Revenge

I am not the most righteous person but I have beliefs and I try to live God's teachings in whatever decisions I make. What I am trying to say is that I am the kind of person who doesn't like the idea of revenge.

When my son was hit and ran by a motorcycle about two years ago,  I was devastated and we couldn't find the person who did that to him, even until now. Remembering my son's condition at the Emergency Room still brings tears to my eyes but what can I do. I guess what hurts the most is that I could not give justice to my son and the thought of it breaks my heart into pieces. Despite the hurt, I could not sense revenge in my pain. I believe that in time, his action will have a counter effect on him. I also believe that if the things that we do, our endeavors, are rooted out of revenge, we will not succeed. God knows what is in our hearts even before we were born.

Revenge must come from Him alone, in His own time.

"Don't try to get revenge for yourselves, my dear friends, but leave room for God's wrath. It is written, Revenge belongs to me; I will pay it back, says the Lord." (Romans 12:19 CEB)

Dream Interpretation: Collapsing Building

I had a dream last night about a building collapsing with me and some other co-workers inside it.
We're cleaning up some rooms at the first floor while construction men, well, do their job in other parts of the building particularly the third floor. After hours of cleaning, my co-workers and I decided to call it a day and get our things at the third floor. When we got there, the building started to tilt and in just a few seconds, everything collapsed. None in the group got hurt as the floor we're standing on wasn't damaged, in fact, it slid down a slope while we still hold on to dear life. At the end of a downhill ride, we found ourselves on a lake. I saw some of my co-workers crying and calling for help.

To dream of cleaning, according to Dream Moods, implies you are overcoming major obstacles in life. You are moving ahead toward a new stage in your life.
To see a building in a dream is to see the self. How high you are in the building represents your …

Something hairy, soft and wet

It is the time of gift giving and Kris Kringle again. Of course, our office is also in to the spirit of generosity. It is already our third week and I am the lamest gift giver lately. I have to make amends to that since my 'baby' is someone who is dear to me, someone who I trust.

I already have the 'something embarrassing to carry in public' and it is too embarrassing for me to show in this post. Let me just focus on the 'something hairy and soft' and 'something wet'. I was lucky to find both in one cute gift set... The hairy and soft teddy bear key chain and the wet but fragrant cologne.

Don't worry if I spilled the beans, my officemates have no idea that I have a blog.

Do you have Kris Kringle in your office?
