It’s a place where love is true
Where the light of God shines through
Though we fight against His blood that’s poured
Our trembling lips all soon say, “Lord.”
(Love the singing today)
When one have sweet thoughts, she needs to write them real quick, to remember all the sweetness later in her life.
I was walking down the road after work thinking that I’d just relax and enjoy the concert after a tiring day (or week, or month). Felt like losing my calling for life and being drifted.
Little I knew that there’s a surprise waiting for me. If I had seen my cellphone earlier (which I gratefully took from my room when I realized I left it), I would know there’s something fishy about these 3 girls calling me at about that hour. But I went straight to the rooftop without any funny thought.
Well, I realized then, it’s my (long awaited, long prepared) farewell. The decoration put up by Yvette, the food Charmaine cooked, the cards and the gifts they showered me, the sharing and mostly the LOVE. They just reminded me of what is meaningful in my life and how God guides me in each step that I take. As much as I feel lost now, things will be fine, coz God will save the day (too much watching Powerpuff Girls).
I can’t write all the things they and I shared coz it’ll take a lot of time and words, but I just want to write about the way they love like there’s no tomorrow. I’m proud of Campus, of the NUS group who put the farewell up and willing to give their best. It means a lot when people put their hands together just to love someone, and it’s special coz they do it for me. Thanks for being my friends and teach me all the lesson of life.
Not the digit shown in your bank account
Sometimes it’s the good food you eat, but it’ll only last a while
A lot of times it’s the good company that you have and all the laughters
But in the end, you will go back to your room and realize, you’re an individual, alone.
Well.. not so alone, you have your tv and internet nowadays who can ‘connect’ you to the world, but they don’t complete you.
There is only 1 best way to make sure you are not alone.. be with God.
This is what I call an unexpected day. Starting with a busy schedule in my mind, all my plan to meet my mom was shattered by her flight delay. Running to and fro to settle toilet emergency (I seriously will share the full story only to a few chosen ones), rushing in cab to church, etc. I didn’t even think things like these could happen to me in one morning. Picking up Brandon in the airport was good, well2, how will I know that fate is turning to the other side? My mom’s connecting flight to HK was delayed. The jetstar officer was quite rude to her and made her frustrated but finally she got to stay out of the airport to catch flight tomorrow morning. I get to spend time with her… :) And it’s more precious coz one only knows something is worthed when she loses it. Let me close with a good night and a prayer o my awesome God who let this happens.
can simply mean a decision to go off the office no matter how many things left undone (since it won’t finish anyway), spending time with good buddies who have the same vision and come home to be welcomed by a mix of black tea+vanilla+peppermint I ‘invented’ last night. Hot shower and a pick from my new batch of lotions (now that I have 6 fragrances to choose from) just topped it up. I learn that it feels good to be welcomed with something nicely prepared, though it means just pulling out an emergency plan to cover up mistakes. Maybe I should make my office more welcoming by preparing things for the next day, no matter how tired I am that day. I’ll make sure I have a good quiet time to equip myself that day with spiritual thoughts. This is the time to make a challenge as a chance to be a better person.
is lost due to work. I feel so exhausted and I have enough looking at the piles of paper that says I still have lots to do, people who keep asking me when I can finish this and that and exhausted team-mates who haven’t eaten and slept properly for days. I am ready to explode everytime someone push my button.
It makes me think how meaningless my life is if I only depend on work. I’m happy I decided to go out for 4 hours on Saturday to meet Veron and spent a good time. I went to church and enjoy praising God, yet I don’t compromise my deadline.
I do hope this never-ending deadlines and submissions will be over soon, though it doesn’t seem like it in the near future. I always love my job, it’s just this project is so unlovable.
Is it wrong if I’m not happy when I do good for others and I get an average in return? I can’t help feeling so. I always appreciate people who give the best and even my friends know that I will do the best I can. Guess I just need to forgive my own expectation to others.
made me think.. how if I am suddenly stripped off everything around me. How if I find myself not known by my friends around or my family? Sometimes I do want (annoying) people to leave me alone, but when that really happens, will I be happy?
I don’t need to be grateful of my job only when I lose it, of my friends when I miss them, or even my family when I realize my existence.
I think people are closer to God and one another during tough times, but let’s not make God forced to do that.
So stressed over the weekend when I found out I did a huge mistake in one of my previous design. sigh.. Will try to be responsible and do my best to fix everything, though it’s easy to run away with it. I will just remember 1 powerful phrase from someone who stuck in worse situation in the Bible. “But David found strength in the Lord his God.” - I Sam 30:6b. Shared it to others and need to apply it.
but they smile with their heart, showing caring thoughts through every little deeds, instead of putting them into words. Others may have a vibrant look, but they may be capable of being deceitful and malicious, cheating or faking their existence.
I’m happy to know a long lost adult family member I can look up to.
