A Grown-Up Christmas List


This song is nice and brings some heartfelt hope for humanity. My favourite this Christmas. For Christmas, it is a nice reflection on what it means to be human. The original singer is Amy Grant, who released the song sometime in 1992. These days, there are many others with their own versions, but I think the best male rendition of the song is Michael Buble.

For me, my grownup Christmas list will be:

"That all of us, will be able to know and discover who we are, without needing to pretend to be somebody else. Only then, we can help others to discover their uniqueness, so that there will be more people who are not afraid to show their true selves to one another, in a spirit of loving God and loving one's neighbours."

Sometimes, instead of buying Christmas gifts for people who do not need them, it is nice to ponder and decide to donate the money instead to help those who DO.

The key to relationships (and world peace) is written in Jesus's words:

And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. (Matthew 6:12)

Have a Blessed Christmas.

Hi Kian Seng,

Greetings from San Francisco! I am visiting this great and scenic city with Sheryll & Aron and spent a wonderful 4 days with one of Insu's friend in SF. We even went to Insu's apartment today.

Time flies & it's already being a year since Insu went home to the Lord. Overall, 2006 has being an eventful year; learning to cope with the loss of Insu, trying to manage the kids and household by myself, coping with increasing workload and finally taking on a new job with Bayer MaterialScience, which will eventually take us to Shanghai in June 2007. God has blessed us with so much, my cup overflows.

Wishing you & your family a merry Christmas & happy New Year!

Hope you are all having a great time in SF. Perhaps a White Christmas will cap off the year for the kids.

Keep looking up to God and let him lead. May the blessings that overflow, bless others around you.
