Hey There Li'l Red - Halloween 2013

MySnS Enchanted (Dark) Forest Edition - Completed.

Where everything from the office decorations to our costumes have been pretty much last minute.

We've only started preparing the second floor hallway (our side of the office), a day before the event. Feeling "left out", it was only after lunch that we decided to join the Halloween "merriment" and bought several materials to use (a deliberate contrast to the decorations upstairs - yes, dark forest was our theme version haha). We'd say the result was pretty much awesome - given the lack of time and budget we have. Woot! :D

Love Poem

I came to know the first few lines of this poem from one of the romantic novels I read when I was in high school. Or maybe it was an excerpt from a letter my friend gave me back then. Now I'm not really sure - but either way I love this poem.

Love by Roy Croft

I love you
Not only for what you are,
But for what I am
When I am with you.

I love you,
Not only for what
You have made of yourself,
But for what
You are making of me.

I love you
For the part of me
That you bring out;

I love you
For putting your hand
Into my heaped-up heart
And passing over
All the foolish, weak things
That you can't help
Dimly seeing there,

And for drawing out
Into the light
All the beautiful belongings
That no one else had looked
Quite far enough to find

I love you because you
Are helping me to make
Of the lumber of my life
Not a tavern
But a temple.

Out of the works
Of my every day
Not a reproach
But a song.

I love you
Because you have done
More than any creed
Could have done
To make me good.
And more than any fate
Could have done
To make me happy.

You have done it
Without a touch,
Without a word,
Without a sign.

You have done it
By being yourself.
Perhaps that is what
Being a friend means,
After all.

Yes, a throwback picture of me and the boyfie - we're best friends after all! :)

Work. Pray. Love.

"How did it get so late so soon?" - Dr. Seuss

How true. Imagine we're already on the second brr-month, next thing we know its Christmas!

And it was an extreme busy work week for me - lotsa meetings and presentations. But we did it! We survived! Thank You Lord that all the hard work did not go unnoticed. Yikeeeee! :)

23 Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters. 24 since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.

Colossians 3:23-24
