The Amazing Grace That I Learned From Life

Amazing Grace-Music video by Anni Noke

“Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me
I once was lost, but now am found
Was blind but now I see
Was Grace that taught my heart to fear
And Grace, my fears relieved
How precious did that Grace appear
The hour I first believed
Through many dangers, toils, and snares
We have already come
T’was Grace that brought us safe thus far
And Grace will lead us home
And Grace will lead us home

Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me
I once was lost…

Journey Of Life With Black Coffee

A coworker friend of mine, his name is “K.K.” suggested that I drink my coffee black, without cream or sugar. He said it’s good for my health and that I should avoid putting things in my coffee. I gave it a try and took his advice.

At first, it was hard for me to drink my coffee black because it was very bitter. Little by little, sip by sip, bit by bit, the taste would get better. I try to drink it every morning. I feel better and it no longer tastes bitter to me. Yeah! I can do it…

Fearing…Tearing…

Crying…Trying…

Moping…Hoping…

The coronavirus crisis the world faces today has changed the lives of people everywhere. The situation gets worse every day as more people get infected.

I wish I could travel to the future in a time machine like in the movie “Back to the Future” and have all this craziness gone.

Here are some ideas from Phra Paisal Visalo on how to…

What I learned from observing the life of cats.

One early morning day, I saw a cat outside my building in the snow. He walked lightly on top of the snow as if he was floating. Outside was silent, only one cat walking. He tried to find shelter. I saw him go under a car, yeah he found his spot. He walked in one side and came out the other. Then, he crossed the railroad tracks.

I am curious about him. How can he survive the cold? What does he eat? Does he have a home?

Cats are resilient animals. They say cats have nine lives. …
