Happy New Year 2010!!

This is the sight that greeted us on the eve of  the new decade!  Who would ever have thought we would be in Malaysia for the New Year, but it turns out that Malaysia is only a 2 and a half hour... surprisingly inexpensive flight from Hong Kong.

The photo is courtesy of our oldest son... after a whole year of not seeing them, our oldest two college-aged "boys" flew to Hong Kong to join their parents and youngest brother for Christmas.  We promptly exposed them to our new culinary habits (fried fast-food squid)

We introduced them to some of the flora and flauna of our new continent:

(don't worry, the Malaysian sun bear was confined to a zoo)
We enjoyed some lazy hours of sun & swimming;
Mango juice and Asian curries...

And wondering what the New Year will bring.

By the word of the LORD the heavens were made, their starry host by the breath of his mouth. 
He gathers the waters of the sea into jars; he puts the deep into storehouses.
From heaven the LORD looks down and sees all humankind, from his dwelling place he watches all who live on earth -- 
he who forms the hearts of all, who considers everything they do.

We wait in hope for the LORD; he is our help and our shield.
In him our hearts rejoice, for we trust in his holy name.

May your unfailing love be with us, LORD, even as we put our hope in you.  -- Psalm 33
