and his name is...



it has been an amazing journey so far, and i believe what we have experienced till today is but a foretaste of what is to come. God's timing is always perfect, and we tightly cling on to this fact. by faith, all will fall in place! 

planning for a new home, and preparing for a new member of the family, can be more than overwhelming at times. how true it is, that "It is of the LORD'S mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not." Lamentations 3: 22.

With the edd being 1st of January (this can only be planned by God!) we are constantly reminded by the promise that ATWOSLU - All the Way Our Saviour Leads Us! and He doeth all things well. progress is well for our new home, by God's grace. oh, such exciting stuff! i was telling my sister that day that this feels like a gigantic craft project, hehe! more importantly, i do look forward to moving in with PP and baby E, to build a new home, our own family :) 


thank God especially, for people who support us so much, in acts of love, prayer and sincere questions of concern. these blessings are another reminder that God is with us, through you :) 

and so, as the countdown gets lower, thank God we have decided on the name of our son. (feels surreal, saying the word, our son)

Ezra. /ˈezrə/

name of hebrew origin, meaning "helped", or "helper"

How we pray that our dear son will find his help in God, and be a helper greatly used by God! more importantly, that he will love God and His word. "For Ezra had prepared his heart to seek the law of the LORD, and to do it, and to teach in Israel statutes and judgments." Ezra 7:10



Surely, our role in achieving this is crucial. may God help us! we covet your prayers! 

side note: amidst our busyness, we found time for a little photoshoot for memorial's sake :) the lovely photos in this blog post are by Blocmemoire Photography, an amazing couple whom we really enjoyed working with!

an absolutely amazing journey we have been through, and surely far from being perfect. but as we look at our son's name, we pray that our hearts will also be PREPARED by the Lord to SEEK Him, DO His will and to TEACH our son the ways of God. Hoping that in turn, he may do likewise in God's time.

The Lord does provide the right people into our lives, and thank God for the husband&wife team from blocmemoire to help capture these wonderful moments! :)

Thank God that in all its beauty, sweetness, and creativity overflowing out of the photo shoot, it reminds us all of the wonder and glory of God, to give thanks to Him, and bring His children up in the fear and knowledge of Him. (:
