Towel Hanger by Tienny The

Wet towels hanging on
Hanging poles
Too close together
Sipped water hard to evaporate
Too wet
Dry slowly

Wet towels hanging on
Hanging poles
Separate further
Water evaporates faster out of
Wet towel
Dry faster

Drowned in living out the word of God’s Word
Or
Living in the hot and dry desert of selfishness

Drowned in the lake of sins
Or
Living holy life and dry from sins

Wisp

Wisp

What and who is the work in slow progress?
Humans are.
Does the progress lead to
Good attitudes, actions & behaviour
Or
Wrong attitudes and actions & behaviour?
Each of us is like a strand in a rope
In the midst of differences, God loves us
His love helps us to correct ourselves for His kingdom
Our contributions help in expanding His Kingdom
Kingdom of salvation filled with peace.
What is slowing us down in our growth in our faith in our Lord Jesus Christ?

An Over-Exert Lady

Posted on
Though a slow learner girl, hardworking is one of her traits. A motto, “I can’t do it, but I must overcome it and able to do it!” starts when she was drowned into a swimming pool at the age of three.
During her schooldays, mathematics is one of her favourite subjects with Chemistry comes second. She dislikes subjects that need to be memorised. Geography and history are the hardest subjects for her due to the need to remember the map and year.
As years passed by, it was the time for her to study diploma in Computing. Programming module is the hardest module to understand because she couldn’t grasp the logic behind it. But upon her cousin’s patient guidance, she came to love it because she could comprehend the logic. In order to avoid the selective memorisation modules during her bachelor’s studies, she chose the programming selective modules.
Undaunted by her drowned experience, she persistently learn how to swim from her father in a warm water swimming pool with her siblings. Believing herself to be able to master the swimming frog strokes, by faith she jumped twice into the adult section of the swimming pool. Though drowned, but she managed to keep herself afloat. Thank God for His mercy for always sending someone to save her. Ten years later, she is able to swim well until today. With that, she is very delighted and satisfied. Then she is still learning other types of swimming strokes.
Finally, during her marriage life she implements her motto upon buying a $24 Antonius four drawer container for household, she bought it at Ikea around Tampines since she was nearby attending a toy workshop. Without knowing how it looks like, she immediately bought it only to find out that the delivery charge is $50 after make the payment. She tied and carried it all the way to Expo without informing her husband for assistance. Upon reaching there, he was shocked to see the drawers. In the end, they couldn’t buy a lot of baby food. Moreover, she lost her puppet’s eye and an arm. Only after shower, her shoulders, back, and ankles were aching. These lasted for a few days. This is the most painful experience, but also a lesson for her not to over-exert herself.
So the moral of the story is
Though forcing oneself is strength, but it is also a weakness.
Your own strength can become your own weakness, but your weakness will also turn out to be strength.
This story is based on a true story.

A Picky Husband

Posted on
A wife seldom cooks food with oil due to her concern to eat healthily. So also seldom cook fried food. A dish of steamed tofu, steamed fish, and even baked prawn without greasing oil. Everyday, she drinks a cup of low-fat with high-calcium milk.
She is quite an opposite of her husband who loves to eat tasty food without considering whether the ingredients will affect his well-being. He hates milk and refuses to take vitamin pills. Her son states that her mum cooking deteriorates. All day, he comments the food’s taste is not salty enough and even not sour enough. Finally, he participates in the kitchen preparation. He remarks that in order to make a tasteful and refined dish, there is no need to bother whether the consumed food is harmful for the body. He even laughs her for always drinking milk, but his body is stronger than her though he smokes.
One day, his sore throat worsens a lot until he is scared causing him to stop smoking. Around one month later, he doesn’t feel well and decides to take a full body medical check up. He brings his wife along to do the same as him. One week later, the report shows his bone calcium is lacking and mild high blood pressure. It is quite a contrast with his wife whose bone calcium is high and her hereditary diabetes is under control. Ultimately, he forces himself to gulp vitamins and sometimes milk.
The moral of the story is
Stop criticising people.
Listen to advises.
Reflect your own words and actions before criticising others.
Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath
                                                                                                                  (James 1:19 KJV)
