Lately, I’ve been reading a book called “The Reason for God” by Timothy Keller, a pastor at Redeemer Presbyterian Church in New York. While most of the Christian books that I read usually revolves around faith, vision, relationship, and discipleship, this is the first time I’m reading about Apologetics, the art of defending the Bible.
Words. A sound or combination of sounds that has a meaning behind it. Whether we realize it or not, words have so much power that can either bring us down or build us up. When words are being used in a proper way at the right time, they can encourage, give people hopes and confidence. Sometimes, they even can actually be life changing for some people.
On the light of Mother’s Day, I want to share a little story of my motherhood life. One morning, I woke up tired due to lack of sleep. My cute little boy decided to wake us up a lot the night before. That morning, I was holding my little one on one hand while trying to grab his food container from our fridge with the other.
I have been trying to prove myself in life. “You can always work a bit harder to achieve more.” My parents taught me; “Don’t be too comfortable in where you are today or you will never grow.”
It’s December! I can’t believe it’s December again! 2017 went by so fast. I remembered some of my friends arrived in Seattle as freshmen, recently they graduated and ready to go back home to their home country for good. If we are not careful, time will pass us by. It is up to us to use the time that we have to do good and meaningful work.
Not too long ago, I was watching a TV series called “New Amsterdam” starring Ryan Eggold who played the character of “Dr. Max Goodwin”. The show was about Dr. Goodwin’s effort to provide the best care to the patients by breaking the bureaucracy of the old hospital. In one of the episodes, a Chinese student in a university attempted to commit suicide despite being a straight A’s student. She described the feeling of emptiness, hard to wake up in the morning (due to the thoughts that she would fail everything on that day), and worthless; All of which are some of the symptoms of Depression.
