Future Things

March 30th

God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away
- Revelation 21:4

Sometimes the future looks dark. Because of financial problems or health problems it can look very uncertain.

We must accept the fact that life is often full of troubles and disappointments. In fact Jesus said, "In the world ye shall have tribulation." But for God's children, there is always a sight ahead which gives hope and joy. There are burdens to carry now, there are battles that must be fought, and often there are tears to shed. But think of that day when God will be with his people in heaven.

Here is the promise: "there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying neither shall there be any more pain." What a day! Home at last. Free from conflict and struggle. Free from the temptation to sin; free from the very presence of sin.

Where there is no sin there is no sorrow, there is no crying, no pain. Living in the presence of Jesus and finding it a delight to praise and serve him forever.

While we are yet here we need to remember that the Lord uses our sufferings to move us to think about heaven, and to rejoice in the thought of going there, and to live now in the anticipation of having every tear wiped away one day soon.

Milk & Butter and Alexis

Milk & Butter wasnt that good.
Alexis was to DIE for, although definitely some place I would only go for special occasions, like that day :)
Having tea in a very upclass place like this reminded us of tea in London, minus one other special person of course.

Happy birthday.

i will stay

During our trip, we rarely went to the same location twice.
This was because of time constraint and other areas we wanted to cover.
We were in Paris and we didnt even have time to go to the Eiffel Tower twice, although occasionally we could see the tip from a distance.

The first time we went to Shakespeare and co. it was raining.
I had no clue of such place. Lillian took Xin Yi and I there. The whole place sold books; novels and classics.
The interior was very much old and mouldy but refreshing at the same time.
They barred the entry upstairs that day because I guess, it was raining.

Some time in our 5 days in Paris, we had some slack in our schedule.
We wanted to spend our last day chilled and relaxed so we decided to go back there.
 No regrets! because this time the upstairs was opened.
They had tonnes more books and a really nice seating area with the window open and jazz music playing outside on the streets. Three typewriters scattered around.

Definitely the most prominent memory I have of this place is of two young handsome French boys who walked in, in the midst of Lillian and I playing chess. 
One came first and played the piano casually, humming along. Another came in sat down beside him and played a duet on the spot, completely by ear. Id thought they were acquaintance at first from the sheer chemistry they had playing the piano, but I soon saw that they only introduced themselves to each other after they'd finish their duet.

ah i cannot even comprehend how i feel.
Here is handsome French number two playing the piano after the first one left.
