Why I No Longer Consider Myself a Hardcore Environmentalist

Okay, before you make any violent reaction, let me tell you first that I still do believe that we should take care of the environment. First, because it is a God-given mandate to all human beings to be stewards of God’s creation. And second, because the state of our environment can really affect the state of our well-being. Last Friday, I attended a meeting and was glad to see my former officemate there. We used to work together in […]

I’m Keeping You at Arm’s Length

I’m keeping you at arm’s length Because it’s the right thing to do, Because I believe it’s not yet the appointed time. I’m not even sure if I’m making the right judgment. I’m keeping you at arm’s length Because I don’t want things to get messy. Closer means risky and risk unguarded can lead to disaster. I’m keeping you at arm’s length Because I’m busy, I’m busy trying to get my life together And keep […]

Day 20. Describe your most difficult breakup and what you learned from it

As someone who’s NBSB (no boyfriend since birth), I don’t think I can say much about this topic. But for the sake of finishing this challenge (my gosh Cary, it’s so long overdue!!), let me try again. As earlier said, break up is a foreign experience to me. I think the closest thing to break up that I’ve experienced was when I learned that ex-office crush and I will no longer be officemates. I was […]

Will I Ever Fall for a Beast?

So yesterday, I finally gave in to the hype and watched the classic Beauty and the Beast. I love the story of Beauty and the Beast because it teaches us the lesson of not looking in the outer appearance to see the worth and beauty of a person but to look for the beauty within. Stories like Beauty and the Beast and The Little Prince, where the famous line “what is essential is invisible to the eyes” came from, are just examples of the tools […]

Day 18. If you could have a conversation with yourself in high school, what would you say?

This question is quite related to my previous post in my letter to my past, present and future self. My previous letter was addressed to my 15-year old self. I was in 4th year high school back then. So for this challenge, let me go back a year earlier to have a conversation with my 14-year old self in my 3rd year in high school. I actually don’t know what to say to my younger self because […]

Wild Flower

Listened to this song again after some long, long time. I used to love this song for its melody but now I love it for its lyrics. Wildflower Lyrics (Skylark) She’s faced the hardest times you could imagine And many times her eyes fought back the tears And when her youthful world was about to fall in Each time her slender shoulders bore the weight of all her fears And a sorrow no one hears […]

Crossroad

I feel like I’m in a crossroad nowadays. I have a feeling there will be great changes coming in the next few days  or even months both in my personal ministry and personal life, and I believe these will all happen in the coming year -2017. Yes, I am feeling hopeful and excited about the coming new year but at the same time, I’m a bit scared of what might happen in the next 12 […]

Week 9: 10 Things I Want to Accomplish

Aaaand yay! We’re down to our last two entries, can you believe that?! This is the hardest post I have to write so far because right now, I’m not really sure of the things that I want to accomplish in my life. It’s not that I don’t have any dream at all. It’s just that the things that I want to achieve before no longer matter to me now. I know I’ve also mentioned it […]

Some Announcement

Since I’m trying to streamline my activities to give more time for my ministry and work of the Lord and because I don’t think I’ll have more time for writing book reviews, I’m putting this blog on a hiatus. I’m also thinking of merging this book blog with my personal blog so I decided to keep this blog inactive until I finally have the courage to let this blog go. For the meantime, you can […]
