The “Taste and See” Project

Posted on

You know what they say. You can’t just read the bible. You have to chew on it and take it in, make it part of you.

“O TASTE AND SEE THE GOODNESS OF THE LORD” (Ps 34:8)

That inspired this project I did for my CHEWsday cell-group– one of a kind bookmarks with their favourite bible verses to make studying a bit more interesting and encouraging.

So what’s for breakfast this CHEWsday?

Some toasted bread:

With some fragrant tea:

What kind of tea? I can only say it’s a truly unique blend! And you can steep it in water over and over again and still have fragrant tea.

And since it’s a bookmark, you could steep it in your book and drink knowledge infused with the Word of God. It just so happens that I think “The House at Pooh Corner” is a really happy book to drink in. Pooh is just so adorable, and we could all learn from him. His logic, for one, is exceptional:

“Pooh looked at his two paws. He knew that one of them was right, and he knew that when you had decided which one of them was the right, then the other one was the left, but he never could remember how to begin.” (from Tigger is Unbounced)

OK, I shouldn’t be reading Pooh now. I was just flipping to tell you why Pooh is cool. It’s cool that rhymes.

TIME interview snippet with Mother Teresa

Interviewer: You feel you have no special qualities?

Mother Teresa: I don’t think so. I don’t claim anything of the work. It is his work. I am like a little pencil in his hand. That is all. He does the thinking. He does the writing. The pencil has nothing to do with it. The pencil has only to be allowed to be used. In human terms, the success of our work should not have happened, no

If I could wake up early, I would love to wake up to the rising sun, a house bathed in a golden glow, and Peter Rabbit and his friend  🙂 I woke up early on thursday, admittedly because I had school, and spent a good 10 minutes being trigger happy 😀

Whisked away on a wishing-chair

Posted on

My younger days were spent reading Enid Blyton books, among books by Roald Dahl and fairytale classics. In one of her books, The Adventures of the Wishing-chair, Mollie and Peter enter into a shop to buy a vase for their mother. The shopkeeper is not very friendly, and ignores them. The other person in the shop (whom they suspect may be a wizard) demands to know why they’re in the shop! Afraid, Mollie and Peter huddle up in a chair, wishing they could go home. The chair, of course, turns out to be a wishing-chair and does exactly as they wish!

Mollie and Peter later go on to meet pixies and wizards in all sorts of adventures. Likewise for me, reading books is very much like going on adventures into places one hasn’t gone before. And what else could be a better companion than a wishing-chair?  🙂

To make my wishing-chair bookmark, I pasted storybook paper (scanned of course) on some cardstock and cut it out using an art knife. I added a red tassel because the wishing chair sometimes grew red wings. Voila! Now I just have to find time to read 😀
