Lewis, The Problem of Pain Pain is essential in the growth and maturity of a Christian. Are you hurting right now? Praise God for He is doing something to refine you.

Investing on Eternal Things

A few weeks ago, I’ve been meditating on a quote by C.S. Lewis in his book, Four Loves. He said that all that is not eternal is eternally useless.  All that is not eternal is eternally out of date. Ever since I became a Christian, I have always believed that my life here on earth is temporary. I also believe that everything in this world will be destroyed by fire. So I must set my […]

Required Reading: June

For the past 6 months, finishing a single book has been a chore for me. I’m not sure if I’m just really distracted or I’m having this so-called reader’s block. Goodreads even said that I’m seven books behind my reading goal. So now, I’m challenging myself to finish these books in my currently-reading list: The Book of Lost Things by John Conolly The Imitation of Christ by Thomas Kempis Quiet by Susan Cain The City and the City

Who Needs to Read 600+ Books in her Lifetime Anyway?

I started this blog three years ago because I want to keep a record of my thoughts on the books I’ve read. As I’ve expected back then, I know I won’t be posting regularly because I’m a reader and not a writer. But then again, 38 blog post is not bad at all. So after almost a semester of not writing anything, I’m back again to say that please expect some major changes in by book […]

So today is the birth of my new blog

One thing that I’m sure I’m not really good at is keeping my lengthy thoughts in writing. As I’ve mentioned in my introduction page, this is not the first time that I’ve set up a blog. My 3-year old book blog has not been regularly updated simply because I’m too lazy to write my thoughts on my recent reads. However, my mind is so full of thoughts lately on the magnificence and the greatness of God that I […]

Attachments

Well, what should I say? I’m glad my office crush is not an IT guy or else I’m doomed. Okay, I really don’t know how to start with my review because I still can’t get over with all the kilig I felt after finishing the book. Perhaps, I should start with this warning:Never use your company email for telling personal stuff (specially your office crush) to your friends at work for some cute IT guy, who also […]

Cupidity

  Dear Lord, I praise and thank you for guarding my heart all these years. I thank you that you have not allowed me to get into a wrong kind of relationship and commit more acts of Cupidity. You’ve told me once that I was made for romance, and the only one who can offer it to me consistently and deeply is your son, Jesus. So as I patiently wait for that pleasing and perfect […]
