When God Use You
Sometimes we think about how God can use somebody for someone, and we think of all the cool ways He can do it. He can make someone pray mightily for another, and the other person got healed. He can make someone share the powerful Gospel to another, and the other person repented. He can make someone testify about great things that God has done, and the other person got hungry and thirsty for more...
My Kind of Miracles
I dare say that miracles don’t only come in grand facades. It can also come in small, unexpected forms. To some people, miracles equals “the big stuff” - a parting ocean…a trembling mountain…a strong, strong wind. That’s true. But I believe miracles are also in simple daily living… * Waking up in the morning, breathing well * Smelling the fresh baked bread when passing by...

As I’ve learned, faith does not mean you will always be brave. Oh you can even be scared s***less and still have faith. Sorry but I just had to say that exact word. I believe faith is not just about trusting God that He CAN, but also knowing that He WILL. Whatever you’re going through right now, however terrible it may seem, BELIEVE that God is there and He knows your steps. He is shaping you,...

catherinefru: It’s a relief to know that I don’t have to write everything that is in me, all at once. A single essay does not need to exhaust its topic, nor does a chapter, or even a book. There is boldness in restraint.

Jane Austen and I
To be born in a family with mostly male in its members, I became quite a tomboy; was a make-believe pirate/treasure hunter, climbed trees and collected GI Joes. At the time when girls play house and boys play war, I’m sure you can already guess who’s side I was on. As I got older, I saw “The Godfather”, “Rocky” and “Indiana Jones” more than drama movies. Well of course I had pink...

Normally people would complain when they got sick. I almost did that last week when I didn’t feel well, went to the doctor and she told me I had to endure 2 whole weeks of bed rest and had soft diet (which means big N-O to spicy food—bummer). As hard as it was, I could go on with the soft diet. But I simply couldn’t bear the thought of lying in bed, doing nothing. So I took my laptop, started...
English ( /ˈɪŋɡlɪʃ/ )
My mother tongue is Indonesian or Bahasa Indonesia as we say it here. But honestly I prefer to speak in English, because in English there are many words that have much deeper meaning than in Indonesian. But let me take you back to the time when I hated the English language. My Mum used to work in the US Embassy at the Information Service before she got married and had my brother, David, and me....

Silent tears… Caught in the moment Not wanting to be heard True feelings hidden Real emotions shut Will not be breached Silent tears… I know you well ::e::
It’s only been one day since I joined Tumblr. Am a total newbie here. So I still have to go through so many things to figure this out. Nevertheless, I find Tumblr quite amusing so far and I like that feeling. I followed some people already, read their blogs and thought, “Wow! They wrote things just as easy as they breathe!” and I want that. I definitely want to get there. ::e::
