PEACE OF MIND
If you were to ask your neighbor, "What would give you peace of mind?" he might tell you, "A vacation in Bermuda !" or "An extra hundred grand would give me peace!", or "A new Ferrari would make me content!" But going to places - and getting stuff - is usually
a temporary solution ...
Peace of mind rarely comes from getting more stuff. Getting more stuff usually leads to wanting even more stuff! Peace of mind starts with being grateful for what
we have right now.
When we are thankful for what we have - for the friends we have, and for the things we've got,
we attract more good people and good things!
People who always complain about what they DON'T HAVE, stay stuck.
Complainers attract more things to complain about!
It is a law of life. It's hard to explain, but you can observe it around you.
We get more of what we dwell upon. "Start by being thankful. Be happy with what you have now, and more will come your way." It's a practical advice: Every time you say a silent "thank you" become more peace

Why am I saying all these. My mother in law (gee's mum) expressed her concerns when she was told by him that he is planning to downgrade to a HDB flat and also at the same time to retire from work. She could not sleep the whole night thinking about it. My heart went out to her for her concern. She is after all still a mother. We have to alley her fears that he is doing alright and that ultimately all of us will have to retire. Thank God for the durians that Gee brought for her to soothe and calm her down.

We had wanted to treat her and our parents to a feast of the king fruits, but she beat Vincent to pay for them - total $150 for 16kg of durians from Geylang !! We must treat them to Cat Mountain King durians when my girl comes home.
The Solid Rock
My hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus’ blood and righteousness.
I dare not trust the sweetest frame,But wholly trust in Jesus’ Name.
On Christ the solid Rock I stand,
All other ground is sinking sand;
All other ground is sinking sand.
When darkness seems to hide His face,
I rest on His unchanging grace.
In every high and stormy gale,
My anchor holds within the veil.
His oath, His covenant, His blood,
Support me in the whelming flood.
When all around my soul gives way,
He then is all my Hope and Stay.
When He shall come with trumpet sound,
Oh may I then in Him be found.
Dressed in His righteousness alone,
Faultless to stand before the throne.

We enjoyed ourselves thoroughly and feel we should make this sort of night out more often in future. Glad that mum looked happy.
Next time, need to remember to take my camera along.

Today, I received an email from Susan with the following encouraging words again,
" Hi all, I do not think it is a coincidence that my eldest daughter shared with me the above song after she came back from Cebu on Sunday and the lyrics are exactly in congruence to last Sunday's sermon (God Remembers). I believe God is reassuring all of us who are serving him in big or small ways that it is all worthwhile. Be encouraged. I am attaching the lyrics but you can listen to the song on Y-Tube.
Lyrics from the song: THANK YOU FOR GIVING TO THE LORD
I dreamed I went to heaven
And you were there with me;
We walked upon the streets of gold
Beside the crystal sea
We heard these angels singing
Then someone called your name
We turned and saw this young man running
And he was smiling as he came.
And he said, “Friend you may not know me now.”
And then he said, “But wait,
You used to teach my Sunday School
When I was only eight
And every week you would say a prayer
Before the class would start
one day when you said that prayer,
I asked Jesus in my heart.”
Chorus: so THANK YOU FOR GIVING TO THE LORD
I am a life that was changed.
Thank you for giving to the Lord
I am so glad you gave.
Then another man stood before you
said, “Remember the time
A missionary came to your church
And his pictures made you cry.
You didn’t have much money,
But you gave it anyway.
Jesus took the gift you gave
And that’s why I’m in heaven today.”
One by one they came
Far as your eyes could see.
Each life somehow touched
By your generosity.
Little things that you had done
they went unnoticed on the earth
In heaven, now proclaimed.
And I know up in heaven
You’re not supposed to cry
But I am almost sure
I saw tears in your eyes.
As Jesus took your hand
And you stood before the Lord
He said, “My child, look around you.
Great is your reward.”
"Thank You" By Ray Boltz
Look at the seed of MSW.
