We were talking early this morning and I told him what I realised the day before: There's just so many things to be thankful for! He smiled in agreement. I know it's too early for a NYE post but I can't help but be amazed between where I was exactly one year ago and now. GOD has been faithful to His promises. Whether you are up on a hill or in the valley, remember GOD has a story too beautiful than you ever imagined. It may not make sense now but trust Him.


In the spirit of savoring the remaining summer weekends, we decided to spend the last week of September at Peak District. The place is about 2.5 hours from Northwich by car. It was still sunny but you can feel the chills are creeping in! Chilly or not, the place is picturesque. It is breathtaking! Everywhere I looked, I was blown away by nature in all its glory.

The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Psalm 19:1

Place is a haven for mountain climbers and nature lovers alike. Everywhere you look there's green and then there's blue. I thought: if only people will take time to appreciate nature and go outdoors; Have real face to face conversation and eat mindfully; what great difference does that make? You see, humans are social being, and social media lured us into believing that we are socialising when we're not. Nothing beats the good old fashioned real life connection.

As we were traversing the lofty hillside roads, it felt that these two hills will cover us and swallow us alive (pardon my overly stretched imagination). We stopped by a local pub that served us a warm steak and vegetables to complement. As if it's not enough, we drove 10 minutes more and found ourselves ordering a soya mocha coffee and coffee walnut cake at a nearby pastry shop. There's no denying our blood type is Coffee A+. Teehee!

We spent a good portion of Sunday at Peak District. It's a very welcoming disconnect from our usual office world. Though, I have to be honest, I'm more of a city girl, really. However, that does not mean I like outdoors less. Nature has this calming effect on me. It feels like God constantly reminds me that if He made all these grandiose, self-sustaining sky, hills and lush grass, He has the super powers I need to get through life because - get this - HE is BIG ENOUGH to take care of me... of all of us. -CMK

    I agree with you. In our ups and downs, do not forget God. Cause he always remembers us. :D
