I didn't get to check the mail today.
But there is a letter for me on the study table.
It's a tiny envelope.
With Cornell's logo on it.
It's a rejection letter.
But it's okay because I have a God who's bigger than Cornell :)
I found one of my favorite children books. On the first page, I wrote with my very best handwriting - To: Jessica From: Fat Chet Date: May 1, 1997 :)
Ya, I like using smiley faces since I was 9 :)
And referred to Papa Loke as Fat Chet because he bought me a book during Labor Day 1997.
Reading it now, I realize there is so many lessons I missed as a kid. It's a simple book with size 16 font but it still teaches me new things now as I go through it. Just like how everyday God reveals new ideas and thoughts to His people through the Bible.
One of my favorite poems in the book -
A Shepherd Song
What does a shepherd feed his lamb?
Good green grass or gooseberry jam?
What does a shepherd tell his sheep?
"Stay up all night" or"Go to sleep"?
What does a shepherd like to say?
"Find it yourself," or "I'll show you the way"?
What does a shepherd like to do?
He likes to whisper, "I love you."
