I could have been born anywhere in this world. I could have been born in poverty, or a place where the news of Jesus has not been reached. I could have been born into a rich family, or a messed up family, rich or poor or average.

But God put me here. I know what comfort is. I also know pain. I know who God is because of my upbringing and being in a community that has helped lead me in my walk with God. I may not be in the most perfect situation, as there are always worst, or better.

And I see, that i have much to be thankful for. I don't know the whole picture, but there must be reasons for me to be here and not somewhere else. And that's comforting to know. :)

Lucille♥Love said...

Joline said...

oh dear, did i sound moody? on the contrary, this was actually a post to celebrate being thankful! haha. :)

but yes Lucille, despite being thankful, i agree that sometimes that thoughts comes along... to just pack and leave altogether.

zzen:

huh... bird? pimples? hahah, link?

uh, i'm always plagued by pimples so i'm not the best person to ask. but if there's anything i've learnt from all these pimples, it would be:

1) use as little creams as possible to prevent pore clogging
2) use a good clay mask to absorb oil after a long day of being out/having used make up or BB cream, etc
3) Use a scrub regularly.
4) Stick to the same brand of skincare if it works. (i use the DHC acne range, facial wash and toner, and the tea tree scrub from Aesop)

Lucille:

yeah... i know. oh well, at least after the emo session, can get back to normal. :)

aloe ha said...

bird in paradise dun have worries and zits mah. i realised aloe vera gel works leh. my colleague lent me one from GNC and it is good not only for zits(i realised those small zits on my forehead are gone), it is great as moisturiser and insect bites too.

joline said...

zzen:

that's good then, stick with that since it works. :)

oh yeah, i wanted to add. when i buy products, i try to look out for ingredients like salicylic acid, tea tree, lavender, basically natural essential oils from plants. I generally try to go for products that have as many natural ingredients rather than chemical stuff.

It can be possible how the magic formula things we all gathered may also get contributed to the quantity of bonus characteristics we revealed to you at the conclusion of every level, including art galleries, videos, and different clothes for Lara. Almost all of the combat in the game comes about with close up groups.For the go delinquent problems placing, no several levels we performed by way of at this juncture asked a great deal of challenge, even though that is most certainly not a critique given that the initial two are merely simply action-packed training. Decreasing reason behind the benefit which we had been able to find with the 1st a number of ranges could be the large number of first-aid systems that people discovered, together with the proven fact that Lara is able to carry three of these concurrently to be used later.
