Random Thoughts before a Nice evening with Family

IMG_6314_gareth_elysia.jpg

I appreciated the reminder last night from the church council of BLC that I must be cautious not to neglect family in the midst of a pretty busy schedult lately (at times necessary and other times perhaps self-inflicted).

The above picture really captured Gareth’s excitement over having the chance of carrying Elysia. I’ve always found Elysia very responsive to her elder brother. Of course, there are times when both of them cry or yell at the same time … they “drive” me up the wall …

I’m way behind … in terms of reading the blogs at especially Planet Emergent and Generous Orthodoxy Think Tank … lots of good stuff …

I was invited (I think a second time) to share at the Scripture Union and Fellowship of Evangelical Students staff devotions this morning. I found it to be a good time for me to PAUSE as well …

Troubled after a denominational meeting … made me wonder how did we land up like this, what makes people react a certain way .. I also questioned why do I have questions like this. Am I weird? am I not normal? am I ok? or is there something seriously wrong with some versions of Christianity we’ve allowed to grow unchecked … hmmm …

sometimes I wonder what have I got myself into … Lord have mercy 1000 times!

“honeymoon” period for new responsibilities (esp. at the denominational level) REALLY has been short … 😛 there’s too much at one glance … thus, I need to step back a little to re-look and re-focus.

There are still unpacked boxes … and details to settle after we’ve moved in our new place. I miss the pool …

At least tonight, we have an evening to ourselves .. as a family. I’d like to treasure that .. before I go off again to Seremban tomorrow and hurry back for the Christian Federation Malaysia 7th National conference 🙂

I’ll live one day at a time … off to IMU CF in 5 minutes. Looking forward to follow up on an email conversation.
