...long distance relationship???...(part 3-the end)

Living far away from the person we're used to live with is not easy. It is true! It works in me although I know that I am the kind of person who won't give up for everything, the person who will struggle to reach the focus I dream on.

When I was in the college, I always found so many people give hands to help me, give heart and ears to listen to me, give hugs when I was sad. It's not so easy like that when I move to continue my study in Singapore eventhough I have dear flatmates who are so nice to me. There's something missing...

Realizing that I would be on a long distance relationship made me think about it hundred times. San and I tried to refer to some friends who is able to go through out the range of time and distance between the couples. They had variative cases and I believe that many problems they faced.

* a couple with more than two years LDR, but still in in the same country, happy ending
* a couple with more than four years LDR, also in the same country, happy ending
* a couple with more than seven years LDR, in the different country, happy ending

We knew some couples didn't experience a happy ending though, but trying to think positively, we learn about how the success couple went through the problems arise from the distance itself. San came out with the conclusion that 'communication' and 'trust' are the solution. We are very lucky that we have our own notebooks, internet connection at home *thanks to StarHub and Speedy!!!*, YM, Skype, GoggleTalk, email, cheap calling card, handphone *thanks to XL that can receive email from YM...hehehe*. There's no barrier anymore for communication and it won't be a problem anymore. Moreover, trust can be built from a very good communication between each other.

The essential point above all of this is that 'to believe our Father in heaven'. He is the one who permit and plan us to be separated by the ocean. He has a purpose in doing that and we just couldn't go beyond our mind to understand what He wants. Giving Him all our burdens will help us to calm ourselves to enjoying His patience and love everytime. He is here with us, everytime, not just when we need Him. He won't let us alone. He is in our heart.

Whenever you feel lonely, close your eyes...
put your hand on your heart...and you will find me...
inside your heart...

...long distance relationship???...(part 2)

Just a few minutes after finishing writing the part 1 -and honestly, I didn't plan that I will write the part 2 today- I read the online Our Daily Bread as usual, and this sentences below is there:

...Do you find yourself in a "wilderness" experience, isolated from friends and family? If so, the Lord may want to teach you lessons of faith and endurance that you could never learn in a busy crowd...

I am now isolated from beloved friends and family and boyfriend. Soooooo amazzzzinggg that I found the answer so fast. It is a wonderful experience. What will I write in the part 2 actually still mess up in my mind. But the passage I read in ODB give me the solution and conclusion about what I shall learn in this new life in Singapore.

I really want to experience the lessons of faith and endurance from God. I believe that it will complete me to be a wonderful woman loved by God.

Thanks God for today.

...long distance relationship???...(part 1)

that question were always on my mind since I knew him...
I thought that I am a kind of person who wouldn't be strong enough to go into long distance relationship (LDR) :)
I am a kind of person who really like to stay around my lovely family, friends and boyfriend-of course. Imagining that I would stay far away from all of people that I makes me sad.

I miss u all... be continued...

In His Hand.........

(A poem for Dita)

Dia begitu indah
Dia begitu sempurna
Dia begitu anggun
Dia bernama Kristus

Aku terkesima
Aku terhenyak
Aku terpana
Aku …….tak bisa berkata-kata

Kusampaikan salamku untuk Dita
Selamat menemukan hidup di tangan Dia
Terus berkarya bersama-Nya
Di dalam genggaman ajaib tangan-Nya

a beginning...

I used to write starting when I was able to write and then to type using a very old 'brother' typewriter. I liked to write poems, story and sometimes a very long fiction. I don't remember exactly when I stopped to write. It seemed that school activities, church services and anything else won most of my time.

Seeing many friends having their own blog, made me feel so interested in also having it. But ... again ... the school time, working time was on my priority at that time.

Now, why I start to open this blog is also because of my 'bunny' who always support me to have a blog to share OUR thought and experiences in life. I thought it is a good idea, which I can keep all of my writing in a very good place (I'am a messy girl...) and also to share it to everyone who keen to have a look :)

Well...I don't want to write such a long for a simple beginning...

Have a nice day to you all!!!
