There is no love, without sacrifice.
My sanctification is more vital than my happiness.

A.That I am not my own,1 but belong-body and soul in life and in death—2 to my faithful Savior Jesus Christ.3 He has fully paid for all my sins with his precious blood,4 and has set me free from the tyranny of the devil.

Few things are more popular in the food world than Coca-Cola and Mcdonald’s. It’s funny that this tiny island off the coast of the Morocco would have a better version of these two iconic brands than in the US. -Glass bottles are common, drinks taste better in a glass. Heck even ice water in a glass jar tastes better than the flimsy thin plastic bottles. In the US you pay extra for...
Las Palmas: Some stuff that caught my attention.
European Expresso Coffee: Nothing at a European Cafe is served by means of a spicket. Spicket, that little lever thing you pull on a tin canister to get Sweet Tea at Mcdonald’s or at Starbucks when you ask for a Blonde roast. Las Palmas literally doesn’t have spickets for drinks ever. Orange juice, squeezed to order. European coffee, done to order, expresso machine, no filter,...

It hurts me when I disappoint people.
You do not glorify God only by what you do for God, God glorifies himself through what he does for you. So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God. We forget that “eating and drinking” is receiving from the Lord.

Jeremy Lin the NBA Basketball player that was center of Linsanity nearly half a year ago. He was the poster boy of New York and is now in Houston. This sudden rallying effect of Asians is cultural phenomenon, catalyzed with his success and sudden rise to stardom.

Isn't it strange...?
Isn’t it strange that funerals are soberly awkward and awkwardly sober? Don’t know what to say, it shouldn’t be this way! Isn’t it weird that after years and years of existing that we are still surprised at the passage of time? Wow, you’ve grown up so much. Wow, I’m getting old. Isn’t it strange that we feel bound by space, that we often think about...
