Change my heart O God, may I be like You

It has been a busy month for me, probably the busiest month next to February. I have written so many articles, baked a lot of pastries, delivered talks to a number of events...that's why I was not able to write on this blog. I missed this blog. So amidst this busyness, I thank the Lord for the following blessings:

1001. the amazing feeling of typing "1001" on this gratitude list. (God, I'm so blessed!!!)
1002. opportunities to serve
1003. love for baking and doodling (they keep my sanity)
1004. growing relationship with Totskie (grow in love so they say)
1005. trick or treat with Fei and Alika at Khush Hall. It was my first time. :D

Thanks to my friends who reminded me to blog. :)

1000. 1000 blessings and all the other unwritten graces God has given me

I learned this song from my first SHOUT in YFC. I sing this whenever I feel so blessed or when I ask for the spirit of gratefulness to cover me amidst crisis. And it works every time. I also taught this to my students at GK Sibol school and to my niece Fei-fei. Kids sing this very well because they are always overflowing with gratefulness. With a thousand blessings posted here, together with the unwritten gazillion graces, so I sing...

Thank You, Lord

I wake up in the morning and I seek Your face Oh Lord
I thank You in the evening for Your faithfulness Oh Lord
For the mercy that You bring me has brought me life
For the mercy that You bring me all the time
For the mercy that You bring me has brought be life
So I sing...

I wanna thank You, Lord!
Thank You Lo-ord!
I wanna than You, Lord
For the mercy that You bring me.
