We all go through life and wonder at times how we got to were we are and why things happen the way they did.  I’ve often heard the most heard sound in heaven will be “ooohhh”..

I’ve had my trials through my life and I am still surprised at times how awesome my life has become.  It has not been without a lot of tears & work but I finally feel whole.  I have often found myself wondering why things happened in my past the way they did and what exactly am I suppose to take from my trials.  I have read devotionals, prayed, read my bible and tried to listen to for that whisper some are fortunate to hear.  But I never felt it was truly answered until I heard Rev. Dr. Hikmat Kashouh from Lebanon.  He came to speak at my church Forest Hill http://www.foresthill.org/watch-and-listen/weekend-message/things-unseen/leaving-nothing-behind.html and told about the troubles and persecution of Christians in the middle east and he said he was asked how can he keep going after all he has been through and his reply was “so I can show others how to live with grace”.  And there it was my answer I have been waiting to find.  I survived my troubles and love God to show others who have been through similar experiences that they can survive too.  We are truly lucky to live in a land where we can worship and love who we want.  And I am truly lucky to have heard my whisper from a pastor all the way from Lebanon..  Thank you Rev. Dr. Hikmat Kashouh

  1. This sort of boundary % black and white is somietmes quite troublesome. But, I do think it is good to open your blog/journal for comments, coz somehow it is still very encouraging to have people responding to what you have wrote. ^^ eh well, just feel you are a very poor guy having to reply to dozens of messages everyday, which seems never-ending sigh T_T honestly, I feel frustrated whenever I come across comments like these it is just like a cycle newbies step into the gothic lolita field. After acquiring certain knowledge about the scene, they start to fighting against each other verbally with a view to confirm theirselves as an eligible one And one more thing, it’s a trend I guess. Many people nowadays are impulse-driven: Responding without reading and thinking thoroughly about the 6Ws. (that’s why I say you are poor)XDXD~ perhaps let’s put an end to this discussion, shall we? because the next debate will be staged somewhere again one day UNLESS we all learn how to accept and appreciate others. ^^ p.s. my comments are in fact very local and rude( in cantonese~ because I was too tired when I gave the comment~ )
