A Loan From God

“he who trusts in his riches will fall,

but the righteous will flourish like foliage.”

proverbs 11:28

we come into life with empty hands – and it is with empty hands that we leave it. actually we can possess nothing – no property and no person – along the way. it is God who owns everything, and we are but stewards of His property during the brief time we are on earth. everything that we see about us that we count as our possessions only comprises a loan from God.

– billy graham

peace with God

i must confess that i have been too ignorant to His presence these past couple of days. somehow busyness pulls me into a zone where i have to focus and forget about sadness and loss. it’s because the busyness that draws me away from God as well. i’m hoping this week will fly by quickly…that eventually i will have time to sit and be still…completely still.

what i’m thankful for:

– the busyness to keep my mind occupied

– the rain that cools things down

– the a-team movie

– a new korean friend

– time to spend with people

– the realization that there may never be tomorrow for some of us…and it’s best to make the most out of the present and nurture the friendship we have with people

– my dear friend who passed away, kru chum, who brought me back to bangkok to remember the fond memories with tae kwon do people…and actually had a little reunion at his funeral…such an ironic circumstance…but if it weren’t for him, how would i get to meet the people i didn’t know i’d so missed

– the anticipated shower and sleep

…yea…it’s definite time to go to sleep. adios, world.

p.s. i know that these past couple of days, i have had no mind to blog. and i ask you to put up with me for a little longer. i’m sure there will be a day, soon, i will get over with the sadness…for i know that there are many other people out there who suffer great deal of loss even more than i do…and i shouldn’t complain. but for the sake of a precious life, i can’t just let it pass by like nothing had happened. yet God has reminded me that there are still others who love and care for me…and they shouldn’t become victims of my sorrow. thank you for lifting me up in prayer. i’ll be better, i promise.
