The God-Blessed Box has been neglected for as long as anybody could remember! ( Clearing cobwebs frantically* )
Let me explain : My folks have travelled all the way from Singapore to Japan to visit us!! The past weeks have been incredibly busy, but warm, probably owing to the companionship of my family. =)
I wish I could have visited my blogger friends, check out the Christmas spirit around the world, and count down to Christmas faithfully with the windows of an Advent Calendar. Nothing comes close enough and TALA, it's Christmas Eve today!
But wait, I think I've got more than what I've wished for ...
* My family came and left in good health, and enjoyed their very first Winter experience.
* I did a sneak check on my blogger pals, most looked Christmasy with lots of good cheer!
* This Christmas marks my very 4th year in Japan! And this heart of mine is slowly accepting the much dreaded foreign lifestyle.
* I'm remembered by friends from miles away. =) I'm loved, and cared for by my loved ones.
And much MORE though I shan't rattle on what's on my blessing-list, but I really must acknowledge this before I go.
I'm loved by Jesus, who came and and be born as a helpless babe, to give me a hope and a belief. That I celebrate Christmas for an intimate reason, with joy and a festive spirit. Thank you Lord, for who You are and why You came. We dedicate this Christmas again to You, for You are the reason to celebrate.
