Ladies: Don’t give up on your dream man.

I have a word of encouragement for all the female readers and subscribers of my blog.

Spring is here. Hopefully that’s good news on the Vitamin D front and for general energy and outdoor activities.

But then there’s the other kind of ‘Spring Fever’ and crazy stuff like “ring by spring”. Depending on your perspective, some of it might feel like a downer. For example:

Some of your girlfriends are posting pictures of their latest excursions with their boyfriends; Some friends are changing their facebook statuses to ‘In a relationship’ or ‘Married’ or ‘I’m hot and you’re not.’

Whatever the deal, it’s time to take a moment to get perspective.

Just when you lost all hope on the charisma, charm, and chivalry of single men and considered giving up on your dream dude…

there is hope!

As much as folks want to knock online services like Match.com and E: Harmony…

Consider how awkward things were during the age of “video dating” or whatever you call it.

This is scary, funny, and everything in between.

Enjoy…I think.

And laugh. It’s good to laugh.

    The guys that make lists of what they don’t want are hilarious and offensive, but I loved the guy that was “interested in most data processing”. Because there is nothing a girl wants more than a guy that loves data processing.

  2. They all have so many charming qualities; is it possible to somehow mash all of their DNA together to create the one perfect man?

    Ellen showed the beginning part of that video on her show! She then asked the audience and viewers to let her know if they knew any of the guys. She then had 3 of the men on her show! Here’s the link: http://ellen.warnerbros.com/2009/10/80s_dating_video_men_found.php

One Day’s Wages

My Instagram

Made it to 47 years old. Grateful for God's grace and all those who believed in me, prayed for me, encouraged me, invested in me, forgave me, fed me, loved me, and _____ me.

I've come a long way since my first school picture  at the age of 6 - the age I immigrated to the United States. And long way to go. You can do it, sun. Break through the clouds. I love her. Saturday morning date at Pike Market with @minheejcho. Enjoying the final day of sun before 6 months of rain and gray. Not lol'ing. Some of my moat memorable travels have been to Myanmar (otherwise known as Burma). In fact, the vision of @onedayswages began on my first visit to this country in 2006. On a recent visit, I began learning about the Rohingya people. Sadly, it has escalated to horrendous, genocidal proportions.

Thus far, about 500,000 people have been driven out from Myanmar through violence...with most going to Bangledesh...regulated to a massive refugee camp. Stateless. Undocumented. Minority groups. Dehumanized. Homes and villages destroyed. And so much more unspeakable atrocities.

Yes, it's complex and messy. It always is. But the root of this injustice as the case for so much brokeness in the world is the sin of dehumanizing one anotber as..."the other." May we see each person, including the Rohingya people, as one who is created in the image of God. It's the truth and the remedy to the incessant dehumanization that goes on in our world.

Lord, in your mercy. The obedience of discipleship which includes the work of justice is a marathon. It's long, arduous, and emotional. Be tenacious. But also take care of yourself. Create healthy rhythms. Don't burn out. We need you for the marathon. Friends, don't give up. Press on. In the midst of so much chaos in the world, may we continue to cling to the hope of the whole Gospel. May we cling unto Jesus:

Way maker!
Miracle worker!
Promise keeper!
Light in the darkness!
That is who You are!

What an encounter with the Holy Spirit at @seattlequest today. Grateful for our worship team, the gospel choir, and the Audio/Visual team. Thank you Matt, Teresita, and Chris. Please thank all the volunteers for us.
