Damned! Life aren’t that fair right! My father can have a new wife, Carla after our mother leave the family. I cannot blame my mother 100% for what she had done. She said father was too poor to support her taste in term of material, sex and care. She married with a journalist in another town. She is not allowed to meet us when we are still young. Once, she sent some money to Greta or my account, but she stopped since Carla is holding our money, spent all of our earning. Our father is a bastard, glorious stingy bastard. He earns a living at the fertilizer factory. Well a shit works at a shit place. He never gives us a penny since me and Greta started to work.
Carla is a heaven sent mother if our father is at home, treats me & Greta like her little prince & princess but she will immediately turned into a wild beast when father is not at home. We have to do housework, cleaning, cook for ourselves. Yes, she is the beast who betrays her master my father. Whenever our father went on night shift, she goes out to The St James Building, where she meets her fellow secret friends. Perhaps she performs striptease or moonlight ritual to the Freemasonry, to earn extra money, to make new network with the Freemasonry brothers or to seduce new dick. Whatever satisfaction she earns, it never brings happiness to me and Greta. I wish I could tell my father but a wish is just a wish. My father will never trust me and Greta anyway. Greta is my little sister, she is just 16. But she is born on 4th of April. People say that 4 is a bad number. In Kabala, it is stated that 4 is a symbol of death. I don’t want anything to happen on her. She is the only blood I have. She is so tall for her age, slim, fragile, gentle and so flawless that can leave any vivid memory on others. Greta works a general cleaner at a hospital. I wish there is a single doctor will propose Greta as a...

Temple Blessings

...Temple Work or Temple Blessings My mission wasn’t anything I thought it would be. It was far better than I thought it would ever be and it changed me forever. Something happened to me there that I will never forget and it helped inspire me for this this project for me. I all started the day I left for my mission. Right before I entered the MTC I made a few quick stops. One of them was a stop at my grandparents house just down the street from the MTC. After I took some pictures and embraced my grandparents for the last for two I made a statement that turned out to be prophetic. As I was getting into the car I turned to my mom and said to her, “This might be the last time I ever see Poppa” Poppa is a my grandfather, at the time he was very sick and we weren’t sure how much longer he would make it. His quality of life had been diminishing for a few months and mentally he was losing the strength to continue. My Poppa wasn’t a member of the church either. Fast-forward a year and a half later. I enter the library in a town outside Boston, Massachusetts to email my parents like any other Monday. I opened my email to read that my cousin who was only a few months older than me had passed away due to substance abuse and that my Poppa had suffered a seizure and was in a medically induced coma. My mind went blank. I could not think. I couldn’t speak. I had only heard of things like this happening to other people it didn’t happen to me and my family. We were safe from that......

...Bar Glassware ...all the different bar glasses and their uses | There is such a variety of bar glassware out there that it can get confusing to decipher which ones accompany which drinks. And you may be thinking that one glass is the same as the next. But this is simply not true. All bar glassware is shaped differently for a purpose. In addition to aesthetics (the way the finished drink looks), the different shapes and sizes of the glasses contribute to the overall flavour of the finished drink. With wine glasses, for example, the bouquet of the wine cannot be fully realized without having the right shaped glass. Since taste is very much affected by smell, wine drunk out of the wrong glass won't taste as good as when the proper wine glass is used (and you likely won't be able to tell unless you try the right wine with the right and wrong wine glass). And for champagne, it is important to use a champagne flute so that the bubbles can travel freely upwards and the champagne won't go flat prematurely - as with a glass with more surface area. One other note regarding bar glassware is to always ensure that the glasses that you serve drinks in (or receive drinks in) are spotless. Glasses that are not cleaned properly, will also negatively affect the taste of the beverage. Bar Glassware and their uses....    Beer Mug - a standard 10-12oz beer mug commonly used for half pints of draught (draft)    Brandy Snifter - shaped liked it is so that the user can......

How Do I See Myself

Moreover, I shall have also saved a certain amount of money, visited many places and have experienced some leisure for myself, let's say, vacations, out-of-town trips, mountaineering, etc. What’s more important is that by this time I see myself believing in the words my loved ones have told me: Through the education that we can acquire, we shall realize that we are not powerless in the future; that our choices will bring us to certain goals.

Ace Helpful Hands

...First and foremost, I would like to give thanks to God for all of his everlasting blessings. I would also like to thank ACE American Industries for this wonderful opportunity to participate in such a gracious and beneficial program for the sake of our children. Thank you and God bless. My name is Merton M. Hunkin. I am a parent of 3 beautiful children that attend the Aua Elementary School. I am also the current president of the Parent Teacher Association. When I first took office, I immediately performed an inspection on the school. Upon the completion of my inspection, I knew that I had my hands full because there were so many problems within the school that needed immediate attention. Once I identified the issues and problems that needed to be fixed, I immediately began to search for answers. I have been in and out of the D.O.E. headquarters seeking help. Unfortunately, there is not enough funding. We have also requested assistance from our adopted government agencies. Unfortunately for us, this means of support has come to a stalemate. The problems that currently exist in Aua Elementary School are just too overwhelming for us to repair in a timely manner without any financial assistance. We have tried fundraising, but unfortunately the money that we have raised so far is nowhere near enough to make the repairs needed. So when I heard of the ACE Helpful Hands Program, I knew for a fact that this is an opportunity that I absolutely cannot......

Marks of a Good Man

...functioning as a man, taking responsibility as a man, thinking like a man, acting like a man, working like a man, all of these are prerequisites to being a good Father! You will not be a good Father until you are a good Man. It’s a dying art today…there are not many in our nation anymore. Thank God we DO have a few good men here…we can always use a few more! 1. Psalm 37:23- The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord, And He delights in his way. E.g. God’s Promises to Abraham Genesis 12:1-3 (NKJV) Now the LORD had said to Abram: “Get out of your country,From your family And from your father’s house, To a land that I will show you. 2 I will make you a great nation;I will bless you And make your name great; And you shall be a blessing. 3 I will bless those who bless you, And I will curse him who curses you;And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.” 2. Proverbs 12:2a- A good man obtains favor from the Lord.. Acts 13:22(NIV)2 After removing Saul, he made David their king. God testified concerning him: ‘I have found David son of Jesse, a man after my own heart; he will do everything I want him to do.’ 3. Proverbs 13:22a – A good man leaves an inheritance to his children’s children E.g. Judges 2: 7-10 - When all that generation had been gathered to their fathers, another generation arose after them who did not know the Lord nor the work which He had done for Israel. 4.

Julia's Tribute

...For those of you that don't know me my name is Brittany. I work at The Willows at Citation where I took care of Julia. For the short 3 months and 11 days that I knew Julia. I've learned something that no book could possibly ever teach me. On our Journey together I was constantly being moved and touched in ways that I often cannot describe. To live with Alzheimer's and still laugh, love and find joy is nothing short of amazing. I never got that chance to meet Julia when she was full of life and energy. Instead God blessed me with Julia on May 6th of this year. God had also blessed me with the ability to really connect with Julia. I spent many nights by her bedside, I've spent many hours listening, I've shared many tears with her daughter's and I've experienced many lifelong connections. Julia taught me the importance of living in the moment and finding joy in the small things. No two minutes were alike. Things were constantly changing and it put us on the wildest roller coaster ride imaginable. I must say it took a while and I'm sure I'm speaking for a few others when I say this but I came to realize that in order to survive, you must live in the moment and appreciate each and every good thing that happens, no matter how small. Sometimes you really have to dig deep to find the good in a lousy situation. The interesting thing is that bar is constantly moving. That thing that may have seemed completely insignificant a few months ago, can suddenly become the joy that......

...‘Blessing’ By Imtiaz Dharker The skin cracks like a pod. There never is enough water. Imagine the drip of it, the small splash, echo in a tin mug, the voice of a kindly god. Sometimes, the sudden rush of fortune. The municipal pipe bursts, silver crashes to the ground and the flow has found a roar of tongues. From the huts, a congregation: every man woman child for streets around butts in, with pots, brass, copper, aluminum, plastic buckets, frantic hands, And naked children screaming in the liquid sun, their highlights polished to perfection, flashing light, as the blessing sings over their small bones. I want to start off with a question: Blessings: do we take them for granted? Benjamin Franklin once said, “When the well’s dry, we know the worth of water”. This quote reveals the way in which humans take things for granted and then realise its value once it disappears. In this poem, a burst water pipe in the Dharavi slum of India causes great excitement for inhabitants as they are often lacking access to it. A theme that DIRECTLY relates to the text is that of “We do not fully appreciate an item until it becomes rare”. In the arid conditions of Mumbai, water is viewed as a precious commodity and every single drop of the liquid is considered a miraculous blessing. Water is like currency, it’s like money. In a hot country in that kind of climate, it’s like a gift. Dharker uses a combination of literary techniques in order......

Is This a Waste of Time? can be considered as a good deed. Tithes are the most common and perfect example of giving. Malachi 3:10 states, “‘Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,’ says the Lord, ‘and see if I will not throw open the floodgates and pour out so much blessing that there will not be enough room to store it.” This plainly states that a small portion of what is made and given back is promised to be multiplied into great worth. If members of the church give back graciously, the church may continue to grow, the children will receive the word, or people will become closer to God. I clearly recall the first time I gave an offering. It was twenty dollars out of my first paycheck and I was ecstatic, yet nervous. I knew I had given to a good cause but was curious as to if all my money would go there; I spent many nights praying over my money. Weeks later, I was desperate for the twenty dollars to pay for gas. At the gas pump, my card was not declined and I filled up half of my tank. As I pulled up my banking account, I looked and seen that one-hundred dollars had somehow appeared in my checking account. I knew that money was definitely a blessing and a “thank you” for my actions. Caring is often natural to some. Caring can lead to a warm heart or a heart ache. Some do not care for a reward, some care just to give. I have spent many years of my life caring for all types...

...DOMINION IN CHRIST A king rules his domain with a word of authority. God created and maintains everything by His Word of power. You who resemble God must rule everything by your word of authority. Your language should be always, “let there be”! Jesus in His earthly Adam was created to rule and have dominion over all other creations (Ge.1:26). This is God’s intention and also His blessing. The purpose of the new creation is to rule and reign in life (Ro.5:17). Sin, satan, sickness and world cannot have dominion over you. God has commanded you to subdue it under your authority. You are born to rule! A king rules his domain with a word of authority. God created and maintains everything by His Word of power. You who resemble God must rule everything by your word of authority. Your language should be always, “let there be”! Jesus in His earthly walk ruled over the demons, diseases, nature and everything by His Word power. You are engrafted in Him. His Words now go through your mouth and rule everything. You are God’s Zion. Out of you should go the scepter of God to subdue all enemies (Ps.110:2). Jesus still rules through you in midst of His enemies. It was not Adam alone who was created in the image of God to dominate. Eve was also included. In Christ, there is no male or female. The gender difference is broken in Christ (Gal.3:28; Col.3:11). Life in Christ knows no barrier of gender or creed or race or color. All human beings come from Adam and Eve. It’s the devil who brought all...

Technology: Is It a Blessing or a Curse?

...Good evening ladies and gentlemen. Technology. It has benefitted just about everyone here in one way or another. It runs in the veins of society and is the fuel that drives our lives. On a positive note, it has brought luxury in the life of the common man; but technology has also shown its negative connotations in the form of, among other ways, increased laziness by today’s youth. I will now discuss in detail the blessings and curses that technology have produced, beginning with the blessings. Now we are all aware that we live in a technologically advanced age. Gone are the days when transportation was scarce and very difficult, when children had to walk miles to and from school and communication with family and loved ones was only through letters. With modern technology, we have advanced from faxes to e-mail and bicycles to cars and planes. Technology has also automated many of the critical processes in the industry as well as households. Modern electronic gadgets that have entered the homes of the common man have saved him from the grind of certain daily household chores. The internet has also shown to be a positive by assisting young people in uplifting their self-esteem through online programmes and we all know that it is the quickest means of acquiring, processing and disseminating information, which is admittedly a plus. Also, technology has led to the discovery of new treatments in previously untreatable diseases like diabetes and sickle cell anaemia,......

...3:30 a.m. to get ready for the Buddhist blessing. The Buddhist blessing had to be done no later than 8:00 a.m. My aunt and uncle’s house was busy from the moment everyone got up. Families arrived to help finish prepping food and decorations for the party. You can hear everyone chattering, yelling, people walking up and down the stairs and in and out the doors. You could also hear knives hitting against the thick cutting board that’s being used to chop up meats. My cousin Mylee had nine bridesmaid because the number nine is considered lucky in the Thai culture. Every helped one another get ready and put on their traditional Thai outfits. As 6:30am rolled around, the Buddhist blessing was ready to begin. Nine Buddhist monks in their orange robes, made their way inside my cousin’s house. In the basement was where the monks sat. The carpet of the basement floor was covered with reddish brown linen. As the bride and groom made their way to the monks, they first lit up some incense, candles and gave the monks fruits and money that is sealed in an envelope because the monks could not handle money. They both then kneeled in front of the monks to begin the blessing ceremony. After the blessing from the monks, the bride and groom receives three white dots marked on their foreheads. They also got sprinkled with the water that has been blessed from the monks. The water is sprinkled on their heads and all over their bodies. Before the Buddhist blessing is over, the monks are feed......
