Kid's Camp 2008 .. AHA!

Wow! I had a fun summer this April… I thanked God for the opportunity of making me a part of our church Kid's Camp this year… I did learned a lot… to be honest, I had some regrets… cause I feel that I could have done better as a volunteer… I felt that I never gave my best, but still the Lord was very gracious for giving me this experience which really moved me…

At first I thought that I’ll be there to teach and assist the kids but eventually what happen was, the kids did taught me a LOT… I observed kids who are at their young age were very independent and responsible – with their things and how they manage themselves… I saw kids who easily mingle with others and are very friendly – no insecurities, no pretentions, only genuine friendship… which is a hard stuff for adults like us… we’re hard to trust others, we don’t easily open up… we make a lot of reservations and as much as possible keep everything to ourselves…There are also kids who are not afraid to eat or do their stuff alone without any companion… Which is an anxiety for me, I was never used to eat alone or go to the mall alone, I always find someone(a friend or a family) to be with me…

I realize that the Lord has His amazing ways of opening our eyes on the stuffs that already blinded us… on evaluating ourselves through others... and most of the times we just need to be sensitive enough to see it and respond to it…

Where are you going?

Success has little to do with speed but much to do with direction. 

Many times in my life I was occupied with the things I thought that would make me great and successful. I want everything in order, I plan most of the time, I set short-term and long-term goals, I give myself deadlines and engage with many organizations and activities. I always thought that smart and active living belongs to those whose schedules are hectic, have many acquaintances, and those who have jam-packed planners. But overtime I came to value that it is not what you accomplish that really matters rather where do these accomplishments lead you. 

You maybe achieving many things right now but in the end you’ll realize that everything you had was meaningless. And you’ll begin to ask yourself, “Is this everything I dreamt of?” or “Am I really happy?” Then soon be eaten up by frustrations and disappointments ... Reason? Simply because we never know where we are heading to. I believe that a person who doesn't know his destination in life is the most miserable human being on earth and someone who will never reach the finish line.

Ask yourself friend, “Where do I really wanna go?“ only then you’ll know the necessary steps to make.
