Day 5: My Dream Job

My goal is to create a life I don’t need a vacation from.

quote

Dream Job:

I’d love to spend my life helping others. That’s the highest, purest form of human happiness isn’t it?

I’ve always loved the medical field – the thought of helping to change other people’s lives in little and big ways has always thrilled me. Recently this year, I had an opportunity to volunteer at a three day, free health clinic that was held in Los Angeles. It was amazing to see how many different kinds of people needed help and to see how desperately they needed it! Definitely one of my most favorite memories ever.

So there’s my dream job – kind of obscure, but at least I have an idea lol.

I want to witness for God by helping to change other people’s lives in the medical field :D If that doesn’t work out, I pray that I’m willing to follow His plan for me.

The Voice

It was a gloomy, drab afternoon — the kind that’s just depressing. A veil of darkness slowly began to shroud the thick forest of spiraling trees as a young girl with wispy, long hair wandered on a forlorn path. Her skirt was dusty; her jacket rumpled. She was all alone, unsure of where she was heading.

That girl was me.

A Time for Everything

Wow! Time really flies! Here I am, with only one week left to spend here in Taiwan. After more than a month in this unfamiliar land, I am so ready to go back home to the US. I know I will be leaving behind relatives, delicious food, and fun sights, but home is where the heart is, of course. However, there is a time for everything. Sometimes we must leave the comforts of our home to experience new things and risk new opportunities. Sometimes we must stay in our home and draw closer to our family members.
Today I leave you readers with a wisdom filled passage from the Bible, our light. Read, and meditate on it.

Ecclesiastes 3:1-8

To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;
A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.

Wow…..
As we enter the New Year, keep in mind this passage when it comes to difficult situations. Pray to God, and let Him be your Lead in stormy seas. God bless.

Test of Two Beloved Monsters

“Do you like my back massage?”
“Look at my mask!”
“I need help!”
“Do you want your backpack?”
“Guess what I did in the airplane!”

We were driving around in Taiwan. It was a gloomy, rainy day – and it became even more gloomy when two young boys belonging to our friends jumped into our van. They were…….indescribable!

One Day at a Time

This post is just about my everyday life. Each morning, I pray for help in glorifying God’s Name. But as I go through the day, I find my resolve slowly fading. My homework is so tedious and lengthy, little but important things demand my attention, and my little sister aggravates and provokes me!!! ARRRGHHH!!! In addition, each day, when I awake, I have to repeat the cycle again. Monotonous. VERY monotonous. The same things, the same time, every single day.

Again.

Again.

Again.

But however dreary and drab the day must be, the Bible is a source of comfort. One of my favorites is Ecclesiastes 3:1-8


To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:

 A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;

A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;

 A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;

A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;

A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;

 A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;

A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.


Holding to this, I continue to pray to God, hoping that someday I will be as holy as He. Meanwhile, I will go through each day. One at a time.

Thank you, God.
