Our adorable angel


Joram truly brings to our family much joy with his adorable antics. Even when he throws a tantrum, his response to our efforts to handle him is simply so cute. There are many laugh-till-our-eyes-tear situations and here's one hilarious moment.

I was hugging both my girls who were sitting on my right and left during lunchtime. Joram saw it and became jealous. He started crying saying that he desperately wanted me to hug him too. Since I was sandwiched at the wall seats, I couldn't move over to the dear boy sitting opposite me. Joshua and his older brother, seated beside, attempted to appease him by offering to do the hugging instead but to no avail. He even refused the "remote" hug from me (yes, we invented such a thing in our family) and continued sobbing miserably as if there's no consolation. Finally, Joshua told him, "Your oreo cheesecake is coming soon!"

The moment he heard that, his face lit up and he started look around with his eyes big as saucers. His reaction was so immediate and the change so drastic that the whole family burst into mad laughter. Ah, my dear Joram, may you always remain so endearing to us.

Joram's 1st Spiritual Birthday


A year ago, Joram accepted Jesus into his heart. Today, he celebrates his very first spiritual birthday with his second sister, whose day of salvation falls on the same date albeit 3 years earlier. 

Ever since he realised his need for God in his life, he has shown a growing awareness of his own sinfulness. This can only come from the keen understanding of the holiness of God and His perfect standard of love. It is beautiful seeing him sing praises the God while he looks out of the window everyday. He also said that he wants to love others as God loves him just as commanded in the bible. 

May his love for people grow as it overflows from the love he experiences with Jesus, His Lord and Savior!
