Merry-Go-Round

Talking to Havoker* while uploading the songs onto my blog and he remarked that not contacting HD for 4 days is no big deal. 

I think it’s all a matter of relativity.  Given how we used to meet 5 days a week, and sometimes a few times a day, a coverage blackout of 4 days, is practically a death sentence to the friendship.

But it takes 2 hands to clap.  I’ll rather accept that than have unrealistic expectations of a relatively new friend, and having my spirits go subterranean later.

Interesting how after going round a big circle, i’m likely to meet Flayer some time this week.  Even more interesting was that Iwok messaged me on MSN today… and offered some encouragement when i told him i did not have the best of weekends.  Haha. 

But!  The most interesting big roundabout that happened today was…

Sometime in December last year, Akima wanted to introduce her bf’s colleague to me.  I said ok but we never got to meet up ‘cos everyone was busy, etc, etc.  Then last Mon, when i met Akima for lunch together with the rest of the Anyhow-Insure-Anything alumni, she said that her bf’s colleague asked her what happened to the lunch we were supposed to have.  She asked if i were still keen on meeting up.  I said no problem.  Always good to know more people right?  Especially if they’re in the banking sector.  Never know when they might be my client.

So the lunch was set for today.  I was late.  Akima’s bf and colleague were already seated at the foodcourt when i arrived.  After i got my food, i made my way to the table but couldn’t see how the colleague looked ‘cos his back was facing me.

As i placed my tray down on the table, i turned to look at him.  I nearly fainted.  “Jk?” I said.

He was stunned.

It was all i could do to contain my laughter.  Hahaha.  I’ve known Jk since 2004 ‘cos we worked in the same company before.  Hahahahaha.  I don’t know if Jk was embarrassed or what but he left earlier when we went for coffee after lunch.  Hahahahahahaha.

Oh well… that was a funny incident that spiced up my Mon.  Heh.

Sleepytime!

“These days of confused situations, this night of restless remorse”

Be Ye Glad (by Glad)

Ah… a song with the most comforting lyrics… i remember Kor used to sing this… 🙂

 

In these days of confused situations
In this night of a restless remorse
When the heart and the soul of a nation
Lay wounded and cold as a corpse

From the grave of the innocent Adam
Comes a song bringing joy to the sad
Oh, your cry has been heard and the ransom
Has been paid up in full, be ye glad

Oh, be ye glad
Oh, be ye glad
Every debt that you've ever had
Has been paid up in full by the grace of the Lord
Be ye glad, be ye glad, be ye glad

From the dungeon a rumour is stirring
You have heard it again and again
But this time the cell keys they are turning
And outside there are faces of friends
And though your body lay weary from wasting
And your eyes show the sorrow they've had
Oh the love that your heart is now tasting
Has opened the gates, be ye glad

So be like lights on the rim of the water
Giving hope in a storm sea of night
Be a refuge amidst the slaughter
Of these fugitives in their flight

For you are timeless and part of a puzzle
You are winsome and young as a lad
And there is no disease or no struggle
That can pull you from God, be ye glad

Oh, be ye glad
Oh, be ye glad
Every debt that you ever had
Has been paid up in full by the grace of the Lord
Be ye glad, be ye glad, be ye glad

Oh, be ye glad
Oh, be ye glad
Every debt that you ever had
Has been paid up in full by the grace of the Lord
Be ye glad, be ye glad, be ye glad

Lord of All (First Call)

Love this song from choir days too… when Kor and the other guys used to sing it.  Sigh.  🙂 

 

 

(written by Phill McHugh)
Lord of All, of the heights
Where faith can lift the trusting heart
Lord of all, of the depths
Where fear would tear such faith apart
 
Lord of all, of the nations
Quick to anger, bearing arms
Lord of all, of each child
Held by it's mother safe from harm
 
CHORUS:
Lord of All
Of all seen and unseen things
Of the universe that sings
And calls you Lord of all
Lord of all
Of the power not to sin
You have always been
And always will be
Lord of all
 
Lord of all, of a peace
That we can draw with every breath
Lord of all, of provision
For each need in life and death
 
Lord of all, of the turnings
Of the seasons and the earth
Lord of all, of the love
That purchased man a second birth
 
CHORUS
 
Lord of all 
Of the power not to sin 
You have always been 
And always will be Lord of all
You have always been
And always will be 
Lord of All
