i have this necklace. this taonga was a gift from my mum for my graduation from university. it is a symbol of lifelong learning, and that we are always on a journey. we keep moving on. i am comforted by the fact that this stands for something so important. and at times, sometimes months on end, i will wear it as a symbol of the season i am in. when I wear it now, my son loves to play with […]
Come, Thou Fount of every blessing, Tune my heart to sing Thy grace;Streams of mercy, never ceasing,Call for songs of loudest praise.Teach me some melodious sonnet,Sung by flaming tongues above.Praise the mount, I’m fixed upon it,Mount of Thy redeeming love. Robert Robinson (1757) Tuning Rotating the pegs to stretch or relieve the string to produce the acceptable pitch Turning the dial to adjust the frequency to the required signal Balancing each part in order for the machine to run smoothly […]
Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus 1 Thessalonians 5: 16-18 Thankfulness. Thankful in every situation.

I have been reflecting on this recently; we are now a new family unit. It is no longer just Hubby and I. We have this new layer around us and we know […]
Thanksgiving is not a celebration that is well known or practiced in my homeland. It’s something that is known about but not really practiced. With a little over 10 days until it is here… I have heard many share stories of how they celebrate and even tried pumpkin pie for the first time. Being surrounded by friends and colleagues of many nationalities here in South Korea, I definitely have become more openminded to the idea. I have also been reminded […]
Today’s been a tough one. I am about to share from the heart. And it may not make sense. But I think I have the guts to press publish… Recently I have been having echos of my past… Of my eldest-child lens, the one I looked through a lot.
