"Why treasure someone who is already gone?"
This CNY taught me this lesson. How many "See you soon".. "Let's meet up soon".
Mere greetings than heartfelt intentions.
As much as I would like to take the splinters off others.. personal ones remain.
It is a pleasant reminder of how short life really is.
Well, it has been quite a while. reducing my blog entries after I bought my own journal.
One thing I learn is to look towards the future. As i watched the news about this singapore titian Dr.Goh. I was like "Wow!" one man can change the lives of generations with his vision and ideas. From National service(which is kinda ZzZz for many)transportation,bird park,education..etc) That transformed Singapore structure and policy. It just makes me wonder what kind of life will we be remembered for? I guess.. only during ur funeral will ur affirmation be displayed haha. But hey, so long as you are breathing, we can still make a difference! Slowly but surely
I was bitten by a mosquitoes after the feet-washers training last sun. It makes me wonder.. Do you procrastinate when a bloodsucking bug lights on your skin? Well in most cases, you would give the critter the slap it deserves. It taught me one thing, to be equally decisive with anxiety. The moment a concern surfaces, deal with it. Don't dwell on it. I've been busy with 'To-do' and work. I feel like I've lost my touch with being pastoral.
Time to act on it. "If my heart has gone cold, there your mercy unfold.
As you open my eyes to the things yet unseen as You open my eyes.
Compassion than just mere works. As schedules get pack with inks and meet ups. My heart let it be for your glory. For my guys.Yu han,Wilfred,Nelson,Chen yee&dominic that gave me a chance to learn.
"Do everything without complaining or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation, in which you will shine like stars in the universe as you hold out the word of life-in order that I may boast on the day Christ that I did not run or labour for nothing. But even if I am being poured out like a drink offering on the sacrifice and service coming from your faith, I am glad and rejoice with all of you. So you too should be glad and rejoice with me" -phil 2:14
Time for me to slap that laidback attitude and kill some critters in my life before it sucks the life out of me.
Went for a run around Sengkang and found a newly open park :D Loads of kites flying up in the sky.
The loss of mystery has led to the loss of majesty.
The more we know, the less we believe.
No wonder there is no wonder.
We think we've figured it all out.
Strange, don't you think?
Knowledge of the workings shouldn't negate wonder.
Knowledge should stir wonder.
Who has more reason to worship than the astronomer who has seen the stars? Than the surgeon who has held a heart? Than the oceanographer who has pondered the depths?
Have been working too hard lately haha. Push my physical body too much at times like last sunday. When I ran half a marathon from East Coast to the Tanah merah and back to East coast. I stopped buying a cup of tea and siting at some quiet corner to chill. While looking at the waves "His glory appears" played in my itune. Tears followed. Looking back, it reminds me of a story of Elijah. A man filled with faith and challenged hundreds of Baal worshippers single-handedly yet feared a Queen. Ran for miles(or days) God reminded Elijah about the stillness rather than quakes and waves in life. I enjoy running bec it force me to stop as I catch my breath and think. Than to live my life like a hamster in a wheel. Christmas is comin, what caught my attention wasn't the lights and big christmas tree rather, "I Am the Light of the World"-John9. This billboard was at Tangs Orchard. gimme oil in my lamp Lord, keep it burning. "Jia you!"
Cg last thurs. Used up some of my friends army credit to purchase powder for games. And last week, our combined Cg we played it. Basically I aged instantly as my hair was covered with white powder.
