Dear Daddy in Heaven,

Thank you for...

the year end holiday that I'm having. Though it's much shorter than usual, it was a good time for me to rest and laze around.

Your faithfulness. i have no idea how i made it tru Year 2012 but only through Your strength.

Hwei Sue who has always do all she could to support and help me out.

the friends you've sent to encourage me in Penang.

connecting me to wonderful people so that i can do more in school.

protecting me from danger as i travel up and down the hill.

for the state funds that was given to my school. I'm amazed by Your plans.

Your forgiveness and love. You give me reason to let go and not continue to hurt myself.

$$ that was entrusted to me.

the opportunity to study in USM. Though it was disappointing in many ways, God in You i trust. I'll learn and grow from this experience though it is hard to swallow.

always being there for me when I was so upset with life. Thank you :)

being my security. In you, I can stand secure because I've everything :)

the grace to live another year :)

Dearest Daddy,

I thank you that you are always with me even when I feel unchristian, selfish and ugly.

For all the ideas that you've given me, I thank you for each one of them.
None of it belongs to me. It's your property, it's yours.
I'm just using it for awhile.
Soon someone else would use it and it will pass it to them

Dad, i thank you for YOU. for you always protects, always love.
Though i'm living in a imperfect world, You are still in control.

Yes, You are so in control.
You are so so good. So good to me.
I need not to feel fearful for You give much more than I can ever imagine or dream off.

You are for me, who can be against me :)

Dad, people come and go.
Some are too far, too busy, too sleepy... just being human.
I thank you, you are always here for me.

Thank YOU :)

PS : Happy Teacher's Day, Dad. Thank YOU for being the best-est teacher to me.

Thank You Daddy for the new place.
Thank You for teaching me so many things,
for being patient with me,
for sending me people who love me and want to support me.

Thank You for softening my heart
and opening my ears and eyes to see
that through it all,
You are behind everything.

You are in control, and
You are good.
So very good.

Thankful that I am able to give God tithes.

It's a good feeling, earning yourself a living.
Although there are endless bills to pay
and it's time to repay the study expenses loan -
It's a strange feeling, supporting myself backwards
like this.

It's a good feeling, supporting myself
like this.

Thank You, God,

Your mercies are new every morning
Your grace is enough for me
Beyond human understanding
You provide for all my needs

Things are always
'could have been better'
In retrospect
But when I look back,
I see endless blessings
And know,
You're already there

And it just keeps getting better... :)

One day, someday...

So yeah,

Dearest Daddy,

gosh.. it has been a long time since i thank you here!
oh today, i must write it down here!

with 7 subjects, 20 credits and 34 contact hours per week,
i really thought i wasn't going survive last semester.
everyone i met said i was crazy to take so many hours.

the counseling sessions was breaking every parts of me.
the pile of assignment brought me to tears many nights.
the issues that i was going through was so tiring to think about.
the crazy emotions that i felt was just.... indescribable? hehehe...
the unpredictable events that happened was super overwhelming for me.
the last two months of the semester that i couldn't find time to go back home made me really emo!
the perfectionist in me to do well in every presentation and assignments pissed me off many times. i wish i could just simple do and passed up.
the days that i didn't have time for meals because classes was 8am to 11pm and just enough time take a short bath made me feel so sedih wei!
the stress that i gave myself to do micro teaching and counseling sessions made me very sick and lost some weight.
the mornings that i had to dragged myself out of the bed and ran to class made me realized i was and still is very weak.
the nights when we had meetings and only some was cooperating, i was on the edge of yelling out loud.

oh yes, it was a super dramatic semester!
but i thank you that You were still in control during those times.

i thank you for your strength that sustained me.
as i looked back, all those horrible moments seems to be awesome because i see you moving powerfully in my life =)

i thank you for your love and patient.
i'm convince no one is more loving and more patient than you do. the days that i was so stubborn and insisted my way yet you were still there for me =)

i thank you for your faithfulness.
do i need to say more? you are always there tho i has forsaken you many times

i thank you for meeting my needs, wants and desires.
in my busyness, i still wished to go out and have fun. i thank you for the many meet-ups with friends that i could make it. i thank you for all the fun!

i thank you for the good night sleeps.
surprisingly and miraculously i could sleep at 11pm most of the days during my last semester. maybe i was too tired to not sleep but then i still wanna thank You that i didn't have dreams about me running that would make me really tired. hahahaa...

i thank you for the awesome friends
yes friends who were there to encourage me when i felt i was the most stupid person on earth. friends who laugh with me for the silly stuff that happens. friends who went prayer meets and church with me even though they were dead tired. friends who cried with me when i was sad for no reason. friends who listens to my complain, grumble, and nonsense. friends who was very persistent to drag me out of room and chill out. friends who came for sleepover kononnya to help me do assignments but end up talking till late at nite. friends who share to me their thoughts, disappointment and joy =) friends who tell me they like me. friends who are willing to sacrifice their time and effort for me. friends who are as emo as me. friends who are as ridiculous and silly as me. Oh thank you for all the great people around me =)

oh there are so much to thank you for! the wisdom of yours that helped me to manage my time well and study smart, your joy that has been my strength, the word that you have spoken to me, the good result that you have bless me with... the list goes on!

oh i'm truly thankful! =)

still loving you =)

Dearest Daddy,

Thank You for dying on the cross for us this day..
for not giving up on us.

Thank You for Your sacrificial act of kindness--
that You did not withhold any part of Your being..

Thank You, Daddy.. for choosing to be born--
You could have let us rot and die in our sinfulness and then create a fresh batch of possibly 'sinless' Christians..

Thank You Lord, that not even death can separate us now.
Thank You for breaking the power of death.

In Jesus' name,

Dear God, why do people take people for granted? how do people get so blind, so deaf, so cold, that a clanging cymbal and so many wake up calls fail to make them see, hear, or feel? how much does it take to pass that threshold? will people only fret when time is running out?

i don't feel like thanking You today. but all the more i know i should. because it is all not by accident. i see the pieces coming together. Thank You, God, for Your timing. unlike us mere humans, You never make mistakes. though all else falls away, still i praise.

Dearest Daddy,

You know that these few days have been particularly difficult for me.

And yet You remind me that this battle is not mine, but Yours.

I ask:
for Your strength,
for Your wisdom,
for Your comfort,
and for Your peace.

Thank You for asking me to live life a day at a time.
It's hard enough.
But Your grace is sufficient for me,
Your power is made perfect in my brokenness.

Though I fail people,

You keep telling me "Repent, confess, turn away, I will clean you again"

Though people fail me,

You will never ever fail me nor forsake me.

Thank You, sweet Lord.

Persevering in Your strength,
Victoria :)

Dearest Dad,

Your timing is perfect :) I have just the amount of money needed--not too much where I will overspend, and not too little where I can be tempted to commit a crime--and enough to be saved as well.

Thank You for providing. Thank You for knowing what I need even without me stating it.

Teach me to trust in You more and more,

that through knowing You I will be content with just having You.

Your daughter,
Victoria :)

Dearest Daddy,

I used to wonder why You sent me to KL to study instead of to Singapore when I thought that Singapore was the better choice (from a very materialistic point of view).

But You know better. Oh Daddy dearest, You definitely know better.

You needn't have to reveal it to me, but yesterday You showed me the whole picture of all that has happened in my life and how it is important for what You are doing in me, and how You will use it in the future to glorify You.

I know it is not complete yet because Your aim is more than showing me the complete picture... but truly Your aim is to teach me to have faith in You that the puzzles of my life will lead to a beautiful picture.

Thank You for breaking me so that You could build me up again on the right foundation.

I would never have been able to come so far without You, and without the group of solid Christian sisters You have very very graciously put in my life.

I praise You for Your kindness, gentleness, persistence, mercy, grace, goodness, and faith in me.

I love You.

Daddy, Daddy, Daddy.

Thank You for You.

Dear God,

yesterday John & i were driving home from church. it was a long long ride, sending friends back to their faraway homes. but it was okay, good for endless chatter.

our conversation leaped from topic to topic. then came the subject of Photography. we talked about how having an eye for the right angle is probably more important than the canggihness of the camera. he pointed out that the easiest photos to take are those of wide open skies, scenery.

it was true; it's hard to go wrong with photos of Your creation. it was beautiful. God, Your artwork is beautiful. and so flawless. that was the first time i looked up at the clouds that busy weekend.

how can i ever thank You enough.

irresistible, colourful tiny wooden pegs caught my eye. i picked out a few, envisioning with glee all the cute things i can make. after 20 minutes of careful selection, returning some to their respective baskets so as not to pass the price quota, i handed them to the Thai(?) lady. she counted them and said, "i give you 2 free". i was so happy! =)

i saw a book shop with rows & rows and stacks & stacks of nice new books with crisp pages. i walked in, back & forth, round & round. i have to be careful with my spending, i thought to myself. after 20 minutes, i picked one out for a friend. the cash register showed half its price. i asked the lady, and she said, that's right! i was so happy! =)

i strolled into a quaint craft shop. it was dusty and disorganized, manned by a post-retirement aged man. he explained to me how he made the various decorative items in the shop, and i was amazed. he had a scowl on his face, but i knew he was proud of his work. i rummaged in the old faded boxes, and after 20 minutes i found an alphabet+numbers clay mold! exactly what i've been looking for, at an affordable price. i was so happy! =)

my roommate's brother & friend were hooked to their online guy game, which gave them vampire eyes. i was going to McD and volunteered getting them food. my roommate had to shout to get their attention off the game, it was so funny! 20 minutes later, at McD, i bought the 4 meal sets and gathered the bags in my hands. the teddy bear cashier perceived me too small for such a task and ran ahead to open the glass doors for me. i was so happy! =)

Thank You, God, for these little happy happenings. =)

Dear Daddy,

Thank You for providing :) You know this month is pretty hard for me financially, yet You never failed to provide at the right time! Every time I am short on money to eat, You feed me by sending all the people who owe me money to repay me!

Hehe thank You Daddy for protecting me as well!! Yesterday while walking back to get my car (you know it's quite a distance from KPD to Jalan Kasah), my shoe strap broke!! I had to use my scrunchie to secure my slipper and I was limping the whole way.. like orang cacat. Hehe. And Daddy it was so scary, I walked past a few men and then they started following me!!! So scary.. God I was truly so scared, and prayed like crazy. After walking behind me, a group of guys passed by, then the other men changed their direction as well. Thank You GOD!!! Slipper broke, some more I was carrying 2 laptops + my own handbag, I wouldn't have been able to run if they came after me. Thank You Daddy!!!!!!

Hehe I got so much to thank You Dad, I don't know where to start!

Thank You for teaching me how to solve a conflict properly, for opening my eyes to see both sides of the story, for loving me even when I don't feel like loving you or even the people in my life.

Thank You for letters! I like how people make efforts to show how much they care, and I thank You Lord that these people are so loving!

Thank You for bible study with your FES servant, who makes time for me to teach me Your Word. Thank You for her nonsensical lame jokes, for her heart for young people, for her love for You Lord. She is an inspiration :)

Thank You Daddy for Anna! You know why ;) hehe too many to post down.. heheheh.

I look forward to more opportunities to thank You Daddy, thank You for creating in me a new person :)

Love you :)

Hey Daddy,

Through your help, I survived my 5th semester in Uni.
Fuh! I was so wrong to think Uni would be easy road.
Thank you for you help and strength!

But then, sometimes I feel I didn't depend on your strength
And I did it my way and not yours. I'm sorry.
Thank you for your grace and being patient with me!

Through the hustle and bustle of my daily life,
many time I have forgotten and forsaken you
Thank you for your faithfulness and never leave me.

Oh gosh... it's hard living for you!
The longer I live for you, it seems harder.
Thank you for living the hardest life on earth that I may never ever say it's too hard.

As I look back, truly You heard my prayers.
The little, merepek, self-fish, mengada, stupid, lebih-lebih, crappy prayers, You heard it.
Thank you for listening to my insignificant prayer.

Before entering 5th semester, I was super emo about the seniors who graduated.
I didn't think I could enjoy or survive uni without them.
Thank you for proving me wrong and providing me with new-found friends =)

You have been good to me, really good
though I don't think I have been good to you
Thank you for your unconditional love that I could not and might never comprehend.

Thank YOU =)

S'lalu memperhatikan Ku
Tak ada alasan ku ragu-ragu

Dear God,

So many things to thank You for in the last week,
where do I start!

1. Thank You for a quick recovery! =)

2. Thank You that the lecturer allowed me to have another sitting for my midterms, although I later found out it's actually not allowed! What would I do if I had to forfeit 30% of my grades! and thank You that they're so so nice to me. =)

3. Thank You that we couldn't find a parking space nearer to the clinic we'd intended to go to, that we had to park farther away, and ended up going to a different clinic. we later found out I was the last patient, it's non-24-hours, which means a lower bill! only had to pay RM45 when I'd initially prepared RM60. =)

4. Thank You for McD porridge! not very yummy, but easily attainable. =)

5. Thank You for the cab driver who called out to me - I didn't have to wait at all. Thank You for the very clean, nice-smelling cab, friendly driver - I felt comfortable and didn't have to worry. Thank You that he sent me all the way up into Puduraya so I wouldn't get caught in the rain. He said, so I wouldn't fall sick again. =)

6. Thank You for the bus ticket!! I reached Puduraya at 4:08pm, and got a 4:30pm ticket! very amazing for a Friday evening. What are the chances that the
tickets were all sold out, and there was only 1 last ticket at 4:30pm?! Did You reserve that just for me, so I wouldn't have to wait at dingy Puduraya till 9:30pm? =)

7. Thank You for safe journeys to and fro. I've read of so many road accidents, but all my life I've never been in one. Your angels, they do their job well. =)

8. Thank You for my family, I love them!!! =)

9. Thank You for my church, my other family. =)

10. Thank You for showing me it's all alright, You've got my world in Your hands, I don't have to fret or be sad. Thank You for Your hand of protection, You care for me and show me Your love in so many little ways, everyday. Thank You that You know ahead of time, You have plans better than mine, and You go before me. =)

Thank You, God, for that parking spot which was on the nearest row to the mall's entrance!! despite the super jam & public holiday+weekend traffic from KL & Singapore, and the sign showing only 16 parking spots left, you still provided, just as we'd prayed:

Heavenly Father,
Even though it was a very hormonal month,

I thank you for no major cramps and no mood swing days

I thank you for strength even though everything was draining me down

I thank you for perseverance. That I still went for worship training even though I would rather be a bum at home

I thank you for the satisfaction in life. I do not need to be an A student to be smart. I am smart in my own stuff

I thank you for jSh who bought me my cravings, gave me foot massages because I have sensitive nerves that induces cramps, and took care of me when I was sick.

Thank you Father for that one pair of footprints in the sand.

Dear God, this is about a week late, but i just wanna say...

- Thank You for the opportunity to study the course of my choice.

- Thank You for giving me motivation to study

- Thank You for giving me a rightly functioning body.
(my back ached because i sat in the same position staring at my books & laptop the whole day, urging me to take a break yet i ignored it, which later caused me a very painful backache all the way up the left of my back & neck, extending to my temples with a throbbing headache! i also ignored the warning signs of headache & continued reading when the room lights were off, with concentrated light from only the table lamp, & continued staring at the laptop - although i knew they aggravate my headache!!)

- Thank You for being with me throughout the 5 hours i tossed & turned in anguish, trying to get some sleep, yet being disturbed by racing thoughts.

- Thank You for hearing my prayers asking You to make me well again.
- Thank You for giving my that hunch about vomiting, thus i was able to reach the toilet in time.
(i didn't realize my stomachache was due to my dinner - fries, Coke, & choc cheese cake - not a good combination!)

- Thank You for a rather painless & easy vomiting process.
(gross unnecessary details, but i really mean it - Thank You)

- Thank You for John who was still wide awake at 5am (who else could i call for help at such an hour?!).
- Thank You for his caring heart & patience to try to hear my weak barely-a-whisper voice, his understanding longlong prayer, just like my Mum's.
- Thank You for answering.
- Thank You that he suggested propping my pillow higher to relieve the headache.
- Thank You for showing me that my bolster could be used as a pillow, and to push the other pillow under my back for more support.

- Thank You for removing those useless nonsense worries about the exam, and for helping me fall into a deep sleep.

- Thank You that i woke up just 4 hours later feeling so refreshed, as though i'd slept for 8-10 hours!
- Thank You that my headache & backache was completely gone! it's so amazing coz they'd been there for days, maybe weeks (though mild).

- Thank You for caring about these petty things. which other god does that?

Thank you Lovey for the beautiful saree you have provided for me through a friend. Even though it's old, it mathches my skin colour!

Thanks for the two indian salesgirls who told me that the blue saree is nicer than the green one. I felt sad at that time but oh you do know the best!

Thank you for providing the only indian friend in my class, Lalitha who knows how to tie the saree. She's really good! I don't really feel shy exposing my stomach with a friend I already know. You know what I'll feel ya, Lovey!

Thanks for my kind Sharu who borrowed me a bangle and for Esper who gave me a "putter"(I'm not sure of the spelling")

And for a GREAT DAY in school!!!

Thank You, God,
for HuaFu & SekHee

who, on their way to college early this morning, so thoughtfully called me at 6.58am to ask if i wanted to walk to college together.

i would've freaked out if i had to walk alone in the dark.
i probably would've ran the whole way
and maybe fell into a drain, knowing me. =D

Thank You, God, for sore throats.

i don't like sore throat
i don't know why it likes me
so so painful,
so super ouch!

swallowing, usually an automatic process,
requires conscious effort
when my throat
is oh-so-sore...

i need concentration & skill when swallowing
squeeze my throat so it don't hurt too much.
try to swallow as little as possible,
chew my food as much as possible.

i hope
with this post
i'll remember
when my throat is better

how thankful i am
dear, dear God,
for a soreless throat.
i won't take for granted.
