The Choosing of the Seven

The prayer series

Dear brothers and sisters,

I comment in Acts 6:1-7 – The Choosing of the Seven.

Acts is the fifth book of the New Testament, after the four Gospels. Acts tells things that apostles of Jesus Christ did after Jesus was executed. Acts 6 means Chapter 6 of Acts.

Prayer 685

The prayer series

Jesus,

I want to try play this thing at our kitchen
but my mom is at home,
she could scold me.
So please soothe her heart.

I play only in 7 minutes,
so please keep her calm in 7 minutes.

Only 5 minutes left…

Only 3 minutes left…

Only 1 minutes left…

Yeah, done!
And my mom has said nothing about what I’ve been doing.

Thank you, Jesus.

Amen.

Sisters and giving birth

Dear sisters,

Don’t worry about your time to give birth.

Don’t worry about things such as: When should I give birth? People say I should give birth before I’m 35 years old, however I don’t even have a lover yet. I love working, so I don’t want to give birth now; or, I love my lover but I don’t want to give birth now; or I want to discover the world and myself, so I don’t want to give birth now… So what should I do? Should I have my children?… Đọc tiếp Sisters and giving birth

Prayer 684

The prayer series

Jesus,

I want to build big factories processing agricultural products.
I want to focus on fermented foods and drinks
such as fruit wine, fish sauce, fermented vegetables…

Fermentation has been a main way to preserve food
and increase the value of agricultural products.

I believe microorganisms will help us
as they have helped us for thousands of years.

I want to sell goods all over the world.
Our products are clean, natural and organic.
Good for human and environment.

Please give me your talent and diligence.

I love you, Jesus.

Amen.

Jesus,

I want to build free schools for the poor and ethnic minority.
Freedom from kindergarten to university.
Freedom from tuition to all bare necessities of life.

Schools are always near their house.
When children live near with their parent, children will learn better. Đọc tiếp Prayer 683

Work like you don’t need money

Dear brothers and sisters,

“Work like you don’t need money,
Love like you’ve never been hurt,
Sing like no one is listening,
Dance like no one’s watching,
And live like it’s heaven on earth.”

Mark Twain (November 30, 1835 – April 21, 1910), was an American writer, humorist, entrepreneur, publisher, and lecturer.

Living with life as it is

Dear brothers and sisters,

Every time a bad thing happen to our world or country or friends or family or ourselves, we often try to explain.

We often try to explain all the suffering, evil, torture, destruction and hunger. We often try to explain with our formulas, religion or whatever things we can think of. However, no explanation can explain away all bad things.

We can’t explain away all bad things. Bad thing always exists, and no explanation can explain away all bad things. Đọc tiếp Living with life as it is

Tenderness

Dear brothers and sisters,

The thing I love from Buddha and Jesus is tenderness.

Buddha and Jesus are tender.

Their tenderness makes my heart melt into water. My mind wants to cling to them. My soul totally submits to them.

Their tenderness heals my heart. Every time my heart is unhappy, I look at them, their tenderness comforts my soul. My headache goes away. I sleep well, I work well, I love people and love life as nothing happens.

Buddha and Jesus are tender. And Buddha and Jesus are tender with me.

Every time I lose my footing, they pull me back, they don’t let me go astray, and they hold my hand. They lead me in their way again. They are patient with me.

Oh, Buddha and Jesus, my sweet and tender love, I love you. I want to be one with you. Please fill my soul with your tenderness so that I may love you tenderly every moment of all my life.

This is the thing I love from Buddha and Jesus, perhaps the thing I love most.

Have a tender day.

China is weaponizing water and worsening droughts in Asia

Its dams are provoking regional tensions, so Beijing needs to reconsider its policy

Asia, the world’s driest continent in per capita terms, remains the center of dam construction, with more than half of the 50,000 large dams across the globe. The hyperactivity on dams has only sharpened local and international disputes over the resources of shared rivers and aquifers.
