that life is fragile, life is short and life is full of uncertainties, so love yourself, and people around you. Treat them good, treat them well, and treasure the relationship. As we grow older, we see many unfortunate things around us. We'll still grow, life goes on. And we'll support and help each other - regardless of our differences.

But for those who hope in the Lord
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not go weary,
they will walk and not be faint.
Isaiah 40:31

So, Hi 2011. Bring it ON!
