Bible Reflection - love

Love is patient, love is kind.
It is not jealous, love is not pompous,
it is not inflated, it is not rude,
it does not seek its own interests,
it is not quick-tempered, it does not brood over injury,
it does not rejoice over wrongdoing
but rejoices with the truth.
It bears all things, believes all things,
hopes all things, endures all things.

This quote honestly covers all things that I am flawed with and in the process of reaching it ... Though hard
But I realize I always have my friends n love ones who will subtly teach me Ho to love too ...

Bible reflection - one body of Christ

Today I was sitting at the bus stop reflecting the bible n what interesting thing I saw or would he want to tell me

I took this picture signifying the road in which made my pathway

I had a friend who said she want to quit now.. and compensation $10,000 and whao I am shocked... No not by the money but well by the fact that I tot I was bad... but some people are not handling it well either. All the more I must thank God for all the support n friends that I have in my life who supported me ...

Bible reflection - communion with Christ

"This is my Body that is for you.
Do this in remembrance of me."
I am in communion with God n for all he has done ... Today I was so blessed to have Paul n Carmen come over to my hall and chat w me ... We chat till late but I miss them both a lot ... Just when I tot my day was bad I guess hers was also alot worse than me but I guess she indeed felt better ...

Bible reflection - do to others what u want others do to u.

Do to others as you would have them do to you.
Simple few words but Difficult task
Today was talking to Darren and he was saying I had social awareness n self awareness ... That made me ponder .. What did he mean ?

Sometimes people outside see u better than u see yaself... Well he meant that I was able to although talk n converse with a person but at the same time notice n be aware of my surrounding n care for others n not let them b left out

Guess I cultivated this personality Coz I too hope not to be left out in conversation n chat. N I also hope people would take notice of me n my reaction / existence when I am w them.

I was surprise at what he said... But well in this school he is indeed one of the closer friends I had despite me knowing CSA for only a few weeks but his friendliness n openness to share with me was a very pleasant surprise to me.

Bible Reflection - CSA reflection

This very day was weird coz it was my first time playing for Mass and i feel so awkward and my hands were freezing. But later on in mass I felt warmer coz I could feel him trying to warm me with his spirit.

I went for mass and than back to hall there after the time with God begins
Today is the discernment cum bonding day ...

We started with getting to know u and then praise and worship ... Gosh it is so long since I had it.

We reflected on John 15:1-17
After which Don asked us to reflect on these few questions.

1) Why do I want to join CSA n ExCo?
2) What is my greatest fear ?
3) What struck me in the passage of John

1) Why do I want to join CSA n ExCo?
I want to grow deeper in my faith. Nick has always been talking about this special place he has been and so has Colin too. I would like to serve here.
I miss God and the times we has together in 2009/2010 when I was in NIE as an AED.
I would like to have a group of friends in this school who would share this faith with me.
Certainly I wish to play for mass n improve for HIM.

2) What is my greatest fear ?
Would there be periods of dryness
That I might get distracted n overcommitted that I loose focus in studies.
Will I be able to get along with this group of friends

3) What struck me in the passage of John?
"you are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you."
"Remain in my love." - seems like he is telling me not to go away...
He has called me and I have responded. He is so faithful it I am so unfaithful and instead he has made me his "gurl.... Friend ."
He has also said "love each other" and I am starting to learn to love them . New friends

Bible reflection - God is with us

Today's is the feast of the nativity of the blessed virgin Mary and in the gospel reading talks about Jesus birth and he is to be called Emmanuel which means God is with us.

In the same way as I reflect on the readings I realize that God is actually with me throughout this journey as I discern for the Exco. He knows me thru n thru that I am not the kind who would rally and ask for votes n he just places the position in my face. With the little angels n his helpers , ask me to join the NIE rep.

Well today is another day of discernment, and I truly love the time spent with him. In praise and worship.

I was actually wondering why in the world I was suppose to go to the camp coz it was for the 9 22nd ExCo to discern but well after I am here I guess the time here was wonderful I am really happy to have the company of them and praising and worshipping together . And of coz we had to share why we are here ... What motivates us ... After rehearing my motivation n theirs I feel that being here was great ...

Bible Reflection - How do you want to serve ?

Last time God spoke to me and asked me if I am ready to serve him? This time in the reflection of the readings, he too asked me ... HOw do I want to serve him ? I really am shocked at the readings and how it is realting to what I am having in mind.

In the 1st reading, it spoke of St Paul being the preacher loved by all.. but all this came not by his knowledge but by the Spirit who gives him wisdom and knowledge and even courage to speak. I guess I am too weak as I do not know how to do the speech and I am lost at what should I say... but after reading this, I feel more calm and I know He is with me and with the holy spirit.. he will guide me and put words on my lips...

Similarly in the gospel Jesus mention how he has set the captives free and help the blind see.. this is where HE was asking me .. how do I really want to serve? I do not know but I guess letting the spirit guide me... I would love very much to help support the group in a stronger way in terms of their spirituality - NIE rap , Playing piano , etc ... I guess I am indeed leaving it up to HIM. Certainly, this run for the Exco was a shock and a unexpected one.. if it is HIS will, let it be done onto me.
