2 Corinthians 12:10
“That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.”
lesdudis: 10 signs you are an insecure leader! →
jkoshjkosh: lesdudis: #1 – You see people as working for you and not with you. #2 – Everyone who pushes back on any of your ideas is automatically branded as disloyal. (Because for you “loyalty” is defined as, “loving everything I say and do!”) #3 – Every time someone begins to say something good about someone else you always have to be the person who says, “yes, but what you don’t know...
My parents always took me along with them to golf practice ranges. During these times, I would wander off looking for things to do. I remember going to all the accommodating candy/refreshment centers, the tv lounges, and goose ponds. The best parts to the visits were the mini-golf courses. There were courses with mini wind-mills and bridges. There were courses with deep pools of water and fake...
In Search of Small Churches
http://www.seeya-downtheroad.com/ShortStories/SmallChurches.html Oh, the adventure of traveling- to find miniature churches.

The dangers about the whole lin-craze is that we can erect Jeremy into a god. This might sound silly, but I always have to keep my heart in check when I’m talking about J. Lin because sometimes my choice of words can end up sounding like idol-worship. It’s quite contrary to what his actual intentions are- he wants to direct our attention from him to Him. I do really admire what...

susankim: The sports world has a historically fraught relationship with complexity. Like caramel on ice cream, opinions of athletes are often formed quickly and harden fast. “Look at his stride—-he’s got a hitch.” “She’s too slight—-won’t be able to get anywhere on the field.” “With that wingspan, he’ll be able to impose his will on defense.” Whether you’re torpedoed all the way to the...
Thank You for loving me.

“So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day.” 2 Corinthians 4:16 (ESV) I would like to share this with my parents this. I’m sure they know this verse, but I think it’s nice to remind them.
“She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come.” Proverbs 31:25 Beautifully phrased. Please.
I love smiley people. I love it when I’m smiling at people & they are smiling right back at me. It’s a beautiful moment. It’s like the scene at the end of the korean movie “Sunny” when the last member comes to the funeral and they all look at her, and there’s a glimpse of them in their former, adolescent form, sharing a smile with each other. It’s a...

Anonymous asked: Would you care to explain how the world glamorizes the clinical disease of depression? I'm not quite sure if that's accurate.

The World: Glamorizes depression and emacation, as if they were commodities. The real deal: “Rather, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight.” 1 Peter 3:4

I wonder how much rice an asian person consumes by the end of his/her life. I also wonder the average ramens a college student consumes over his/her four years of higher education. My roommate just gave me a box that she was finished using from Max Brenners. It’s so pretty. I giggled in glee when I received it in my hands. The joys of the little things. When people learn that I go to...
We took a coffee break for Design of Dissent class, so I stepped out to print out my work. I come back to the classroom, about to take a seat. All I’m thinking is, “Ugh, I’m 5 minutes late and the teacher’s already talking. This is so embarrassing.” I’m about to go to my corner seat, but I realize that someone has taken my seat. No, wait. That’s not my...
