Well, as an individual, I have no plans or needs.
I am also someone who pooh-pooh at those who make resolutions and break them.
I live by Jesus's word of - Do not worry.
"Can any of you add a day to your life by worrying about it?" (Matthew 6:27)
But, the tremors we experienced and the tragedy of the tsunami have shaken me a little. I am not worried if the earth gulped me but I cannot bear the thought of anything happening to my precious kids and reliable ATM aka hubby (hey, what kind of description is that?). I have these flashing thoughts of the 'what if'.
- the tremors happened when my kids were at school?
- the tidal waves swept the coastline in Esplanade
- something goes wrong with the Penang Bridge?
I will welcome 2005 with a lot of prayers to God to constantly keep my children safe. As for the rest of the world, I will ask the Big Boss upstairs to keep them safe, worry free, healthy, happy and kind.
Have a Happy New year to all and let us pause for a minute of silence when the clock strikes twelve tonight. Let us do this as a mark of respect to the hundred of thousands whom had perished. But most of all, let us ask our Almighty to give the survivors strength to carry on living. Cheers to all! Be happy and be nice!
