You know that feeling that you haven't done anything measurable the whole day?!

There's a whole list of things to do, and I've been busy working on them the whole day ...
But why issit that I can only cross out 1-2 at the end of the day??
It's annoying to have little pebbles slip in when you're trying to fit in rocks.

Sigh, never mind, TOMORROW WILL BE BETTER.
Uncharted territory is good. :)

I've just finished reading Fellowship Of The Ring.
Now where's my copy of The Two Towers ...

On a lighter note, it's really something how fast God can move when you set Him a challenge.
I casually mentioned that if it was His will, then do please open up THIS particular way.
And He did it the very next day.
Now for THAT other hurdle ... hahaha.

A piece of "Gao-Gao-Ah-Ma"

Dad says they are gonna publish a book of memoirs that my late granny wrote.
He even wrote a foreward for it, which he read to me, and I thought it was really good.
But apparently, the book's only for family members and friends, because it's meant as a thank you to acknowledge all the people who have helped her and the family over the years.

I asked why don't we publish it large-scale and promote it to schools so they can use it as a literature text?
After all, granny used to be a Chinese teacher and principal, so I'm sure her writing is ichiban, even though I've yet to read it.
He says they'll see how it goes.

And then he said they are thinking of translating it into English.
I quickly jumped at the chance and said, "I can do it!!"
And truth be told, I am really excited at the thought of it.

dao dai

Sometimes comfort and assuring reminders come from the most unlikeliest places.
God works in very very funny ways.

Sidetrack: I've been a little hooked on Jolin Tsai's "Rewind," ever since Carol sang it and told me that Jay Chou wrote it.

In Your promises, our hearts turn brave

"And now, God, do it again—
bring rains to our drought-stricken lives
So those who planted their crops in despair
will shout hurrahs at the harvest,
So those who went off with heavy hearts
will come home laughing, with armloads of blessing."

(Psalm 126:5-6, The Message)

"They who sow in tears shall reap in joy and singing.
He who goes forth bearing seed and weeping
[at needing his precious supply of grain for sowing]
shall doubtless come again with rejoicing,
bringing his sheaves with him."

(Psalm 126:5-6, Amplified Bible)

Moving from the realm of the valuable into the realm of the precious.


Now is the time when heaven blends with early saints
The world resounds as angels sing "Our God reigns"

I give my all to You
I give my all to You

From heaven's throne, Your river flows to this land
And on this rock, foundations lay
Here we stand

I give my all to You
I give my all to You

Pouring out this treasure You gave
In Your promises our hearts turn brave
I will arise and lay down this sacrifice
As we're building Your house on high

Your kingdom come, Your will be done
On earth as in heaven

Heightened sense of smell

I smell KFC chicken everywhere I go ... not a good sign. :)
