Treasure Today

Good Day, Beautiful People.

My mate shared this with me:

SOME DAY & ONE DAY

 _A friend of mine opened his wife’s wardrobe and picked up a silk paper wrapped package._

“This,” he said, “isn’t any ordinary package.”_

_He unwrapped the box and stared at both the silk paper and the box and silk satin dresses inside._

_”She got this the first time we went to New York , 8 or 9 years ago. She has never put it on , was saving it for a special occasion. Well, I guess this is it.”_He got near the bed and placed the gift box next to the other clothing he was taking to the funeral house, his wife had just died.__He turned to me and said, “never save something for a ‘special occasion’. Every day in your life is a *’Special occasion'”*_

_I still think those words changed my life.__Now I read more and clean less.__I sit on the porch without worrying about anything.__I spend more time with my family, and less at work._*_I understood that life should be a source of experience to be lived up to, not survived through._*

_I no longer keep anything._

_I use crystal glasses every day.__I’ll wear new clothes to go to the supermarket, if I feel like it._*_I don’t save my special perfume for special occasions, I use it whenever I want to._*_The words *’Someday….’ and ‘ One Day…’*are fading away from my dictionary.__If it’s worth seeing, listening or doing, I want to see, listen or do it now._

_I don’t know what my friend’s wife would have done if she knew she wouldn’t be there the next morning, this nobody can tell.__*Each day, each hour, each minute, is special.*_

_Live for today, for tomorrow is promised to no-one.__If you’re too busy to send this out to other people and you say to yourself that you will send it ‘LATER remember that LATER might never come…

You may or may not read this message before. If you did, may it serve as a kind reminder.

Life is too short for you not to treasure everyday. Be presence wherever you are. If we strife, we will never be happy, joyful and content. Look at what you have and been given, enjoy before it is all gone or too late.

Art of Resting [Art de repos; Arte di Riposo; Arte de descansar; 休息的艺术]

  
Good Day, Beautiful People!

Sorry for not writing in as much as before.  Sometime life throws you a curve ball, you need to respond wisely. The need arise cause me to take a short sabbatical and chill. 

In our modern days, busy lifestyle, rest is the last thing we have in mind for most of us unless you’re retirees or in between jobs  or force to rest at home. 

Depends on your personality, I certainly find myself in the space that I have to labour to rest. My body is forced to rest to restore to good health. 

  
Learn to rest in the fullness of His Grace. 

Learn to sleep well and take cat nap.

Learn to declare and claim His Promises of health and wholeness.

Learn to relax and chill with good praise music, podcasts and books. 

Learn to be patient during the wait. Do constructive and productive thing like reading or encouraging someone while waiting. 

Learn not to get annoyed looking at things need to be done and yet unable to be done at the time frame.

Learn to receive help is pretty humbling experience. Especially you treasure your independence ability to do most stuff on your own.

Learn to be grateful in small things, in daily progress, in true friends that lean in and care. 

Learn to surround yourself with joy and happiness whatever that is.

Learn to run again eventually.

Whatever is worrying you, forget about it! Take a DEEP BREATHE and TRUST GOD!

His Whisper [Son chuchotement, Su Whisper, 他耳语, Il suo Whisper]

  
Good Day, Beautiful People!

I don’t know if you’re familiar with Dr Brian Simmons’ work. In my humble opinion, this is my far the best translation ever. He captured the heart of God, full of love of His people. May these words speak live, hope, faith and love into your spirit. Meditate and soak in it. Be truly blessed by your Heavenly Dad! 

  

Sharing this from Passion Translation. 
I hear His whisper…“I am the One who leads you through life. I have My hand upon you and I will not fail to guide you into the perfect path I have chosen for you. Many are the doors I have opened for you, for I am your Father and I watch over every part of you and every step you take. When shadows linger on your path I will be there to brighten your way and when you are confused I will make My ways even more clear to you.

When your life is in My hands you will never need to worry about what direction you are to go. It is not a game of “”Hide and Seek,”” searching for My will, as though you had lost it. My choices for your life will prevail and you will one day see how perfectly I have guided you. I have chosen you and because you are Mine, I have commanded My angels to be in charge of your days, protecting and holding you in My ways so that you will not stumble as you walk with Me.

Never doubt My plans for your life. I have made no mistake. You are always in My hands as the one I love. There may have been an earthly father that has forgotten his child, but I will never forget you, for the blood of My Son has made you fully Mine. I have called every star by name, I have measured out the oceans of the earth in the hollow of My hand, I have held the mountains of the earth and unrolled the tapestry of the skies– I will never forget you or fail to hold you near Me.

Watch as My mysterious ways open up before your eyes. Many have seen My miracles and never learn My mysteries. I will show miracles and mysteries as you keep your heart before Me. My dear child, I am a Father that will never fail you. I will instruct you in the way you should go and you will hear the voice of My Spirit giving you the secrets of My ways. Come closer to Me and I will whisper the words of life that will make you strong and pure for what is to come. I am the One who leads you and never fail you.”

Psalm 25:5 The Passion Translation 
Escort me along the way, take me by the hand and teach me. 

For you are the God of my increasing salvation.

I have wrapped my heart into yours!

For in You I will find rest [MF]

20140330-224956.jpg

With great pleasure and honour to share another great poem that is written by my creative friend, Melinda Fletcher. It has touched my heart and many others. If you are in the dark and challenging season in life, you just breathe and this shall pass. When time to fight, you fight. Time to stand, you stand. Time to sit, you sit. Time to rest, you rest. Trust Him to take care of you.

Sometimes it is dark and my view becomes clouded

I feel I’m forsaken with nowhere to run

But Your love is revealed to me Lord through my trial

Your faithfulness shines through the clouds like the sun

 

 For In you I will find rest

In you I will find rest

In you I will find rest

Rest for my weary soul 

 

When I am in weakness you show yourself stronger

The thorn in my flesh is my friend not my foe

I find when it’s hard I’m still better to trust you

Than be lost without you and all on my own

 

For In you I will find rest

In you I will find rest

In you I will find rest

Rest for my weary soul

 

Somehow in my mess you make beauty from ashes

Nothing is wasted with what I’ve been through

Your purpose in this is to gently restore me

And use what has value to bring glory to you

 

For In you I will find rest

In you I will find rest

In you I will find rest

Rest for my weary soul

 

When life is not easy and grief is upon me

When feelings of loss make my heart overwhelmed

You tell me to come to you Lord for comfort

For you understand and will carry my load

 

And In you I will find rest

In you I will find rest

In you I will find rest

Rest for my weary soul

 

I come to the foot of your cross when I’m weary

Reminding  myself of your sacrifice

Beholding you and your love gives me courage

Your yoke is easy and burden is light

 

And In you I will find rest

In you I will find rest

In you I will find rest

Rest for my weary soul

I Declare [2]

Sharing this beautiful poem written by my uniquely creative friend, Melinda Fletcher.
“I must declare the promises
To overcome the doubt
For fear and worry have no power
When I speak them out

I must declare your word out loud
Despite all that I see
For natural circumstances
Try to take my eyes off thee
I must sing out your praises Lord
In everything I do
You already have my answers Lord
In everything you do

And even if I am overwhelmed
By the wind and all the waves
I know that you will rescue me
Through your amazing grace
I’d like not to go through the fire
But even if I do
In your love and faithfulness
You’ll carry me right through

I must stay within your presence lord
Abide within your word
Surround myself with worship
And believe all that I’ve heard

For you promised to be faithful God
Despite how bad I feel
Help me to be faithful lord
To rest and to be still

Help me to trust in you!!!

He will give you faith to remove it
Or grace to go through it
He is True to his word and loves you
Run to Him not from Him!!!
Believe Him. Now is your chance!
Rise to the challenge of faith despite sight!!!!”
