Well, I am one of the singles around the world. It doesn’t matter if we don’t have any love life for now. Being single means we have more time for ourselves. Being single is challenging. This is the time to think about the things you really want to do in your life. Pursue your passion, live your dreams and love if you are in love!
My friends always asked me if why at my age I still haven’t got a boyfriend. I always told them that I don’t want to have a boyfriend right now. Even though some guys already proposed their love to me, I just ignored them. There’s more important things in my life that I need to take care of. Boys are not currently on my priority list. Although others say that if you have a special someone you will be more inspired in your daily life..really? But there are other people who can be our inspiration right? like our own family, friends, church leaders, colleagues, teachers, mentors, and of most of all the Lord.
The Lord knows who we are. He knows our thoughts and actions. Let’s make the Lord our guide in our single journey in this life. We many not find the right person to love right now but time will come and the Lord will give you the right person for you to love. Always put God first in all your daily tasks. Do the right things that needs to be done. Being single means there’s so much to do and learn. Love life and learning! Enjoy life being a single. Once you have a partner in your life, you can no longer do the things you are doing when you’re still single. Choose the right path in your life. It doesn’t matter if you can’t get anyone yo date you! It’s no big deal. Being a single person means the Lord has a purpose for you. The Lord wants you to reach your full potentials and to live your life to the fullest.
Do you think of Jesus Christ everyday? Do you communicate to our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ through prayer everyday?
Jesus Christ is the only begotten son of our Heavenly Father. He is our Savior; our Redeemer. Jesus Christ bled and died for our sins. Jesus’s atoning sacrifice took place in the Garden of Gethsemane and on the cross of Calvary. In the Garden of Gethsemane He prayed to our Heavenly Father and there He submitted to the will of Heavenly Father and began to take upon himself all the sins of the people. Jesus has sacrificed for us that we may not suffer if we will repent from our sins. He allowed himself to be crucified on the cross and slain for the sins of the world. He allowed himself to die on the cross and then his body was laid on the tomb and was then resurrected.
Jesus Christ is the light of the world. We must come unto him. Without him we are nothing. We must always keep in our mind that we are eternally indebted to him. If we follow and keep his commandments we will receive many blessings. We must always “take upon the name of Jesus Christ”, “always remember him”, “keep his commandments” and “endure to the end”.
Whatever the Lord commands us to do, obey him. He will always provide a way for us. Whatever trials or burdens we are suffering or encountering in this life remember that Jesus will be there to comfort and guide us. He will not give us burdens that we cannot bear. We are brought here in this world to be tried and tested, and to be perfect like him. Let us remain faithful and righteous to Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. They know our weaknesses and strengths. If we obey them, the blessings will be poured upon us.
I know that we our all sons and daughters of our Heavenly Father. Heavenly Father sent Jesus Christ to us because He love us so much. Jesus Christ is our Savior and he loves us that’s why he submitted to the will of Heavenly Father. Let us always put our trust to them. They want us to be happy and they’ll help us grow spiritually. “If we put our trust in them, they will support us in our trials, troubles, afflictions and we shall be lifted up at the last day”.
I want to share this very touching story sent to me by a friend thru text….
My mom only had one eye. I hated her…she was such an embarrassment. My mom ran a small shop at a flea market. She collected little weeds and such to sell…anything for the money we needed she was such an embarrassment. There was this one day during elementary school..it was field day and my mom came. I was so embarrassed. How could she do this to me? I threw her a hateful look and ran out. The next day at school…”your mom only has one eye?!”..and they taunted me. I wished that my mom would just disappear from this world so I said to my mom, “mom..why don’t you have the other eye?! If you’re only gonna make me a laughingstock, why don’t you just die?!” My mom didn’t respond..I guess I felt a little bad, but at the same time, it felt good to think that I had said what I’d wanted to say all this time…maybe it was because my mom hadn’t punished me, but I didn’t think that I had hurt her feelings very badly. That night..I woke up, and went to the kitchen to get a glass of water. My mom was crying there, so quietly, as if she was afraid that she might wake me. I took a look at her, then turned away. Because of the thing that I said to her earlier, there was something pinching at me in the corner of my heart. Even so, I hated my mother who was crying out of her one eye. So I told mself that I would grow up and become successful. Cause I hated my one-eyed mom and our desperate poverty. Then I studied really hard. I left my mother and came to Seoul and studied, and I got accepted in the Seoul University with all the confidence I had. Then I got married. I bought a house of my own. Then I had kids too. Now I’m living happily as a successful man. I like it here because it’s a place that doesn’t remind me of my mom. This happiness was getting bigger and bigger when..what?! who’s this?!…it was my mother still with her one eye. It felt as if the whole sky was falling apart on me. My little girl ran away, scared of my mom’s eye. And I asked her, “who are you?”, “I don’t know you!!” as if trying to make that real. I screamed at her, “how dare you come to my house and scare my daughter!” “GET OUT OF HERE NOW!!” and to this, my mother quietly answered, “oh I’m so sorry, I may have gotten the wrong address”, and she disappeared out of sight. Thank goodness she doesn’t recognize me..I was quite relieved. I told myself that I wasn’t going to care or think about this for the rest of my life. Then a wave of relief came upon me. One day, a letter regarding a school reunion came to my house. So, lying to my wife that I was going on a business trip, I went. After the reunion, I went down to the old shack, that I used to call a house..just out of curiosity there, I found my mother fallen on the cold ground. But I didn’t shed a single tear. She had a piece of paper in her hand..it was a letter to me.
My son, I think my life has been long enough now..and..I won’t visit Seoul anymore..but I could it be too much to ask if I wanted you to come visit me once in a while? I miss you so much and I was glad when I heard you were coming for the reunion but I decided not to go to the school for you. And I’m sorry that I only have one eye, and I was an embarrasment for you. You see, when you were very little, you got into an accident, and lost your eye. As a mom, I couldn’t stand watching you having to grow up with only one eye..so I gave you mine…I was so proud of my son that was seeing a whole new world for me, in my place, with that eye. I was never upset at you for anything you did..the couple times that you were angry at me..I thought to myself, it’s because he loves me. My son…Oh, my son…

I was touched when I’ve watched the music video of Chris Daughtry’s song- “What About Now”. His music video featured some of the very sad and tragic things happened in other countries and how the people suffered from illness, poverty and calamities. I have come to realize that we in our own way can make a difference in our lives and to other people’s lives. If we spread our Love and Care to the people around us then maybe the whole world will be a much better place to live in.
It is not hard for us to share right? Love makes the whole world round so why not share/give our love to the people around us? In our own little way we can help those people who are in need. We can share them some of our food and old clothes or we can offer our services to them. We can pray for them so that their pains and sufferings will ease. Each of us is a child of Heavenly Father. We are all important to him and He Loves us so much. Let us give our Love to all everyday! and not just “give love on Christmas Day”…..

Who do you think is going to win on the upcoming Presidential Election this November 2008? Obama or McCain?
I personaly think that Obama should win the Presidential Election. It’s time for a change. Let Democratic type of government rule America. Enough of the Republicans. Obama’s political will is fine. I know he can rule America well…but it would be better if it’s Hilary Clinton. I really like Hilary Clinton because even if she lost over Obama, she is still continuing her support for Obama hoping that he will win as new president of America.
There are so many sad, tragic things that are happening in our world today. Let me identify some of those things that we know and heard from the news on t.v, radio or read on newspapers:
1. Earthquake in China
2. Earthquake in Japan
3. War in the Middle East
4. Chaos in other countries
5. Oil Price Hike
6. Intense Poverty
7. Intense Famine
9. More and more crimes
10. Strong Typhoons that are hitting different places
11. The Change of Climate all over the world
13. The what we call “Global Warming” is already happening
14. Different Diseases that are hard to cure
15. Suicide Bombings in the Middle East
16. Chaos among Politicians
17. Graft & Corruption
….and many other things.
What will be the next?? Aren’t you afraid that this might be the signs that the end of the world is really near??
We really should always be prepared at all times because we never know when will the end of the world will come. Personally, I’m not yet prepared and I’m greatly affected on the things that are happening around my country and all over the world and whenever there are tragic situations happening in different places I always get shock!
This time we really have to be more closer to our Creator. Only the Lord knows what’s gonna happen next. We have to stand firm with steadfastness and faith to our Heavenly Father and his only begotten son Jesus Christ until the end…..
Let us all pray that there will be peace in our world…..Let’s help one another…together we could make this world a better place to live in!
Peace to all!
