trying to play catch up

On Sunday, Daeshin asked me to get somebody to post something on the blog for this week, but having such a fabulous memory, I completely forgot and so I apologize.

The blog’s been pretty slow for quite some time (understandable, to an extent), but let’s put this into perspective: this blog was initiated in order for us to keep in touch, share our thoughts, and to truly grow as a group outside of the Sunday setting.  The more we “forget” or feel annoyed by the fact that we “have” to update, the greater the rift between us as a group grows (spiritually?  emotionally?), simply because we don’t care enough.  So let’s stop neglecting this little outlet that we’ve all set up together!

To be honest, this will be one of things that keep me from feeling lonely once I’m in Montreal.

Speaking of Montreal, I’ve been approved to move into the apartment I found last weekend!  Yay, paying your credit card on time sure does pay off, haha!  My landlord gave me the OK to move in on the final weekend of August, so we only have 5 more Sundays together!  Of course, you are all more than welcome to come visit and stay at my place in Montreal (if you don’t mind sleeping on the floor…!)

On a final note, I attach a video of a contemporary dance routine recently featured on So You Think You Can Dance. It portrays a woman’s struggle with breast cancer. I don’t really know why I’m adding it here, but it really moved me, and I hope it does for all of you as well!



laziness

I am so lazy. Sometimes, I say it like I’m proud of it. Sometimes, I like being lazy; other times, I hate myself for being lazy.

The summer is already a month over, and I still have yet to find a job to help fund grad school. I guess I’m just praying a lot that my scholarships will come through, but I still do need to pay for rent on top tuition. Does relying on God make me lazy?

Yesterday my co-worker asked me what I do with my time, besides working at the pool. I couldn’t answer him – I feel as though I’m always busy, but I don’t think I do anything productive. I spend a lot of time commuting, working out, sleeping, and playing Restaurant City on Facebook (which oddly eats up a lot of my time), but those are not very productive things.

I know I shouldn’t be lazy – instead, I should be working hard at making the best of the opportunities given to me. So I’m going to apply to jobs today (hold me accountable, please!) and start looking for apartments in Montreal.

Why are people so lazy?

little (or big?) blessings

(Sorry Daeshin if this post embarrasses you a little bit!)

This week, I had the chance to go see Leah JDSN and her new baby Timothy. I was just soooo AMAZED by how quiet and obedient he was! And of course, he is very, very cute.

Watching how Leah JDSN interacted with Timothy and how much pain and what an ordeal it was for her to give birth to him really helped me understand, just a little bit, how much our parents love us. What really amazed me though, was how Leah JDSN and Daeshin are already planning for Timothy’s future – they hope & pray that he will grow up to be a missionary like his parents, and that he will be able to serve God’s purpose with his life. That is really a huge indication of their love for little Timothy.

That made me really think about how everything we do in life should be to serve God. Even having babies should not be for our own selfish desires to raise a family, or to have cute babies around you (hehe, that would be my initial thought)!

In addition, seeing Timothy made me realize all the new babies God has blessed our church with. He is really helping our church grow and realize its vision. I am comforted by the fact that as I leave the church in September, I will have reassurance that God is still going to make sure that the church is growing steadily, and that there will always leaders (or, leaders-in-training)! I suppose that is also a lesson in trusting wholly in God.

That’s why I named this post “little (or big?) blessings”. Because the babies or such tiny little things, but what they represent for our church is such a HUGE blessing!! I can’t wait to see all of them grow up, hehe =)

very first christian church

Seriously, talk about divine intervention! This is a brand new video from the same people who made the “March of the Unqualified” video that I added in the this blogs very first post. It’s interesting because we JUST talked about this on Sunday, and now this video is available!

It touches upon the issue of our identity in Church and the many prejudices that many people hold. Also, it emphasizes the importance of effective communication (SO important!!).

Enjoy! It’s funny =)

If you don’t understand all of it, or have any questions – post them in the comments!

inspiration

Hey everyone,

I happened upon this organization just from doing research for school stuff, but it’s a super cool group/fund/forum that is all about sharing innovative and inspirational ideas.  Topics range from the environment, music, charity, technology, enterprise, etc.  It’s mostly a lecture series that features really neat people from around the world to talk about their topic of expertise.  Huge financial awards are given to those who win the annual award as well.

Anyway, I just thought that since this is a place where we can share our thoughts and ideas, the site seemed relevant.  It’s really inspiring to watch all these talks and the work that these people are doing around the world.

Here’s a video that I recently watched and enjoyed!
