Everyone needs a hiding place. Some of us need a quiet room to meditate and pray to God. Others need a corner to be alone to examine progress and to solve problems in life. Some desire to have companies to laugh and jeer, and to forget or reduce stress. Still others want a place to stare at something to calm down after having a sudden or intense quarrel. Some just go to sleep. Many get drunk and smoke too much. Others prefer to have peace marveling at God's creation.
We cannot deny the fact that we all need to find somewhere or someone to share our problems, loneliness, disturbances, distress, love, joy, peace or whatsoever. Whatever we do, let us not do any harm to ourselves and others.
My resolution for the New Year 2009 is to calm down and to do things constructive and beneficial to all, that I may worship and enjoy God to the fullest. Amen.
