I who live on a planet Earth for a life of a trice - can enjoy the life of eternity without an end. My faith in the resurrection of the body through Jesus Christ helps a lot for this journey. I cannot change this journey, because I didn't start, neither did my parents nor any others on this planet, but God our Maker our Redeemer and our Sustainer. Truth is the fact that someone began this journey for me. Mother, YoonJa, used to pray for me to become a person like Abraham who experience the Maker as One who provides, called Jehoveh Jireh (Genesis 22:14). Dad gave me name, DaeHwa (대화/大華), literally meaning "a person who shines great." What a overwhelm expectation! I hold my wife and my children in prayer at noon each day no matter where I am. So shall they for me and their children tirelessly and without ceasing.
The Maker has given me a gift of freedom to do any thing here on earth, as He does to many others. Although we can do much things in eternity, yet we can make a difference by choices we may make - something fun and generous, something lovely and beautiful, and something pathetic and even other awful things. Thinking of the gift, I often haunted by things I can possibly abuse the gift. What if I can turn the blessings upon my family from God to unexpected path to sinning (expedite an end) simply by my own choice. I cannot allow that to happen. I cannot allow myself the gift to be wasted, unused, and/or misused.
I hope and pray that my beloved take good care of the gift while living on the PRECIOUS LIFE here on earth!
Each day I pray: "Teach us, good Lord, to serve you as you deserve; to give and not to count the cost; to fight and not to heed the wounds; to toil and not to seek for rest; to labor and not to ask for any reward, except that of knowing that we do your will; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen." (Prayer of Ignatius of Loyola)
