have i told you, Jesus, that i am now more in love with You than before? i have known You for five years now. i was such a different person when i first met You few years back. i was steeped in skepticism and cynicism. my life wasn't at all abundant. I didn't know what it meant to be childlike in my faith. i was bitter about negative experiences in my life. i didn't know how to be thankful . even when i first knew You, i didn't believe everything about what You said or what Your children were telling me. but, i still stuck with You, because You had shown yourself to be a best friend. i have been through pain, and also such tremendous joy in these years with you, especially here in the USA, and You were always there. the greatest thing, is that I experienced and felt Your love, in times of despair. I also saw Your amazing grace working through the lives of the other people,especially in their times of weaknesses. for in our pride, human confidence and self righteousness, we can't see You. it's very easy for me to be tempted, to value other things more highly than i do You.You would always challenge us, many times through difficulties, to enjoy YOU more than the things of this world. i want to continue to enjoy this romance with You. through laughters, through tears, loneliness, and great companionships with other people, i want to get to know and love You better. Please let me in.....further into Your beautiful embrace.thank You for Your love, for each and everyone of us. Let's continue dancing together!

Psalm 23- 4-6
" Even though i walk through the
darkest valley, i fear no evil;
for you are with me;
your rod and your staff,
they comfort me.
You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies;
you anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.
Surely goodness and mercy shall
follow me
all the days of my life,
and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord
my whole life long."
