Time & Love Quote

 

 

 

 

 

 

TIME is very slow for those who wait,

very fast for those who are scared,

very long for those who lament,

very short for those who celebrate,

 

But, for those who LOVE,

 

TIME IS ETERNITY.

(William Shakespeare)

Love is Service

 

Charity work is one of the tasks that I always wanted to do for a very long time. Due to the work demand and long working hour, I always put the charity at the back of my head. Until recently, I managed to find the time for this mission task.

 

The charity that I participate is held by the Church of St. Francis. The IHD Ministry is holding a “Soup Kitchen” every Saturday. They cook, buying food or groceries for the needy, providing medical care and medication, visiting, talking, listening, sharing and help the poor.

 

I pay a visit to their Saturday “Soup Kitchen” today. The church member cooked a big pile of fried rice and making some soft-drink for the 70 over Myamar refugee children.

 

 

The children are all well-discipline. The elder one helped to arrange the eating place for the small one. Each child is queuing and taking their turn to their sitting place. Do not flight over food or making loud noise. I am so in touch to see all these well-trained kids. After eat, they placed the plate to the designated place and help to clean up the place.

 

Even though, those children are not giving the best in their life, but I can see the joys, happiness and satisfaction in their face. Not like our children, do not know what “suffer” means. Giving them fried rice, but demanding for McD or KFC. Not these children here, a plate of fried rice for them is so priceless.

 

This visit does open my eyes and perspective. Happiness doesn’t means you have to be rich, living in big house and eating big fish & meats everyday. A simpler meal may means a huge happiness for a hunger man.

 

 

Appreciate what you have now. Extend your help to those that needy. It is not just the money you donate, your present to be with them can really makes a huge different. You will experience the inner joys and light within you. Trust me, I experienced this myself. 

 

 

 

Love cannot remain by itself – it has no meaning.

Love has to be put into action, and that action is service.

With Love everything is Possible

I have received this beautiful & increable love story from one of my friend. Would like to share this with you.

An incredible love story has come out of China recently and managed to touch the world. It is a story of a man and an older woman who ran off to live and love each other in peace for over half a century.   

      The 70-year-old Chinese man who hand-carved over 6,000 stairs up a mountain for his 80-year-old wife has passed away in the cave which has been the couple’s home for the last 50 years.

Over 50  years ago, Liu Guojiang a 19 year-old boy, fell in love with a 29 year-old widowed  mother named Xu Chaoqin.. 

In a twist worthy of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, friends and relatives criticized the relationship because of the age difference and the fact that Xu already had children.

At that time, it was unacceptable and immoral for a young man to love an older woman.. To avoid the market gossip and the scorn of their communities, the couple decided to elope and lived in a cave in Jiangjin County in Southern ChongQing Municipality. 

In the beginning, life was harsh as hey had nothing, no electricity or even food.  They had to eat grass and roots they found in the mountain, and Liu made a  kerosene lamp that they used to light up their lives.  

Xu felt that she had tied Liu down and repeatedly asked him, ‘Are you regretful? Liu always replied, ‘As long as we are industrious, life will improve.’

In the second year  of living in the mountain, Liu began and continued for over 50 years, to  hand-carve the steps so that his wife could get down the mountain easily.
Half a century later in 2001, a group of adventurers were  exploring the forest and were surprised to find the elderly couple and the  over 6,000 hand-carved steps.  Liu MingSheng,  one of their seven children said, ‘My parents loved each other so much, they  have lived in seclusion for over 50 years and never been apart a single day.  He hand carved more than 6,000 steps over the years for my mother’s  convenience, although she doesn’t go down the mountain that  much.’

     

 

The couple had  lived in peace for over 50 years until last week. Liu, now 72 years, returned  from his daily farm work and collapsed. Xu sat and prayed with her husband as  he passed away in her arms. So in love with Xu, was Liu, that no one was able  to release the grip he had on his wife’s hand even after he had passed away.  

 

 

‘You promised me you’ll take care of me, you’ll always be with me until the day I died, now you left before me, how am I going to live without you?’

 

 

 
 

 

 
 
 
 

 

Xu spent days softly repeating this sentence and touching her husband’s black coffin with tears rolling down her cheeks.

In 2006, their story became one of the top 10 love stories from China , collected by the Chinese Women Weekly. The local government has decided to  preserve the love ladder and the place they lived as a museum, so this love story can live forever. 

  

 

My thought:

How many couple in today world willingly to scarify everything for “LOVE”? There are many obstacles & difficulties during the love journey. From the dating to the marriage, till the first born of child to family & relative member from different background… how many can truly conquered all the differentiate till the end?

I have experienced a painful love journey in my life. It always easy says than doing it. You need both party to work hand in hand and working till the happy end.

You have any incredible & real-life love story to share?

Love, Hate and Fear

 

Why Love?

Love cannot remain by itself, it has no meaning.

Love brings you joys, happiness, and at time forgetting who you are.

Love makes all things beautiful.

 

 

Why Hate?

When Love turned sour, hate conquered love.

When Hate controls love, you lose your mind, and at time forgetting who you are.

Hate makes all things dull and ugly.

       

 

 

 

 

Why Fear?

When Hate gone, fear come.

Fear helps one to live in a protective cell, and at time forgetting where you are.

Fear makes all things unattractive.
