It has never occurred to me that Abba would be interested in hearing about how my day is going. I was afraid that he will not like what I share with him and we will grow distant.

When I opened my eyes to Godly love, it brightened up my entire heart.

Like the two sides of a coin, my fear of separating from Abba was also a wall that kept us apart.





행복이란 자립이다.


한없이 약한존재로 태어나는 우리들은 어렸을때는 자기중심적인 사고를 할수 밖에 없다.

하지만 성장하면서 스스로 살아갈수 있도록 준비해야 한다. 바로 1. 공동체에서 자신이 중심이 아니며 구석일 수도 있다는 것과, 2. 우리는 모두 존재하는것 자체만으로도 공헌한다는것을 일깨우는 것이다.  그러므로 누군가에게 사랑받는 존재가 아니라 누군가를 사랑하는 존재가 되는것이 진정한 자립이다. 

모든 고민은 인간관계에서 오지만, 행복, 삶의 기쁨 역시 사람들과의 관계속에서만 만들어진다. 그러므로 우리는 사람들과의 관계를 만들어갈 용기를 가져야 한다. 그것이 바로 행복해질 용기이다.


Why leaves turn color

Leaves contain 3 types of pigments: chlorophyll which is green, carotene which is yellow, and anthocyanin which is red.

Chlorophyll make the leaves appear green because it absorbs Red and Blue light from the sunlight.
Carotene make the leaves appear yellow because it absorbs Blue-Green and Blue light from the sunlight.
Anthocyanin make the leaves appear red because it absorbs Blue-Green, Blue and Green light from the sunlight.

Chlorophyll are comparatively unstable and is continuously regenerated via sunlight and warm temperature. When climate gets colder and chlorophyll or green color decline, the more stable carotene the yellow pigments appear and leaves turn yellow. As the leaves dry, the increased level of sugar reacts with some proteins and sunlight to form anthocyanin the red pigment, making the leaves turn red. Anthocyanin are PH sensitive and it can be bright red in ripe apples or purple in ripe grapes.
