I want to take this opportunity to wish all of my friends, family, church community, blog readers, and the larger community a very Happy New Year!
As some of you know, today [Monday, January 26] is the celebration of the Lunar New Year. As we begin Year 4707 today - the Year of the Ox, Minhee and I extend heartfelt blessings to you and yours not simply so that we languish in our own blessedness but are compelled to live lives of blessing unto others and the glory of Christ.
Lunar New Year isn’t just Chinese New Year. Many of the Asian nations including Korea celebrate the Lunar New Year – Seollal [in Korean]. This is a very significant day for us.
While I’m currently enjoying my experience in South Africa, I am missing Minhee and the kids so much and wish I could be there to mark this day with them. Thankfully, my parents are with them and I’m sure they are partyin’ it up.
The picture above [from last year's New Year] is a pic of Minhee and me in our traditional Korean clothes. Let’s be honest here: Minhee looks great but dang, I look hot in those pink pants. We be Korean drama stars.
