Earth Day 2010

Yesterday was Earth Day, since 1970 it's been a day set aside to remember and appreciate the Earth's environment, and all of our roles within it. As a way to help appreciate and observe our environment, I've collected 39 recent images here, each a glimpse into some aspect of the world around us, how it affects and sustains us, and how we affect it. Here's hoping everyone had a great Earth Day yesterday. (39 photos total) See photos..

Gift, Blessing and Virtues

♥ Life is a gift.. Health, safety, happiness, sufficiency is a blessing.. Problems, sharp gravel, high winds, high cliffs, steep valley is part of the formation of our character to make us a good person, wiser and even better.. Thus, there is no wasted grace, blessings can be thankful for, and virtues can flow like a fountain .. ♥

♥ Hidup adalah anugrah.. Kesehatan, keslamatan, kebahagiaan, kecukupan adalah berkat.. Masalah, krikil2 tajam, angin kencang, tebing tinggi, lembah curam adalah bagian dari pembentukan karakter utk bikin kita jadi baik, bijaksana & lebih baik lagi.. Dgn demikian, anugrah tidak sia2, berkat2 disyukuri & kebajikan mengalir bagai mata air.. ♥

He Will Carry You

Dedicated to my dear cousin 'ogut'
You're not alone.. I'm here for you & HE'll always be with you
Jesus loves you & I <3 u 2

There is no problem so big, God cannot solve it
There is no mountain so tall, He cannot move it
There is no storm so dark, God cannot calm it
There is no sorrow so deep, God cannot soothe it

If He carried the weight of the world
Upon His shoulders
I know, my brother, that He will carry you
If He carried the weight of the world
Upon His shoulders
I know, my sister, that He will carry you

About Easter

Jesus' Resurrection

Easter (Old English: Ēostre; Greek: Πάσχα, Paskha; Aramaic: פֶּסחאPasḥa; from Hebrew: פֶּסַחPesaḥ) is the central feast in the Christian liturgical year.[1] According to the Canonical gospels, Jesus rose from the dead on the third day after his crucifixion. His resurrection is celebrated on Easter Day or Easter Sunday[2] (also Resurrection Day or Resurrection Sunday). The chronology of his death and resurrection is variously interpreted to have occurred between AD 26 and 36.
Easter marks the end of Lent, a forty-day period of fasting, prayer, and penance. The last week of the Lent is called Holy Week, and it contains Good Friday, commemorating the crucifixion and death of Jesus. Easter is followed by a fifty-day period called Eastertide or the Easter Season, ending with Pentecost Sunday.
Easter is a moveable feast, meaning it is not fixed in relation to the civil calendar. The First Council of Nicaea (325) established the date of Easter as the first Sunday after the full moon (the Paschal Full Moon) following the northern hemisphere's vernal equinox.[3] Ecclesiastically, the equinox is reckoned to be on March 21 (even though the equinox occurs, astronomically speaking, on March 20 in most years), and the "Full Moon" is not necessarily the astronomically correct date. The date of Easter therefore varies between March 22 and April 25. Eastern Christianity bases its calculations on the Julian Calendar whose March 21 corresponds, during the 21st century, to the 3rd of April in the Gregorian Calendar, in which calendar their celebration of Easter therefore varies between April 4 and May 8.
Easter is linked to the Jewish Passover by much of its symbolism, as well as by its position in the calendar. In many European languages, the words for "Easter" and "Passover" are etymologically related or homonymous.[4]
Easter customs vary across the Christian world, but decorating Easter eggs is a common motif. In the Western world, customs such as egg hunting and the Easter Bunny extend from the domain of church, and often have a secular character.
