There is always an interesting thing around us, if only we are willing to pay a little bit more attention.

Hmm, I never saw this guy back in Indonesia :P

Quote of the Day

‎”Control must be maintained. There must always be a Lich King.” (Terenas Menethil II)

 

Self control is important. In the midst of joy or sadness, self control enables us to maintain priority, manage time and finish what we are supposed to do.

No Second Chance (Part 2): Anger Management

240220111420

But the Lord said to Moses and Aaron, “Because you did not trust in me enough to honor me as holy in the sight of the Israelites, you will not bring this community into the land I give them.”” (Numbers 20:12, emphasis added)

Moses:        O, Sovereign Lord, you have begun to show to your servant your greatness and your strong hand. For what god is there in heaven or in earth who can do the deeds and the might works you do?
Moses:        Let me go over and see the good land beyond the Jordan-that fine hill country and Lebanon.
The LORD: That is enough. Do not speak to me anymore about this matter. Go up to the top of Pisgah and look west and north and south and east. Look at the land with your own eyes, since you are not going to cross over Jordan.

(Deuteronomy 3:23-29)

By the waters of Meribah they angered the Lord, and trouble came to Moses because of them; for they rebelled against the Spirit of God and rash words came from Moses’ lips.” (Psalm 106:32-33, emphasis added)

This post is basically a continuation of what we had seen previously:

https://infinitereviver.wordpress.com/2011/02/16/no-second-chance/

At this time, the new generation of Israelites had grown up. The first generation had perished in the desert during 40 years of punishment of wandering in the wilderness. This second generation of Israelites were about to enter the Promised Land. Yet, in the occasion described in Numbers 20, they complained against Moses because there was no water to drink. The LORD told Moses: “Speak to the rock.” Yet, Moses in his rage hit the rock twice with his staff. Apparently Aaron agreed with Moses’ action. Although water did gush out, God punished Moses and Aaron: they could never enter into Promised Land…

It is difficult to be Moses. For 40 years he had to endure complaint, murmuring, whining and sulking from the entire nation. In the occasion above, he could no longer endure them; his patience went zero. He gave in to his rage: spoke rashly and did not trust God enough. As a consequence, he forfeited his reward: 40 years of hard work was forfeited in just one moment.

Moses prayed and prayed… and prayed some more.. and prayed some more. Still, God did not give him second chance…

The first generation of Israelites did not get second chance after their disobedience.
Moses did not get second chance after giving in to his rage.

How do we manage anger? At least, we should not speak nor act first. Sometimes, our words and action in rage are the foolish things in the world. Let’s wait until our head cools down then we speak and act.

Again, sometimes there is no second chance in life. So, don’t let our guard down against disobedience and rage, ok?

Efficiency in Work

Almost everyone is busy everyday. We have target to achieve, pile of work to finish and deadline to watch out for.

Some people say BUSY stands for Being Under Satan’s Yoke. Many people neglect their friends, families, ministries and spiritual life and they state “I am busy” as a reason.

 

Let’s be wiser in managing our time.

Let’s be more efficient in our work so we can finish it much faster.

Let’s be determined to delay gratification.

But most importantly, let’s lean on the LORD always.

 

“U can do it” Naruto Shippuden closing song.

Trust and Respect: Quote of the Day

Trust not the Dreadlords! They are the Lich King‘s jailors!” (Archlich Kel’ Thuzad)

When you’re sad and alone …” (White Zetsu), “… all you can count on is yourself.” (Black Zetsu)

 

I noticed some friends on Facebook have been posting about trust. In summary, they stressed that trust is something very expensive. Once it is lost, it will take years to regain it.

Similarly, one friend has lost respect to an important person in her life (was important, now may or may not be important). Respect is similar like trust: both are expensive. They take years to earn but a moment to lose.

 

Well, what should we do when we lose trust or respect to people around us?

For the time being, I can only think of one solution which consists of three steps:

1.)Pray to the LORD for guidance.

2.) Don’t resent them. Forgive them. What is over is over. However, please do the next step that is: (see below)

3.) Keep distance from them first. Maintain casual relationship and consider them as mere acquaintances. Don’t cut off the relationship completely. Our heart needs time to heal and they themselves need time to prove they are worthy of receiving our trust and respect in the future.

 

Prevention is always better than cure. In order not to lose trust and respect, there have to be communication and exchange of thought between the two parties.

Do not lose trust and respect of people you love, ok?

Demand in Life?

What will you do when people around you start demanding things from you?

People pull your left hand to the left, your right hand to the right, your head upward, and your legs downward.

(Good thing, isn’t it? That is the training to become Luffy of One Piece)

Will you complain? Will you try to comply with all their demand? Or, will you be angry?

Or, will you take it as an opportunity to really become like Luffy?

Summary of Saturday’s Happening 19, February, 2011

Tiring and busy day, really it was. But still, it was a day of exercise. This body of mine has to move fast and stay fit. Somehow, I realized I could not move as swiftly as I had used to be. Well, sitting down in front of PC for too long is definitely the reason.

Attributes conducted Moving-Out-Sales! Items were sold as low as $1 and there was 30% discount for many other items. I saw the customers swarming the sales products and some sweeping them from the book shelves, not to mention SOT students who were looking for their SOT textbooks.

Sorry, I have no picture for duty as I was too occupied by becoming a queue marshal.

Pastor Phil preached about hope. In the midst of great difficulty, we need to keep believing that there is future. God, the source of our hope, will empower us to keep believing. It was a good message, actually. Unfortunately, I was too tired an hungry.

I did not let the opportunity go off. It was a big discount and I purchased 4 CDs at only $35!!

Last not but not least, we had supper to fill in our hungry stomach.

CG Dinner 17, February, 2011

An outing with CG people in Newton.

It was a great time of fellowship over food, laugh and jokes. In particular, my friends taught me Chinese. “I give up on tone,” I admitted. I really want to master Chinese as it is my root. (and to attract girls as well)

A Chinese who does not understand Chinese? What an irony!

Most of the stalls sell seafood.. which I don’t really like Confused smile “You forfeited the taste of oyster,” James told me as I directly swallowed an oyster instead of chewing it. By the way, I can still eat seafood although I don’t like the taste.

“Hold your chopsticks properly,” Carwyn advised me. “I am right handed,” I answered. Yes, I hold chopsticks and pinch them with my fourth and fifth left fingers. When I use right hand to hold chopsticks, I use third and fourth fingers to pinch the sticks. Is that weird?

Free Meals

Yesterday the staff had New Year lunch in the General Office Level 2. Although I am not a staff, I am a good friend of them. So, my skin became thick and I joined them once most of them had eaten.
The objective is clear: to clear the table as much as I could.

In the end, I could not clear the table completely. So sad for it. Nevertheless, I  brought plenty food back to my lab so I could eat and work at the same time.

These were my lunch and dinner yesterday!! But, I could not finish the last meal.
So, last night I put it in a fridge. This morning I de-frosted it. And…

TADA!
