A Barber Story

One day, a barber said that he doesn't believe in God. His customer asked him back: "Why do you think like that?"
"Well, look at there, at the street. Tell me, if God does exist, why there are sick people? Why there a lot of people suffer?" the barber said. "If God does exist, there will nobody sick or suffering. I can't imagine that Almighty God let all of those bad things happen to us," he continued.

His customer was quite, she didn't want to argue with him. The barber finished his job and the customer left.
Few moments later, she saw a guy with long and dirty hair. That guy was so messy. She went back to the barber shop and shouted: "You know what? Actually, there is NO barber."

The barber was angry. "How can you say that?! I'm here and I just cut your hair a moment ago!"
"No way! There is no barber. If barber really exist, there will be no guy with long dirty messy hair out there!" said the customer.
"But the barber does exist! It was their own fault. Why don't they come to me? I can fix them up," said that barber proudly.

"THAT'S IT! That's the point!" the customer replied.
"God does exist! But people don't come to Him, people don't search for Him! That's why there are lot of people fall into sickness and pain."

And the barber stunned in silent.

Blueberry Muffin

A muffin is an American English name for a type of bread that is baked in small portions. Many forms are somewhat like small cakes or cupcakes in shape, although they usually are not as sweet as cupcakes and generally lack frosting. Savory varieties, such as cornbread muffins, also exist. They generally fit in the palm of an adult hand, and are intended to be consumed by an individual in a single sitting.

Outside the United States of America, muffin can also refer to a disk-shaped muffin, usually called an English Muffin outside of England. As American-style muffins are also sold in Commonwealth countries, the term muffin can refer to either product, with the context usually making clear which is meant.

There are many varieties and flavors of muffins made with a specific ingredient such as blueberries, chocolate chips, cucumbers, raspberry, cinnamon, pumpkin, date, nut, lemon, banana, orange, peach, strawberry, boysenberry, almond, and carrot, baked into the muffin. Muffins are often eaten for breakfast; alternatively, they may be served for tea or at other meals.

  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour

Jesus Love Us

Last Wednesday I went to a trip called Antiokhia with my friends. We stayed at Gadog, Puncak, West Java, Indonesia for 3 days. There, we met a lot of new friends. We sang a lot songs and danced. It was so exciting. But the important thing was, we listened to a lot of presentations about God and us.
There were some videos on the presentations. I was really touched by those videos.
As soon as I went home, I searched through internet and found this amazing site.

There are many more videos like this at www.donghaeng.net. Praise the Lord :)

Daffodil, March Birthflower

Each month has a flower that symbolizes the month of somebody's birth. Every month has a flower that is sometimes referred to as a Birth Month Flower.
Like people, each birth flower is distinctive – filled with significance and wonderful stories.

The daffodil is the March birth flower. Daffodils have the flower meaning of rebirth, respect, regard and unrequited love. The daffodil is one of the first flowers of spring, therefore it is a symbol of rebirth. The March birth flower, daffodil, is the common English name for all narcissus plants.

Aquamarine

Aquamarine is a blue-green stone that comes from Colombia and Brazil. It has been called "Water of the Sea", because of its color. The name aquamarine is derived from the Latin word aqua, meaning water, and marina, meaning the sea. The aquamarine is the stone of sailors, believing it would be protection for them on water. Folklore says the aquamarine will protect against gossip. It is also said the aquamarine will pick up spirits. It is an excellent stone to use for meditating.

The serene color of aquamarine is said to cool the temper, allowing the wearer to remain calm and levelheaded. Its pale, cool color beautifully complements spring and summer wardrobes. Aquamarine is most often light in tone and ranges from greenish blue to blue-green; the color usually is more intense in larger stones. This gemstone is mined mainly in Brazil, but also is found in Nigeria, Madagascar, Zambia, Pakistan, and Mozambique.

This is one of March Birthstones. My favorite one :)
