Yeah, I know it is after Christmas already, but I couldn’t resist posting this very cute video of the Christmas Story.  Check it out!

Hi, I’m finally back on Love’s Rest, and it’s Christmas Day!  Happy birthday Jesus!

I just got back to the Seattle area, after being in Iceland for 2.5 months, and in Taiwan for 1.5 weeks.  It has been an amazing autumn for me, so action-packed, that I wasn’t able to post freshies here for a while.  Now I am glad to be back in the US to celebrate the holidays, and hopefully I can return to regularly filling this site with devotional goodies.

You can read my Iceland and Taiwan travel log at my main ministry website, www.lightamp.net

Below is a neat photo I took in Reykjavik, Iceland.  Blessings to you on this day and in 2011.

Night in Reykjavik

journey into His rest

Just this week, I realized that it has already been one year since I launched Love’s Rest (last December), and I have to say that this devotional website has grown and progressed beyond my imagination.  Praise God!

I started Love’s Rest out of an idea God had given me, and now, after 100+ posts and over 5,000 visitors, I am grateful that God birthed this site and used it to bless so many people worldwide!

(and He is continuing to touch lives through it each day)

I remember, last year, it was during an epic two-week periods of snow flurries and cold weather here in the Seattle area, when I was stuck and trapped in my old apartment (with my car buried in the parking lot), and I couldn’t go out to fellowship with friends for Christmas, that the Father drew me into a deeper, more intimate relationship with Him.

And during those days, after hours of  soaking and worshipping, I was prompted by the Holy Spirit to go to wordpress.com, and the dream of Love’s Rest became a reality.

Thank you Daddy God, for your amazing love, for all that you are, and all that you’ve done.  And may the knowledge of You be spread all over the earth, as the waters cover the sea.  I know I have been transformed by You as well, in creating, maintaining, and cultivating this website.  Thank You for what You are doing in me and through me.  Amen.

I have much more fresh contents in store this new year for Love’s Rest, so get ready to go deeper in the Lord!

Come to me,
all you who labor
and are heavy laden,
and I will give you rest.

Matt 11:28
