Appreciating Kenshin Himura

Kenshin Himura—the Battousai, the man with X-scar-mark in the face, the monster turned into an angel (Yes, for me his kindness is just heart-melting.)

I know a lot of people love watching animes and reading mangas. I don’t blame them for loving those–for I am also one of them. I even grew up admiring and crushing on anime characters instead of my “human peers”. It even gets to the point of falling in love with them.

I really have a lot of anime crushes. They include Shinichi from Detective Conan, Tamahome from Fushigi Yuugi, Takishima from Special A, Tsukimori from La Corda d’Oro, yeah, you name them! But one character that I really, really love the most, (I mean he really got my heart–bull’s eye!) the one who always caught me off guard with one strike of his sword, the one I would imagine myself dating with—is Kenshin Himura.

Kenshin is really one character that stands out in the anime world. Aside from his ideals and principles, his funny moments with the rest of the characters were just hard to forget. Those “funny moments” he had shared that are quite paradoxical to what he really is on the inside.

One reason why I love Kenshin is that everytime I watch him, he is actually making me feel like Kaoru herself. It’s quite inexplicable but I guess some girls could relate to this. Once they watch their TV crushes, they start to see themselves as the leading lady of their crush. It’s like identifying themselves with the lady character.

Well, Kenshin is just fun to watch. Though he’s not that expressive towards Kaoru, the viewers/readers could still sense that something is going on between them–which makes them crave for more. I just kind of feel sad that the anime series does not have the final ending that is written in the manga. I hope they would continue making more of those episode until they get to the “real” finale wherein Kenshin and Kaoru finally had a child named “Kenji”. (I hope the producers and staff of Rurouni Kenshin could get to read this. Fingers crossed.)

It was also in the manga where I confirmed how Kenshin loved Kaoru the most when Kenshin saw the dead body of Kaoru (which is actually not the real body of Kaoru) and cried out her name as “Kaoru” without “-dono” (Ms. Kaoru) for the first time. Kenshin was really heartbroken and even gave up living his life for he has found no reason anymore to continue living (though he had recovered from the pain after). It was also in the manga where Kenshin mentioned that Kaoru is the one most important person in his life. Megumi also told Kaoru before leaving that Kenshin has finally chosen her. He did not choose Megumi nor Tomoe but he chooses Kaoru to be with him. (Honestly, I keep reading those lines over and over again. I just can’t contain the feelings of giddiness for Kaoru.)

Truly, Kenshin is one of my ideal men in terms of personality and attitude towards women. Though I know that Kenshin Himura is not real, I hope that those watching him will make him an inspiration to be a better man. Kenshin is the one who firmly stick to his ideals and fight for those who could not fight for themselves. He also has the heart to change a person (especially the bad guys) to realize and actualize his life to become better. Kenshin is really one of those guys whom we can say, “He’s the man!”

I really would like to write more but I guess it’s now with you to find out who Kenshin is (if you’re not familiar to him yet) or argue with me (if you know him and disagree with what I am talking here) or better yet, agree and share in my giddiness. 🙂

Been Born Again

What was the one experience that completely changed your life? What happened? How did it change your life?

Reading this question, I could not think about of any answer except this one: my life completely changed when I became a born-again Christian.

I would not say that I stopped being imperfect when I became a Christian. All I wanted to say is that my perspective in life has completely changed, taking a 180-degree turn. The old was gone, the new has come. When I asked Christ to come into my life, I have never felt this kind of overwhelming peace overtaking me. It was unnatural in an extraordinary way. I felt that  I was cleansed and purified differently. I felt so light and so joyful. The happiness was too much for me to handle that I suddenly burst into tears. I just can’t contain it.

My life became meaningful. I finally found my life’s purpose. And it is to serve Him joyfully.

Before, I was never satisfied with my life. I always tend to crave for more. I was too selfish to think about others. I was a dreamer in a very arrogant way. My life was anchored to the world. I lived my life the way the world would want me to live it. I want to be accepted by it but it never did after I have tried so hard to please it. It always end up with the same result–the world is never pleased with me.

I grew tired and weary trying and trying. Until Christ came into my life and everything has changed. I’ve come to realize that I have attached myself too much in this world. I have wasted my life trusting the world with its impermanence. But the Lord told me that it’s never too late. So without any doubt, I let go of my worldliness and cling to Him instead. I have never felt so secure in my life knowing that Christ is always holding my grip. Even when I’m losing it, He never gives up on me. At that point of time, I could say I was indeed loved by God and His promises remain true.

Truly, nothing/noone could ever changed our lives completely. Only Him and Him alone. We just have to surrender and trust Him and He will take care of the rest. 🙂

 

Patiently Waiting

 

I love writing songs. It is something that takes me beyond my own personality, my own world. Simply like my little outlet of expressing my thoughts and emotions.

This song I wrote is entitled “Waiting”. It is one of my favorite written songs. It tells about someone I was praying for to be with in my life. It depicts waiting with patience and full surrender to the Lord– that may the desires of my heart are still in accordance to His will.

These are my song’s lyrics:

Verse 1:

First time I saw Him I was not aware of the feelings

But as time went by, I felt something strange inside

Then I prayed to the God of Love, What is this? You know I’m afraid to love.

Just tell me so I’d be glad to know all Your plans

But for now…

Chorus:

Lord, help me guard my heart as I grow closer to him

And Lord, I’d be willing to wait no matter how long it takes

Oh Lord, help me guard these feelings, these precious feelings

Now I’m praying while I’m waiting, Oh Lord,

for Your perfect timing

Verse 2:

Lord, take away these feelings if they’re not from You

‘Cause I’d never get tired of waiting as long as You want me to

But then Lord, if he’s the one for me, I’ll rejoice

And still I’ll never cease to pray

I know Your plans are way better than mine and I trust You

So for now… (Repeat Chorus)

 

Now my years of waiting has finally paid off and the Lord has indeed provided me with someone I could love forever.

Are you waiting for that special someone too? Ask God to grant you the patience and strength to wait for that special person.
