Salmos 19:1

~los cielos cuentan la gloria de Dios, el firmamento proclama la obra de su mano.

~ 天は神の栄光を語り告げ、おおぞらは御手のわざを告げ知らせる。

Flower~ Isaias 40:8

The grass withers and the flowers fall,    but the word of our God endures forever. -Isaiah 40:8

Hoshimo Tomihiro

Few years ago I came across a little card my Japanese friend gave me, with a really nice poem, really meaningful poems. I decided to search the author again and I found it. 

The author is Hoshino Tomihiro. You can google and find more information about him, but this is a quick summary. He became paralyzed from neck down one day as he was a gymnastic teacher. And during his struggles he found God and as he spent years depending on others, he observed flowers that were brought to him and started painting and writing. 

This is one example I found on the internet. If you want more information about him, please google! 

Hoshino Tomihiro

At the time when I thought life was most important, it was painful for me to live. 

On the day when I found there was something more important than life, it became joyful for me to live.

ear/throat infection

So, I've been sick since last Saturday. I first thought it was a quick cold passing by. I only had a sore throat which wasn't that bad, and those usually go away in a day or two, after I take lots of vitamin C and water. But, sore throat didn't go away, and it got worse. I got ear pain. My throat was even more painful, hard to swallow anything.

Anyway, I went to the doctor and got Antibiotics and gargling med for the throat and I also put it on facebook, to see how other people deal with this horrible infection.

Here are some of suggestions I got:

- Hot water with honey and lemon
- Medicated lozenges
- Breathing some steam (head under hot towel over the sink while running super hot water in the sink)
- Antihistamine to stop ear fluids coming out
- Tylenol to relieve pain
- Ginger chicken soup
- Gargle mouth with salt and water every 1/2 hr (if possible)
- Crush a garlic clove in olive oil and put few drops in the ear (twice a day)
- 400mg ibuprofen for anti inflammatory and 650mg Tylenol for pain
- Warm towel on the affected ear to relieve pain.

I also found some websites about using coconut oil (few drops in the ear). Does it work? maybe I'll try it next time but I really really hope I'll never ever get this infection again. It's sooooo painful.

From Pearl Harbor to Calvary by Mitsuo Fujida

Not too long ago I heard about ChristianAudio site where they give one free audiobook a month. And one month the free book was this book, From Pearl Harbor to Calvary. What a right timing. I've been thinking a lot about meeting with Japanese Christians, reading the Bible in Japanese, and how I can help my family know about God. This book was amazing, a great testimony and I hope I can get it in Japanese.
