Tick Tocking Away



Day after day, time flies. The papers ramble on about global climates gone wonky. Watch thee now the hands that tell the hour. Lest one gets caught with his pants down.

Silence


Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever. Let the redeemed of the Lord say this-- those he redeemed from the hand of the foe, those he gathered from the lands, from east and west, from north and south. Some wandered in desert wastelands, finding no way to a city where they could settle. They were hungry and thirsty, and their lives ebbed away.

Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble, and he delivered them from their distress. He led them by a straight way to a city where they could settle. Let them give thanks to the Lord for his unfailing love and his wonderful deeds for men, for he satisfies the thirsty and fills the hungry with good things.

Psalm 107:1-9
In the midst of dryness, I find cool assurance. Looking back into the murky past, I wonder how far these tired feet have trod. And how far more must I press on. Silent is the sound of one crying in the wilderness.

Support Homeground?


Homegrown phone brand SEVO.

The SEVO P809 provides dual SIM card slots and a 3-inch touchscreen display. It comes also with a 1.3-megapixel camera, Bluetooth with A2DP support, microSD expansion card slot and functions as a USB drive. Both handsets, however, work only on the GSM 900/1800 network, which is really quite unheard of these days.

SEVO is a "new-generation company of mobile phones, offering the latest models with fruitful features, better quality and cheaper products"

Hmmm...

Telepresence



From Continuity Central: According to the Economist Intelligence Unit, three of the key business trends for the next 15 years will be globalisation, atomisation (businesses fragmenting into smaller and more distributed operational units) and knowledge management... Recent research from occupational psychologists Pearn Kandola has shown that while dispersed teams may take... an average of 17 weeks to overcome the lack of trust created between multi-cultural teams due to ‘virtual silences’ – a failure to respond immediately to e-mail and voice messages – and a lack of face-to-face conversation... The take up of technologies such as telepresence, [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Telepresence] instant messaging and video over IP will help to address many of these communication problems.

Here's the irony: Being visibly online but not wanting to be contacted.

Grand Old Dame

aka National Stadium. Was there today for a visit. Though my memories of it are few, I recognise that it be both a place of nostalgia and national identity.

Ever So Clearly?



For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him.
2 Chronicles 16:9

Ever so often, things simply fall in place and you realize... He's been up to something.

Wonder and gratitude ensue.

And a deep desire to be and do more.

Captivated, I am.

When the music fades



tin·tin·nab·u·la·tion (tnt-nby-lshn)
n. The ringing or sounding of bells.

As the music fades, as confetti linger in the air, and as tired feet journey home, the calling is clear in spirits, stirred-up strong. The great commission, the cultural mandate, the call to brokenness.

Enoch walked with God 300 years... then he was no more, because God took him away.
Genesis 5:22 & 24


Gotta walk the walk, never know when you might just end up in heaven.
