Fallen Leaves

In a crooked little town
They were lost and never found
Fallen leaves, fallen leaves
Fallen leaves on the ground

I hitched a ride until the coast
To leave behind all of my ghosts
Searching for something,

I couldn't find at home

Can't get no job, can you spare a dime?
Just one more hit and
I'll be fine
I swear to God, this'll be my one last time

In a crooked little town
They were lost and never found
Fallen leaves, fallen leaves
Fallen leaves on the ground

Run away before you drown
Or the streets will beat you down
Fallen leaves, fallen leaves
Fallen leaves on the ground

When it gets dark in Pigeon Park
Voice in my head will soon be fed
By the vultures that circle round the dead

In a crooked little town
They were lost and never found
Fallen leaves, fallen leaves
Fallen leaves on the ground

I never once thought I'd ever be caught
Staring at sidewalks, hiding my track marks
I left my best friends or did they just leave me?

In a crooked little town
They were lost and never found
Fallen leaves, fallen leaves
Fallen leaves on the ground

Run away before you drown
Or the streets will beat you down
Fallen leaves, fallen leaves
Fallen leaves on the ground

An Evening Thought..

Just before I left my office this evening... suddenly this thought come.. maybe I too tired or stress or whatsoever...

Day by day struggle with life, with cares and worries overwhelmed. Why is this so hard? Why do I get so discouraged?What is this disappointment I feel?How do I find peace during strife?

What is life, that I must live it?What is a day, that I must endure it?What is an hour, that I must spend it?

What is death, that I should grieve it?What is pain, that I should feel it?What is pleasure, that I should seek it?

Help me, Oh Lord to seek Your mercy,Help me, Oh Lord to seek Your grace;Help me, Oh Lord to seek Your glory.

Help me, Oh Lord to surrender all to You!

Celebrating Valentine With God’s Love

"Be My Valentine." This is a phrase that conjures up a lot of different images associated with the celebration of Valentine's Day. Cards with hearts and little poems on them. Candy and flowers given to someone you love. We all want to hear that phrase. It simply means "you are loved." God loves us and wants us to be His Valentine. The love that God gives us is not like the world's love. The World's love is as sturdy as the paper that most Valentine cards are made of. God's Love is not a flimsy cheap imitation. It is the real thing. It is an all giving love that was and is willing to suffer and die for our deliverance. How we want to love others without God’s love? Difficult right? If we received the God’s love and shared to others …. It might changed other people lives including ourself.. how we can celebrate this Valentine with God?

Give our life to Christ: God is love and the source of true love. God loved us enough to die for us and St. Valentine loved God enough to die for God's Truth. What better way to celebrate Valentine's Day then to commit or recommit our lives to Christ.

Stand up for the truth and proclaim the Gospel of God's love: Sometimes it is dangerous to stand up against injustice, hatred, and prejudice. Sometimes it is difficult to oppose the world's view of things to proclaim the truth of God's Love. But that is what Valentine did! And that is the miracles….

Die to self for another: The Bible says that this is love that a person lay down their life for their friends. Have you ever been asked ‘Will you die for your friends?’ or ‘Will you stand up for your friends?’ Not many will say yes without thinking…in a clear cut case of life or death many would die for the ones they love. But in our day to day lives few are presented with a life or death situation. Take an example, every day we presented with opportunities to die to self. In other words to sacrifice our wants for the wants of another. Try in this Valentine's Day. Sacrifice what you want for what your loved ones want.

Just a little sharing…. :)

Life Is Like The Show

One day she called me with tears..or should I say a tear of giving up. She told me all the trials that she faced within this few years. She loose her good job, being dumped by her fiancee, sold her car and house and now live with her mother, live in debts and nowhere to turn to. She giving up her prayer, mad with God, acts like an idiot and doing something stupid..and I asked why.. she want the ‘world’ look at her!! Why this world so cruel to her. She had accept all the trials and now tired cause it never end…

what can I say to her? Keep praying and never give up? It is hard to face our trials with our own strength and keep praying without knowing when it will end right? but that’s exactly what God expects us to do. God knows that real spiritual growth can only come from and through the trials that He allows to come our way. Sometimes it’s very difficult for us to understand. There is a great value in any trials that we faced coz we’ll learned the mistakes and to thank God we can start anew… :)

I love this poem (anyway, I don’t know whose author is…cant remember where I took it..hehehhe).

But we wouldn’t have the rainbow
If we didn’t have the rain;
We wouldn’t know the pleasure
If we never tasted pain.

We wouldn’t love the sunrise
If we hadn’t felt the night;
And we wouldn’t know our weakness
If we hadn’t sensed God’s might.

We couldn’t have the springtime
Or the yellow daffodilIf we hadn’t experienced
The winter’s frosty chill.
And though the brilliant sunshine

Is something God has made.
He knew too much could parch our souls
So He created shade.
So God’s given us a balance:
Enough joys to keep us glad,
Enough tears to keep us humble,
Enough good to balance bad.

And if you’ll trust in Him you’ll see
Though yesterday brought sorrow,
The clouds will part and dawn will bring
A happier tomorrow.

I don’t know why I write this..maybe is reminder to myself and as a sharing to all my friends.. hehehhe… Life is like a show. It'll never end...

Listen To Your Heart offend. For this week only, I heard and keep listen a topic about ‘love boundaries’. I wonder..why? maybe because it is February ka? Hehehhee… when having lunch with friend this afternoon, suddenly this topic come out. They talked about their friends and family problems. Yesterday night when I was in church..the ladies sitting at my back also talking about this…yesterday morning when I’m in a Post Office.. the young lady with her friend also talking about this forbidden love..I overheard la actually… hehehhehee…. ‘forbidden love’ huh? Well…

It is about "forbidden" love, like two people who truly deeply love each other, but can't always be together of the stupid restrictions imposed on them by society, family, religion, culture, age gap and etc. Some people said always Listen To Your Heart and realize that true love is the most important thing, and that it transcends everything, all those meaningless boundaries that people draw and restrictions societies impose don't have any meaning and don't matter. Love knows no boundaries.

To me the term of listen to your heart is like listening to the concience that God has show us His loves through the very deep of our heart. "Listen to your heart and it will never lead you wrong". It’s tough to actually listen and understand what our heart is saying because its not always something we WANT to hear but it is definitely something that more people SHOULD be hearing….not easy to accept right?

Hopefully they will know what they should do.. and to let God make a way in whatever decision they should take…

Letting Go In Valentine..

Many people have their stories about relationship with loved ones either it is family, partner, friends or colleagues. The stories of being hurts, cheated or betrayed. And some people have experiencing something terrible themselves and carry a burden of guilt and shame. Hurt can be especially excruciating if it is inflicted by someone we thought cared for us or someone who is supposed to love us. This sort of incongruity can make us crazy. We just can’t believe it. It makes us so overwhelmed, confused, shocked or wounded that we become fixated on our misfortune. We just can’t get over it. It’s easy to feel self-pity or even to become sour on life, bitter and twisted. If we are the injured party we might rage at injustice, feel hatred for those who hurt us, construct elaborate fantasies of revenge. We can become obsessed with our pain.

I have a friend who have been betrayed by her own good friend. The one who supposed to be part of her life. The double betrayal was more than she could endure. Like many people her life is in limbo and will remain so until she manages to let go of her pain and outrage. She is the only one suffering and she is hurting herself as least as much as her happy time with her ex. I’m not only talking about her (but also to me hehehhehee… )

For our own sakes, for peace of mind and our future happiness we must let go of what we cannot change and forgive for all the wrong things happen not just for them but also for ourself. We need to mentally, emotionally and perhaps physically detach and disengage from the people who hurt us, the events we cannot change, the problems we cannot solve. We know that nothing and no one can change what is past. Obsessing about past events locks us into reacting rather than acting independently. It reduces our freedom. We are a slave to the past.

The good things that we can do is to revenge it by living well, live in the moment and allow life to happen, let go of regrets about the pasts and fear of the future for what it might be happen and refuse to carry the burden of bitterness and resentment which stop us from being happy.

‘God grant me the serenity. To accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference’

Since this is month of Valentine the love thingy one.. I like to wish Happy Valentine to all people I love and to be love. But very seldom people want to wish ‘Happy Valentine’ for those who hurt them kan? hehhehe…anyway forgiving love is the greatest love of all. Even it is difficult but it’s worth for life…. Even though I might not celebrate it, but I’ll treasure all the loves which is given to me and shared it around..hehehheheee..
