Nice pictures


Sitting by the beach ,
Watching the sun rise beyond the horizon,
hearing the waves crashing unto shore, as the tides get higher.
I listen as the birds leave their nest in search for food,
I recall the wonderful time I use to spend at the beach
and the times i use spent with the lord reflecting and thinking and even how he has been by my side.

I just watch as the view just captures me as if a little girl now back into palm of his hands. Being embrace in him, being in his love. He made everything big and small , even the very fiber of my being ... He knows me so thru and thru ... And for me , he came and died for me , each time I hurt him , I am hanging him back up on that cross. Each time I judge someone , it would hurt him so much coz that person is a creation of his too ....

“Stop judging, that you may not be judged.
For as you judge, so will you be judged,
and the measure with which you measure will be measured out to you.
Why do you notice the splinter in your brother’s eye,
but do not perceive the wooden beam in your own eye? "

I know school is starting , I am tired of running alone, feeling of lost without him everyday... I don like that feeling, I will give this last 6 months a last sprint and see where he will lead me...I'll walk with u lord , I trust u and let u lead me where ever u want me to.

Mass

Attended mass today , it was special v nice to have been able to attend mass n talk to him pouring our my prob n listening to his word. Best of all to b able to know he is there when I go for communion.

At first I was kinda dreading to b alone but I started to really enjoy it.

I felt the homily by father yim was light hearted n today being the feast of Holy Trinity .... He asked how would someone describe the trinity if they were asked ? Who do u say the trinity is? 3 person but 1 god?? Or recite the whole creed For someone who doesn't know him? Nah... U will just confuse them more...The holy trinity is love ... Nothing else can better describe the trinity but love.

No matter what sorrows we have , what shame we endure, just lay it down at their feet. Your sickness , your pain trade it for the joy of the lord ... For they are love and with all suffering they will be there. Though sorrow may come but they last a while once we ask for their love and compassion

I felt so much lighter so loved and so much lifted ...

Movie review

Sun WuKong Episode 1 - Human Living

It was talking about how A Monkey was born thru a stone thru special powers and his seeking in life for something greater. When his foster parents past on he was looking for something that would help him attain eternal life. What about us? do we ourselves sometimes search for eternal life too?

So on he went into the world and he starts to learn about life as human being and his teacher asked him one day what he has learnt from his years in the mortal world - he starts by saying he realized that people do not do things at the correct place and time and what they are told to do, people with no money yearns to be rich, those who have money yearn for status and fame, those who have status and fame wants to have power and rule, and those who have fame and power yearns to become king of this world. Others even splurge money on alcohol , play and womanizing.

However there are people who are good, but they don't seem happy coz they are constantly worrying about the live ahead, about their kids and about their future and the uncertainty and when they become of age, the fear of dying, and when they die, all the fame, glory and status cannot go with them into the coffin.

Being Monkey he is rather smart and i love this childhood story all the time coz it has always been an educational show for me.

5 love language

5 Love languages For teenagers

Recently , while shopping , i chanced upon a book called Love Languages by Gary Chapman.

It speaks of a real and happening situation in our lives at this point in time. From the recent events of teen killing teens, parents or even committing suicide and even a high rate of teenage pregnancy , abortion or even Sexually transmitted diseases . Violence have also been v often seen in newspaper articles and news reports of teens possessing fire arms.

At the root of much teenage behavior is a teens empty love tank. It is not suggesting that parents do not love their children but rather children nowadays do not feel that love. It is not a matter of sincerity, but rather the lack of information on how to communicate love to one another on a more emotional level.

A part of the problem is due to the lack of love being felt by parents themselves. Either because their marriage has been sabotaged or the lack of emotional love flowing freely from mom - dad.

Just like god who love christ so much that he sent the holy spirit who is love to us so that we may encounter LOVE ... But why is it that nowadays it is not like what is suppose to be btw spouse? What has changed ? What went wrong ?

In the next few post, I will continue to review and talk about this book that I have read ! Slowly unfolding the mystery of the love language to teenagers

Happy Birthday June Jie

This very day would be the birthday of one of my beloved cousins... June & it is ever so nice to have her by my side as i was growing up. I remembered when I was young, she takes care of me when we play in my aunty's house. I used to play "catching" & "Ghost" with our neighbours and she would look out for me. I would never forget the times we went to the zoo, played "doctor" together & even outings.

Sometimes in life we do wish we could grow up faster ... but many times i wish i could just stay as a young girl & be pampered by these lovely people God has given me. I recall many of my friends ever telling me... "hey this is so cool, you get to go out with your cousins" I never really gave it much tot till recently when someone reminded me of how lucky i was & how family should love one another.

Talking about love... the 1st thing about Loving someone is not to be Judging against another. My family has always been the place where it provided me with warmth & love. Whatever happens to me , they never judge & when i get my certs , many people in society would just say "PAPER CHASE" but to them , they are always so proud of me & what i have achieve.

On this special Day I just want to thank this lovely cousin for all that she has done for me & all the wonderful laughter & times we we share. May god continue to bless you in whatever you do with Love, Joy & Peace.

Have u ever wondered to urself ... When u have done something wrong to your Gf or bf and u ask for forgiveness ... But the twist is that u say sorry to a voice mail or even a toy he or she bought u! U didnt hear from him or her if they actually forgive u and if your apology is even accepted at all. How do u feel ?

Surely it doesn't feel good coz u will Nv feel forgiven right ? Coz U Nv Heard if u are forgiven and u still feel guilty for what u have done and this guilt is still in u right?

For the Father himself loves you, because you have loved me
and have come to believe that I came from God. Ask and you will receive.

I guess one thing that came to my mind would be to go for reconciliation. I have remembered many encounters with non Christians and Protestant is the resiliance to go for confession W a priest...

When u have done something wrong to ur love one, u would certAinly want to have his or her forgiveness N the same goes for confession.
But I guess if u really think about It... Confession is actually not tt bad after all... It is simply an act of confessing and apologizing to the one you love and having to hear that u are forgiven ..

When u have apologiZed u would want the one u love to say "it's k my dear , u are forgiven ! I still love u so much ! " and it's that same act of words that is uttered to u from god thru the priest .

So than confession is not that bad after All right ? Than why hesitate ... go on if you need to reconcile with your creator & Lover !!!

Subject: Miracle in Egypt

A Muslim man in Egypt killed his wife and then buried her with their infant baby and 8-year old daughter. The girls? were buried alive!

He then reported to the police that an uncle killed the kids. 15 days later, another family member died. When they went to bury him, they found the 2 little girls under the sand - ALIVE!

The country is outraged over the incident, and the man will be executed.

The older girl was asked how she had survived. "A man wearing shiny white clothes, with bleeding wounds in his hands, came every day to feed us. He woke up my mom so she could nurse my sister," she said.

She was interviewed on Egyptian national TV, by a veiled Muslim woman news anchor. She said on public TV, "This was none other than Jesus, because nobody else does things like this!"

Muslims believe Isa (Jesus) would do this, but the wounds mean He really was crucified, and it's clear also that He is alive! But, it's also clear that the child could not make up a story like this, and there is no way these children could have survived without a true miracle. Muslim leaders are going to have a hard time to figure out what? to do with this, and the popularity of the movie Passion doesn't help!

With Egypt at the centre of the media and education in the Middle East, you can be sure this story will spread. Christ is still turning the world upside down!

Please let this story be shared. The Lord says, "I will bless the person who puts his trust in me." Jeremiah 17:7.
