You’ll know that you miss someone very much
when every time you think of that person, your heart beats faster.
And just a quick warm “Hello” from that person calm you down…
Bottomline : You might have fallen for that person,
just that you have not realise or refuse to admit.

Don’t be too good I will miss you.
Don’t be too caring, I might like you.
Don’t be too sweet, I might fall for you.
It’s hard for me to love you when you won’t love me after all…
Bottomline : A person who makes me loves him/her is actually a person who loves me more than I love him/her.

If someone comes into your life and becomes a part of you but for some reasons he/she couldn’t stay, don’t cry too much… just be glad that your paths crossed and somehow he made you happy even for a while.
Bottomline : Time will tell, If he/she’s yours he/she will come back

Don’t throw your back to love when it’s already in front of you, don’t drive it away from you because if you did, someday you’ll think again why you let love fly away when it was once next to you.
Bottomline : Treasure the one who loves you, it’s not easy to find a person who loves you. It’s always more valuable to have a sincere heart.
The greatest regrets in our lives are the risks we did not take. If you think something will make you happy, go for it. Remember that we pass this way only once. Bottomline : Time don’t wait. If you think you might have found the right one, treasure him/her. Don’t let he/she go away. Don’t let fear hold you back. Give it a try else you might regret later… no one other than yourself knows what can truly make you happy.

Two tear drops were floating down the river. One teardrop said to the other, “I’m the teardrop of a girl who loved a man and lost him. Who are you?”… “I’m the teardrop of the man who regret letting a girl go…”
Bottomline : Nobody will sympathise a person who constantly let chances passes by without making any efforts to salvage. We normally don’t realise how important our loved and closed ones are until they left us, we’ll start reminiscences which results misery.

There are so many stars in the sky but only some are radiant enough to catch your attention. Among those that you chose to ignore is that one star which is willing to continue shining for you, even if your glance remains elsewhere.
Bottomline :
Phrase 1 : The present person who you are with for the time being may/may not be the one you truly love.
Phrase 2 : should a person who knows that he/she can’t be with you for the time being and yet still continue to love you whole heartedly for what you are is touching. Think about it.

It’s so funny how we set qualifications for the right person to love, while at the back of our minds we know that the person we truly love will always be an exception. Bottomline : We are critical especially to the one we like or love because we want them to be the best, constantly seeking for perfection, which should be worked out by both parties in a relationship and not one party alone to shoulder the burden.
Love can make you happy although often times it hurts. But love is only special if you give it to which it’s worth.
Bottomline : If you found someone who truly appreciates you, He/she deserves more of your love.

To love is like playing the piano. First, you play by the rules. Then, you must forget the rules and play from the heart.
Bottomline : Trust is important, to trust a person you like/love must first let the person you like/love trust you. Have confident in yourself and the person who likes/loves you. Never leave them doubts and don’t doubt what he/she has to give.


Pada saat kamu merasa sendiri dan terasing
Ingatlah…. bahwa Tuhan tidak pernah meninggalkanmu sedetikpun

Pada saat engkau letih dan lelah serta menghadapi banyak persoalan dalam hidupmu, Ingatlah bahwa di saat – saat itu Tuhan menggendongmu, menghiburmu dan menyegarkanmu dengan Cinta-Nya

Pada saat engkau berduka , menangis dan merasa sendirian
Ingatlah kalau Tuhan selalu berada disampingmu , memelukmu senantiasa dan menghapus airmatamu dengan penuh kasih

Pada saat engkau merasa tak berguna, sia-sia dan tidak ada seorangpun yang menanggap engkau berharga…
Ingatlah bahwa Tuhan dengan penuh kasih telah memberikan banyak hal dan talenta kepadamu, sekalipun talenta tidak sebesar yang orang lain miliki, dan ingatlah bahwa engkau SANGAT BERHARGA DIMATANYA!!

Pada saat engkau bahagia dan sukacita…
Ingatlah bahwa itu karena cinta-Nya kepadamu

Pada saat engkau merasa damai dan teduh…
Ingatlah bahwa itu semua adalah pengiburan darinya

Dia Yesus……..
Tak pernah sedetikpun meninggalkanmu,
Tak pernah sedetikpun melepaskan pelukanNya darimu
CintaNya padamu lebih dari segala galanya
Hingga …. Ia rela wafat di salib bagimu

Tidakkah engkau merasa bersyukur ?
Tidakkah engkau merasa rindu untuk membalas cintaNya?
Tidakkah engkau merasa malu , betapa banyak yang telah Ia lakukan untukmu dan
betapa Ia sangat mencintaimu dan betapa sering kita menomersatukan urusan-urusan kita
sedang kita tidak pernah menjadikan Dia sebagai satu-satunya penyelamat kita?

Berapa lama lagi kita masih mau menyakiti Dia?…………
Berapa lama lagi kita mau membuat Dia sedih?
Berapa lama lagi kita akan membiarkan Dia menunggu ?

Saudaraku lihatlah…….
Yesus sedang menunggu kita datang kepadan-Nya
Ia berdiri dan merentangkan tangan-Nya, menunggu kita datang kepada-Nya dan rindu untuk memeluk kita

Yesus tersenyum dan memandang kita dengan penuh kasih
Lihatlah pandangan mataNya yang penuh dengan kerinduan dan harapan , kita mau datang padaNya

Janganlah kita berlama-lama lagi membiarkan Yesus menunggu kita
Marilah saat ini juga kita datang kepada-Nya
Marilah saat ini juga kita samut uluran tangan-Nya
Biarlah mulai detik ini kita berjanji kepada-Nya
Untuk membalas cintaNya, untuk tidak lagi membuat Dia bersedih dan terluka, untuk mengutamakan Dia di atas segala galannya

Biarlah mulai detik ini
Kita mau menyerahkan seluruh hidup,hati,jiwa dan roh kita untuk-Nya
Sekarang dan selama-lamanya

But you must REALLY listen. No interrupting, no daydreaming, No planning your response. Just listening.
Be generous with appropriate hugs, kisses, pats on the back and handholds.(Pls use your discretion ) Let these small actions demonstrate the love you have for family and friends.
Clip cartoons. Share articles and funny stories. Your gift will say, “I love to laugh with you.”
It can be a simple “Thanks for the help” note or a full sonnet. A brief, handwritten note may be remembered for a lifetime, and may even change a life.
A simple and sincere,”You look great in red,” “You did a super job” or “Thatwas a wonderful meal” Can make someone’s day. (Just don’t overdo it. Be sincere.)
Sometimes, go out of your way to do something kind. You’ll be surprised that you’ll feel happier than the one you did it for.
There are times when we want nothing better than to be left alone. Be sensitive to those times and give the gift of solitude to others.
The easiest way to feel good is to extend a kind word to someone, really it’s not that hard to say, Hello or Thank You.

Friends are a very rare jewel, indeed. They make you smile and encourage you to succeed.

They lend an ear, they share a word of praise, and they always want toopen their hearts to us.

Show your friends how much you care.
