Do you know why it's hard to say goodbye? Because we afraid if our memories might not be able to remember them, rightly. The fact is, goodbye means good. No matter how hard.

Family in Peace: Makna Damai Kristus

Ester, Yakobus, dan Markus. Yakobus bilang ketika kita hidup di dalam situasi penderitaan, kita diminta untuk berdoa. Hidup hingga pikiran kita kacau~ pengendalian diri secara sengaja, BERDOA. Saling mendoakan baik untuk orang lain agar kita sendiri mendapatkan damai sejahtera. Hal ini memanglah tidaklah mudah. Ester menceritakan sikap Haman yang tersinggung kepada Mordekhai. Ester sendiri malah minta kematian Haman, hal ini pun menjadi pikiran yang berat oleh Raja Ahasyweros. Contoh ini adalah gambaran dari kekecewaan dan kekecewaan dapat menghasilkan suatu keburukan. Dalam Markus, murid-murid Yesus protes mengenai orang lain yang mengusir roh jahat di dalam nama-Nya. Tapi Yesus bilang barangsiapa yang tidak melawan kita (Pengikut Kristus) adalah bagian dalam kita, yang berhak mendapat hak dan berkat dari Tuhan Yesus. Hal ini menggambarkan kuasa dan kasih sayang Tuhan tidak terbatas pada hanya kalangan mereka melainkan pada semua orang yang percaya. Bagi setiap orang yang percaya p…

Ibadah yang Sejati

Mazmur 50: Allah adalah Hakim sekarang dan selama-lamanya.
1. Mempersembahkan korban tapi dengan pikiran yang salah, ayat 8, Tuhan menggambarkan bahwa orang Yahudi mempersembahkan korban bakaran dengan pikiran bahwa Tuhan butuh persembahan korban itu, namun Tuhan ingin menegaskan bahwa Tuhan tidak membutuhkan korban karena Ia miliki semua yang ada di dunia. Pada zaman itu, orang Yahudi hidup bercampur bersama dengan orang-orang bangsa lain, pikiran hal ini yang menyimpang. Suatu ritual yang rutin dilakukan malah menjadi formalitas dan tidak memberikan pengaruh/perubahan dalam hidup.  Contoh pikiran yang salah:  A. Datang  ke gereja tiap Hari Minggu brarti sudah beribadah (hidup kita ialah Ibadah, tiap hari, tiap waktu), hari ketujuh merupakan hari Manusia hidup setelah hari keenam mereka dibentuk, hari ketujuh hal pertama yang dilakukan manusia ialah Sabath,yakni bekerja menyembah Tuhan) B. Masih untung datang ke gereja, berarti sudah gereja (isi pikiran kita ialah ibadah kita. Pandan…

It's already on September and I thought, I should at least be grateful or anything. This year was the second hardest part of my life. They kept telling me it's my fault and I have no doubt either about it.
Cinema world seemed very curious about me.
It's all start with my idea to read 35 books for the year in goodreads.com *something made me I shouldn't do that!* But, I pretty much explore so many science-fiction books that I can read along. One of them was Ready Player One by Ernest Cline. So, I decided to read the book in 2015, 6th January.And, Steven Spielberg signed on to direct in March 2015. It's Steven Spielberg, so I was like in absolute happy. Then, I kind of forgot and stuffs, along the months I really obsessed with Gene Wilder. I mean, it all started with I wonder who's Mel Brooks in February 2015 (*read my post: http://julybones.blogspot.co.id/2015/02/magic-word-mel-brooks.html ) and after that I found his movie with Gene Wilder in Young Frankenstei…

Overview Honest Review: Oh My Ghostess (2015)

It's amazing.
My most favorite moment was when after I watched the whole last so fun-honest-romantic 8 episodes, there's this scene of really scary evil came out from Im Ju Hwan's character and it felt, the build-up anger and honesty on the scene, and the intense sound, it's all about Im Ju Hwan.  His character was different. It's hard to deliver a very good person but turns out to be the bad one, because not all audiences love noir/thriller-mystery genre, yet Im Ju Hwan took it. This Oh My Ghostess drama series rolling the same months with I Remember You drama, played by Seo In Guk (the guy who made appearance in this drama, too) and Jang Na Ra. If Im Ju Hwan's character was in I Remember You, it being delivered by three characters *if you watched I Remember You*. And seriously, Oh My Ghostess just gave us Im Ju Hwan and his solo performance was exceptional, I cried for that scene because that's the scariest scene from all episodes in this ghost drama and…
