Haven



Many people talk about New Year resolutions.

What I reckon is more important than a bunch of resolution is to realise and appreciate that the sun is still where it should be. We take things for granted these day. May it be our health or our loved ones.

Last night a 68 year old man spent his new year's eve fighting for his life on the OT table, having stranger's hands inside him cutting into his tissues trying to repair his ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm (or AAA). While his wife sitting anxiously in the waiting room with tears on her face. Perhaps that was the longest 4 hours of her life. And for him time stood still.

It made me think about what really matters in the coming of this new year.

It's all about appreciating what belongs to us. What is ours right here, right now... this moment. And the fact that all of those are actually 'loaned' to us by God. And He can take them all away in one single moment if He wants to.

Having said all those... hearing goodfriend's laughter in the living room and seeing sweetie-pie sitting at the kitchen table enjoying her choco spread with a smile on her face. Now that would be my haven.

Life. Carpe diem.

But godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it. But if we have food and clothing, we will be content with that.

1Tim 6:6-8
