Forgive but not Forgotten

As the calendar year is ending, Christmas is approaching. Streets and buildings are beginning to light up. Christmas jingles are starting to ring in our heads. All the troubles may appear to be far away. Hearts are getting ready to dive into celebration after celebration. There will be gatherings and parties that most of us…

Come to Me and I will give you Rest

A long-overdue post. As a Chinese celebrating the Chinese Lunar New Year, it is a privilege that feels like we can have a second chance to take time to reflect on the previous year, to make some resolutions for the new year or reset some things in life. It may sound almost boastful about how…

Child of God

1 John 3:1a ESV “See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are.” What kind of Love is this? 1 Corinthians 13:1-8a tells us the Way of Love “If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have…

Living the Life we have chosen

Deuteronomy 30:15-20 (ESV) 15 “See, I have set before you today life and good, death and evil. 16 If you obey the commandments of the Lord your God[a] that I command you today, by loving the Lord your God, by walking in his ways, and by keeping his commandments and his statutes and his rules,[b]…

The End of the World

Why does the sun go on shining? Why does the sea rush to shore? Don’t they know it’s the end of the world ‘Cause you don’t love me anymore? Why do the birds go on singing? Why do the stars glow above? Don’t they know it’s the end of the world It ended when I…

Ignorance is bliss?

Living in a world filled with confusion, we are often easily consumed by noises dictated by our needs and desires. Even to the same information we are given or same situation we go through together, different people see, feel, and translate it differently. There were a few incidents that occurred over the last two busy weekends…

The Promise of Spring

“The promise of spring’s arrival is enough to get anyone through the bitter winter!”~Jen Selinsky I’ve never quite been through the whole season of winter. Maybe only a taste of it-I have seen drizzles of snowflakes at the end of fall and brave through some strong winds at the start of spring. From the little…

How deep the Father’s Love for us

So, yet another love story unfolded and I was moved to tears. However, alongside, a whole lot of many other emotions emerged. From some kind of affiliation, to anger, to disgust. This left me completely exhausted in my own world once again. We are suppose to know about death, to know death. Our belief is…

Sibling

Technically, I have many siblings according to Wikipedia-each of two or more children or offspring having one or both parents in common; a brother or sister. My parents were divorced, both remarried and have their own children. I also learned that my dad has another son, not from both his marriages, somewhere out there. The…
