Climb Until Your Dream Comes True




Often your tasks will be many,
and more than you think you can do
Often the road will be rugged
and the hills insurmountable, too

Always remember, the hills ahead
Are never as steep as they seem,
And with faith in your heart start upward
And climb ’till you reach your dream,

Nothing in life that is worthy
Is ever too hard to achieve
If you have the courage to try it
And you have the faith to believe…

Faith is a force that is greater
Than knowledge or power or skill
And many defeats turn to triumph
If you trust in God’s wisdom and will

Faith is a mover of mountains,
There’s nothing that God cannot do,
So start out today with faith in your heart
And Climb Until Your Dream Comes True.

Landed



Our flight landed into Atlanta few minutes ago (ahead of schedule), but we are asked to sit in the airplane because the Customs and Immigration office will open only at 5:30 AM.

This concludes my vacation time and now it's time to get back to daily routine.

Balancing work and life




Recently, I started shutting down all my work by Saturday evening to enjoy a weekly day of rest.  During my vacation, I did not logon to my computer for over a week - I stayed away from getting online, emails and work related stuff.  The real reason was I was away from internet and had limited time to spend with my family and friends.  

Even With all the advanced technological inventions around us, people are working longer hours compared to our older generations.  As a result, leisure and family time gets squeezed out of our lives.  Work is an excuse for many of us to escape from our family, friends and church.

Certainly, there is a clear need for balance between work and leisure. Hard work is good, but the sabbath day is God's gift to us - to bring balance to our lives. Every one of us need one day 'free time' from our daily work schedule to enjoy this gift.

Plan to build a good balance between work and rest - it helps us being productive the following week.
