Today being the first day of the Lunar New Year, I thought I’d have the title of my post in Chinese. Heh. For my non-Chinese readers, it means, “The Tans wish everyone Happy Lunar New Year!”
Happy New Year!
Noah was a little overwhelmed by the hordes of relatives he met at my grandma’s place, so we had to leave after a while. I wish I had more time to catch up with my cousins though. Oh well, there’s always next year!
One of my cousins shared a lovely biblical interpretation of Chinese New Year blessings and proverbs with me and I thought I’d share it with all of you too.

万事如意 Rom 8:28 In all things God works together for the good of those who love Him

事业有成 Jer 29:11 God knows the plans for us to prosper us and give us a future and a hope
