Juliet's Letter

Dear Claire,

What and if are two words that are non threatening as words can be, but put them together side by side and they have the power to hold you for the rest of your life.

What if… what if … what if….

What if … I don’t know how your story ended but if what you feel then was true love then its never too late. If it was true then why wouldn’t it be true now? You need only the courage to follow your heart… I don’t know what love like Juliet feels like- a love to leave love ones for,  a love to cross oceans for but I d like to believe if I ever were to feel it that id have the courage to seize it.

And Claire if u didn’t I hope one day that u will…

Am I Stinking?

God is never late. He is never in a hurry. We are the one who is always in hurry because we do not know the ending of each of our story. Remember the story of Lazarus in John 11? Jesus already knew that his friend Lazarus was sick and was dying but he told his disciple that he will come to his friend in two days. He could have come earlier, he love Lazarus like a brother so why did he have to wait TWO PRECIOUS DAYS?  Lazarus was dead already when He came, he was embalmed and was covered in mummy clothes and most of all he was STINKING already! why did he have to wait? So that He could have the most glory, ofcourse!

If Lazarus was just sick - okay, thanks Jesus
If he was dying - Praise Jesus you came to heal him
But he was dead two stinking days - Jesus reap all the glory and all who saw what he did had faith in Him

God's timing is always perfect! His time is not like ours. Our 2 years of asking from Him must feel like its never going to happen anymore but GOD has never been late in meeting our needs.

Most of the time when we want something from God we start out in our prayers in a very passionate way.We claim all of his promises and our hearts are bursting with trust and faith. After a while, our prayers goes seemingly unanswered and we are starting to lose the intensity of our prayers.... then suddenly things seem to lighten up and it looks like our plea is being answered... everything is going our way and its almost there - then, BLAM! then something happened and it is exactly the opposite of what we've been praying for! and we think LIFE STINKS!

If that's the case, well, remember that Lazarus STUNK just before the miracle! If we think we are stinking now... we are ready for a miracle :D
There's nothing we can do to make the miracle come faster- nothing. We must pray, we must believe - but we don't push down the door if it's still lock.
Vision and purpose will fuel us to go on - if God gives us the miracle, he gives us the strength to contain it.

I don't know about you but i think at the moment Im really stinking :D

dressed chicken

I remember one time i was walking downtown with my 8 year old cousin and he saw this sign that says "Dressed Chicken for Sale".
He then asked me, "Ate Nat, what kind of dresses do the chicken wears?" and i really laugh out loud with that one. So i had to explain that dressed chickens are really chickens that are already cleaned and ready to cook; that their feathers and stuff were already taken out to make them ready for whatever people wants to do with them in the kitchen. And he was like, "really? why is it called dressed chicken then?"
 and I was like, Yeah, why? i mean if we follow the meaning of the word "dressed" it really means that somebody has put on the kind of clothes that is required for a certain occasion.... why not say "Undressed Chicken for Sale" or say "Un-plucked Chickens for Sale"... now that is more practical and understandable.

~ A Foggy Blog ~

To write
to ponder
to wonder where I’ll be
when opportunities arise
to set my spirit free

Will you be there
to touch me
and share the emotions of my soul
will you be there
to kiss me
and be the man i adore?
will you be there
in the morning
when sunlight kisses flowers
will you be there
to embrace our love
and give meaning to our hours

My love is bubbling over
it’s more than I can bear
restraining it inside of me
is causing me despair
I want to share it freely
I want to give it all away
all the themes
in all my dreams
are focused on that day

This is what I’m thinking
as I sit here at my blog
letting thoughts escape me
like a ghostly misty fog
writing down whatever
letting feelings have their way
blogging in my cyberspace
on a cool rainy day
