Journey to the past...

Anastasia is a 1997 film shown in cinemas. This story talks about a little girl - now grown up - going to search for her identity ... a show i watched when i was in Primary 6 ... the 1st show i watch w YuQing, Sarah Jane & Mel... at Hougang Plaza ... One of the best films I have watched in my life.

In the busi-ness of your time, have you recently stop to take a little stock check? Listening back to a music video of one of my all time favourite song just made me stop and I just cant help it but be reminded of how my relationship has been with God, how he has looked after me & guided me in many times of my life when I was at my lowest & how he has held me up on his wings just take care of me ... just 1 step at a time, one road than another. He did not ask me to fly but slowly walking with me through life...& hearing the lyrics as it speaks to me just a gentle reminder of how much he wants me back in his arms, to be able love me and care for me if only i would allow him to.

I may not have the same amount of time i have as before to be spend with him but on and off he nv fails to show me his presence thru the people around me, my friends , family & love ones. Just as the lyrics says, HOME , LOVE, FAMILY... there was once I must have had them too.. why wait for it to be "was" when what i have in front of me is a wonderful family ... & why not treasure them all. Anastasia also sings of how life is full of choices , no one ever mentions Fear, or how the world can seem so vast when you are just embraced in the presence of God.

The more i reflect, the more i type the more i realise how much i missed being embraced by HIM, just sitting in the adoration room , being in his love. What about you ? How have life been for you ? How has your journey to the past been?

Backstabbed !!!

Which is your fav colour?

Which colour in the power ranger team is your favourite? Pink, Yellow, blue, red, black, white, gold or green. As you may have guessed , mine is Pink... Looking at this Megazord reminds me of the times when i was young , sitting in front of the TV every Saturday 11am, just simply tuning in to the show without fail. How we children would be crazy about their costumes and sword. Some would even name ourselves after these character & even purchase their weapons from various retail stores. Crazy as it seems to adults but these are kids who simply look up to their "idols" because it makes them look "powerful" & "strong" just being like them.

Many of you have heard of this word "backstab" often used and some may have actually experienced it for his / herself. How does it feel? Not good at all i believe.... you feel Pain, betrayed & anger.

In my life, the people and characteristic i hate most & I use the word hate is "backstabbers." The top 3 Characters includes, 1) Dishonesty 2) Backstabbers 3) Disrespect. But why the sudden talk about this topic some may say. Well that's because i have just found out that someone whom i tot i could trust has just *took a toy knife & stab me from behind*

Why the pun? This is said intentionally with this pun because they believe that all things could be said and taken with a pinch of salt. At times even neglecting the feelings of others. Hence the analogy similar to that of a TOY Sword handled by kids to be waved and "poked" into people thinking that it would not hurt.

Many a times in life we are like these kids, we wave our sword around freely thinking that it is alright, wagging our tongues around is an OK thing. Before the words drops out from our lips, have you ever considered the feelings of the person you are talking about? How has these conversation help to build the community? Is that what we Catholics are called to do? Is this what our Leaders in our ministry, teachers, our parents taught us - tearing people down, backstabbing, gossiping and spreading false accusations of another?

In actual fact, these heros do not backstab. They do not tear people down. Neither do they wave their swords or "show case" it in front of people. They are "powerful" and "strong" and they put it to good use - Helping others in school, they fight to save the world and build community, when someone is left out, befriending them.

Since these are our heros, than why than has things changed when we grow older? Have these values imparted by these heros been lost? What about our Christian Values? Have they too been lost?

Though I was hurt, Though I was fuming and disappointed, i didn't know why I kept my cool. Still able to handle myself. I tot i would have jumped & flipped, but rather I stopped & said a little pray ending off with " father help me forgive them, for they know not what they do"
