SACRED GIFT

Had no bow,
Wasn’t purchased in a store.
The first gift of Christmas
Was a simple gift.
A gift of love,
And life,
And peace,
Given by a father
To all His children.
“For God so loved the world,
He gave His son”
He is the Christ
He is Christmas
He is the gift!

LIFE’S A GAME MADE FOR EVERYONE AND LOVE IS THE PRIZE!

Untitled

On the other day when I was listening to the song, “Wake me up” by Avicci, and this line attracted me.

Back when we were still kids, doing chores were our game in life, and toys/chocolates were the prize. As time passes by, we develop by age and figure out how to see more about the society; Hardship, Pain, Hypocrisy, Appreciation, and above all, LOVE.

When you think about it, life appears to be insane. That is to say, you’re naturally introduced to this weird world. Then you grow up with family, companions, heartbreaks, and crazy feelings flying all around. As you’re growing older, new and more difficult obstacles emerge. It’s a test! You’re being tested to see how much you can handle before breaking. Human beings are created so firmly that they can persevere through an incredible amount. Whether you’re religious or not, everything happens for a reason.

Life as a game, is something fun and that can be played, delighted in and won. Love, be it love for someone else, love for one self, love of life, etc is one of the prizes. It’s very apt to view love as a prize, because that’s how it feels when you have it. But at the same time it shouldn’t be viewed as only a few can share in the prize, or that there aren’t enough prizes for everyone that’s playing.

Life really is made for everyone, and we each can experience love if we’re willing to let it in. Love as a prize can be romantic love or it can be the love you feel for your family, friends or your pet. It’s that specific feeling that’s the reason we’re all here in the first place, and you don’t have to earn it or compete for it, you can feel it right now if you decide to.

Love colours the path and story of our life. The differences between a pile of white paper and a vivid origami papers is that the colorful ones are more intriguing. By making it as an abstract in life, life is great when we’re shaded with experiences.

Cheers to life!

COMPARISON IS THE THIEF OF JOY

You are you,
Perfect, delightful you…
Not them. Be you!
Turn off their voices;
Allow yours to rise up;
It takes time to fade away.
The anxiety will come,
And if you just lean in,
It’ll go and then you’ll hear.
You’ll hear and see you.
You are marvelous;
See the beauty in you,
See the uniqueness in you.
Your way that’s the way;
And travel on your path,
Noticing your own blessings.
Live your own story.
For Comparison is the thief of joy,
Take your joy back, by being you!

EASTER LOVE

On this day, we celebrate love,
Unique and infinite, from heaven,
Enveloping the earth.
The Lamb of God,
Sacrificed
To cleanse our sin;
The fulfilment of the redemption
Promised ages ago.
The Word that descended from heaven
And lived amongst us-
Rabbi, friend, and role model,
The Son of God,
Who died on the cross
For you and I;
And rose again
On the third morn
That we too may
Sit at the right hand
Of the Lord the Father,
Creator of all seen
And unseen.

O, Happy, Happy Easter!

PALM SUNDAY

imageMany in the crowd spread their garments
And others strew branches from trees,
For they knew their Lord and King
Would come along that day.

They praised God for the son of David
And sang Hosanna in the highest!
Even now in this present day,
We should do the same.

The King who rode astride a colt
Through the palm-strewn way,
Will enter our hearts today,
So welcome Him right away.

On this day we shout our praise,
O, let us not delay;
That Christ who rode on the palm-strewn path
Will come into your hearts and mine.

WHAT IS A FRIEND?

Someone you can hang out with,
Have fun with and depend on.
Someone always there,
To provide comfort and security
In your hour of need.

Someone who fills you with merriment,
Adds joy to your life
Someone to share your happiness and sorrows.
A stormproof shelter,
A helping hand to overcome challenges.

Someone who’s special 
And so close in thought.
Someone who loves
When everyone else has let you down.

A friend… is what you are to me.

O BLESSED CALVARY!

On Calvary, my Lord was crucified,
Upon the cross, He bled for me,   
‘Twas love that placed Him there, 
To take away my sins, and set me free.

O dark Calvary!
Where Christ shed His blood for me:
O blessed Calvary!
There my Saviour died for me.

On your behalf, help me speak,
Thy words for the world to hear,
O Lord, help me speak of You –
Of Your love, without fear.

O dark Calvary!
Where Christ showed His love for me:
O blessed Calvary!                           
There my Redeemer set me free.
