GOD OF A SECOND CHANCE

~ Hezekiah Walker ~

Lord I need to feel the touch of Your hand
Your will for my life I want to understand
Lord forgive me like only You can
For your the God of a second chance

Lord I’m tired of the way that I am
In Your love I want to live and stand
To adhere to Your every command
For You’re the God of a second chance

Show me
All of my wrongs
Forgive me
And make strong
Oh save me
Restore my song
For You’re the God of a second chance

You gave me
A second chance
You forgave me like only You can
You gave me
A second chance

YOU ARE MY ALL IN ALL

~ Bob Pitts ~

You are my strength when I am weak
You are the treasure that I seek
You are my all in all
Seeking You as a precious jewel
Lord, to give up I’d be a fool
You are my all in all

Jesus, Lamb of God
Worthy is Your name
Jesus, Lamb of God
Worthy is Your name

Taking my sin, my cross, my shame
Rising up again I bless Your name
You are my all in all
When I fall down You pick me up
When I am dry You fill my cup
You are my all in all

Jesus, Lamb of God
Worthy is Your name
Jesus, Lamb of God
Worthy is Your name

YOU

~ Jim Brickman ~

I never felt alone, I was happy on my own
and who would ever know there was something missing?
I guess I didn’t see the possibility, it was waiting all the time
but it never crossed my mind, till you opened up my eyes

Now I all I think about is you, in my life, in my dreams,
in my heart I know it’s true that I belong with you
Because of you in my world, in my arms, I have everything
and now I can’t imagine what I’d do without you

I never thought love could be such a curiosity
What attracted you to me was so unexpected,
but it was waiting all of the time and it never
crossed my mind, till you opened up my eyes

You, in my life, in my dreams,
in my heart I know it’s true, that I belong with you
Because of you in my world, in my arms, I have everything
and now I can’t imagine what I’d do
I can’t imagine what I’d do … Without you …

ANNIVERSARY

According to Wikipedia definition (Yes, I’m a big fan of Wikipedia!),

An anniversary is a day that commemorates and/or celebrates a past event that occurred on the same day of the year as the initial event. For example, the first event is the initial occurrence or, if planned, the inaugural of the event. One year later would be the first anniversary of that event. The word was first used for Catholic feasts to commemorate saints.

So, based on above definition. Soon it’s going to be my 7th anniversary with this particular friend of mine. I can’t really recall the exact date we met. But it was somewhere around June or July.

As for what to commemorate, it was definitely an unforgettable evening. Well, at least to him. He got sick for one whole week following that evening. Severe sore throat and fever. So I heard. And it was for an obliviously stupid reason. I’ll tell you the story shortly.

It all started one fine evening. Two of my college friends have just moved in to a new apartment in town. And I visited their new place with another college friend. We’ve been shopping for the whole day and nearly dropped dead. The last thing I wanted to see is their unfriendly housemate. The housemate did not even have a basic courtesy to say a simple hi or smile. He just walked straight to his room and closed the door. Bum!

I was kinda annoyed. But did not bother too much about it. Until my friends said that their housemate is going to join us for dinner. At first I totally opposed the idea. But unfortunately, due to this polite nature of my friend’s personality. And the fact that another friend was starving. We ended up having dinner together. Or were forced to, to be exact.

It was quite late that time. And the nearest available place was this cafe. I happened to love their strawberry cheese tarts. So at least, it could lessen my supposedly bad mood due to the presence of their annoying housemate.

We sat down, had our orders. And hey, it turned out that their annoying housemate was not that annoying after all. He was quite funny, actually.

I can’t remember what triggered me to play a prank. But well, I did it nonetheless. I offered to take plain waters for all. Then I mixed some tabasco and pepper inside. The cafe was dark. So you couldn’t really see what’s inside your cup. And just as what I expected. Their now-not-so-annoying housemate drank it all, in one single shot!

My friends were a little bit smarter, since they knew I wouldn’t be so kind. To take plain waters for all without any ulterior motives. Nobody drank my tabasco and pepper water except for their housemate. Which now happen to be my 7th anniversary friend I was talking about earlier. Following that evening, he was down with sore throat and fever for one whole week. I only learnt about this much later though.

A lesson that I believe he will always remember. Don’t easily trust strangers.

I’ve mentioned many times that anniversary is the time whereby we commemorate a past event. So, he should have drank another cup of tabasco and pepper water, shouldn’t he? Haha! And I don’t think I’m being heartless here. I’m simply following Wikipedia definition. It’s a technically correct way to celebrate anniversary, ain’t it?

Anyway, Happy 7th Anniversary! =)

MY CONFESSION

~ Josh Groban ~ Album Closer ~

I have been blind, unwilling to see
The true love You’re giving
I have ignored every blessing
I’m on my knees confessing

That I feel myself surrender
Each time I see Your face
I am staggered by Your beauty
Your unassuming grace
And I feel my heart is turning
Falling into place
I can’t hide it
Now hear my confession

I have been wrong about You
Thought I was strong without You
For so long nothing could move me
For so long nothing could change me

Now I feel myself surrender
Each time I see Your face
I am captured by Your beauty
Your unassuming grace
And I feel my heart is turning
Falling into place
I can’t hide it
Now hear my confession

BALM IN GILEAD

~ Traditional African-American Spiritual Song ~

There is a Balm in Gilead
To make the wounded whole
There is a Balm in Gilead
To heal the sin-sick soul

Some times I feel discouraged
And think my work’s in vain
But then the Holy Spirit
Revives my soul again

If you can’t preach like Peter
If you can’t pray like Paul
Just tell the Love of Jesus
And say He died for all

THE BLOG (THIS BLOG)

Now it’s time for me to talk about the blog (THIS BLOG). Why I started this blog? One fine night, I was chatting about nothing with this friend of mine. Then suddenly we had an idea to start writing regularly again. (Yes, again!) We used to have plenty of blogs before. It was many years back then. We did write regularly, until we gradually stopped for no apparent reason. It’s just that we lost interests in the blogs. Or the blogs lost interests in us. So, this time we agreed to create a new blog, start afresh on a clean journal.

The basic idea is to get ourselves to be more discipline. We agreed to write on certain topics on a weekly basis. So far we have been committed. (Yes, something to celebrate!) Though I have to say that (apparently) somehow we anyhow write about useless nothing, at times. Obviously, you can judge by the quality of previous posts. It’s either shallow or just writing for the sake of meeting weekly deadline.

Hold your thought for a second, there is a good point here. Starting something and writing about useless things are still better than doing nothing. I always look at the glass half-full, ain’t I? (Haha!)
