Never Be Discouraged..

Much has happened since early January... no doubt every day is just another day but to some, it can be happiness, joy but to some others, each day brings sorrow and pain.

Happenings in my family for this January month...the sudden demise of my FIL, my mum feeling unwell for over a week now, spending a big portion doing some repairs in the house, my poor sister's car stolen right in front of her house last night and.... the list might go on and on...

All these incidents are discouraging...

But whatever it takes, I know God is in control of it all... I don't wanna cry defeat... cos He says, "I will never forsake nor leave you"... and isn't it written, "When God is for us, who can be against us?"

For those who are heavily laden, just cast your cares and worries upon His feet...
Yes, mine is heavy now... and I shall do just that....


  1. Ya mum, things might be tough, situation might seem unpleasant but know that God is alway here with us..Never give up, always rejoice in the Lord..He is in control

  2. Yes, He is.. good or bad.. He will make the best out of each situation..

  3. Thanks Claire for dropping by and for leaving your comment. nice and simple blog you have here. Keep up the good work and Keep in touch :)

  4. Sometimes...I thing...God is just too busy to take care all of us. So we have to look out for ourselves. :D

  5. aswani: thanks for dropping by...

    merryn: *hugs* u too..

    Tekkaus: Never too busy with His kids, i bet! :)

  6. I used to think that God puts my house on fire to punish me for my sins, but now, I know that He's just lighting the way for me so that i could see who is good and who is insincere to me.

    He is showing you something Claire. Maybe one day you'll know what it is. God works in mysterious way. All we need to do is just have faith in Him. He'll take care of you.

  7. mery: let the weak say I am strong.. yes, i will...

    cleffairy: gosh, now i need u to comfort me back.. thanks girl.. i need that.. life is such.. we experience times like these to make us wiser, stronger, and more sensitive towards others' needs too...

  8. Life is an endless cycle of ups and downs.
    Things just happened, all at once, can be overwhelming.
    Your sister's car was stolen? Oh dear.
    Just take everything in your strides, dear.

  9. as the saying goes, when the going gets tough, the tough gets going.

    There is surely a silver lining under all these happenings

  10. I agree with Cleffairy's post! I can certainly understand how you must be feeling, having had those kind of "days" but good always comes from bad. Take good care of yourself and sending you a big hug!

  11. yes, Cheryl, I do believe that life is such, it has its ups and downs and the downs make us wiser and stronger... thanks for the big hug!!

  12. God allows all these challengers in our life so that we can be more closer to Him thus make our faith stronger.

    Remember sister, God is always in control in every situation and He will never leave nor forsake you.

    Let the weak say "I am strong!"

  13. reanaclaire,...have you ever,i repeat have you ever ever in your quite moments ponders,with all the things around us which we thought were done by God,were actually not done by him - not all i think .many times i think we all are actually - Gods.we can make things happened too and we can love, kill,destroys and many more.i hope what i just said may not be that offending to times im just as doubtful as i am writing this.

  14. Claire, the new year is approaching soon, gone with the old and bad and welcome spring with a cheery heart, ok ?

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

The Good, The Bad But Not Ugly

MISSING AND NOW BACK IN ACTION...  I checked back my last post and it was 8 March last month and today is 19 April, less than two months only.  So what has been happening in my life?  Lots and lots... good news, bad news, sad news... all concerning health and I guess this is our life cycle as we live day by day.   My health is also not that "fantastic" during the past few months, but mine is a small rock compared to giant boulder which my best buddy is undergoing... I guess some of you know what is happening to her from her blog posts.  I was totally devastated when this happened to her, my tears couldn't help falling and my heart goes out to her.  I am ashamed to say that instead of me giving the comfort that she needs, I am the one that have been receiving her strength in times like this.  She might be crushed physically but she is not broken in her spiritual mind and soul.  One word... "Unbreakable!"  She is a shining example..... "What can death do to m

Exploring The Sea Cruise Royal Caribbean

CRUISING ALONG.... Once we deposited our bags in our cabins, we had our buffet meal at the Hammerjack restaurant and exactly at 4pm, we heard a loud Horn signal...  ITS TIME TO SAIL ALONG THE PACIFIC OCEAN! And while the ship started to sail, we humans started to walk and explore.... to familarize ourselves inside the ship....  Elevators on each side of the ship....  Making my mark....  On another side....  We walked along to check out our food outlets... This Promenade Cafe  had became our regular joint .... We like to sit there enjoying our hot drinks and desserts... Free flow of food day and night.... Passing through the bars to the casino... The casino will open only when the ship is in international waters...  At one of the jackpot machines... I wonder if they are real?? But they are only $1 bundles... Then we went up to the highest floor.... The swimming deck.... Taken against the sun.... Nice sunset in the evening.... The Happy Trio!
