I love this hymn~ I remember 박재훈 목사님 came to visit me in the hospital when I had appendicitis in grade 2, and he gave me $50. I was *beaming*…then I gave it to my omma. =P
He is such a talented composer, and he’s the cutest 목사님 in the whole world…=*) The lyrics are GOLD…sing it wit me now!
지금까지 지내온 것 (#301 in your 찬송가)
v.1: 지금까지 지내온 것 주의 크신 은혜라 한이 없는 주의 사랑 어찌 이루말하랴/ 자나 깨나 주의 손이 항상 살펴주시고 모든 일을 주안에서 형통하게 하시네
v.2: 몸도 마음도 연약하나 새힘받아 살았네 물붓듯이 부으시는 주의 은혜 족하다/ 사랑없는 거리에 나 험한 산길 해멜때 주의 손을 굳게 잡고 찬송하며 가리라
v.3: 주님 다시 뵈올 날이 날로 날로 다가와 무거운 짐 주께 맡겨 벗을 날도 멀잖네/ 나를 위해 예비하신 고향 집에 돌아가 아버지의 품안에서 영원토록 살리라
Oh dear…perhaps eating turkey leftovers at 11pm when I have a paper to write was not the wisest idea…I think it travelled STRAIGHT to my eyelids - oh my ‘lanta~! T_T
Today was a nice, relaxing day - sleeping in and then napping some more, I am in the process of conducting a well-strategized attack on the little white canker sore enemies in my mouth. “Cankers be GONE! Hiiii-YA!”
Today I am writing a paper on Ethics and anaylzing the idea of moralscapes = the landscape of our moral thought. This Ethics course has me continually switching between deeply interested and deeply confused, but it’s definitely an intriguing course. I just wish the prof was a better lecturer. And she kinda has these crazy eyes that makes me feel unnerved when I’m looking into her eyes as she lectures =( Last week I kept counting down minutes to Mr.H in class - what a naughty student I am! These days, although I only have three courses, I keep wanting to just bury myself in the bed and just sleep and relax my days away at home. The Han residence is proving to be a little TOO comfortable, and I feel less motivated than ever to hit the books. But NO! I must pray and keep a heavenly perspective…
While I was reading 2 Samuel today, I was struck at how commited David was at consistently going to God for guidance. When he was about to make a decision, he always went to “inquire of the Lord” before moving into action. I suppose that’s one facet of what it means to be “after the Lord’s heart”, eh? “Lord, help me to consider what it is that You desire before I consider my own desires. Please give me eyes that can see You and a heart that hungers after You at all times. I am so weak and lazy without Your Holy Spirit, so please do not pass me by today, but keep me close to You, In Jesus’ name…”
Mr.H scrubbed the floors with a gul-lae today, and they are now squeaky clean. His war is always against the dust balls and all my numerous hairs that have strayed from my head. “Ggool, look at this hairball…*serious face*. I’m very disturbed and worried about you” =) I remember how my Abba told me - while sweeping the floors at 88 Bernard - that Mr. H would be shocked at my hair loss…and he was right! haha~ “…stay put, little hairs…I need you…” =(
12 already??!! Back to Ethics and beautiful moralscapes~ @_@
So many, many things to be thankful for…but most of all, what a friend, Lord, and Saviour we have in Jesus! And I have so much evidence all around me, living and breathing in the flesh and blood, to remind me of God’s goodness. As all these lovely friends and family of mine show me their love and their wonderful hearts, I am reminded of how faithful and wonderful my Lord is…all thanks to God for the gift of salvation and the faith to live in anticipation of the Kingdom to come~
Yesterday was such a wonderful day. Although it was quite the warzone in our cozy little kitchen, all the food got cooked and all the empty bellies got filled, and the night was filled with the warm love of our dear friends. What would I do without my girls!?! They make me laugh till I tear and smile till my chubby cheeks start to feel slightly numb - in a good way, of course! I recall hearing a sermon at church a couple of weeks ago about the kind of friendships that we must strive to nurture as followers of Christ, and I left church that week with my heart feeling like it was going to BURST, because I was reminded of all my wonderful ladies. I have been so blessed to find not just one, but TWO handfuls of bossom buddies that I can love wholeheartedly and that make me feel so loved, unconditionally. What a friend I really have in Jesus, that He would send me such friends…
And my husband?…=) Lord, only You know all the reasons why I am so thankful for Mr.H. I can only pray that YOU will be the one to bless him ten-fold for all that he has done to consistently be a reflection of Your love in my life. Thank You, Jesus, for my nampyun!!
Within the last 24 hours, I’ve spoken to all my beloved family members - my two mommies, my abba, and my dear obba. I realize how spoiled I have been with love, and how I can only truly show my gratitude to God by sharing and multiplying all that love that has been poured into my life by my family. Oh how I miss them all! Today, my heart is in Korea, Vancouver, and China…Lord, bless and keep my whole family and reveal more of Your grace and goodness to them with each day~
