The Days of My Life

Have you ever made a major life decision purely because of a bible verse? You have no reason to do such a thing, no logical basis for the choice you made, but you did it anyway because the bible verse told you so? I had such moments. Small and big moments that shaped the life…

Miracle

I missed going to book cafes in Seoul so I made a small book cafe in the corner of my kitchen. I could easily find one to visit here but it’s not the same. I moved a small book shelf from my child’s room and took a quick trip to the local library. My daughter…

Satisfaction

The Midwest cold front had come and gone and left us with a huge relief from the intolerable heat. It’s cold, even. I sat on my balcony wearing my sweater but the cold air was seeping through. This 30 degree drop of temperature overnight is abnormal. But I have to admit, it is a refreshing…

The Best Story

Writing, to me, goes like this. I sit on my usual seat, my green patio chair on my balcony. I do my morning readings which comprise of my study Bible, devotion, and two monthly essay magazines in Korean. After my readings are finished, I simply hold the coffee mug and stare at the green leaves…

I am blessed with a few hours to myself alone this week while my daughter is in the Vacation Bible School this week. Because it won’t allow me to be at my yoga studio in time, I decided to spend this week outdoors as much as I can weather permitting. On day one, which was…

Simplest Remedies

She is curious and always jumps on opportunities to explore to learn more. She goes to Japan, to Hawaii, to Utah, to California, to New Jersey, and to anywhere she feels called to be whether it is to fulfill her family engagements or to purely satisfy her desire to learn more. She is a doctor…

The Flow

I sit here on my balcony planning my day. Wondering how best to use this blessed day, I look up at the sky. It all depends on the weather when you have a small toddler. I check my weather app. The air quality is excellent and the partial clouds will shield us from the burning…

Soul Consciousness

The music titled “Japan” plays on my Pandora station. I loved this song so much at one point of my life that I replayed this tune all day for weeks until I finally grew out of it. It brings back my fond memories of my Hawaii days. At the same time, my mind remembers the…
