Chinese New Year 2009

29 01 2009

Its the usual tea giving ceremony for our family again, as it has been every Chinese New Year.  the children show us their respect by giving us tea and a blessing and we give them an ang pow with a blessing as well.  This year, I took the blessings from 2 portions of the Bible, one from Num 6:24-26 and the other, extracts from Deut 28.

Andrea wanted to be the first, so this year, we allowed a reversal by allowing the youngest to start
