A kindergarten teacher has decided to let her class play a game. The teacher told each child in the class to bring along a plastic bag containing a few potatoes. Each potato will be given a name of a person that the child hates, so the number of potatoes that a child will put in his/her plastic bag will depend on the number of people he/she hates.
So when the day came, every child brought some potatoes with the name of the people he/she hated. Some had 2 potatoes; some 3 while some up to 5 potatoes. The teacher then told the children to carry with them the potatoes in the plastic bag wherever they go (even to the toilet) for 1 week.
Days after days passed by, and the children started to complain due to the unpleasant smell let out by the rotten potatoes. Besides, those having 5 potatoes also had to carry heavier bags. After 1 week, the children were relieved because the game had finally ended….
The teacher asked: “How did you feel while carrying the potatoes with you for 1 week?”. The children let out their frustrations and started complaining of the trouble that they had to go through having to carry the heavy and smelly potatoes wherever they go.
Then the teacher told them the hidden meaning behind the game. The teacher said: “This is exactly the situation when you carry your hatred for somebody inside your heart. The stench of hatred will contaminate your heart and you will carry it with you wherever you go. If you cannot tolerate the smell of rotten potatoes for just 1 week, can you imagine what is it like to have the stench of hatred in your heart for your lifetime???”
Moral of the story: Throw away any hatred for anyone from your heart so that you will not carry sins for a lifetime. Forgiving others is the best attitude to take!
True love is not loving a perfect person but loving an imperfect person perfectly!
My sister just sent me this through email :) I hope we all learned a lesson.
I really think God has a purpose on why Papa left his book, Extravagant worship, here at home. Maybe God wants me to read it and meditate on it. I’ve been reading this book for a couple of days now and I’ve been blessed and encouraged to take Praise and Worship seriously. I’ve been on the Worship ministry for more than a year now and I just started leading and Im thinking that God really placed and called me and has a purpose on why Im in the ministry. Oh, how I’d want to be called an EXTRAVAGANT WORSHIPPER!
Depends on who those people are. Sometimes Im afraid to show off who I really am ‘coz Im afraid that they might get irritated and Im afraid to be judged. Im easily hurt of what other people say about me. I sometimes feel that I still have that wall that I still need to break for others, who don’t know me yet, to know who the real Eunice is. Im only comfortable with the people whom I know. ‘Coz with them, I can do everything that I want to do and be crazy and random :)
Yesterday I felt awful. I wasn’t feeling well. My body hurts, my head hurts, everything hurts and I had a fever last night. And now spots are starting to come out from my body! And they’re kind of eeky to look at. I have three on my back, one on my leg and one on my neck. OOOHH! This is totally bad! I probably can’t attend the seminar on Friday and (please no!) tomorrow’s reunion with my Elementary classmates :( THIS IS SICK! Remember when I told you guys that my sister has chicken pox. Yeah, now I have them spots! But I hope I wouldn’t get a lot like my sister did.
My cousin is coming over our house tomorrow and hopefully she’ll bring with her her bike so she can teach me how to ride it hahaha :)) That’s one of my summer to-do list! And speaking of my summer to-do list, I fail at my number one! I should have gain weight but I didn’t! Instead, I lost 1 kilo! :( I FAIL!
The CIK Youth Friends are now starting to consolidate and is starting in my school, EVSU, which is good ‘coz a lot of students are still coming because of enrollment. We are aiming to win 250 people within this month. This Friday, we’ll have a seminar about consolidation so we’ll know more of what to do. Well, personally, this will be my first time to be exposed to such things like evangelizing/consolidating. But Im sure it’ll be exciting! And we’re going to hold an event this June. A “Back to school” event for youth :) Our team is so excited about this. But of course, without God’s grace, we can’t do all this things :D So, AJA AJA guys! God’s going to bring us to victory!
Hi nekai, Good afternoon my dear. Just want to deliver the message of God..
God love you so much niks, He wants to be more closer to you as in too close.He wants to have an intimate relationship with you, He expect more and more hungriness from you, more prayers, and transparency. why? because He wants to know every detail of your life..He really want you so badly right now. in short, QUALITY TIME!
FOCUS is one of the main message that God wants to tell you.
He wants you to focus and depend on Him, truly DEPEND ON HIM..
God really care so much of your life as in personal life…
that He expect you to lay everything to Him ; your cares, your worries, and your concerns…
God said, I’m always here for you my princess.
I love so much that no human can compare my love to you.!
Just keep on, press on and move forward despite of circumstances , wonderings, and distraction..
-you are so blessed nekai that God wants you to use it for the glorification of His name..
lastly… may pahabol pa hi Lord…
you can do all things my dear If you depend on Him.
First, I would like to thank God for using someone to tell me His message. To use other people to remind me of things. And I think this message is just exactly what I needed to know.
QUALITY TIME. That’s what God wants from me. He wants me to spend time with Him. He wants me to tell Him everything Im going through. Everything that He needs to know. But I think, I don’t give importance to that. I ran from it and just ignore it. Ignore that God is there willing to listen to me and hear from me. Willing to carry every concerns, burdens, worries and problems I have. Waiting for me to call upon His name and tell Him every tiny little things of my life. And with this running and hiding from Him, I sometimes feel ashamed of myself. Feeling like Im not worthy to face Him and talk to Him.
But what is so amazing, is despite of all those things, still, God cares for me. He still search and seek for me. And His love for me is deeper than the deepest ocean and bigger than the blue sky. And He said that He has still so much to give and also share with me ~
PS: What a great feeling it is to be called His PRINCESS!
I don’t know who you are. I don’t know where you’ll be traveling from when we finally meet. I don’t know what you’ll look like when you smile. I don’t know what your voice will sound like when I’ll look over at you in the morning from across the bed.
reconnecting with my Elementary classmates again :D We’re having a small chit-chat in Facebook and everyone’s setting a meet-up date and I just can’t wait to see all of them! Hopefully before classes starts.
There really are people who will walk into your life that even for just a short period of time, they'll leave an impact to you and leave you lessons to learn.
I met these three kuya’s from Manila. They’re named Kuya Herald, Kuya Oliver and Kuya Raymond. They’re evangelists and came to teach us, youth in church, about consolidation. We didn’t really got the chance to know more about each other because we were busy lately about the crusade. But they’re really nice. They’ll stay for just a week with us. And they’re leaving for Manila on Saturday.
Just this night, we had a surprise despedida party for them and they were really surprised. We had games, comical skit, picture taking, giving out T-shirts to them with our messages on it, and all. It was fun but at the same time sad ‘coz they’ll soon be leaving. But knowing that even for just a short period of time, we learned a lot from them. They always keep on encouraging us. I, personally, didn’t really talked to them that much but when they were saying their messages for us, I was teary-eyed (sounds cheezy, noh). I don’t really know but these three guys really made an impact to me and to other youth people in church :)
I grew up being a dog person and I prefer dogs over cats. One reason is because I don’t like cats attitude. They’re unfriendly. And I think they’re creepy. Cats makes me sneeze. Their creepy eyes and meows freaks me out. Especially when they keep on following me. It’s like they’ll transform into a real huge monster that’s going to eat me up!
Can I call you babe? May I be the one you fall asleep on the phone with, every single night. Can I be the only person that fills in the spaces in the between your fingers. Be the one and only guy that touches your soft lip. Be your Knight and Shining Armor, and Mr. Right? Slow dance as I hold you're hips. Can we be the couple to just rent a movie and watch movies all day. Be the couple to scream while we playing games. Be the one's to enjoy a starlit night and fall asleep on the grass. Fall on my shoulder and forget the past. Let me be the one to make you laugh when you're sad. Let me be drake and say you're the best I ever had.
