The supermarket brought back memories

April 21, 2013

Yesterday, I went grocery shopping at a Korean supermarket. Shreds of memories from some years ago, when my best friend Kody had visited the same market with me, rolled back into my mind. I felt as if Kody walked beside me and chatted with me. When I reached the tea section, his words rang loud in my ears as I recalled the moment when he told me the brand of tea he liked.

The market didn’t change much, only the food court was no longer there. I remembered Kody and I had a nice meal at one of the shops.

Things change. Things disappear. But my memories of Kody seem afresh. Though he has gone home to be with the Lord, he still lives within my heart.

Easter Hunt

April 8, 2012

Today is Easter.

On this great event, many people do egg hunts. There is nothing wrong with that. But do we know the true meaning of Easter?

Easter is for Christians to celebrate the Resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ, for He is risen, and He is risen indeed.

Let me ask you this question? Have you done your Easter Hunt yet? What hunt? Egg? Bunny? My answer to my question is Hunt for Christ–the Lamb who sacrificed His life on the Cross for our sins.

Yes, our Lord Jesus Christ is risen indeed. Amen.


He witnessed in his final days

January 12, 2012

Dear friends,

I haven’t written a real article since December 2011 because I have been very busy working on my first Christian romance novel and learning the craft of writing. I am sorry that I haven’t had the time to visit your blogs. Please accept my apology.

Some of you have already known that my very dear friend Kody went home to be with the Lord last October after battling his cancer for a year. He was only 32 on earth. I said this because he still lives in my heart and is enjoying his eternal life in the Kingdom of God, where our Lord Jesus Christ is. Read the rest of this entry »

Until we meet again

November 2, 2011

Dear Kody,

I wish you could receive my letter; I wish you could read my words.

I recall the day you first stepped into our church and worshipped our Lord together. Your visit gave us a lift and we welcomed you into our church family.

I recall the moments we talked about ministries. Your willingness and eagerness to serve the Lord encouraged us so much that I felt my heart leaping with joy.

I recall the times the two of us spent together: we ate out; we shopped; we saw a movie; we attended a Christian concert; … Our friendship grew as dear brothers in Christ.

I recall the day you came over to my home to celebrate Christmas together with my family. Our joyous laughter rang loudly in every corner of my place. The gift that you gave me is still treasured in my cabinet and well kept within my heart.

All these precious moments seem new as if they were now happening before my eyes; all these cherished moments seem fresh as if I were now hearing your voice.

Your physical pain I did not feel; it was the emotional pain that gave me the ache in my heart, the ache so deep and so immeasurable for me to say farewell to you as my dear friend and my dear brother in our Lord Jesus Christ.

You fell asleep in the loving arms of our Lord. You are now dwelling in the room He has prepared for you in His Kingdom.

Until we meet again, I will forever remember your kind face that shone with love, and it still does.

Until we meet again, I will forever remember your tender voice that reflected your warm-heartedness, and it still does.

Until we meet again, I will forever remember our friendship that connected the two of us in Christian brotherhood, and it still does.

Until we meet again, I will forever think of you within my heart.

Romans 6:5 (NIV): If we have been united with him like this in his death, we will certainly also be united with him in his resurrection.


The Lord is my Shepherd

October 3, 2011

Wherever He leads,
I follow;
For His guidance is loving and caring.

Whatever He gives,
I receive;
For His provision is best and abundant.

Psalm 23:1 – The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not be in want.
