Wow February

It's already Feb!

Lots of birthdays coming up. ><

Getting into the rhythm of juggling all the stuff I gotta do - but one thing i learnt is to keep assessing my priorities! It's funny how most of my time is spent at work, and in school, or even with friends when my higher priorities are my family and time with God & for sanity's sake, myself (though of course, QT is really good enough to satisfy that). Sometimes it can't be helped, but most of the times it's cos i didn't think before i committed.

Everything's a bit of a struggle this week. Then I realized that in the midst of everything that's becoming a bit overwhelming or impossible to do, I forgot to talk to God abt it. This week's really shown me how busyness & hard stuff can reveal what you truly desire. When homework piles up, when I'm mixing with different people at my workplace - i see that i desire very much to be successful by my own ability, that i like to work because of a sense of accomplishment that has nothing to do with God, and also that sometimes i want others to define myself instead of having the responsibility of deciding. I see how easy things can draw me away, make it easy to backslide even though I may go to church - but in simple things, before someone leaves, they have already backslided; in their values, in their thought-life, in their speech, in what they do when no one's looking.

Pst Ulf: 'This is what sanctification is about: becoming increasingly like Him... This nature of Jesus is the life that the Spirit conveys to us by grace.'
--> Phew~! I can't and I'm not expected to do it by myself!

In the same article: 'If the devil can keep us away from Jesus so that the cross becomes nothing more than a 'plus sign,' a bridge in an illustration or an equation that adds up, then we will lose our love and appreciation for what actually happened at Calvary.'
--> And i realised that though i know this, it doesn't stop me from blaming God for my dryness when it is I who won't stir myself up to pray and be humble enough to ask for help.

ok, off to cell group! :D

As Sy Rogers said today, there are things we can look back on, our memorial stones, that encourage us and give us strength to move forward. I rmb a time I was so far away and so tired of people in general, cos really it's relationships that really get me down - n when Jean would walk in on me crying or just sitting and not even having the energy to do stuff, she would listen n say 'just cry out to God alright?' and that would be the last thing i wanted to hear. sometimes you know what to do, and you know what the advice will be, but when the emotions are not there, an…

beauty and the beast

Best movie ever!

I admit, I was totally sceptical at what I thought was another attempt to spoil a good thing. But musicals... haven't regretted watching a single one, from Chicago, Burlesque, Les Miserables (though I only found out it was fully a musical midway)! We live and we learn :)

Ok, here's how good it was. I went back to watch it a second time. Hee.

It's definitely one of those movies to watch alone - so you can cry at all the odd moments. I gather from the odd chuckles and silences from my fellow movie-watchers, that we were all touched by the movie in one way or the other. None of us wanted to live till we saw the end of the credits. You have to leave immediately when the lights come on though, so you can go remove any traces of the tear tracks.

Loved Belle for being both feisty and just lovely. Emma Watson, you danced beautifully; I was half-in-love with you myself! And of course Beast and the eye-rolling, bumbling-ness of him.

The best of it all was the famili…
