Like Father, Like Son

Design by Blessed Ong

“Like father, like son!” speaks of both the DNA and an environment for growth. May the new nature we have in Christ, sacrificially given by our Heavenly Father, be nurtured through the fellowship of the Holy Spirit and fellow saints in molding us to be more like Him!

Happy Mother’s Day!

 

To all beloved mothers in our lives – biological, adoptive and spiritual, Happy Mother’s Day! You are well described in Proverbs 31:28-30 (NIV):

28ย Her children arise and call her blessed;
ย ย ย ย her husband also, and he praises her:
29ย โ€œMany women do noble things,
ย ย ย ย but you surpass them all.โ€
30ย Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting;
ย ย ย ย but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.

We thank God for your unconditional love in our lives.

How the Virus Stole Easterโ€“Or Not

Ms Kristi Bothur composed the poem, “How the Virus Stole Easter” (with a nod to Dr Seuss, she noted), and published it on her blog site, This Side of Heaven. Here is an excerpt:

Twas late in โ€˜19 when the virus began
Bringing chaos and fear to all people, each land.

People were sick, hospitals full,
Doctors overwhelmed, no one in school.

As winter gave way to the promise of spring,
The virus raged on, touching peasant and king.

People hid in their homes from the enemy unseen.
They YouTubed and Zoomed, social-distanced, and cleaned.

April approached and churches were closed.
โ€œThere wonโ€™t be an Easter,โ€ the world supposed.

โ€œThere wonโ€™t be church services, and egg hunts are out.
No reason for new dresses when we canโ€™t go about.โ€

Holy Week started, as bleak as the rest.
The world was focused on masks and on tests.

โ€œEaster canโ€™t happen this year,โ€ they proclaimed.
โ€œOnline and at home, it just wonโ€™t be the same.โ€

Or is it? For the amazing ending, read the rest of the poem here.

It Is Finished!

Design: Blessed Ong

18ย For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your ancestors, 19ย but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect.” (1 Peter 1:18-19, NIV)

“IT IS FINISHED!” declared the Saviour when He died on the cross that first Good Friday (John 19:30). Worthy is the Lamb that was slain! A perfect, spotless, unblemished sacrifice that saved the world!
