Came across with many quotes about 'Smile' recently.


Life does not always give you reasons to smile,
'He will yet fill your mouth with laughter
             and your lips with shouts of joy' - Job 8:21

A smile is an inexpensive way to change your looks.

This evening I was buying 주먹밥 jumukbap for my dinner. I was telling the ahjuma, '이모님, 마요 많이 주세요..' I was asking her to put more mayonnaise, with a smile :). Normally ahjumas do not appear to be friendly, but this ahjuma smiled back at me. She literally scooped 2 big spoons of mayonnaise, and put more rice on top.
'나 많이 싸 줬어'(I wrapped a big one for you), and then another smile.
You know, she put a smile on my face, not because of the big jumukbap, but because of her smile. Smiles are contagious.
I was thinking, if I did not smile at her, when I was asking for more mayonnaise, would she happily put more mayonnaise and rice on it..? I don't think she would. :)


Just a little smile, ahjuma made my day :D I then ate my jumukbap happily hehe.


Another quote I came across last week, Dena sent it to me.
'Silence - The way to avoid many problems.
Smiles - The way to solve many problems.'


How true it is :)


So SMILE

 
* Inspired by Gloria's profile picture :D I have chubby cheeks too. I think I can write a poem on mine lol

T.R.U.S.T



by Joyce Meyer

For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways...For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts.
—Isaiah 55:8-9

Did you know a lack of understanding of how God does things can wear you out?
If you don't understand His ways, you could end up fighting and resisting things, thinking they are an attack from the devil, when in reality they are an attempt by the Lord to work something good in your life.
You know God does not do bad things. But sometimes you may fail to realize that everything that feels bad to you is not necessarily bad for you.
Reminding yourself that His ways are not your ways will help you trust Him even when your circumstances are hard to understand. As this busy day comes to a close, just put yourself in the hands of almighty God...and rest in the knowledge that He is good and knows what's best.
Sprrinnnggg :D

TGIF :)
This morning, I woke up refreshed. After raining all night, the air seems fresher. 
I love today's devotional topic - Trust God's Ways. It is simple yet hard at times, to fully trust His ways. Before reading the rest of the article, I took a glance at the bible verse, then my dad came online in Skype. Chatted with him for awhile and guess what, he shared the same verse with me. haha. I believe it is not a coincidence. 
God has a message for me this morning. I am someone who does not like uncertainties. So I claim myself as an unadventurous person. I am always troubled by my current situation, which I do not think it will lead me to a good future. 
I always have plans for myself. Not big ones maybe. but being in such situation, such circumstance is absolutely not in my plan. But God does not make mistakes. I have to always remind myself that God is in control of everything.
credits to Dena :)
Maybe I should stop asking why's and how's. Just be still and let God be God, for we cannot always understand His thoughts and ways. 
5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart 
   and lean not on your own understanding; 
6 in all your ways submit to him, 
and he will make your paths straight.
Proverbs 3:5-6 (NIV)

21 Many are the plans in a person’s heart, 
   but it is the LORD’s purpose that prevails.
                                        Proverbs 19:21 (NIV)



My future is in His hands!

当妈妈已经21年了, 一点都不简单.
谢谢您, 为我们4个所做的一切!
谢谢您的呵护
谢谢您的爱护
谢谢您的细心
谢谢您的领导
我想, 1000个, 10000个'谢谢', 也不能表达我对你的感恩之心,
因为您为我们做的, 太多太多了..

我能祝福您的,有限.
可是我知道, 上帝能祝福的, 会是超乎我们所求所想.
您每天都在我的祷告里.

我很感谢上帝赐给我最棒,最好的妈妈.
我不求上帝赐您荣华富贵, 只求神继续地祝福您健康的身体.
我相信, 上帝会做奇妙的工作, 我相信神迹会发生.
我爱您, 可是我知道, 上帝比我还要更爱您.

'亲爱的阿爸天父,  我谢谢你, 赐给我最好的妈妈,
这几年来, 她所为我们做的, 你都看到, 你都晓得,
求神, 不管在家庭上, 健康上, 人际关系上, 你的事工上,属灵生命上..都大大地祝福她.
我爱她, 可是你更爱她. 在她感到无助的时候, 帮助她, 扶持她, 带领她.
求神你差派你的天使天君围绕着她, 保护着她.
看顾她的脚步, 使她不管在做什么事上,都能做你的见证.
感谢神,一直以来都这么地爱她, 保护她.
我这样祷告, 乃是奉靠主耶稣基督的名祷告, 阿们!'



Love you lots!
Blessed Mother's Day!
May God continue to keep you and bless you!
