#Friendforkeeps.



Couple more hours to my birthday. After so much that's happened I'm not excited nor expectant of it this year, so I was pleasantly surprised by Jacq yesterday when she gave me this for my birthday. It's not about the price of the gift or even if there's one, but that to have a friend who remembers a day that's special to me; so precious. This friend is for keeps, and I'm a blessed girl!

The thought that counts.

And I really mean it when I said I don't want a diamond ring for proposal. It's nice, but it's not a need. I rather get a simple inexpensive ring that I can always wear, than a expensive diamond ring I'd just keep in a jewelry box. Thing is, it's not about how expensive the ring is, but the heart of the man who's giving it to me, and the significance of it. I'd rather use the excess money saved to spend for our honeymoon, or with it even buy some furniture for the new home. Makes more sense doesn't it?

The journey.


I've been having many of such days recently. When night falls, there would be moments I'd stand by the corridor and admire the view and buildings afar. I'd think about life, and death. About what I have, and what I've lost. My past, and my now. The happy moments, and the grieving times. And in between all of these, I saw the lights from the streets or buildings glowing in the dark night. That however dark darkness is, or how far it spans across before my eyes, it's those glimmers far off that catches my attention. 

"Child, you'll never have to be afraid of the dark, because you'll always have a light that illuminates in the lowest moments of your life." 

Thankful that in such trying times, I have a light that doesn't diminish; Jesus.
