My top daily moments-
1) Attended Inductive Bible Study via Google Hangout for the first time!
2) Breeziest environment to do my Inductive Bible Study homework on Colossians. Can’t say that for that level of effort to do the homework though.
3) After dinner dessert- mind boggling choices of fillings for Chinese pancakes whipped out by these tattooed couple. Sweet couple that worked so in sync, fast yet steady and calm. Thumbs up!

My top daily moments:
1) Working from my fav coffee place in Penang
2) Sitting at my fav seat beside the street level window.
3) Circled for an hour looking for a place to catch up over beer with an old friend only to come back to the Indian Restaurant and finding out that they do sell beer after all. Life is such. And hence, beautiful and interesting.

When night falls, grief goes up

I noticed that the pain increases especially at night, and especially before bed time.

I miss my mom so much. It’s almost a month! But I still can’t believe it at times that she is no longer around.

The missing part is awful. So much so that I caught my mind saying sometimes, this s*cks!!!!!
Though this kind of word doesn’t help any bit but only make me feel worse.

I miss my pretty mom. I miss her smile. I miss her voice. I miss seeing her dancing. I miss her cooking. I miss her hugs. I miss her smell. I miss kissing her. I miss stroking her short just grown hair after chemo. I miss squeezing her manicured soft hands.

This is awful, simple awful.

Death will strip us of the clothing of flesh, and all the comforts of life, as well as put an end to all our troubles here below. Naked we came into this world, and naked shall we go out of it. But, [2.] Gracious souls are not found naked in the other world; no, they are clothed with garments of praise, with robes of righteousness and glory. They shall be delivered out of all their troubles, and shall have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb, Rev. 7:14 .3. The believer’s assurance of his interest in this future blessedness, on a double account:—(1.)
