Losing Something, Gaining Perspective

Posted by Dawn Lau on

But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. Matthew 6:20-21 Although everyone loves the cool Hong Kong winters, they should come with...

Hope Deferred

Posted by Dawn Lau on

Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life. Proverbs 13:12 I recently went on a “Stillness” Retreat organised by a good friend of mine. She had the thought to bless a group of her female friends by gathering them on one dedicated afternoon at...

The Process of Change

Posted by Dawn Lau on
