real rest

Sleep does not help if it is your soul that is tired. 睡眠是無濟於事的,如果疲倦的是你的靈。 Promise from Jesus in Matthew 11:28-30 — “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you…

spice of life

Occasionally one needs to add “spices” in one’s mundane life to make it that bit “spicier” — good food, good coffee, good company and soul-nourishing conversations! Have you done that lately? 在平淡的生活裡不妨加添一點“調劑品”,讓自己能體會一些“小精彩”… 如品嚐美食,輕啜香濃咖啡,與三兩知己相聚和來個滋潤心靈的交談! 你最近有如此做嗎?

Worry is a misuse of imagination! 忧虑是糟蹋了想象力! ***** Matthew 6:28 And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. 馬太福音 6:28 何必为衣裳忧虑呢?你想野地里的百合花怎麽长起来;他也不劳苦,也不纺线。

what would life be without flowers?

“Just living is not enough,” said the butterfly, “one must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower.” — Hans Christian Andersen (1805 – 1875, Danish author, best remembered for his fairy tales) “Flowers always make people better, happier and more helpful; they are sunshine, food and medicine to the soul.” — Luther Burbank (1849 – 1926,…
