Being Salt and Light in the world
Be the "salt and light" in the world (Mt5:13,14)                                                                                                                     

Pause for Thought :  Start off by thinking for a moment where your influencing opportunities are.  There will be many more than you may at first realize.  Jot down a list of the times and places where you come into contact with other people. Next think about some unrealized opportunities - chances that you have to come into contact with others within the community that would be relatively simple to do. Thirdly, go back through this list and reflect for a moment on which offer the greatest opportunity to influence others : 

Jesus challenges us to be salt and light - to influence the world, and to be seen to be doing so...
Treat your staff with Respect

We have all heard of the ancient saying “do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” I’m sure that where you work you see and hear managers abusing their staff everyday. Or worse still, you might be one of them. Worse again, you might not even realize you are doing it! 

This is a story shared by A.B (not real name) & taken from reliable sources:: 

A few years ago, after leaving the telecommunications industry, I decided to change direction and try working in the fast food industry. While undergoing ‘training’ as a store manager with one fast food giant, the training manager told me that the best way to get anything out of the staff is to yell at them. I could not think of anything more demotivating especially for teenagers which is what 90% of the staff consisted of. I watched him do it for weeks and I don’t remember hitting our daily targets at all with his approach. At the same time, there were shift managers who didn’t use his approach and a lot of the time they met and exceeded their sales targets. Then it was my turn to start yelling at the staff. The yelling was to make them move faster, to stop talking, not to move from their stations etc. Mind you, all this yelling the customers could hear as well. I couldn’t do it his way. Instead I did it my way and that was to talk to them with respect and try to motivate them and talk to them like adults and not kids. He off course didn’t like it and we had words from time to time about it. In the end I told him I didn’t like the work ethic in this company and that he can keep his job and that I quit. When the staff heard about that, most of them thanked me for sticking up for them and they were sorry I was leaving. I was there for less than 3 months and had gained their trust and respect in that short space of time.
There is absolutely no reason under the sun to treat your staff with disrespect in any shape or form. You as the manager are the authority figure and the example. If you disrespect your staff, don’t be surprised if they treat you with disrespect in return. Nobody likes to be yelled at or embarrassed in front of their peers no matter how dumb their mistake is. Never forget where you came from. Think back to when you were lower on the corporate ladder and how you felt when someone in authority treated you with disrespect. I bet like me, you were waiting for your opportunity to give it back to them first chance you got!

The bottom line here is simple. Treat your staff as you would like management above you to treat you. Nobody likes to be disrespected or to be treated with contempt, no matter what rung you hold on that corporate ladder.

I'm Lost for a while...
 Friendship Alive In Memory

 I'm dedicating this post to my beloved buddy who had drop onto my profile and saying she's gonna leave Sipitang town & move to her hometown. Huhu..My others buddies & I felt very sad & they began to cry (one of them told so..she's already crying during the conversation..hehe) Me myself also felt sad & the feeling of sad is different because soon she's no longer going back to this town anymore unless she want to. Even though she's working far away yet we still can meet during her holiday. But this time it is so different. As if we cannot meet again after she's moving. Though this place is ordinary place (not much interesting place to go), but this place is the place where we built the Friendship long time ago (since we were kids). we have so much same interest. we loved to laughs (wherever, whenever,whoever with us, anytime, anywhere.hehehehehe) there's no limit for it & till now & always & forever we'll be the same. ^__^

When you feel sad and betrayed
Who can you count on every single day?
When you feel lost and alone
Who will be there for you in every way?

When you've made mistakes and bad decisions
Who can you count on to tell you you're wrong?
When you feel you can't go on
Who will be there with a feel-better song?

Look into your heart and you will find
That person you can trust is not far away.
Look deep into yourself, don't give up,
For if you do, it's yourself you'll betray.

When you're looking for answers
To all your questions and dreams,
There is one person you can count on,
It's impossible, I know, it seems.

But take a few moments to look deeper inside.
Look into your heart and there you will see.
You'll be surprised when you find out
That you've been looking at ME.

Thanks to God for the gift He gaves me.
The memories between us will never fade till the last breath. I Love You my dear Friends;))

Let us Pray
Dear God,
Thank you for being with us in the good times and the bad times.
Thank you for making us better persons and more able to serve You.
Help us to live by faith in you every day. Amen

Dear heavenly Father up above
please take care of our little one everyday and every night. Let us lead her to Your Holy Light so she can spread Your holy word. Let her walk in Your heavenly love. 
Lord above, I pray for her guidance, 
let her obey the one who love her so until it's time to go.
So she'll have You in her heart forever. 
From Your ways, she'll never part. 
May the loves from us, her family will bring her more happiness & blessing from You all the way. Amen

Something is killing our children.  It is much more widespread than AIDS, but not enough is being done about it.  Every two minutes a child becomes a prisoner of war, taken hostage not by some stranger down the street or from some enemy land, but by someone they know and love.  Home should be safe and secure, but sexual abuse is a secret crime with no witnesses!  Corporations have security guards, but family homes have nothing to protect the children inside!  Kids are screaming out the pain of their abuse in alternative high schools, juvenile homes and treatment centers using what I call "The Silent Scream For Help,".  Many are just forgotten.  Most victims repress some or all of their abuse, leaving them to feel like bad kids in a society that doesn't even care enough to help them.  Someone needs to listen!

There is No End to Love
LOVE  is...
very subjective! very broad term. I believe Love has no end, the ''LOVE' itself has no limit in its definition. We cannot count how many definitions of LOVE. Don't just count it through what you ever heard & what you have seen before. It is countless as we also could not count how many LOVE we have. LOVE has no price to put on it & we cannot buy it with millions of money that we have(Suzie say that). As for me, I define LOVE in my way and in what I believe in. I bet you guys out there also have your own perceptions/perspectives/view/opinion/definition/understanding on LOVE. Well, different people has different view right? ermm..I'm talking bout LOVE because when I lost LOVE,  I gain more LOVE from peoples around me through my beloved family and friends and those concern peoples surrounding me. I admit that sometime when feelings too much being hurt, we tend to think that we are the most unlucky and unloved people. LOVE doesn't end yet although we think its over. Be grateful for each LOVE around you. Even a smile from a stranger also called LOVE (but it depends on your perception). In Malay it is says that  "senyum itu sedekah". I think its not appropriate to say a smile as a charity. How if you gave peoples a fake smile & vice versa? dishonest smile? So can we called smile without sincere as a charity? hurmmm again its depend on people views. By the way, I would like to share my new LOVE...I gain another LOVE recently. Not that recent actually..could be few weeks ago when I receive this little buddy in my family. (it's a puppy actually) but a puppy also deserve to be loved right? Of course! Animals also a living things from God creation..So, this little buddy came to my life & I love him so much.  through animals/pet I realize that LOVE don't choose.>Loving is Caring< why don't we share our loves to animals..rather than to think human loves 100% all the time. heheh....
LOVE has no end and will not even the world will end someday.. 

Lot's of Love,
