What is Sex all About?

Image
That is the question, is it not? 
Now the participants of Choice were given a few topics on which we were to stage a play and this was the topic given to my group. One can only imagine the teasing which took place when our peers realized that this was the topic given. I mean how does one stage a play on sex ? It took me awhile to think of a story-line, a few days of musing before I finally decided that I would write a story on relationships of which Sex would be its main theme. 
I  wrote a story on the heartache, grief, and triumphs of one girl who overcame an abusive relationship of which her boyfriend had attempted to coerce her into having sex with him and when she refused, he began to cheat on her. Now why did I write the story this way instead of perhaps touching on other issues such as prostitution etc ? Its because through my own experience and that of others I have come to see that so many of us have experienced deep sorrow and anguish in the relationships we have been in. Man…

My Journey

There are many times in our lives, where we tend to lose our way..or be directed to a different path. Often we sometimes tend to lose ourselves..our way on how we truly are as an individual

That was how my life was ....ever since I lost myself.

I  was dealing with a different person within myself and no matter how I tried, I could never find my true self ..that funny bubbly girl that I am.

For a couple of years I begin to find ways to gain my courage and begin looking for myself. My mum found this article on Choice and advise me to go.Thus packed was I and off on my way ..

As the days pass, I begin to slowly discover my true self and sooner the same me begin to arise from the depths of the ocean. I started to feel the same person I was.

After Choice weekend, I begin to feel the changes immerging inside of me..I was becoming the same bubbly girl and slowly tearing the mask I was wearing . It was a change that I had long for a long time

Now, even though there are still some time in whic…

CEKL 102 - The beginning of a journey

Image
God works in many mysterious ways, in His own perfect time. He has brought us together as a family for a reason and now it is time to journey with one another. The relationships we now have are not a one off thing, following which we disappear but it is meant to be a someone we can belong to as we go through the ups and downs of life together.


If Choice was the reset button for you, it was only the beginning and not the end of this journey. There are always two questions that comes to mind when forming a bond with your CEKL batchmates. Are you willing to get to know a person? Are you willing to share your life with others? Don't let the sharing stop with Choice but continue to grow with one another. Sometimes it is only a matter of picking up the phone to call.

And now... tadaaa...... this is what we did after Choice...


Meeting up again was the best thing ever!!!!





And some awesome night sessions....






All sins can be forgiven except one

Image
This particular bible verse caught my eye today and I thought of sharing:

"So I tell you, every sin and blasphemy can be forgiven--except blasphemy against the Holy Spirit, which will never be forgiven."

Matthew 12:31,  Mark 3:28-29, Luke 12:10


So what is actually blasphemy against the Holy Spirit? In Catholic teaching there are six sins that blaspheme against the Holy Spirit. They are:


Despair (believing that one's evil is beyond God's forgiveness);Presumption (glory without merit, that is, hope of salvation without keeping the Commandments, or expectation of pardon for sin without repentance)Envying the goodness of another (sadness or repining at another's growth in virtue and perfection);Obstinacy in sin (willful persisting in wickedness, and running on from sin to sin, after sufficient instructions and admonition);Final impenitence (to die without either confession or contrition for our sins);Impugning the known truth (to argue against known points of faith, an…

Get well soon!!!

Choice Chicken Soup - Yum2!

Greetings to all Choicees. I just wanted to share a story I have recently heard...

A protestant pastor was talking to a catholic priest one day and he was very curious about the Eucharist. The pastor who was a very devout man of God asked the Catholic priest if he really believed the teachings of the catholic church that the Host was the real body and blood of Christ and not just a symbol. The priest was puzzled at this question and inquired further...

The pastor then said that, if he were the one who believed in the real presence, by now he would be crawling up the aisle to receive GOD.

I feel that sometimes the way we conduct ourselves in mass, like being indifferent, distracted and failing to show our reverence, it is as if we don't truly believe that God is really present in the Eucharist. I am equally guilty of denying God like Peter did 3 times before the rooster crowed. Everything becomes just like a lip service.

We need to prepare ourselves thoroughly, body, mind and spir…

Getting to know our 101choicee #2

We take this opportunity to acquaint ourselves with CEKL 101 members by inviting them to share about their life's passions, God and St. Peter’s dog πŸ˜œπŸ˜œπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸΆπŸΆ

1) what is choice to you?
Choice to me is about exercising the free will that we have been gifted with. And at CHOICE, you will be making them.

2)  Share your experience or one moment you like being away from kl.  
Just the idea of being somewhere new is interesting to me.

3) If St. Peter had a pet dog, what would its name be?
Dog

4) What would you  say to the single adults who are interested to join CHOICE
As the program is tailored to young single *adults*, you will be expected to have lived a little and to approach the programme with maturity. But as the name of the programme says, Make the Choice. And expect to gain from it.

Bernard

Choice 101 Bak Ku Teh Session

Image
My journey before Choice was scary because my first thoughts were that this camp was preparing me to be a nun, lol. 

It started like this: when I arrived, I was welcomed by wonderful and cheerful faces that made me feel very welcomed. On the first day, I got to meet many new faces. I felt no regrets meeting everyone and it was amazing, as we journey together for this 3 days. 

I felt so happy, blessed and excited of what's going to happen next. I got to experience the presence of the Lord during this journey. I took this three days to actually find out things that I was yearning to know. The talks made me reflect in every area of my life. As the last day ended it was sad to say goodbye to all my new friends I got to meet.

After choice 101, I was so thrilled we had a Whatsapp group to reconnect us again woo-hoo!! I later got to meet my fellow participants and other choicees. We organized a night out for fellowship with a Bak Ku Teh session and it was amazing, …

Now all we need is your prayers. We cannot do this alone. If you cannot be there with us, at least join us in spirit: pray a decade of rosary, meditate in front of the alter or blessed sacrament, offer a mass for us. Thank you for supporting us in whatever way, no matter how small it is. Blessing us with your time is an honour for us and God will bless you too.
