Love is Forgiving (^_^)



XXX: I don't understand why you made such decision!(forgiving)

A: It's LOVE~


With the strings of painful (literally and emotianally) events, I've really got to learn from all these. Today, Pastor Kung from China, preached about "What if he's Jesus?" - Matthew 25:31-40

It's basically about those who feed the hungry, shelter the homeless, quench the thirst will be rewarded the right seating. We'll not know what form Jesus will come in, is He the beggar or our discipline teacher? In short, her message is 'Just Do Good'. HE's watching from above, each and every action of ours will be known; especially those little things you did when you are alone.



I find this sermon connects perfectly with the fellowship session conducted by Mei Shan sis. She shared about the story of Jonah. God asked Jonah to share the gospel at the fallen NiNiland, but being disobedient but a faithful servant, he backed away; got into a ship; wrecked; volunteered to be thrown over the ship as God is causing the storm signalling him to go to NiNiland. He was alive despite being in the whale's tummy for 3 days. (Suggested to do further reading of the story at Jonah's book if interested)

Lesson learnt: Seek forgiveness.


Everyone knows the truth that forgiving can bring joy and salvage relationships; but how many of us can actually do that? Last week, I was advised by few friends that to salvage a relationship, we must 'Lay down your pride, and ask for forgiveness' He did, I did; relationship salvaged~ (^_^) He's egocentric, I'm stubborn; doomed relationship. As simple as that?

Thank you to all who's helped/hurt, consoled/cursed, loved/hated, forgiven/grudged against me, I choose to move on
Conclusion: God makes us miserable through conviction to make us joyful through confession.

Interpreting Dreams :)

Do you still dream? And if you do, do you remember your dream? These two days, i've been taking afternoon naps; setting alarm for a 45minx max nap but always ended at 5:45pm, (extra 2 hrs) when chinese uncle is bout to send dinner. anyway, today i remember my dream and i recall my secondary English teacher taught us bout dream; that we should write down our dream if we recalled immediately or we'll forget very soon. I just remember a fragment of it. This is how it goes:

I was walking back from my primary school SRB Chung Hua No:1. The old ice-cream uncle who always brings cheers to children is now replaced by a young adult lady. sadly,she didnt sell the bun icecream i remembered i ordered. so i left the busstop, heading home(i've been walking home after school since my Tadika Sri Keria, Chung Hua No:1 and SMK Kuching High). anyway, as i was walking past the row of houses besides the busstop, i took out my old faithful nokia 6200 and threw it into a house garden,i forgot if i did aim at the duck. yes, i remembered the white coloured duck with yellow beaks; like the ones we draw when we were young. Soon after that throw, suddenly the sunny day glooms. i remember pacing up. as usual, we have to cross the road at the 'big tree' into my house's junction.

but someone, who i didnt realize was accompanyin throughout my walk, overshoot. she's yvonne. (in case u r reading,don't laugh; u've appeared in my dreams, like other friends) but this time, it's only Yvonne, but she overshot, heading straight to civic centre direction, leaving me behind. i have crossed the road when i realized. so i took out my other nokia n78 (lucky i didnt throw this)n called her; she answered, turned back, laughed at herself and crossed the road. we walked home. i remembered the instant i reached home, it started to rain; a very heavy rainpour. watching the sky changes and big droplets coming down, i can't remember what was i thinking that time. i think i remembered dreaming bout my brother. that's when i woke up.

TATA. Msg sis bout this dream n googled up some keypoints. Let's see the interpretation:

Cell Phone
To see or use a cell phone in your dream, indicates that you are being receptive to new information. It also represents your mobility. Alternatively, the dream signifies lack of understanding. Perhaps you are having difficulties getting through to someone.

To dream that you lost your cell phone, represents a lack of communication. You have lost touch with some aspect of your feelings or your Self.�If you find a cell phone, then it symbolizes reconnection and reopened communication.

Personal reflection:
Now i remembered what was i thinking while watching the rainpour. i was thinking of rushing out back to my phone, i want it back; it was a sudden irrational act to throw it away. but in my dream, i didnt go out of my comfort zone,cuz the rain was too heavy and i assumed my phone would be soaked by rain water and definitely spoilt. and yes, recently i've faced some serious communication break down. exactly 7days ago till today.

Rain
To see and hear rain falling, symbolizes forgiveness and grace. Falling rain is also a metaphor for tears, crying and sadness. Alternatively, rain symbolizes fertility and renewal. If you get wet from the rain, then it indicates cleaning from your troubles and problems.

To dream that you are watching the rain from a window, indicates that spiritual ideas and insights are being brought to your awareness. It may also symbolize fortune and love.

To hear rain tapping on the roof, denotes spiritual ideas coming to fruition in your mind.

Personal Reflection:
i need forgiveness now, from a lot of ppl whom i've hurt and caused them to worry. thankfully, time heals n now they no longer call/msg to 'check up'; it is a blessing to have friends esp when one is in need of a shoulder; n in my case, shoulderS :P yes, i've been doubtin bout my SQ last week, thankfully it's not long for Him to hold back my hands :P


Duck
To see ducks in your dream, represent your spiritual freedom (if flying) or the unconscious (if swimming).�They serve as a connection between the spiritual realm and the physical world. Ducks are multi-talented animals in that they can walk, swim and fly. Thus, a duck indicates your flexibility and your ability to blend and adapt in various situations. Alternatively, the dream suggests that you are setting yourself up or being set up for the kill as associated by the phrase "sitting duck". Are you being targeted? Also, the duck may be a pun on "ducking" some issue or situation, instead of confronting it head-on. Consider the phrase, "if it looks like a duck, walks like a duck, quacks like a duck, it's a duck". Some things are too obvious to deny.

To see a white duck in your dream, signifies falsehood and deceit.

To see a two-headed duck in your dream, suggests that you need to be more grounded. You need to thoroughly think through some emotional issue.


Ice Cream
To see or eat ice cream in your dream, denotes good luck, pleasure, success in love and satisfaction with your life. You need to savor the moment and enjoy it. Alternatively, the dream may suggest that you need to cool off and not let your temper get out of hand. On the other hand, the ice cream may be a pun on "I scream". Perhaps there is something that you need to let out.

To dream that you are eating bad or sour ice cream, signifies sorrow, disillusionment, or betrayal.

To see ice cream melt in your dream, symbolizes failure to realize your hopes and desires.

Personal Reflection:
Great! i didn't get to eat the ice cream, meaning i didnt get to enjoy "good luck, pleasure, success in love and satisfaction with your life" Luckily, i didnt get to eat sour icecream nor did it melt, yahoo~ :P

Friend
To see friends in your dream, signify aspects of your personality that you have rejected, but are ready to incorporate and acknowledge. The relationships you have with those around you are important in learning about yourself. Alternatively, dreaming of a friend, indicates positive news.


Girlfriend
To see your girlfriend in your dream, represents your waking relationship with her and how you feel about her.

Reflection:
Lolx, i don't know if this girl-friend or if a guy googled bout his special gf. anyway, i'm glad u turned back :)

Road
To see a road in your dream, refers to your sense of direction and how you are pursuing your goals. If the road is winding, curvy, or bumpy in your dream, then it suggests that you will encounter many obstacles and setbacks toward achieving your goals. You may be met with unexpected difficulties. If the road is dark, then it reflects the controversial or more frightening choices which you have made or are making.�

If the road is smooth and bordered by trees or flowers, then it denotes a steady progress and steady climb up the social ladder. If the road is straight and narrow, then it means that your path to success is going as planned.

To see an unknown road in your dream, represents a path that has not been ventured. You are setting a new precedence for something.

To dream that a threatening creature is on a road, parallels a hostile situation/person you are encountering in your waking life. It is an obstacle that you need to overcome, no matter how intimidating the situation or person may appear.

Reflection:
Geez, shouldnt i be glad that i dreams of the straight road heading home? Humming "I'm going home, to the place where i belong..." not heaven, i don't wanna die just yet; age 8+, after i witness my grandchilDREN's weddding, n mayb SOME great grandchildren, p/s before my husband. :P

Lose
To dream that you lose something, indicates that you may really have misplaced something that you had not realized yet. It may also be a signal for you to clean out and reorganize your life. Perhaps you are overwhelmed and distracted with the hustle and bustle of day-to-day life.�Alternatively, losing something often coincides with a significant life change or waking issue.

On a symbolic note, losing things in your dream suggests lost opportunities, past relationships or forgotten aspects of yourself. Your personal associations to the thing you lose will clue you into the emotional meaning and interpretation of your dream.

Reflection:
I remember my troubled look after i threw the phone away...how can one be so silly to throw a possession which has bring much comfort for the past 6 yrs?? gee, the nokia 6200 is the first thing/phone i bought after my first salary working as a part time tutor after spm :) the first thing i woke up is to reached out to check if the bejeweled her is still safely within my reach; AMen, it is; she got a cuddle from her master :)


Conclusion:
Another long dwindling post without photos (wifi bad,failed to upload) anyway, since i've interpreted my dreams, n somehow 80% of what i should do n whr to focus, the question is: do i hv the courage? Peace be with you all, n me :P
