Loves the taste of this menu, one of my favourite gfcf menu coz it's quite hard to get a delicious gfcf food lol! I think my tongue is already polluted with years of MSG and condiments consumption, such great is the pollution that healthy food and raw food is tasteless in my tongue lol!

Resurrection Sunday

  
This Sunday, our sunday school celebrated Resurrection day with parent n child game: buttoning race.... yeay! We're switching roles... mommy's time to get DS help to button her blouse...lol

A hymn that fills my heart on this special Sunday:

 "Because He Lives"
God sent His son, they called Him Jesus
He came to love, heal and forgive
He lived and died to buy my pardon
An empty grave is there to prove my savior lives
Because He lives, I can face tomorrow
Because He lives, all fear is gone
Because I know He holds the future
And life is worth the living, just because He lives

How sweet to hold a newborn baby
And feel the pride and joy He gives
But greater still the calm assurance
This child can face uncertain day,
because He lives
Because He lives, I can face tomorrow
Because He lives, all fear is gone
Because I know He holds the future
And life is worth the living, just because He lives

And then one day, I'll cross the river
I'll fight life's final war with pain
And then, as death gives way to victory
I'll see the lights of glory and I'll know He reigns
Because He lives, I can face tomorrow
Because He lives, all fear is gone
Because I know He holds the future
And life is worth the living, just because He lives

Blessed by this passages too during parents share group:

Psalm 46:1
God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.

My refuge and my strength in times of trouble is Your Word. The trouble itself is a way to see Your goodness and Your help. Sometimes when my focus goes wrong, the trouble seems bigger and it causes me overwhelmed and exhausted, but.....as I read this... reminds me how You are bigger than my problems!

Rome 5:6-9
6 You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good person someone might possibly dare to die. But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

Since we have now been justified by his blood, how much more shall we be saved from God’s wrath through him

[emphasis added]

I Light It Up Blue #LIUB

#LIUB

Everyone who is joining this BLUE movement  is showing their support for Autism.
April is Autism Awareness month and 2nd April is Autism Day celebrated world wide.
I know this post is published late, since I have no time blogging every day...but I am glad to be part of the movement too.
I think autism is just a normal condition of a child who is still finding his way out from his shell, and one day he'll get out of that shell! A cocoon state....expecting a beautiful butterfly to emerge! yeay!

Cheers in BLUE light from Jakarta!
