Day 14: Prayer

(North East Utah)
 

“Worship the Lord your God, and his blessings will be on your food and water. I will take away sickness from among you, and none will miscarry or be barren in your land. I will give you a full life span.”
                                       – Exodus 23:25-26

Day 13: Wisdom

(Manila, Utah)

My child, don’t lose sight of common sense and discernment.
   Hang on to them,
for they will refresh your soul.


                                    – Prov. 3:21

Day 9: View

(view from the Weeping trail: Zion National Park, Utah)

“So from now on we regard no one from a worldly point of view. Though we once regarded Christ in this way, we do so no longer”.
                                          – 2 Cor. 5:16                                                              

Day 7: Signs

(Zion National Park, Utah)


Moses was given a task by God. And He gave him proof and signs to perform. God showed Moses what to do to let the Israelites go out of Egypt. With a promise in Exodus 3:12… And God said, “I will be with you. And this will be the sign to you that it is I who have sent you. When you have brought the people out of Egypt, you will worship God on this mountain.” 

Day 4: Accomplish

(Monticello, Utah)


“Now all glory to God, who is able, through His mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.”                                                                                   
                                            – Eph. 3:20

“You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives”
                                            – Gen. 50:20

Day 1: Dream

When you look at this view, you can’t ignore the beauty of God’s workmanship. It’s just relaxing and inviting. You can daydream all you want. This was taken in Park City, Utah during the time when we just want to unwind. We were at the “lowest point of our lives” in the US but here we were, being welcomed by a butler, ushered to our suite with two fireplaces, wine and cheese, tv in one of the two baths. It was just awesome! We were pampered at St. Regis Deer Valley. 

“Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine…” Eph. 3:20-21

 

I’m Back!

After hibernating for about two years, our blog site has now resurrected! I will be inviting my kids & husband to contribute from time to time. It has always been my goal to update this site but I don’t know what happened. I will just backtrack from the time I stopped just like in the movies.

So to start anew and since it’s the love month, I’d like to touch on one of the 5 love languages – Quality Time. As a family, we love going out and spending time with or without plans. Spending quality time is really a must for our family. We make sure that even if our weekdays are full with individual schedules, our weekends definitely are always busy (I figured out now why I have tons of chores every Monday).

Last week was one of those outdoor fun activities we had. We went to Ogden to see their Winterfest Activities. We’ve learned that they brought tons of snow (460 large dump trucks) from different areas such as Hinckley Airport and paved them up along the 25th street for the event. This was their 2nd year hosting the event and about 12,000 spectators went in the two-day event.

We spent more than 4 hours and we had so much fun. There were too many activities that we don’t know which one to go to. We spent more time with the sled and ski and was distracted by the food booth that’s why we missed the skijoring competition. Skijoring is a winter sport where a person on skis is pulled by a horse.

We started off with watching the Toboggan (Sled) Parade mostly by sponsors. One of them is Coca Cola, thus we have this photo of the Coca Cola Polar Bear.

Then, sledding. Notice how high was the starting point. It’s as high as the traffic light.

We took the opportunity to try cross country skiing with skis, poles and shoes provided by Weber State University.

There were many activities happening simultaneously like snowmobile racing, polar bear swim event, flag football competition. Other activities include junior jazz basketball, 5K run, ski-bike race, live music, dog show, human dog sled race. Plus the many booths that served yummy food. We tried Hawaiian chicken barbecue, pulled pork sandwich, the very popular ribbon fries with cheese and a big buffalo burger.

After the event we went home exhausted but happy. We’re glad we went to Ogden that day.
