Precious moment

Have you ever watched "about time"? It's a movie played by Rachel McAdams and Dohmnall Gleeson. If you haven't watched it, well, you should! 
This movie makes you think that every moment is precious. You can't turn back time (Although in this movie, the character played by Dohmnall actually can) that's why you should enjoy every moment in your life even the simplest and smallest moment. I have three sisters and a brother, we used to live together.. Back then having a dinner together is something that I do everyday with them and I considered it as nothing special. Now, I wish I could turn back time and do it all over again. How many times we take those simple moments for granted? Walking along the beach, sitting on the garden, hearing your boyfriend/girlfriend saying "I love you and want to grow old with you", watching classic movies when it rains, smelling the scent of the flowers, etc. I love the lyrics of the song of The Passenger, Let Her Go: 

Well you only need the light when it's burning low
Only miss the sun when it starts to snow
Only know you love her when you let her go

Only know you've been high when you're feeling low
Only hate the road when you’re missin' home
Only know you love her when you let her go
And you let her go

That's just one of the songs that remind us to value every moment that lies before us.
I just got back from Bali and I'm missin Bali so much right now! Maybe that's why I'm a bit melancholic here :) but my point is: People change, life changes. We can't stop that because it is inevitable but we can stop and thank God for that.

Long Distance Relationship

Long Distance Relationship
Many people say that long distance relationships stink.. It is true but there are also benefits of having a long distance relationship. Today I want to encourage those who are in a long distance relationship that it doesn’t always have to stink. There are things that also good in a long distance relationship: -You will not take that person for granted. You will value each moment that you spend together. I remember when Austin was here for 2 weeks, everyday felt so special. Even casual things such as having lunch together, doing my work, going to church felt so special. (Writing this makes me miss him so much..) -It helps you to keep your purity. I don’t know about you, but it is a struggle to almost every couple to remain pure while they’re dating. When I say pure, it’s not only “not having sex before marriage”, but it’s also anything close to that (Fondling, Caressing, etc). I always view long distance relationships as a blessing in disguise (It is really a…

Expect the great things!

“Ah tomorrow’s gonna be another long tiring day..”
“This is gonna get harder..”
Sounds familiar? I don’t know about you, but sometimes I can get so stressed out about tomorrow.. I worry about tomorrow too much that I can’t enjoy today. It’s so easy for me to think about how things won’t change in the future and it’s gonna be hard.

            Those who know me from the outside might think that I’m so positive and optimistic about life. But, honestly, so many times I feel afraid of the future.. Until yesterday, I was thinking about the future and I just realized that I was so negative! I was filled with so many fears, worries and doubts. Then I asked myself, “If I could imagine the bad things that can happen, why don’t I just imagine the good things?”. In life, there will be challenges and hardships but don't have low expectations in life just because we live in this fallen world. I don't want to spend my time worrying about the future. Instead, from now on, I will always exp…

Set-Apart Woman (True Purity)

"True Purity is so much more than a Christian rule to endure. True purity is so much more than the noble decision to wait for a future spouse. True purity is complete set-apartness for our heavenly Prince. True purity comes only when we fall into the loving arms of our Jesus Christ, surrender ourselves fully to Him, and allow Him to tenderly shape us into His likeness." -Leslie Ludy from Authentic Beauty.


I can't agree more with Leslie on this definition of true purity. "Purity" is not the most favorite topic for young people. As a matter of fact, the topic of purity sounds too serious and boring for them. It makes sense. In this modern era, having purity is something that is not common. People will think that there's something wrong with you that causes you to keep your purity. When I first told someone that I had never kissed anybody, she was like "What? Why?" she didn't get it because nowadays, when you're dating someone, kissing is jus…
