I truly just want to be thought of and remembered as someone who loves others and genuinely cares about people. I have no ulterior motives behind my positivity and kindness, nor am I fake. My heart is huge and I’m a very emotional person. I always have been but fear has held me back for years and…
In the day-to-day experiences f life, we’ve got opportunities to learn to live like Christ, to choose to be patient, be thoughtful, to help others and to pray.
In worship, we are reminded of God’s greatness, his mercy and his desire to do good in our lives. We are reminded that we can trust him and that we depend on him, just as Jesus did.
In prayer, we acknowledge that we depend on God, and we ask him for the help we need—needs such as food, intervention, and spiritual change. “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God”
In the church, we immerse ourselves in the holy spirit, and Christ teaches us how to interact with other people, appreciate each other despite our different talents, abilities, and characteristics, as we are all on Christ-focused training program.
In service, in helping others, we act like the way Jesus would. We acknowledge by our experiences that service gives us more life satisfaction than selfishness does. Being involved in the work of God is the most satisfying feeling of all, for it will be of eternal value. When we die, we can’t take physical things with us, but we can take these grace from God once we accomplished the missions he put in our hands.
And more in difficult times than good times, our character is shaped like Jesus. We learn more about love when we love people who are not so lovable, we learn more about forgiveness when people sin against us. Even when we cannot see any lesson learned from the hardtimes we experienced, remember that God has something wonderful planned for us. Our trials are only temporary, but the glory will last forever. Trust him, and open your life to let him work more powerfully!
Today I got up early, like at 6 o’clock, to attend morning mass. Thank God, for awakening me, showing me the meaning of attending masses in the morning. That it’s unlike usual masses, they’re where we we can also offer our entire day to God. My new day has come in your graceful peace.
I feel loved, and I can’t express how much I love you, my family and friends and all other people around. And I feel real peaceful – which I’ve never experienced before. Thank you for leading me the actual way to real happiness in life. I pray to have dedicate all my life to you, to people from now on. I pray for all the souls, dead or alive – to be in the peace of yours.
Today I’m officially 22. I can say this is the best birthday I’ve ever had so far. I’ve never pay much attention about my birthday, for me, it’s just like any days in my life. Nothing special to me. But yesterday it was so special, warm, and happy. Thank you all! <3
22 years. I still remember my childhood memories, it feels so close like just yesterday. As I’m growing up, I realize that time passing by faster than we were young. It’s cliché, I know, but where did the time go? I don’t write down my feelings as much as I used to. I need to do that more. Documentation is helpful. In order to appreciate who you are now, you need to see where you’ve been.
Whatever we do, time flying by with its own speed, we can’t pause, or slow it down. Yet we can make every single second count, whether we are spending times with family, or friends or working, or just spending times on our own. Make it count. I will bottle up those great feelings deep inside my heart, and everytime I unwrap them I can feel them again, and be able to smile, no matter how hard I might feel at that moment. I miss my family, it’s been so many birthdays I spend without them. But oh well, I’m gonna see them the upcoming weekend.:)
I feel loved. I’m grateful. And that’s enough for me to see people around me be healthy, and happy. May God bless us all. May Mother Mary lead us in our lives.
Today was a good day so far. Things went a little hard in the morning, like I got all messed up and angry with tons of informations and I couldn’t figure out what I’m looking for. But then somehow I told myself to sit back, relax and pray for peace in my soul. It worked. Never happens that I pray with Mother Mary and she ignores me. And after a short nap, I started the afternoon feeling a little light in my head. And my boss even bought us some sweet gruels and some boiled corns. I was enjoying the atmostphere so much, I felt closer to my colleagues than ever. I’m happy. But I can’t wait till time to off work and go to the church.
