How time flies and it's going to be May from tomorrow! May is a very special month for my hubby and myself. =) Our birthdays fall in May, and this 1st May marks the 4th anniversary of our blissful marriage. =)
We are thankful to God for His wondrous love and deep grace for us, without which we often wonder how things would turn out to be. To this day that we still feel just married, we just can't thank God enough for the many blessings we've received. Through good times and bad, we pray that we'll continue to build each other, and be a blessing to our partner. May the Lord continue to fasten us with His hands always...
We shall be away for a short trip, followed by a few days of ' Golden Week ' holiday in Japan. So, if I don't see you at your place, do know that you're missed! =) Meanwhile, may your days stay blessed and gay...
Before we leave, I'll share what we've enjoyed yesterday.
It was a public holiday yesterday with a good weather. We went on a ride to some distant lakes and landmarks still cold. Much to our delight, sakuras were just begining to bloom there.
At the wide open with just 2 of us, we had the luxury to enjoy the landscape quietly...
Someone ever shared with me that, being enveloped in Spring's gentleness is a reward for those who've endured the harsh winter for so long, and I can't agree more =D. Just as tranquility may not come easy, to relish Spring simply spells several months of bitter winter and due endurance.
My husband likes this sandwiched scene. =)
Though the tough days may come, behind them the better ones follow. You just got to have faith, be patient about the wait, and hang on. =)
This dessert on the left is my favourite Japanese dessert, called ' Sakura mochi '. ' Mochi ' is a crepe-like skin made from rice flour.
