Prayer for the President of the Republic of China and all in Civil Authority

O Lord our Governor, whose glory is in all the world: We commend this nation to your merciful care, that, being guided by your Providence, we may dwell secure in your peace. Grant to the President of the Republic of China, the Governor of this country, and to all in authority, wisdom and strength to know and to do your will. Fill them with the love of truth and righteousness, and make them ever mindful of their calling to serve this people in your fear; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, world without end. Amen.
(Adapted from BCP, page 820)

治理我們的主啊!祢的榮耀充滿世界:我們將這個國家交付在祢慈悲的眷顧之下,這樣,我們得蒙祢的恩佑引領,就能在祢所賜的祥和中安然居住。求祢賞賜智慧和力量,給中華民國總統和所有執政掌權的人,使他們認識並遵行祢的旨意,心中充滿對真理與公義的熱愛。又使他們永遠記得自己的使命,以敬畏祢的心為民服務;這都是靠著我們的主耶穌基督,聖子和聖父、聖靈,一同永生,一同掌權,惟一上帝,永世無盡。阿們。
(取自 中文公禱書 684頁)

月之圓缺

#2020-0109

昨夜身體不適,前往附近的亞大醫院急診,直到凌晨一點半之後,才離院返家。琴一路相伴;當我躺在那兒打點滴時,見她掩不住睏倦與擔心,仍時刻陪在身邊,我的 ❤️ 啊.........

心裡感謝主!今日「放空」大半天之後,傍晚時分,我們依然能夠攜手同行。慢慢地,我們走向附近的「民主議政園區」;抬頭一瞧,見一輪明月高懸天際。琴說,今天是農曆臘月十五 ---- 「喔!難怪月亮這麼圓!真是圓滿、浪漫!」我欣喜地應和著。

我的 ❤️ 稱頌主!此生有知己者同住同行。(琴是我知音!)

A Collection of Photos

#2020-0107

Just pictures! ... (純照片)

Trees and the shade of them! -- They're in the sun ... (陽光與樹蔭)

A small animal with a long furry tail was seen on the trunk of a tall tree this afternoon. (今日下午的貴客?---- 或主人?)

喜見花開

#20200102

那天 ---- 根據相片檔的內容資料,那是去年 11 月 13 日 ---- 我好驚喜,發現台北「聖約翰座堂」的茶樹開花了,就用手機拍下這三張照片 (See the first three photos)。

今天,我再次驚訝,發現住家附近「阿罩霧公園」裡,有一棵我不知名稱的樹,好像特別愛開花,竟然又開了好多好多 (See the photos following the first three)。

重點是,明天我和老婆又要北上,到台北去...........;總之,去看兒孫,就好比(或更勝於)瞥見那正要綻放的,令人驚嘆的一朵朵 flowers。

Thanks and Prayer, 2020

#2020-0101

At the very beginning of 2020, I'd like to give my sincere thanks to the Lord, who has granted me so much in my life. For example:

(1) My good friends including many of my former schoolmates, my former colleagues, and those who are close to me at present;
(2) My loving parents and parents-in-law (I've recently visited my two mama's again!) -- Though my father and my father-in-law passed away several years ago, I still think of them often;
(3) My own family: my better half Jean, my son Antony and his wife Anita, and my grandchildren Little Bee and Little Shine;
(4) And also other people who have been related to us one way or another!

May the Lord bless them (and you!) so that everybody will be even more healthy, wealthy, and happy in this year, 2020. Amen.

岳母九十歲生日快樂 (A Birthday Party)

#2019-1228

Happy birthday to you, mom.
Happy birthday to you, grandma.
Happy birthday to you, great grandma.

My mother-in-law is ninety years old. All the family members (and some relatives, especially her sister who is, in the right photo, sitting beside her) came to her birthday party, except just a few who live faraway and had to work today.

I'd earnestly pray for my mother-in-law: May the Lord continue to bless her day and night -- now and forever!
