Perpisahan never be an easy things for me.

“Ada pertemuan pasti ada perpisahan.”

Bulan September ini dipenuhi dengan banyak perpisahan. Jikalau di awal bulan(lebih tepatnya akhir bulan Agustus) harus berpisah dengan sahabat-sahabat yang sudah bekerja bersama-sama dalam pelayanan selama 7 tahun terakhir, di akhir bulan juga harus berpisah dengan sahabat-sahabat yang sudah seperti keluarga sendiri selama 2,5 tahun terakhir.

Persahabatan yang sangat berkesan, bukan karena tidak pernah berselisih atau bertengkar, tetapi justru semakin dekatnya kita, memperbanyak kemungkinan terjadinya gesekan di antara kita. Semakin besar kemungkinan terjadi perbedaan pendapat dan pertengkaran “kecil”. Tetapi yang saya sadari adalah, setiap hal yang terjadi itu tidak membuat persahabatan kita semakin jauh atau semakin buruk, tetapi justru membuat kita menjadi semakin saling mengenal, dan justru menjadi sahabat sejati.

Persahabatan tidak ada batas waktunya, bahkan mungkin waktu seumur hidup pun tidak akan cukup. Walaupun secara lokasi kita sudah berjauhan, saya yakin sahabat sejati akan tetap selalu menjadi sahabat.

“Seorang sahabat bukanlah seseorang yang selalu berada di dekat kita. Tetapi seseorang yang SELALU ada bagi kita disaat kita membutuhkannya.”

Walaupun mungkin bukan secara fisik berada di dekat kita, tetapi seorang sahabat sejati pasti ada bagi kita memberikan kekuatan dan tidak membiarkan kita berjalan sendiri. Perpisahan, mungkin menjadi akhir dari suatu fase. Tetapi juga menjadi awal dari fase berikutnya yang lebih besar.

Deeper in love – Cover

I am so In Love and i want to love You more and more.
Deeper in love

Lyrics :
There is a longing
Only You can fill
A raging tempest
Only You can still
My soul is thirsty Lord
To know You as I’m known
Drink from the river
That flows before Your throne

Take me deeper
Deeper in love with You
Jesus hold me close in Your embrace
Take me deeper
Deeper than I’ve ever been before
I just want to love You more and more
How I long to be deeper in love

Sunrise to sunrise
I will seek Your face
Drawn by the Spirit
To the promise of Your grace
My heart has found in You
A hope that will abide
Here in Your presence
Forever satisfied

When I long for peace in my heart

I long for a true joy to fill my heart

You come with love

Satisfy my soul, I want to be with You


Only when I’m near You

My God I feel assured

Only when I’m near You

I can feel the true joy

Always in my life

Think, Research, Ask

Think, Research, Ask

All of us know about this 3 things right.

What I mean about think is, if there is something that we don’t know, we think from what we already knew and try to find the answer by ourselves.

What I mean about research is, we are looking for a new resource or reference like internet, books, encyclopedia, etc.

What I mean about ask is, we ask somebody else about what we don’t know.

The three things are important in our daily life. But, in my opinion, what comes first is more important. Let’s look it using a case. Let’s talk there is a place that you have to go. So what will each step will do.


I will think from my experience, how to go there. Have I ever been there ? How can I get there ?


I will look at google map and simply raise questions such as where the place is located, how far it is, what route is available, how much it will cost, etc.


I will ask for opinion from friends, or someone who has been there.

Yes ! It will be easier if we just ask somebody and get the answer immediately. But let’s see what will happen if we only do one of it. In this case, if we only do the think part, we can arrive to that place. But, the trip time may longer than we expect. Or, it may cost a lot, and at the end, may ruin our plan. If we only look for brief information without thinking or asking for another opinion, we can achieve something but we do not get the optimized away. The last one is if we only ask to other people, it is the fastest way to get an answer. But, it will make us a dull. If there is a similar case, we still don’t know how to solve it.

What am I going to do ?

What I would do is, first i will research. I collect all the data that i need. After I get enough information, I will choose the best info. And i will repeat this process until I can’t get more information. For example, i will look for information such as, how far it is, is there any station near that place, how much it will cost if i am using a public transportation or my own car, I will be going alone or with friends (how many), etc.  After that, i will think to find which is the best one. I will compare the cost, time, or it will be a great journey or not. After i find the best one, I will looking for somebody that have been there, and asking for their opinions. Of course I will tell them what I have been searched beforehand.

I have a kind of bad habit before. It is easily ask google.

In my experience, nowadays we can get to another place easily using google maps and GPS. Yes, I do it a lot. The problem is come after that. I can’t remember how to go to that place !! Every time I want to go there, I will start my phone to looking for the same places ! I try to change that “bad habit”. Nowadays I will try to search beforehand, the place i want to go, which road that i have to take, and then I will use google maps ONLY for a tools that helping me. (The big difference is, I know which road that I have to take before I hit the road and not 100% believing in Google maps).

Visiting Hiroshima

It’s been awhile since i update my site.

2018 start with me traveling to Hiroshima.

It is a long drive and very tiring, because i’m exhausted and caught a cold.

(Thanks God that i go with a lot of friends so it is not get boring)

It is a long way, but yes it’s deserved it.

I visited Hiroshima Peace Memorial and Flame of Peace.

I arrived around 17:30 and yes it is very cold !

At first we see the Hiroshima Peace Memorial (Genpaku dome).

You can read the history of this site there, and i heard from my friend, if you come there evening, you can hear the story straight from person that survive the Bombing in Hiroshima.

I go around and see the dome from all sides.

I feel, how cruel humanbeing can be because of their desire.

Eventhough the bombing end the war, i don’t like how it is done.

After that we go to flame of peace (it is near only 3 minutes walk from the dome)

Flame of peace is will always lid.

It will always lid until all of atomic bomb in this world gone.

Actually, i want to see the moment this flame off.

PS : We go to Miyajima to, it is a great place, but nothing special for me there so i didn’t put it in my diary.
