God has indeed been faithful to me and I thank Him that although its been a tough 2011 for me, I have managed to overcome the many challenges and obstacles that came across my path. Thank God for the favour of men because I am indeed blessed to be where I am now and to be whom I’m meant to be. I thank God for my parents whom have always been supportive of all that I do. I thank God for Baby because she has taught me to love wholeheartedly and to give unconditionally. There are just so many endless things that I want to thank God for that it would take me ages to type this whole blog entry.

Well, I may not know how you [yes, you, the person reading this blog entry] are feeling right now. I may not know the troubles and challenges that you might be encountering or facing right now. But take heart that these trials are just temporary and are meant to shape your character and destiny. We all have a choice in life to be successful. We either choose to succeed or we choose to fail. But I pray that you will have the wisdom to make the right decision to choose to succeed in life! When life isn’t a bed of roses, remember Who wore the thorns. Jesus suffered for us so that we would never have too much to bear.

I like this quote by Helen Keller, “Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, vision cleared, ambition inspired, and success achieved.” and I pray that you too will be inspired.

Before I end off this last entry for the year, many of you must be wondering what presents I have received from Baby and what presents have I gotten for Baby during Christmas.

Well, I received tons of presents from Baby

A Hand-Made Card which she really spent lots of efforts on

In fact, Baby gotten more presents for me than I gotten for her. So, I’m extremely grateful and thankful for her thoughtful gifts and yes, I am indeed blessed and loved!

Well, as for the present which I gave to Baby, I specially created a photo album of the times we spent together in 2011. Its really nothing compared to the many presents that she have given to me. What you’re seeing is just a snapshot of the album. I got the whole album printed by Fotohub and the results were just fabulous. The quality is somewhat similar to those of wedding albums!

From Christmas 2011

But more than just receiving gifts after gifts, the best gift that I have received this year is Baby herself. I know your hairs must be standing on its ends right now, but truly, the best gift to give and receive is love, not luxurious material goods. So make this a priority for the year 2012, to choose to love the people closest to you.

Happy Holidays Everyone~!
