Thoughts for Tuesdays: Who are you working for?


Admit it – no matter how much you love your job, there will be moments of frustration, stress, or something that would make you dislike what you’re doing. And that’s normal. It begs the question, why are you doing what you do? Who are you working for? 

Recently our blog received an email from an soon-to-be-missionary who is going to start his/her ministry in a foreign country. At some point in our conversation, he/she had mentioned that he/she was encouraged through our blog and how we have used our arts and crafts into something for God’s glory. And this really … Read more

Thoughts for Tuesdays: Where does my help come from?


Recently I had this wonderful opportunity to drive through the Rockies with my fiance. The last time I was there it was still snowy, so seeing the mountains in summertime was absolutely breathtaking. Something about creation makes us speechless and at a loss for words to describe how wonderful it truly is. The verse Psalm 121:1-2, a Psalm that I have memorized since childhood just kept hovering around my mind. 

I lift up my eyes to the mountains—
    where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord,
    the Maker of heaven and earth.

Last Sunday at church, the … Read more

Thoughts for Tuesdays: On being impatient and learning to trust


As I shared in my previous post, I had recently undergone laser eye surgery. Thank God the surgery went well – and thanks to all of you that shared your tweets and encouragement. The surgery wasn’t as scary as I thought it would, especially since if you think of it, you are awake throughout that short procedure, plus you could see it happening. But, everything was too fuzzy and blurry for me to see what was happening. I don’t think I could have stomached seeing what happened actually. 

On the road to recovery, I was being really impatient. And … Read more

Thoughts for Tuesdays: Preparing for surgery and a Promise


When I was in first year university, I was part of the track and field team. We just finished the season and our team decided that we wanted to do some off-season training, and we went to play badminton! And on that fateful day I tore my ACL, and I had to have surgery. I remember how devastated I was as I will be off training for quite some time, when I was just gearing up to get ready for the next season. But, God was faithful and my surgery went very well and so did my rehabilitation. By God’s … Read more
