Today's The Day.


My life is changing every second
I like who I've become.
The hardships and hell
have gone over well
and now I see the sun.
tomorrow's an hour.
A minute.
A second away.
And nothing holds a light to
the beauty of today.
Today's the day.
I'm my own woman
with no one else around.
I now hold my head high
and look at the birds
no longer at the ground.
My heart isn't healed
but it's on it's way
and with happiness
and joy I can say
that finally, 
FINALLY
today's the day.

Friends.


That friend you can talk about anything to. 

We all had our pasts, and some habits die hard. Habits and pasts you are ashamed of. 

To have someone you can be vulnerable to, who won't judge when you trip and fall. 

Someone who knows all these taboos about you and stays the same.

I have that someone. No, in fact, more than one!

How blessed!

Renungan Hari Minggu.

Bacaan 1: Yesaya 8:23b - 9:3
Mazmur: 27:1,4,13-14; R:1a
Bacaan 2: 1 Korintus 1:10 - 13,17
Bacaan Injil: Matius 4:12-17

Ketika mendengar bahawa Yohanes Pembaptis telah ditangkap, Yesus mendengar, bahawa Yohanes telah ditangkap, menyingkirlah Ia ke Galilea. Ia meninggalkan Nazaret dan diam di Kapernaum, di tepi danau, di daerah Zebulon dan Naftali, supaya genaplah firman yang disampaikan oleh nabi Yesaya: "Tanah Zebulon dan tanah Naftali, jalan ke laut, daerah seberang sungai Yordan, Galilea, wilayah bangsa-bangsa lain, -bangsa yang diam dalam kegelapan telah melihat Terang yang besar dan bagi mereka yang diam di negeri yang dinaungi maut, telah terbit Terang." Sejak waktu itulah Yesus memberitakan: "Bertobatlah, sebab Kerajaan Surga sudah dekat!" Yesus pun berkeliling di seluruh Galilea; Ia mengajar dalam rumah-rumah ibadat dan memberitakan Injil Kerajaan Allah serta melenyapkan segala penyakit dan kelemahan di antara bangsa itu.



Korban yang diberikan Yesus kepada Gereja-Nya dan umat-Nya adalah korban sekali, dan bukan berkali-kali. Kita selalu ditanya, 'Mengapa orang Katolik meletakkan corpus di salib?'.Ini bukan untuk mengulang perngorbanan, tetapi untuk mengenangkan akan Tuhan kita. Setiap kali melihat Salib, semoga kita mengingat jasa Yesus Kristus yang telah menyelamatkan kita berkat penderitaan, wafat, dan kebangkitan-Nya.

Kristus datang bukan untuk membawa perpecahan meskipun ia mengalami peristiwa tragis dalam hidup sampai wafat-Nya. Sekarang kita menikmati buah penebusan-Nya. Semoga kita sedar untuk terus mewartakan dan menjalankan apa yang diajarkan-Nya. Berjuang menjadi perpanjangan tangan Tuhan setiap hari. Itulah ertinya iman kepada Yesus. Pertaubatan dari cara hidup yang lama dan penuh dosa adalah satu bentuk kesaksian yang nyata. Mulailah dari hari ini.

Ya Tuhan, bantulah aku menyampaikan khabar baik kepada keluarga dan teman-temanku. Semoga aku mulai dengan pertaubatanku yang mahu menjadi sahabat dan tanda kebaikan-Mu bagi mereka. Rahmat Roh Kudus memampukan aku untuk itu. Amen.

Throwback Post?



Over the past two years, I’ve written a lot of draft blog posts that I never published. Most of them are quite personal and rough, but not all of them. So, I decided to post some of those drafts instead of writing a new post.


Why?

Because

Um

Well

 Heck Shika is lazy

As always.


do not really have the time to write posts nicely; basically, posts written with 'enthusiastic effort' and 'infinite labor'. Usually, I endeavour to write posts and organise them neatly. Now, not anymore as I’ve been exceptionally busy in all areas of my life.

Okay fine. We’re all busy! Every one of us. It’s not a very exclusive club. And here’s another reality check: because we’re all busy, no one really cares about how busy someone else is. One way or another, we all make time for what’s important to us. Hence, now I'm focusing more on what truly matters.

I’ve gone through periods of intense, driven productivity; months where everything fell into place, and my goals almost seemed to accomplish themselves. At the other extreme, there have been times in my life where I was completely overwhelmed, burdened by my different projects and responsibilities; frustrated because so many of them not only challenged me, but didn’t matter to me. There were days when I asked myself how did I end up here? How did I end up working on all these things that aren’t who I am, and that don’t represent where I am going?

Okay enough whining and complaining. There are going to be a lot of flashback stories and memories. Please note that. I posted a draft blog post recently, some humans actually freaked out and asked whether I'm okay or nah. (But hey, thanks for caring. How blessed I am to have friends like y'all!) Friends, readers, stalkers, whoever you are. Please read the header of the post and understand that it is a draft blog post; do not just ignore it. THE HEADER OF THE POST, THE TITLE IS NOT THE HEADER. If there's no draft date, then it is not a draft. Know the difference peeps.

I guess, that's just it. I would like to express my sincere gratitude and appreciation to those who actually visit and read my blog posts, especially my loyal readers! Shout out to my good friends: Farah, Sean, Ignatius, Livya, Thiveya and all the HFK buddies! To my blogger friends: rrcherryppie, bettyrose12, The Global Traveller, Betsy Natalie, Mira, Meg, etc. Also to the anonymous readers. Thank you so much! Without you guys, I would have not gotten a single penny. YOU GUYS ARE THE BEST.

Love, 
Shika Hanna.
