I wanna make a list of the places I want to go, and visit them one by one during the holidays alone and bring you along in my mind.
I thought you may like it too.
"I don’t think there’s anything sadder than when two people are meant to be together and something intervenes."

"I hope that someday, somebody wants to hold you for twenty minutes straight, and that’s all they do. They don’t pull away. They don’t look at your face. They don’t try to kiss you. All they do is wrap you up in their arms, without an ounce of selfishness in it."
~ Jenna, Waitress (via conflictingheart)
"Nobody will protect you from your suffering. You can’t cry it away or eat it away or starve it away or walk it away or punch it away or even therapy it away. It’s just there, and you have to survive it. You have to endure it. You have to live through it and love it and move on and be better for it and run as far as you can in the direction of your best and happiest dreams across the bridge that was built by your own desire to heal."
Cheryl Strayed (via genaloowho)
"To love. To be loved. To never forget your own insignificance. To never get used to the unspeakable violence and the vulgar disparity of life around you. To seek joy in the saddest places. To pursue beauty to its lair. To never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is simple. To respect strength, never power. Above all, to watch. To try and understand. To never look away. And never, never to forget."
Arundhati Roy (via dearbuddha)
Motivational Monday is praying for Boston this week!
This one’s for you Boston.
“…Let us not love [merely] in theory or in speech but in deed and in truth…” (1 John 3:18, AMP)
As a believer, we are the hands and feet of Jesus in this earth. God wants to bless people, and He wants to use you and me to do it! He wants to work through us to show His love and compassion and draw people to Himself.
Notice this verse tells us that love isn’t just about our words or thoughts;it’s about our actions. It’s about reaching out and meeting the needs of others. Sometimes, meeting a person’s need is as simple as sharing a smile, a hug or a word of encouragement. Sometimes it’s through material means. Can you pay for someone’s gas or groceries? Can you help them find a solution to a difficult situation? The Bible says that it’s His kindness that leads people to turn toward Him, and there are many ways to show the love of God.
Today, step out and show others what real love is. Every act of kindness is a seed that will produce a harvest in your own life in return. Let your love be in word and in deed and watch how God pours out His blessing in every area of your life!
Blessed Easter Day 2013
I am so blessed today. Nope, I have been so blessed the past 21 years of my life and will still be blessed for the remaining years of my life. :)
Thank you Abba Father for dying on the cross for me and everyone 2000 years ago, bearing all the sins and pain for us. Thank you Abba Father for every single thing that happen to me for the past 21 years. I give You praise for every blessing, suffering and person in my life. :)
The past two months have been rather discouraging as I continuously met problems in my health, school and family life. But thank you Jesus, by your stripes my pain and ache has been healed and by your grace my family financial crisis has been settled temporary. Father, I know that You are still doing great work for my family even if we cannot see it right now, I believe. I believe my God is so great that He will give more than I asked, and blessed my family with abundance as I continue to walk His way and trust in Him. God whatever comes my way, I trust in You.
Thank you Jesus for this blessed 21st birthday. Even though I have not expected anything from anyone, thank you God for the amazing surprise and birthday celebrations that continuously touched my life. :) Even though I could not afford to host a party like others for my 21st, but it turned out to be one of the greatest blessings in my life :) Theresa, Beecheng, Zhen Mei, Shunfu, Hongsheng and gang planned a huge surprise for me at ADM rooftop for me, making me walk up the rooftop with each friend passing me a balloon and a card. It felt like a dream come true when I received each balloon and hugged everyone that turned up. :) God I thank you for all my friends and I pray that You will bless them abundantly and protect them from any heartache or suffering. Father, I also pray for every single friendship that it will continue to grow deeper and deeper and that we are able to cherish each other and go through every ups and downs in our lives together. :)
Thank you Jesus for my BFF Theresa for being the most awesome friend and roomie I can ever ask for. :) I can never express how grateful I am to her and her family for their love and care towards me. They are such amazing and generous people; Father I just pray that You will bless them abundantly as they continue to sow good deeds into others’ lives. :)
Thank you Jesus for Zhen Mei, she is the closest human being to an angel I have ever met. Her kindness, care and love for people around her, strangers or friends is so genuine and pure. Father, I pray that You will safeguard this precious daughter of yours and keep her from any harm or sufferings. She has such a precious heart and amazing character that I believe she will become someone super amazing next time. :) Love the glowing stars that she has painstakingly put up one by one on my hall ceiling, blessing me with nights of good sleep with sky filled of stars above me :) Father, thank you for Zhen Mei, she is the best thing that can happen to my hall life. <3
Thank you Jesus for Shunfu, my amazing brother and soci mate that has encouraged me and touched me so much over the past few months. I am really grateful to meet him and appreciate to have such a dedicated study mate and friend. Father, I pray that You will take care of this son and continue to pour blessings into his life for he has a great and kind heart and will definitely do great thing in life. :) Father, I thank you for this special brother of mine and pray that our friendship will continue to grow deeper and deeper :)
As much as I wish to continue and thank every single person and friend in my life, I have to stop for now and sleep.
Thank you Abba Father for CHC, E371 and my NTU campus friends that made my Christian walk so amazing and full of blessings. :)
God whatever comes my way, I will bear the cross and walk Your way.
Love, Winnie your precious daughter.
