A bun with eyes and sausage that looks like an octopus

Sometimes life may be difficult, anything that happens can drag you down; job, friends, family, political environment, health, boyfriend, weather…whatever, whenever you are in a bad mood.

Me, too! But on the other hand, I have a special gift from God, I feel happy easily whenever I  see any ‘face’ without nose or even mouth, I am joyful with laughter. I don’t know why? may be they are just so cute? so true and direct? looks like simple-minded.

This morning when I finished my Sunday service, I went into a boulangerie and met this ‘Mr Octopus’ 章魚包,  original I thought it’s weird to have octopus filling inside a bun, but it seems ‘he’ really wanted me to bring him home, you see? his eyes :D , so I got him. When I put him onto my plate, I know I have to do something before ‘killing’ him, and this was the picture that I would like to dedicate to Mr Octopus for having fun with me in this rainy day without ‘Justice’!

Thank you for bring me joy, even it’s only for a while, you make me resume my energy and hope to carry on, tomorrow is another fresh new day :D

Oh! by the way, guess what is actually inside? I am 100% correct: A simple-minded of a few shredded cheese, that’s all :D


The Tapestry Poem

I would like to share this with you, a wonderful poem selected by Pauline, our team member of "pastor Au + 7 pebbles" for a special study group  in our church.

"The Tapestry Poem"was originally written by Grant Colfax Tullar (1869-1950)
Then being shared by writer Corrie Ten Boom(1892-1983) in the title of "The Weaver".
This poem is so meaningful, being loved & broadly shared many many times; 
and I'm pleased to share it again in my blog, wish you like it, tooMy life is but a weaving

My life is but a weaving       我的生命
Between my God and me      是主與我編織的掛毯
I cannot choose the colors    我不能選擇顔色
He wealth steadily              主在編織引領
oft''times He weaveth the sorrow
Oft' times He weaveth the sorrow;    主常常編織悲傷;
And I in foolish pride                    我愚昧驕傲
Forget He sees the upper                 忘了主看到正面
And I the underside                      而我只看到底面
not til the loom is silent
Not til the loom is silent         直到織機無聲
And the shuttles cease to fly   機梭停止穿梭
Will God unroll the canvas    主會打開掛毯
And reveal the reason why     展現讓我明白看見
the dark threads are as needful
The dark threads are as needful      按照主的設計
 In the  weaver's skilful hand         深黑色的線
 As the threads of gold and silver    在熟練織工的手中
 In the pattern He has planned       和金銀線同讓需要
he knows, he loves, he cares
He knows, He loves, He cares;    主知道, 主愛, 主在乎;
Nothing this truth can dim.      這個真理從沒變.
He gives the very best to those   誰願順服祂主權
Who leave the choice to Him     主為誰留美好賞賜

P.S. - thanks Pauline for the beautiful translation so we can share with more others :D



智者、旅人 The Wise man said...

The Wiseman said

A tourist who was visiting a small village approached the house of a well-known wise man, and he was surprised to see that he lived in a small, humble room filled with books. The only pieces of furniture were a bed, a table, and a chair.

 “Where is the rest of your furniture?” the tourist asked.
 “And where is yours?” the wise man answered back. 
“Mine?” responded the tourist, surprised. “I’m only here for a short time.”
“Me too,” said the wise man.


從信仰的角度,智慧源於我們信靠的神~敬畏耶和華是智慧的開端,認識至聖者便是聰明!(箴言九章10節)人的智慧實在沒法與創造我們的神相比,這是合理不過的; 能夠認識並信靠神,自然能尋到智慧的根源,這也是我們的福氣。那麼,在還沒有認識神之前,是否也可以活得智慧一些而不是愚妄地渡日呢? 





Four Seasons

Autumn ...
forest become silence
color begins to faint
air is dry
life is grey
open your eyes
something above
stretch your arms
a Gift to Receive

here & there in forest
everything in motion
wind that blows to deliver
signs of love encounter
open the gift for you
the always special you
any message to tell?
any breakthrough to act!

aroma of the forest
life of the triumph
ready for the blossom
can't stop the movement
fly to Explore
chase the light
you'll never know
if you don't go

it seems the end
forest back to death...again
it's a cycle of no control
we should only follow
 the seasons of nature
a Creator who rule
Embrace your life in Him
& you'll be free

Transparent Integrity

Glass milk bottle reflects beautiful pattern under the sunlight


Whenever a sunny day, there is always a wonderful moment in the afternoon for light to play with shadow, they attracts me, so I stop working to join them for a while, usually not a while but long enough for me to think of something that we've missed like...transparent integrity!

I forget where have I learned these wordings from, a book may be; but they were written on a post-it which pinned on my notice board since 2016. The shadow play in this afternoon reminds me of it, the transparency that has to be as crystal clear as this, I think, as a person, a human being...

I wish I won't lost mine!

7 in Creation - Seventh Day

7 in creation - Seventh Day

1. Thus the heavens and the earth were finished,
and all the host of them.
2. And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made;
and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.
3. And God blessed the seventh day,
and sanctified it: 
because that in it he had rested from all his work 
which God created and made.

 1. 天地萬物都造齊了. 
2. 到第七日,  神造物的工已經完畢,
就在第七日歇了祂一切的工, 安息了.
3. 神賜福給第七日, 定為聖日, 
因為在這日, 神歇了 祂一切創造的工, 就安息了.

7 in Creation - Sixth Day

24. And God said,
Let the earth bring forth the living creature
after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, 
and beast of the earth after his kind:
and it was so.
25. And God made the beast of the earth after his kind,
and cattle after their kind,
and every thing that creepeth upon the earth
after his kind:
and God saw that it was good.
26. And God said,
Let us make man in our image, after our likeness:
and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea,
and over the fowl of the air,
and over the cattle, and over all the earth,
and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
27. So God created man in his own image,
in the image of God created he him;
male and female created he them.
28. And God blessed them, 
and God said unto them,
Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth,
and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea,
and over the fowl of the air,
and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
29. And God said, Behold, 
I have given you every herb bearing seed,
which is upon the face of all the earth, 
and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed;
to you it shall be for meat.
30. And to every beast of the earth, 
and to every fowl of the air,
and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth,
wherein there is life, 
I have given every green herb for meat: 
and it was so.
31 And God saw every thing that he had made,
and, behold, it was very good.
And the evening and the morning
were the sixth day.  

24. 神說: "地要生出活物來, 各從其類;
牲畜、 昆蟲、 野獸, 各從其類."
25. 於是,  神造出野獸, 各從其類;
牲畜, 各從其類; 地上一切昆蟲, 各從其類.
26. 神說: "我們要照着我們的形像, 按着我們的樣式造人,
使他們管理海裏的魚、 空中的鳥,
地上的牲畜和全地, 並地上所爬的一切昆蟲."
27.  神就照着自己的形象造人,
28. 神就賜福給他們, 又對他們說:
"要生養眾多, 遍滿地面, 治理這地;
也要 管理海裏的魚、 空中的鳥, 和地上各樣行動的活物."
29. 神說: "看哪! 我將遍地上一切結種子的菜蔬,
和一切樹上所結有核的果子, 全賜給你們作食物.
30. 至於地上的走獸和空中的飛鳥,
31. 神看着一切所造的都甚好.

Alone is not lonely

scene of a light up room in a building
There's a difference between lonely and being alone ... quote from LUCKY

You may still feeling lonely 
even if you are in a party, 
with friends, or 
being occupied by tons of task.....
it's time for you to be alone.

Everyone needs time to be alone, 
but it doesn't mean you are lonely. 
You can find your best moment, 
your place 
where nothing can interrupt 
your thought, 
how nice it will be!
