Spelling Out Life... with Refugee Home

Lord, I pray that You love continue to be their support, their strength, their joy and their provider. Open up their hearts that they will make You as their father, saviour and friend. Thank You for the burdens that You have for the teachers and pastors for these people. You are indeed a great God that provides. You are the God that lives, the God that answers prayer and have good plans for each and everyone of us. Be with them. Support them, LORD. Give them security as they have no place to go. Give them peace in their hearts. Give them LIFE. Give them grace. in Jesus name, amen.

To those who wants to ever donate to them books, colouring pencils, toys and clothes, of all age and sizes, please let me know. :) May the Lord speak to you to touch their lives. Amen.

Spelling Out Life... With A Good Read about ♥

The reason that marriage is so painful and yet wonderful is because it is a reflection of the Gospel, which is painful and wonderful at once. The Gospel is—we are more sinful and flawed in ourselves than we ever dared to believe, and at the very same time we are more loved and accepted in Jesus Christ than we ever dared hope. This is the only kind of relationship that will really transform us. Love without truth is 

sentimentality; it supports and affirms us but keeps us in 

denial about our flaws. Truth without love is harshness; it 

gives us information but in such a way that we cannot really 

hear it. God’s saving love in Christ, however, is marked by both radical truthfulness about who we are and yet also radical, unconditional commitment to us. The merciful commitment strengthens us to see the truth about ourselves and repent. The conviction and repentance moves us to cling to and rest in God’s mercy and grace.

The hard times of marriage drive us to experience more of this transforming love of God. But a good marriage will also be a place where we experience more of this kind of transforming love at a human level.

Spelling Out Life... with A Teacher's Quote

A child who... has traced over the sandpaper letters again and again for many days – perfecting something in himself – will one day consciously set out to compose words with the movable letters. First, the child creates by repetition a faculty inside himself; and then he creates something with it, outside himself. This is an experience which gives him a new kind of joy, the conscious joy of the creator.

- Maria Montessori

Spelling Out Life.... with Misses

I saw millions and millions of stars the other day and I was taken aback. It was such a beautiful scenery. Looking up to heaven and somehow your face is all I can think of. :) I miss you.

anyway, I saw this picture online somewhere and it reminded me of my trip to Pulau Pemanggil. :) The quote however, is the words that I heard in my heart when I first saw the starry scene. I hope it speaks to you as how it does to me :)
