silence my love
Tammie says Smile!
Hello there, Stranger!
Welcome to my humble little blog.
The name's Tammie, but friends call me Tam (not 'thumb').
Who am I, you ask?
I'm not that smart top-scorer girl in your class.
I'm not that pretty lass you always see on the streets either.
I am passionate, stubborn and emotional.
My absolute most favorite thing to do is hanging out with people I care & love.
My passion burns for Jesus & photography.
I wish to travel more and see more.
This blog was created so I get to jot down my feelings.
Happenings in life.
That is, if I'm not too lazy to update ;)

Day #9 Your beliefs
I've been a Christian all my life.
But my parents have not.
My dad was a teen when he started going to church. My grandpa was so angry when he found out that he drag my dad and threatened to scold the pastor in church. But my grandpa never got to scold the pastor that day because he couldn't find that church. My dad said a large lorry was blocking the church, so grandpa couldn't find it.
I believe that wasn't a coincidence.
Usually, people, especially Asians, think that Christianity is a 'Western religion'.
Actually, to be precise, Jesus was born in Jerusalem, Israel. Israel is Middle East. Middle. Not East, not West :)
It's just that most white people are Christians. But I wouldn't bet on that now. Most white people these days prefer not to have a religion.
Believing in Him doesn't mean I give up my culture and my roots. I still celebrate Chinese New Year. I still eat with chopsticks. I still have a Chinese name :)
I like to think that my faith, Christianity is not just a religion. It's a relationship, with God.
It's about talking to Him everyday.
It's about reading His word daily.
It's about learning to trust Him in difficult situations.
It's about being a better person for Him.
I believe in a baby born centuries ago, named Jesus. I believe he died on the cross, not by mistake, but to complete the mission he came to earth for. I believe he was the son of God. I believe in heaven and hell. I believe that there's salvation in Jesus.
Some people may find may belief hard to believe or accept. Others may think it's utter crap.
All I can say is, I hope you'll respect my belief, as I will respect your's :)
Okay, I guess that's the most basic stuff about my beliefs. I don't usually blog about my beliefs because I don't want people to feel like I'm shoving my faith in your face.
Pardon me if you think so, I am merely describing my faith in this post.
Till tomorrow, see ya! :D
