Simple, Free and Easy

Posted by Dawn at Monday, September 15, 2014
Many are sucked into the world's thinking that something is good only if you pay more for it or you work really hard for it. And if it is free, you better avoid it or be cautious because there must be something wrong with it. It is similar to the Good News. In the Bible, Jesus says, "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." (John 3:16)

Jesus says that in order to have eternal life, you just need to believe! You do not need to go all out, strive and do lots of stuff to obtain anything. It is a gift that only needs someone to receive it. That is why many are hesitant to receive it, thinking only the worst of it. Thoughts like, "How can it be so easy?" or "What will happen to me if I receive it? I'd rather remain in my comfort zone where I am in control"

Anyway, I am mentioning this is not only to get you thinking (Well, that's what my blog is all about- metacognition simply means thinking about thinking), but to tell you that there are wonderful things in life that are free. I am glad my husband believes in that too and because of that, we bring our children to places to enjoy where it is not only free but fun! It can be as simple and fun as taking a ride to the nearest beach or going supermarketing together as a family!



Recently, we went to Gardens by the Bay to soak in the atmosphere of the Mid-Autumn Festival. Usually for Mid-Autumn Festivals, we would go down our block where lots of children will gather to light their lanterns and sparklers. CT suggested we do something different this year and I am so glad we went. I took a train with the children to the Gardens to meet CT there. It's always an adventure to sit trains and buses with my children. Love it!

My wacky boy who brings me joy

The weather was perfect and the children were so infectiously excited.

 
 

It was a beautiful and pleasant night with the family as we went up the sky bridge (figured we should at least go up once to see what it is like)




 
 
It was nice and windy up at the bridge. Great view of everything with the full moon in the sky.
 
There were also food stalls set up in the Gardens to celebrate this festival. Of course, we just walked by as I feel its overpriced Pasar Malam (Night Market) food.


The Gardens is so spacious that I did not feel that it was that crowded. Here are more pictures of the beautiful lanterns and scenery that night..






We ended our night by walking through the love bridge with lots of colourful hearts! Very beautiful..




Thank God for my wonderful hubby and children! May His love overflow through us so that we can be a family that radiates Christ's love and blesses others with His love!
