Certainly So

Boat Quay @ Night

On Saturday, K asked me out and I was easy... to snap pics of our beloved Bay! View pics here.

It certainly helps to have company to advise and inspire each other - though it's mostly K doing the advising & inspiring.

On Sunday, church followed by dinner @ G's - certainly great to catch up with friends over "middle america" pizza dinner.

Then headed home to pack for reservist - certainly not great to have life disrupted for a week. Positivity's certainly key.

Thinking from the heart



Trawled the Web for used car adverts and this little bugger captured my heart - nearly. My exotic automobile dream burst when dad came in and pointed out all the impracticalities, e.g. hard-to-find spare parts, leaded fuel, and most of all, $$$.

One day perhaps... *Ed strokes picture on monitor*

The Promise



I love you
And i will never leave you
Nor forsake you
And i love you
And i will never leave you

You are my child
You are my child
When you're down
When your heart is broken
When no one seems to care
Please know that i love you

Cuz you are my child
You are my child
And i want to wrap my arms around you
And i want to wrap my arms around you
And say everything,everything will be alright

You are my child
You are my child
Let me wipe those tears from your eyes
Let me wipe those tears from your eyes

Come to me
Come to me
Come to jesus
Come to him
Come to jesus
Come to him

Righ There Waiting



Oceans apart day after day
And I slowly go insane
I hear your voice on the line
But it doesn't stop the pain

If I see you next to never
How can we say forever

Wherever you go
Whatever you do
I will be right here waiting for you
Whatever it takes
Or how my heart breaks
I will be right here waiting for you

I took for granted, all the times
That I though would last somehow
I hear the laughter, I taste the tears
But I can't get near you now

Oh, can't you see it baby
You've got me going crazy

Wherever you go
Whatever you do
I will be right here waiting for you
Whatever it takes
Or how my heart breaks
I will be right here waiting for you

I wonder how we can survive
This romance
But in the end if I'm with you
I'll take the chance

Oh, can't you see it baby
You've got me going crazy

Wherever you go
Whatever you do
I will be right here waiting for you
Whatever it takes
Or how my heart breaks
I will be right here waiting for you

I Sojourn



Last week was surreal, this week felt low. It's funny how one prays for help and then avoids it when it's freely offered...

Recently read Mitch Albom's Tuesdays with Morrie, the author's personal account of watching his ex-professor succumb gradually to a generative disease while soaring continually above the tragedies of life.

Teared at the sad ending. For sure, it's reminded me of one important thing in life - family. Although essentially Buddhist in outlook, I do agree with Morrie on at least one thing: "When you learn how to die, you learn how to live."

Just 2 hours ago at the airport, I briefly recounted all the trips in my life. Not many, but certainly all are memorable.

Life Without Limits



For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
Jeremiah 29:11
It was an inspiring encounter last night with Nick Vujicic, a 25yo Australian born without arms and legs. Even as my mom recovers from her hysterectomy, his life story really assured me that God has a greater purpose for me, my mom, and my family.

Nick's message: Victory is promised even when God doesn't change one's circumstances.

Him and children: I think I was asked by a little boy, "But how do you tie up your shoelaces?" I'd get some kids brave enough to look up my sleeves and asking me where I'm hiding my arms.

His struggle: There were times when I felt depressed and angry because I couldn't change the way I was... I went to Sunday School and learned that God loves us all and that He cares for you... I didn't understand that if God loved me why did He make me like this? Is it because I did something wrong? ...I wanted to end my pain and end my life at a young age...

Begin with the end in mind



Here goes!

Colleague quipped, you'll probably be thinking of your mother, father, friends towards the end... Hmmm...

I'm a Literature Nerd

What Be Your Nerd Type?
Your Result: Literature Nerd

Does sitting by a nice cozy fire, with a cup of hot tea/chocolate, and a book you can read for hours even when your eyes grow red and dry and you look sort of scary sitting there with your insomniac appearance? Then you fit this category perfectly! You love the power of the written word and it's eloquence; and you may like to read/write poetry or novels. You contribute to the smart people of today's society, however you can probably be overly-critical of works.

It's okay. I understand.
