Have you ever lost something special to you? Maybe something that wasnt simply special to you, but something valuable as well? Do you know the sinking feeling that you felt when that item was lost? Unfortunately, most of the world felt that same way during the 1940s. Most of us know about the huge loss of human life during the Second World War, but the Nazis stole other, far less important, things too — like art. Really rare and expensive art. It is estimated that 20 billion dollars worth of art was stolen from Poland alone. 

There was a group of men and women from fourteen countries who were put together called The Monuments Men to research, find, and preserve the artwork the Nazis stole. There was almost nothing they wouldnt do to retrieve these stolen masterpieces. They sacrificed, searched, fought, and didnt rest until they were confident they had found every lost masterpiece they could. Do you know God sees you as a distinct masterpiece? Do you know God sent Jesus to retrieve you, a once-lost work of art? God sees you as special, valuable, and irreplaceable. 

How can you see yourself differently with this new realization? How will you respond to what Jesus has done for you?


“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.”

‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭2:8-10‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Quote from the devotional plan “DISTINCT “


你有沒有失去過對你來說很特別的東西? 也許一些東西對你來說不僅很特別,而且也很有價值? 你知道當那件物品丟失時,你有一種下沉的感覺嗎? 不幸的是,在 1940 年代,世界上大多數人也有同樣的感覺。 我們大多數人都知道第二次世界大戰期間人類生命的巨大損失,但納粹也偷走了其他遠不那麼重要的東西——比如藝術。 真正稀有且昂貴的藝術品。 據估計,僅波蘭就有價值 200 億美元的藝術品被盜。

 有來自 14 個國家的一群男女聚集在一起,被稱為“紀念碑人”,以研究、尋找和保存納粹偷走的藝術品為宗旨。他們為了找回這些被盜的傑作,盡其所能、不擇手段。他們犧牲、搜索、抗爭,直到他們確信他們已經找到了他們能找到的每一個丟失的傑作,他們才肯罷休。 

你知道上帝將你視為一個獨特的傑作嗎? 你知道上帝派耶穌來找回你,一件曾經因為罪而失落的藝術品嗎? 上帝認為你是特別的、有價值的、不可替代的。

 有了這些新認識,你能以不同的方式看待自己嗎? 你要如何地回應耶穌為你所做的事呢?


“你們得救是本乎恩,也因着信;這並不是出於自己,乃是神所賜的; 也不是出於行為,免得有人自誇。 我們原是他的傑作,在基督耶穌裏造成的,為要叫我們行善,就是神所預備叫我們行的。”

‭‭以弗所書‬ ‭2:8-10‬

It is not easy to get a hero’s name be registered in a book of history.  

It is much hard to get a hero’s name be recorded in a book of poetry.  

I love the poem about your father, it is so powerful and beautiful.

So I ask your help to save it from being obliterated! Forever pitiful!

Dear SirPlease pardon my rudeness.

It is about printing a new poetry book. My grandson refused to do a long-ago promised work. Now he told me he is too busy to do it. I am seriously sick are dying! The book can surely yield profit. We can split the profit. Self-publishing and print-on-demand books do not need us to invest money.  Please tell me your email I can send you my file to prove my old edition book’s value.  They have raised to double price and are still selling around the world, Chegg and iFlipd both rent them in all America as college textbooks. albertyung, hot mail.

Wish you all the best.

Would you please tell me your email address through my email address formerly told you, so I can send you my files? Should I tell you once more, in case you have lost it? Would you please tell me also your telephone number so I can talk to you by words? I am seriously ill and bed ridden, cannot type much. Best Wishes

Thank you. I'll talk to you later. Difficult for typing.
If you have a iPhone or ipad, you know you can use it's voice input in both English or Chinese rather than typing. tty2021/11/30 00:29回覆

This seems a great cause, meant for progress, not regress. Nonetheless the recovery process should not impose on others with yet further criminal acts.  崇拜
