This is my first entry for this album, which is designed for "The Thinking Woman" (Man is invited too).
Ok... A Moment for Tea #1:
After reading Dostoevsky, Rizal, and Coelho, and watching one too many Asian dramas, I understood that human beings crave for passion. There must be something that we can passionately live for. Or in many cases, *someone* we can passionately live for.
We are playing a part in the most passionate story in all creation. It is the drama we call life. Weren't the songs written, stories told, movies made mere echos of the human experience? And still, and still, and still, although we've heard the stories numerous times, we still cross our fingers for a happy ending.
Passion- we are actively being pursued by the MOST PASSIONATE PERSON who ever lived. In his passion, he formed the universe. In his passion, he accepted torture and death with no dignity and beauty. In his passion, he left an empty tomb. In his passion, He will come again to give the happiest ending that one could ever hope for. And even now, in this very minute, we are still being actively pursued by Him- Jesus Christ.
May we live lives where passion is a virtue; where we are also in active pursuit of Him who has said, "My thoughts toward you are countless as the sand on the seashore" (Psalm 139:17-18).
