Bible, Quotes

The legacy of Christianity

The bible sees both body and soul as equally good and equally affected by sin.

It teaches that the great human struggle is not between mind and body but takes place within our hearts.

Augustine formulated

For the first time the supreme goal of life was not self-control and rationality but love. 

Love was required to redirect the human person away from self-centredness toward serving God and others.

One of the sub content from Making sense of God (An Invitation to the Skeptical) by Timothy Keller

Special Day

taste every drop

on friday, 1st of June. its our 50th date in our 4th month.

This life is great and exciting at the same time.
it brings so many unpredictable moments, peoples and blessings in your life.

it brings you someone that you love and care so much.
it brings you someone that you did not realize was there for quiet long and to be someone to share your life with.

sometimes, it brings unpleasant moment. feeling freaking sucked-up, it was like drowning into deep ocean… deep… very deep… until you can’t breath.. a moment that you thought you were so tired.. really tired..

But a moment after, it brings so much love after all the struggles you had been going through. When you feel you can’t breath, it gives you a biggest ever field so you can take a bigger look and dip beneath into as much as oxygen. When you feel so weak, it gives you prayers and great people around to strengthen you.

Life such as brilliant thing created to treasure it.

People always said quarrels will bring a breakthrough. agree and disagree about it. i still believe, communication is the most important element exclude all other important things that are essential in relationship.

sharing thoughts and feeling honestly, listen with humble heart and encouraging each other to share.

not an easy task, learning to understand the person is continuous effort, spending your time together, using up your energy, some time overly-worked your thoughts to try to understand that person because you care and you want to learn to understand your partner.

the best thing is not to assume anything.

its the 50th of our dates and about more than a hundred days. does not count on group setting with friends or attending church services. even many thing we have learned and grown one another, but there are always other new thing we discover, its exciting.

like a simple story about giving.

a glass full of water, where water could not be poured-in anymore. it will drop out of glass and wasted.

and when you start giving out, your glass will create a space for new things to come in, will bring new and refreshing thing into your life.

i think this short story is really cool, like really cool! ought to start giving and expecting less.

and never take for granted the thing that you love.

see here, everyday is a starting day for new thing in life. even in our life. we see new different thing, a new perspective, a chance to grow, a time to treasure.

every morning is a new beginning.. lets do it!

today (6th of July) shows another grow in our communication. thank you dear for your courage to speak lovingly. thank you for your sharing and initiative to make this relationship a beautiful and fruitful one for you and me.

still very much in love.
