Returned from Paris and the Netherlands

I felt like I would  never want to go back to Paris again.  Then I thought of the Musee d'Orsay and all the paintings in there that I have yet to see, and my heart feels a bit lighter.  Next, the thought of exploring and enjoying Paris with the Ogden Gang makes me feel almost inspired. 

Of all the places I've travelled to, Nieuvliet has been one of the most enchanting.  I definitely want to visit Oosterburg again to see the other villages besides Sluis.  Seeing "ai-ya" auntie and Aunt Jing and her husband again was a very heart-warming experience. I still, however, feel sory for not having met Uncle Liang for a second time before he passed away last year.  Visiting his gravesite was a bittersweet experience that I cannot as yet find words to express. 

I now look forward to visiting Zurich and revisiting the Ermitage at Arlesheim. 

Numerous times has my temper and patince been tested.  And every time, if it were not for the worship music that I carry with me everywhere I go, I would have lost my mind, and probably my respectability.  I listened to Pastor Smith's sermon on Being Judgemental and Critical again today, and what I got out of it is: forgive others, lest my resentment build up walls that block my path towards Christ. Amen.

I am sorry Paris was such a blah... I am sure it will be better next time!

As for patience, I don't know how I would do it... would probably blow up big time. :)
