Bonding with my son's family ( Part 2)

This is how we crossed the road in Hanoi, Vietnam, hold hands together and slowly walk and crossed the road. It was scary, imagined motorbikes just passed all directions but my son told me to just close my eyes so I will not feel nervous which I did. lol!
Motorbikes are common as their means of transportation there in Vietnam. So that is why highways are flooded with motorbikes and very scary to those who are new in that place to cross the streets because the drivers just passed all directions. It seems they just go straight at you. You can see all kinds of people riding on motorbikes, some of them are well dressed women with high heels. Both my son and my daughter in law has a motorbike on their own to go to there working places. Cars are minimal because only the very rich can afford to buy as it is very expensive. So that is why they used motorbikes instead as their services in order to reach their destination on time. Buses and taxis are their public transportation only, you can also see many bicycles roaming around to those less privileged people.

You see lots of motorbikes in the background of this picture.

Whew! motorbikes are used transporting appliances like in this picture and also bulky ones like refrigerator as my son's family have witness. I just can't imagine how they do it, but that is!

Well, my next post will be a little bit a "culture shock" to you......

Bonding with my son's family ( Part 1)


My Eldest and only son's family in Vietnam.
With my 2 cutie grandkids. Thea is 9 years old a 3rd grader and Rinnah is still in her Nursery class. They are into homeschooling only because International School in Vietnam is very expensive.

What a Gift!


Ephesians 2:8 " For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith -- and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God."

Grace is far more than God's kindness or favor. It means God touches our lives with His strong, compassionate hand giving us what we do not deserve, cannot even earn, or never, otherwise, could have. Grace is love and stoops and rescues.And it is this that we are constantly in need of. He magnificently lavishes it upon us, forgiving us, cleansing us, and bringing us into His family. Jesus commitment to truth is loving and completely honest. He did us a great favor, showing that God's grace cancels out our debt and brings forgiveness and healing. Yes, thanks God for His grace and truth---- all part of the marvelous gift of Christmas God gave long ago.

Oh! I am back....

Yes, I was absent from the blogsphere because I went to Thailand and Vietnam to visit my children there.. I will be posting my travelogue later on.

I arrived one week ago but I've rested because I was really tired. My knee was a little bit painful, having coughs and colds due maybe at the airports which was very cold and was able to slept thrice waiting for my flights.

But now, Praise God! I am feeling well.

See you soon......
