Life Reflections

Thoughts on what’s going on in my life.

The Bridge to Eternity

The Bridge to Eternity

Twenty six plus years of being a Sabbath keeper are not enough to exhaust the multifacetedness of this holy day. Perhaps nothing less than eternity will suffice. Sitting in my Sabbath School class last week like a good Adventist, and catching up on the week's lesson...

Second Chances

Second Chances

Have you ever Messed up badly And you know it’s entirely your fault   Then you ask for a second chance Not because you deserve it But because your Master is kind   He gives it to you And things are as though the mistake never happened You know that you are...

The Art of Savoring the Moment

The Art of Savoring the Moment

When I was a Bostonian (or just-outside-of-Boston-ian), randomness was one of life’s essentials. Due to the brilliant construct of the MIT campus, the great ol’ Massachusetts Avenue divided the campus between the student life section on the west side, where most of...

Glassy Water

Glassy Water

This storm is ridiculous. How are we ever going to get to the other side? We move an inch forward and five backward. Water keeps coming in, and the twelve pair of hands’ effort to throw it out is simply futile. Is nature making a joke out of our misery? I am so sick...

Doing and Being Well

Revisiting the burning out phenomenon, especially burning out in ministry. If I could distill the answer to “how to live a meaningful life?” to something simple, based on my short life thus far, I think it would be the imperative of doing and being well. The two...

Love and Commitment

The assurance of a calling is a precious thing indeed. This year, after two years of asking God why, I saw and understood with clarity why I am where I am right now, with all prevailing circumstances, as if a portion of faith truly became sight. There is no shadow of...

The Edge of a Dream

What is it like to wake up from your musing to find the mist clearing up before your eyes and see glimpses of the world beyond What is it like to stand at the edge of a dream to discover that reality looks somewhat familiar because you've seen it in your sleep What is...

Burning, But Not Burned Out

See if this picture sounds familiar. Your life, as it were, is a building held up by a few main pillars. These pillars are the main roles that you play in life, whether it be family, school, work, church, ministry, etc. There are times when everything is going well,...

A Firstborn’s Memory

This entry is to commemorate my father’s passing two years ago. The day after my father passed away, it was determined that I would be the one to find and select the specific location where we would have his burial. So I went with a representative from a cemetery and...

Unexpectedness

At some point this afternoon I wanted to find a document on guides on how to study the Bible in my email archive. During the process, I remembered that I had forwarded the same document to my mother and father about two years ago, not long after my father had his...

No Ending

I see extremities, He sees opportunities I see a wall, He sees a veil In every cul-de-sac there's a secret passage way On every horizon there's a step beyond I see opportunities unveiled I take a step along the passage way In Him, beside Him, discovery and wonder are...

Something Different

Two weeks into 2011, I’m still in the spirit of reflection and preparation for the New Year. The year 2010 contained many tremendous blessings, specific lessons learned, with a lot of things to digest. Hence, I’m taking my time to go through them one by one. However,...
