HELLO JAPAN?! January 23, 2010

i dreamt that i went to japan last night and bought my self some cool, funky old school cameras.

i woke up happy.

till i realised it was but a dream.

but i still want to make it to japan! i’ve always heard/seen so much about it.

on a separate note, i got myself a new watch.

i set my eyes on it 2 weeks ago, having procrastinated for the longest time to get a new one because the straps of my two favorite watches gave up on me.

pretty bummed considering both have lasted more than a couple of years, the latter setting me back at a bargain of only 10bucks and i’ve never changed its battery once in 2 years.

its still running and i don’t know what to do with it. i don’t really know where to go to change the strap and things like that. any advice?

anyway, about the new watch – it’s a casio. i was looking at another model but he (the watch uncle) sold it off 2 days earlier. boo. he was pretty shocked that i wanted it cause he said it was unpopular and aunty-ish. but i loved it and might still wanna see where i can get it though he made mention that there’s hardly anywhere that carries that old model anymore. i’ll tell you if i do get it though :)

and so he showed me the next on the list of unpopular models; albeit still baffled why i didn’t want something more well received. having a penchant for things uncommon…i didn’t want to scare him further by telling him that sometimes i choose things with imperfections….i chose this (my first pictures of it).

and so i went to work this morning, with a skip in my step, happy and content with my new accessory and lo and behold, my colleague (funny i never noticed) has EXACTLY the same watch as me.

we laughed as i shared with her this story because A. she knows my liking for one of a kind stuff and B. she loves the popular. we both concluded that since we chose the same watch, we must have great taste ;)

i still love my new watch.

whether you are common or one of a kind, i like you because you are mine.

it’s THIS or THAT. January 15, 2010

it’s funny how i posted this quote on my facebook seconds ago and it got some thinking that there’s either some mayhem of some sort going on in my life or i’m in a middle of some crisis.

it’s THIS or THAT because i mean THIS but you think THAT.

it kinda happens sometimes, (maybe you think too much?) not too often; thankfully.

but i like to leave it as that (no pun intended).

sometimes leaving things a mystery is much easier than always having to justify yourself.

i think i will live longer :)

this was what i wrote –

“it’s hard to get to your destination when your eyes are always on the map. sometimes you gotta let go and let your heart lead the way.”

what do you think?

xoxo

p.s. i’m in no sort of crisis whatsoever and am loving every single moment of where i am & what i’m doin

Christ in Me

by Max Lucado

Like Mary, you and I are indwelt by Christ.

Find that hard to believe? How much more did Mary? No one was more surprised by this miracle than she was. And no one more passive than she was. God did everything. Mary didn’t volunteer to help. What did she have to offer? She offered no assistance.

And she offered no resistance. Instead she said, “Behold, the bond- slave of the Lord; may it be done to me according to your word” (Luke 1:38).

Unlike Mary, we tend to assist God, assuming our part is as important as his. Or we resist, thinking we are too bad or too busy. Yet when we assist or resist, we miss God’s great grace. We miss out on the reason we were placed on earth-to be so pregnant with heaven’s child that he lives through us. To be so full of him that we could say with Paul, “It is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me.” (Gal. 2:20)

What would that be like? To have a child within is a miracle, but to have Christ within?

To have my voice, but him speaking.
My steps, but Christ leading.
My heart, but his love beating
in me, through me, with me.
What’s it like to have Christ on the inside?

To tap his strength when mine expires
He Still Moves Stonesor feel the force of heaven’s fires
raging, purging wrong desires.
Could Christ become my self entire?

So much him, so little me
That in my eyes it’s him they see.
What’s it like to a Mary be?
No longer I, but Christ in me.
