Once upon a time.

September 15, 2009

Truth, naked and cold, had been turned away from every door in the village. Her nakedness frightened the people. When Parable found her she was huddled in a corner, shivering and hungry. Taking pity on her, Parable gathered her up and took her home. There, she dressed Truth in story, warmed her and sent her out again. Clothed in story, Truth knocked again at the doors and was readily welcomed into the villagers’ houses. They invited her to eat at their tables and warm herself by their fires.

travel + photography

September 6, 2009
my travels- big part in shaping who i am today.
photography- one of my many loves.
travels + photography = passion, to its core.

gigabytes of travel photos- instead of redundantly occupying the computer’s memory..
may i offer facets and perspectives of life…
thru my viewfinder, my eyes, my kaleidoscope..

first up, a personal fav-
An evening shot of the beautiful beach of Hoian, Vietnam.

Smiling is infectious,

you catch it like the flu

When someone smiled at me today I started smiling too;

I passed around the corner,

and someone saw my grin;

When he smiled I realised I’d passed it on to him;

I thought about that smile,

then I realised its worth;

A single smile, just like mine,

could pass around the earth;

So if you feel a smile begin,

don’t leave it undetected;

Lets start an epidemic quick,

and get the world infected

Job 23:10

Job. A man familiar with suffering and sorrow..
yet, out of his understanding and intimacy with the Lord Almightly, he testified…

But he knows the way that I take;
when he has tested me, I will come forth as gold.”

5 loaves & 2 fish

September 2, 2009

Familiar passage.
5 loaves & 2 fish fed the 5000,with 12 basketful of leftover crumps.

Mark 6:30-44

fatigue is setting in to drain you away? the disciples experienced that as well.
but the Lord’s respond was, “Come with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest.

overwhelmed by challanges ahead? the disciples were facing that too to feed the thousands..
‘chase’ the people back to their home..in escapism from the problems ahead?..
instead, the Lord answered, “You give them something to eat.”

hoping for a miracle?
the Lord added on, “How many loaves do you have?” “Go and see.”

after the Lord’s instruction to group the masses and gave thanks.
5000 were fed. 12 basketful of leftovers.

are your challenges greater then that of feeding the 5000?

Here’re some handlers (from the passage) on how to overcome the mountains..:

1. Go to the Lord in solitary and find rest
In the quietness and stillness of our heart, He speaks. Most of the time, whispers.

2. Look at what you already have.
The answer might lie within our own hands. Do you see it?

3. Break them down into bitesize.
the smaller they get, the better they get ‘digested’.

4. Give thanks.
Heart of gratitude keeps us in check with the kingdom perspective.

5. Follow thru to witness the miracle.
Acknowledge the source. Count your blessings.

Come what may…

He’s @work.
