Jo and May were making dumplings this morning, they didn't want me around. So, I went out to make my round, enjoy morning fresh air and talk to God. A man on the other side of sidewalk called out to me. We both moved to the center of safety island. We shaked hands and said hallo. Ha! A vietnamese and a Taiwanese met in Goodyear Arizona by chance. He came from Wisconsin to visit his niece, I came from New York to visit my daughter. We chatted for about 10 minutes and then continued our morning exercise in opposite direction. I thank God for this chance to meet Tuo (He said, "one two, Tuo").
Yes, I know. It's Christmas season, we are celebrating birth of Jesus. But, without Christ's death on cross, it's just an ordinary birthday party. Let's remember God's love and salvation: "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life."(John 3:16) Let's celebrate Christ birthday as Merry Christmas, not just a happy holiday.

We left New York City yesterday morning with snow on the ground temperature about 25F and headed for the dessert warm Phoenix, Arizona. Our plane captain announced that we would arrive at Phoenix a few minutes earlier than scheduled. He also said Phoenix was raining about 55F. I heard someone said it's the first rain in 4 months in Phoenix area. Mmh, we brought the rain?! We enjoyed our morning walk amist thick fog this morning in Goodyear, AZ. Then, we went out shopping. The sun tried to peek through thick cloudy sky.
Your list of Country Code: A2: TW A3: TWN No. 158 Country: Taiwan, province of China (Incorrect) Taiwan is an independent country. It should be listed as Taiwan, definitely, NOT a province of China. Please correct this error. Thank you.
After a long telephone conversation with my friend in Taiwan, I kept thinking about my old university classmates. Therefore, I tried to look for something that would refresh my mind. I found this note in my old diary. It was attached to a Christmas gift on December 24, 1961. I saved it because the writer of this note wrote a reminder to me. It is very similar to the English verse "Casting all your cares unto the Lord for He cares for you." Yes. Our Lord cares for you and me all these years and will continue to care for us.
Chen Shu-Ju, a vegetable seller, in Taitung, Taiwan, has been honored by Time Magazine for her generosity to education and charity.

陳樹菊是台灣台東中央市場女菜販。美國《時代》雜誌將其選入2010年最具影響力時代百大人物之「英雄」項目第八位。她也是早先《富比世》雜誌所選出的2010年48位亞洲慈善英雄人物之一。 她多年來共捐出了近1000萬新台幣來作為慈善用途，幫助兒童和孤兒，以及建立圖書館等。 Her generousty reminds me the story of a widow's offering. Jesus said, "...that poor widow has given more than all those ... , while she gave up her last penny." (The Bible Mark 12: 41-44)
