Family Fellowship (chinese and english)

每当我要到我房间时,或者在路途中(比如在巴士上等等),我都会想起我的HYP,在想下一步该如何进行。我又遇到问题了,有许多办法可以解决的,但是必须要在这些办法里选出一个最好的一个,最有利的一个,要考虑许多方面的。愿我主继续的带领我。

今天我们教会在若兰姐妹的家有个家庭聚会,一点到两点是聚餐,两点到四点是分享以及代祷。我们四个人当中只有敦义和我去,敦廉早上有canoeing,不知道几时才结束(后来知道了,是一点多下午),立智有project meeting(可惜leader不是她,以前我做leader的时候,我从来不在周末有meeting的)。大家弟兄姐妹都带了些食物来与大家分享,添得大家肚子都好饱哦!

福利弟兄领唱后,若兰姐妹为大家分享了在马太9:1-2,路加5:18-20以及马可2:1-5。这些都是关于同一件事,就是主耶稣医治了一个瘸腿的。她所分享的重点乃是我们各人的布道,有否为主传主的福音呢?

从这件事里(主耶稣医治了一个瘸腿的),我们先不看那瘸腿的,要看那些帮这瘸腿的人到耶稣面前。他们有极大的爱心和信心,相信这瘸腿的是他们认识的(若不认识,那么他们的爱心更大),他们可能为这瘸腿的寻遍名医,但始终找不到。到后来听到消息主耶稣能医病,他们充满了信心,相信耶稣能医这位瘸腿的,就带他来到耶稣所在的地方。但是他们遇到个难题,就是屋子都满了人,水泄不通。若他们的爱心和信心不大,他们就会带这位瘸腿的回家,跟他说声对不起,他们已经尽力了。可是他们爱心和信心都很大,他们没有商议,就爬上屋顶,拆了,把那瘸腿的放在耶稣面前。第一,屋子不是他们的,屋主可能会他们赔钱。第二,他们没有进过屋子,怎么知道耶稣在哪里呢?他们得一个一个的拆那屋顶,花费了多少精力和劳力。第三,抬那瘸腿的不是一件容易的事,那瘸腿所躺的褥不是轻的,而且我们相信那瘸腿不是个小孩子。想想他们要把他抬到耶稣所在,爬上屋顶,又要慢慢小心翼翼地把那瘸腿的平安降落在耶稣面前,是一件非常极难的事情。一个不小心可要了他的命。没有极大信心和爱心,他们是如何办得到呢?

我们想想我们自己,若我们周围未信主的亲戚朋友比喻成那瘸腿的,我们身为他们的朋友会否像这些愿意把那瘸腿的带到耶稣面前的人一样,愿意带他们到主的面前呢?愿意传主的福音给他们呢?愿我们都能够被这分享被提醒,愿意地靠主来向我们周围的亲戚朋友传主的福音。他们信不信主耶稣,接受不接受救恩,是主的恩典与他们的,我们只管行主的旨意,传主的福音给他们,让他们在这世上有机会听到这完美的福音。

好了,我得要睡了。若我不早睡,明天就必载morning service的时候睡觉了。哈哈哈。以下是上几段的英文翻译。

Our passage of sharing today during our family fellowship: Matthew 9:12, Luke 5:18-20 and Mark 2:1-5. All these are based on one story that Jesus heals a paralytic. The main focus of the sharing by Sister Geok Lan is on the gospel.

From this story, we are not focusing on that paralyzed man, but the men who brings him to Jesus. I can tell that they have a great love for this paralyzed man and great faith in Jesus Christ can heal this man. We believe this paralyzed man is their friend (if not, then their love for this man is even greater) and they would have taken all their time and trouble to look for a doctor who can heal this paralyzed man. Once they heard of Jesus Christ and how Jesus has healed the sick. They then have faith in that Jesus Christ is the one who can heal this paralyzed man. Therefore, they bring this paralyzed man to where Jesus is. (They could have taken the trouble to look for the whereabout of Jesus). However, they met a big problem. The scripture told us that there is a crowd in the house and they have no way to bring the paralyzed man in.

Without great love and great faith, they could have bring this paralyzed man back to his home, apologize to him, tell him that they have tried their best, just that he is unlucky. But no, their great love for this man and great faith that Jesus is the only one who can heal this paralyzed man prevents them from losing heart. Without any discussion on what's the plan, they all go up to the roof and make an opening and lower the paralyzed man down. Point 1, this house is not theirs, they could be charged for making an opening in the roof. Point 2, they have never been to the house, thus they need to spend great amount of effort and time to find Jesus in the house. Point 3, carrying the paralyzed man is not an easy task. We assume that the paralyzed man is not a children. The mattress that he is lying on is not light at all too. So imagine they have to carry him all the way to the house Jesus in, climbed up to the roof and the process of lowering him down to in front of Jesus. Guess how much effort or energy have these men put. One wrong step will cause this paralyzed man to lose his life (imagine fall off the mattress during all these trips). So from these points, we can see, without the great love and great faith these men possessed, there is no way they can succeed in putting the paralyzed man in front of Jesus.

Think of ourselves now. Imagine all your friends and relatives who have not believe in Christ are the paralyzed man in this story. Are you one of those who possess the great love for the paralyzed man and great faith in Jesus Christ, who willing to sacrifice yourselves, to get the paralyzed man healed? Are you willing to spread gospel to them? Or bring them to church? May we be reminded by this sharing, willing to stand for our Lord, spread the gospel to all our friends and relatives who are non-believers. It is God's grace that they believe in Christ and receive the salvation, our job is to spread the gospel to them, so that they, too, have the chance or opportunity to hear about the gospel in this world, when they are still living.

That's all. Haha, good night.

A small step (chinese and english)

太好了,我的HYP终于看到一点点的成功了。好高兴,虽然花了一个小时多在debugging(简单来说,就是找出问题,然后解决掉那问题的一个过程)。感谢赞美我主我的神。

我们是一小组做一个program的,所以我们有一个大家可以把自己的进展输入在一个统一的地方,然后其他人都能够分享,明白吗?不明白不用紧。看看你明白我以下英文的解释。

We have this centralised place on the Internet, that we can put our parts of the program in it, such that anyone who has access to that place, can download and use. For example one of my friends do some updates on his work, then upload to that central place. Then I can download his work and use it in my work. Haha... and I have installed this TortoiseSVN that allows me to keep track to the contents in that central place. Very convenient. It's free by the way, so you just need to google for it.

I have a folder that dedicates to this tiddlycard server (the name of our central place), so if I didn't make any changes, fresh update from the server, I will have a green tick beside the folder, else (I make some changes after updating), it shows a red exclamation mark.

CLEAN folder
DIRTY folder
I have not seen the green tick for quite a long time, because I made some changes (while I doing my work). Although I do update everytime, but because my stuff still different from the server, thus I always have that red exclamation mark, till I finally commit today and thus having the green tick (yes, finally!).

You may ask why I only commit today? This is because previously I wasn't able to make something work, haha... and only till today a small step. Haha... well a lot more things to do for my project though... much to be expected and here comes the red exclamation mark. Haha...

今天只有早上一堂tutorial,然后就没课了。我在房间里很努力地复习刚才老师所提的答案(因为我不会做,所以只好抄答案),唉,我忙着抄答案,忘了听老师在说什么,所以复习时,遇到一些“不通”的地方。原来老师说了算了,哈哈,我又没听,当然落到这样的情况。幸亏敦义有听课(虽然他也是不会做,但是他有听老师在说什么),解答了我那问题。哈哈。

然后三点钟,敦义和我去听一个talk,关于OpenSolaris,挺陌生的一个OS,所以就去探听探听。可惜talk后没有茶点,哈哈。听了所以然罢了,没什么大不了,那讲员说了一些他的经验,如何作出一个Linux的distribution叫Debian,然后参加了Sun Microsystem Inc.公司,引起了公司里的工人疑惑(因为Sun Microsystem公司不是用Linux的,所以非常好奇一个Linux的人跑了进来),终于他向他们解释:“因为这样~,所以那样~”。

过后我们便搭Shuttle Bus回到PGP,继续做我们的功课。好了,没什么事情了,但愿主继续的保守我们,使我们在世上能够行主的旨意,远离罪恶以及一切的引诱。叫一切荣耀称赞都归于神。

HYP stuck again... (chinese)

又浪费了一个宝贵的晚上。为什么这么说呢?因为我花在想我的HYP,每天都只是在想的阶段。想什么?想如何的去实行,英文叫做Implementation。想了好久总是拿不到答案,或者肯定地下个定论,或决定。总是优柔寡断,这样做不是办法,那样做又太复杂了,真是不知如何是好。所以我都说我在浪费时间当我去做我的HYP的时候。

这个星期六又有个TiddlyCard meeting,我们每个人都要呈现我们的进展。看来我这次似乎又要空手而去了。若我是空手回天家,那就更惨了。

上一次我的HYP也无法进展,那是停顿在策划阶段。现在是停顿在实行阶段,应该要做些东西出来了,但是我依然什么都没有,因为真的是不会做,真头痛。老师不断问我,进展如何?我也不知如何回答他,就说我真在寻找答案,接着就像诉苦一样,说那部分真难。那老师只是点头,说,我们找个时间谈谈。好厉害的一句话,我也听了高兴因为我曾经也是这样突破那策划阶段。但是这次meeting,两个老师提出了各种各样的方法来了解我的project,提议许多有趣,有理的方法,试着解答我的难题,但是我的难题是我对javascript不是很熟,依然遇到许多的困难当我再implement的时候。老师们的办法其实不难了解,只是implement他们的方法实在不容易,就如好听的音乐是不容易吹的(我是吹口琴的)。他们方法容易了解,但是就是不容易implement。

好吧,很晚了,我要去睡了。算术题tutorial8还没做完的(因为不会作),明天就要讨论了。一切我都不能做主,因为我的生命都完全交托在我的主,我的神里。幸亏我有这全能的主的带领引导,不如我早已崩溃,气馁,放弃了。感谢主我的神,唯有您是那配得我们歌颂赞美的神!叫一切荣耀都归于您!

In CS3212 T1 Class (chinese)

现在正在我所作Tutor的module课里,那老师正在解释如何做Assignment 8。一些学生是与我同期的,一些是我的学弟学妹,看着他们拿这个module,实在是可怜他们。我曾经拿过这科(不如我怎么做这科的Tutor呢?只是教授不一样),不是很好玩。每个星期有programming功课,弄得我非常的不喜欢programming,把我曾经说过的话--“programming挺好玩!”硬硬地吃下去,哈哈。(那时我还没拿这个module)

快要12点了,哇,老师没停过。我来这里的目的是要看看有什么我可以在我做老师的那天(每个星期五,两点到四点),知道要教什么。奇怪,怎么那么多东西好讲,好象变成recitation了。哈哈。好惨,难道我也要这么教么?哈哈。幸亏他们的lecture在星期四,所以老师应该那时又对他们解释了吧?下个Assignment应该是关于一个我最怕的,simPL VM heap。哈哈,我自己不是很会的,哈哈。

星期日那天,教会聚会后,我们(显有,敦廉,敦义,立智,我)到Paya Lebar MRT附近的一个咖啡厅,Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf去喝茶。敦义和我只叫了个Banana Chocolate的Ice-blended drink,其他的有叫什么latte,tiramisu,raspberry cake,etc。我们看到好多人在里面,享受着空调,做功课。一些人是一个人霸两张桌子,一些是一群人,Coffee Bean虽然价钱昂贵,但是依然好生意嘛!哈哈。我们五人围绕这一张叫桌子,但感谢主那桌子足够让我们放我们的食物。哈哈。

课完了,我也该回家了。再见。

One SaTuRdAy (chinese)

今天从早上到晚上都在电脑室里。我感谢我主带领我和我弟弟今天能完成我们的CS4272 assignment 2。上个星期六,我们也是这样做完我们的MA2222 assignment。非常感谢我的主的领导,没有他的指引以及智慧,我们是没有办法做完这些功课的。

躲在电脑室里就发现时间好快地过去。本来第一眼看时是十二点钟正午,下一眼便是五点傍晚了,但我还道是两点钟罢了。我还有一个小考在Oct 19, 还没开始复习,哈哈,先做完功课。

明天一早要早起床,准备去教会。哈哈。一个星期又这样过去了,每天我都在思考自己是否有没有好好利用我的时间,有没有珍惜时间,把多少时间献给主?把多少时间花在自己的利益上?把多少时间给浪费掉了?但是我把我的一切都完全交托给主,因他比我自己更知道什么对我好,什么对我不好。哪有父亲给自己儿女辣椒,当他儿女求苹果?哪有父亲不给自己儿女最好的?我们的天父是不会阻挠一切对我们好的发生在我们身上。

有一点我要感谢主的是我终于对我的那Honours Year Project有一点的头绪了。概念弄清楚后,就要到实行了,英文叫Implementation。那不是个简单的事情。还得多多依靠我主的带领。我也感谢主,敦义对他的HYP,也如我,有头绪了。哈哈。

还有许多还未了的事,譬如不断为我爸爸祷告,因为他还没信主。盼望他能够乘恩典门还没关时,接受这神为全世界的人预备的救恩;为教会祷告,不断站立持守主的话语,对主的信心不要起落不定,要时时坚固,不动摇。求主继续地看顾保守你自己的儿女,叫我们都要为主在世上做美好的见证,荣耀称赞都归于我们主,我们的神。唯有您是那值得,配得歌颂赞美的神。从来没有其他神在世上能够与您比较。
