New Year

2009 began with a Thanksgiving Celebration with the Canossian sisters here in Singapore where 4 of their sisters renewed their 25th and 50th anniversary of religious profession on 1 Jan. It is always touching to witness religious celebrating their jubilees. Very inspiring, encouraging.... Sometimes I do wonder will I ever get to that stage... 25 years..... 50 years.... Really, it is the faithfulness of God that sustain us. Thanks to the sisters, choosing this day to celebrate their 25 and 50 years of God's Faithful love, a great way to begin a new year not just for them, but for me.... Gratefulness and blessings.

In the evening, we had another celebration... one of our junior professed sisters celebrated her birthday. Wow! New Year Baby! Another thanksgiving for the gift of life and also Pauline vocation.

The day end with a car ride to downtown Orchard to enjoy the lightings. Talking about economic crisis, people comparing that this year's decoration was not that great, but personally I enjoyed and like it. Not matter how, I am proud that Singaporeans still continue to express their creativities. Bravo! (Would like to show pictures, but I was the driver, can't risk the lives of my sisters to capture those beauties, right?)
