The Gift of A Friend

5:38 AM

Last week, a couple of close friends dropped by and my heart felt so much refreshed. It had been tough season in the ministry and I don’t often get chance to express how I feel or open my heart so seeing these good friends of mine again after many months was really like a ray of sunshine on a cold, winter morning!  It was like God knew  I needed to see them before I even realized it myself! Open-mouthed smile

It feels so good to think that God loves us so much to give us friends who love us, who are willing to stick with us till the end… friends who amazingly reminds us of worth in the eyes of the Lord without even saying a word and by just simply sitting across the table, chatting and having dinner with you.

I am so blessed to have those kinds of brothers in the Lord.


I stand in wonder that I matter so much to God for Him to  “invent” friends, to give me my brothers whom I dearly love and hold close to my heart—and who loves me just the same, and to send them to come at the right time when I least expect it, but when I really need  them the most.

There are times when we wonder if God will ever come for us or if He will show up on our behalf, but this season of my life…

God sends answers before I even start to wonder or ask.  God knows what we need and He has provided them before we even need them. He is really that awesome! And I’ll be forever grateful…


…for the gift of a friend…of godly and loving friends.

Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed. If one person falls, the other can reach out and help. But someone who falls alone is in real trouble. Likewise, two people lying close together can keep each other warm. But how can one be warm alone? A person standing alone can be attacked and defeated, but two can stand back-to-back and conquer. Three are even better, for a triple-braided cord is not easily broken.
Ecclesiastes 4:9–12

I Love The Way You Hold Me

You take each and every day, make it special in some way. I can’t imagine even loving You less.

Lord, I love the way You hold me. –J.G.

A Little Word For The Day

A Little Word For The Day: Never Letting Go

5:07 AM

The other night, my sister Ava and I took our 7 year-old cousin Dane out for ice cream. It was about dinner time and we had to walk a little distance to get the convenience store. You wouldn’t mind ‘cause it’s summer and people would even go out at midnight just to get ice cream. ;)


It was my first time to take Dane for a short walk around the neighborhood. We always drew and played in my room but it was always my sister Ava who took her out. I was really excited and was feeling very protective at the same time. I held Dane’s hand tightly as I could as we walked to the store.

But after a little while, as we took our last turn towards “ice cream”, Dane began to ask some questions that were sweet but frightened me a bit. LOL


~~~The Conversation~~~
Dane: What if I get lost? Are you gonna look for me?
Cathy: Of course, we’re gonna look for you. BUT you shouldn’t get lost. You should always hold tightly to my hand.
Dane: How long would it take you to find me?
