What is with the Day 255

It was part of the book, that I’ve read already for many times. Also, it was my counting days since the day I’ve confess my feelings for that person although I didn’t say it personally but it took a lot of courage for me to do that. Meaning, the feelings remain for almost 255 days. And yes until now you still have that place. I thought after telling you, everything will return to itself but it didn’t happen. But there’s a lot of changes.

Day 255 – Love keep its word.

Let be our “yes” be “yes”, our “no” be “no” – matthew 5:37

Start with the simple priority of doing what you said you would do.

Short Story about Connection

Think about a coffee shops across the land where cappuccinos and lattes are sipped and savored. Many of these shops have little round tables with two chairs facing each other. Usually two people are seated at these small tables, leaning forward, face to face, hand under shin, and they are talking. Are these talking people men or women? As a rule, they are women. Women like round tables that place no one at the head in a position of leadership. They like to see eye to eye and connect on a personal level.

Greet one anoth…

Greet one another with a kiss of love. – 1 Peter 5:14

Love makes sacrifices

He laid down His life for us. We should also lay down our lives for our brothers. – 1 John 3:16

Life can be hard. But what we usually mean is that our life can be hard. We’re the first to feel it when we’re the ones being mistreated or inconvenienced. We’re quick to sulk when we’re the ones who feel deprived or unappreciated. When life is difficult for us, we notice.

But too often the only way we notice that life is hard for our mate is when they start complaining about it. Then instead of genuinely caring or rushing in to help, we might think they just have a bad attitude. The pain and pressure they’re under don’t register with us the way it does when it’s our pain and pressure.

This doesn’t happen when love is at work. Love doesn’t have to be jarred awake by your mate’s obvious signs of distress. Before worries and troubles have begun to bury them, love has already gone into action mode. It sees the weight beginning to pile up and it steps in to help. That’s because love wants you to be sensitive to your mate.

Love makes sacrifices. It keeps you so tuned in to what your spouse needs that you often respond without being asked. And when you don’t notice ahead of time and must be told what’s happening, love responds to the heart of the problem.

Love inspires you to say “no” to what you want, in order to say “yes” to what your mate needs.

That’s what He did. “He laid down His life for us” to show us that “we should also lay down our lives” for others. He taught us that the evidence of love is found in seeing a need in others, then doing all we can to satisfy it. “For I was hungry, and you gave me something to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave me something to drink; I was a stranger, and you invited me in; naked, and you clothed me; I was sick, and you visited me; I was in prison, and you came to me” (Matthew 25:35-36)

Love is willing to make sacrifices to see that the needs of your spouse are given your very best effort and focus. When your mate is overwhelmed and under the gun, love calls you to set aside what seems so essential in your own life to help, even if it’s merely the gift of a listening ear.

Often all they really need is just to talk this situation out. They need t see in your two attentive eyes that you truly care abut what this is costing them, and you’re serious about helping them seek answers. The solutions may be simple and easy for you to do, or they may be complex and expensive, requiring time, energy, and great effort.

The words “How can I help you?” need to stay fresh on your lips.

a Relationship

What it is?

– the state of being connected or related between people.

What kind?

– between family, children, relatives, siblings, teachers, classmates, batch mates, friends, acquaintance, co-workers, lover, husband/wife, in-laws and God.

Having a good relationship with people surrounds you, it only means one knows what are the basic rule to keep the relationship well. There are certain rules, one must not be inform of what are those rules cause everyone has their own. Its painful when the closeness of two person crushed down, cause it is not that easy to regain the closeness back to its oneself. There is already crack that will remain as a mark between your relationship but at the same time it can be the challenge on how one is willing to get that closeness back like same as before. And also, it is also a learning for both parties on how they will keep the relationship much stronger that before. That’s what friends should be, isn’t? No matter what are the circumstances one might face, friends will always be friends..

As for a lover its a different story but how does this relationship started? First, they become friends, isn’t? They become close as day passes by, share secrets, laughter, stories of non-sense just enjoying each other company like friends. As day goes on, one of them may fall for the other one. One start to show much deeper affection, caring and etc. Each day the feelings go stronger but one should know how to take control of it cause there is a consequence in every action or move one will make it. There is more sacrifices in this kind of relationship and commitment is really part of it. More demands but it depends on both parties. One will adjust to one another to meet their wants even if it just in between. A give and take relationship. One will me greater and the other one is lesser but one should not measure their love on who is giving much or receiving less cause there is no perfect people only unique that define one another in which one may click to one another.

Honesty, Trust, Respect, Loyal, Faith, Kind and more of this.
