"But in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect, keeping a clear conscience, so that those who speak maliciously against your good behavior in Christ may be ashamed of their slander." ~ 1 Peter 3:15-16
Wow... Everything seems to be pressing for my time. School work and Final Year Project, Church commitment, Family and Relationship. Noticed the order of the list of items? It is in the order of increasing enjoyment! But, it's always the first one that takes up a lot of time... Why can't they just make life easier for us students... It's now quarter past midnight, at the time I started, and I haven't finished my readings for the two seminars tomorrow morning! May God grant me mercy.

Anyway, really feel it a bliss to be able to share in the joy and pain of another person in close intimacy, especially one without blood ties. Often we just feel frustrated when someone "laments or complains" about something in our faces. Though I agree that some people just take us as their emotion-venting-machines, but apart for that minority, it is really a privilege to be hearing how the other person is going through in life. It is because they are comfortable with you that they shared their inner feelings with you. Count it blessings if you have someone whom will share his/her joy and pain in life with you! I really thank God for knowing Xiao Juan. Through her, God taught me more things on human relationship than before. Even as she is now going through a difficult time in her workplace, due to some "miscommunication", may God guide her and grant her peace and joy even while working there. All the more, may God help me be the person supporting her in this difficult time. Amen.
