1 January 2016, Friday, a very significant day to begin the new year. With the kids staying over at a relative’s place, my sweetie and I couldn’t wait to roll out the plan for our couple time.
First on our list was to shop for the groceries for the week. In the blink of an eye, we hopped into the car and drove off to the Round Market excitedly. Pulling into a parking space upon arrival at our destination, my eyes were drawn to the parking space number: 333 — a familiar bible verse suddenly surged forth in my mind — “Call to me and I will answer you, and will tell you great and hidden things that you have not known” (Jeremiah 33:3). A timely reminder to begin the year with prayer to my Lord for directions that set the pathway to adventure and blessings for others and me. Then without much delay after grabbing the needed groceries, we headed off to our favourite haunt to revel in food savoury in each other’s company. What a conviviality with my beloved convive! By the way, I have just locked this blissful moment into my memory locket.
