I'm in Gold Coast!
Sunday, September 24, 2006

By the time most of you read this, I will be in the land of sand, surf, and hot, hot, HOT surfer boys! YAY!!!! And before you get any ideas of me being desperate, lemme tell you, that HOT guys in Adelaide are really, really scarce. Seriously. It's not funny. But then again, maybe the beach is not all it's made up to be. Will update on the HOTness factor.
I'm a little apprehensive about the rides, though...after my experience with the Extreme Speed Machine at the Adelaide Fair, I'm not sure my stomach can take it.... But oh well. What doesn't kill you... Just pray there are no "accidents", ok? I'd rather have all my limbs intact. If I even live.
And if I don't, lemme tell you all that I love you. (I should call my parents and tell them too....)
Girls, you were the best. Maybe it could be like SATC. Let's be each other's soul-mates, and men could be these really great people that we hang out with. Hehe...
I'm sure everything will be fine. But just in case, you know? ;)
Much love.

Psalm 121
Saturday, September 16, 2006

A song of ascents.

1 I lift up my eyes to the hills -
where does my help come from?

2 My help comes from the LORD,
the Maker of heaven and earth.

3 He will not let your foot slip -
he who watches over you will not slumber;

4 indeed, he who watches over Israel
will neither slumber nor sleep.

5 The LORD watches over you -
the LORD is your shade at your right hand;

6 the sun will not harm you by day,
nor the moon by night.

7 The LORD will keep you from all harm -
he will watch over your life;

8 the LORD will watch over your coming and going
both now and forevermore.

You Are a Social Blogger!

Your blog is more of a semi-private affair for your friends.

ok, now i'm superdamnkaopissed coz i wrote this superdamnkaolong post abt the entire fair, and it's GONE!!!!!!!!!! wtf!!!!!!

The Royal Adelaide Show

This is super cool! I didn't expect much, but I swear, my jaw dropped. For the performance on the night I went, one of the guys actually totally let go of the bike. No hands. Awesome stuff.

As for the precision driving, it was quite impressive. Here's my dedication to Chai-Chai. Hehe...it's not really clear though.... you guys would've loved it. You have to see it for yourselves though...

Unfortunately, I couldn't catch a video of the Big Boy's Ballet. It's basically 4 mini excavators "dancing" in time to the music. You won't believe how super adorable it is! Imagine them dancing to the waltz in The Nutcracker! Now imagine them balancing on their front two wheels, and spinning around. Uhuh. I'm not joking.
And when they bounce around, while balancing on the front wheels, it looks like they're doing a spinning "turtle"! You bboys out there will understand. Hehe.... these boys are pretty skilled. Wish I had a video to show you... oh well... maybe next year. =P
All in all, I had a great time at the fair. Wish you guys could've been there though... =)

My Prayer
Monday, September 04, 2006

This is my prayer for you:

Dear Father in heaven,

May You bless and keep Your child in Your tender loving care.
Make Your face to shine upon him.
I pray that he will come to know You, and to love You.
That he will have a living and active, intimate relationship with You.
I pray Father, that You will be the author of his life.
That he will surrender everything unto You,
Reveal Yourself to him,
May he see that a life without You,
Is not a life worth having.
I pray that You would grant him wisdom, and understanding,
That he may face the trials of his life on earth.
Lord You have given us everything we need to face all adversity.
I pray that You will grant him Your grace in abundance,
That he may see and believe in all that You are capable of.
I pray that he will come to know You as a father. As a lover, and a friend.
That he will come to You, with his innermost secrets.
You will be his confidante.
I pray that You would allow him to experience You in all Your magnificence & glory.
That he may call himself Your son,
And experience what it's like to be called a child of God.
Father I pray, that with Your spirit in him,
His life will change forever.
I thank You, Jesus.
For the life that You have given to each of us.
Not just the gift of a physical life.
But of a spiritual life, that we may reach out and touch You.

In as much as You have given us,
May we give our lives back to You.
Thank you, Jesus.


Of kindness & caring
Friday, September 01, 2006

Today, I was amazed, touched, unspeakably moved by the kindness met by people who I can hardly say that I'm close to. In times of frustration and utter desperation, God planted these people at the perfect time and place to tell me that He's there, and that He cares for me. That He's looking out for me. I cried an abundance of tears which have been welling up in me since I've left my beloved homeland. And now that the floodgates have been opened, I feel....relief. (Although I do have a pouding headache).

From Melanie, in OCF:
11 For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. 12 Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. 13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. 14 I will be found by you," declares the LORD, "and will bring you back from captivity. [b] I will gather you from all the nations and places where I have banished you," declares the LORD, "and will bring you back to the place from which I carried you into exile."

Jeremiah 29:11-1

And from Esther, from HELP:

14For this reason I kneel before the Father, 15from whom his whole family[a] in heaven and on earth derives its name. 16I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, 17so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, 18may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, 19and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.

20Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, 21to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.

Ephesians 3:14-21

So many times I've told myself not to "box up" God. And yet, every single time I am met by adversity, and I bring myself back to Him, I am again astonished by how I will never, ever be able to fathom His greatness, His love, & His merciful grace. How insignificant I am, and yet this God, this omnipotent being, has chosen to love ME. HE chose ME!!!!

My brother told me, that I would find God in Adelaide. I laughed when he told me that he was surprised to find God in Kansas. That somehow he thought he wouldn't find God anywhere other than KL. And look at me! Did I think that my God was so small, He wouldn't be able to find me here? That He wouldn't be able to touch me, or speak to me?

There are so many questions unanswered. So many things I want to find out. Sometimes, I wish I could just KNOW the answers. But nothing in this life comes easy. And I know that God cares more for the building of my character than He does for the actual result.

And I pray, for more strength, for more courage, for more wisdom, and for a whole lot of patience. And I pray, that you will pray this with me. That I may come to know my Maker. To know what it is, to truly be a child of God. To have a living, active relationship with my Father, my Friend. That I may rediscover this relationship, and fall in love with Him over and over again.

1 Hear my prayer, O LORD;
let my cry for help come to you.

2 Do not hide your face from me
when I am in distress.
Turn your ear to me;
when I call, answer me quickly.

Psalm 102:1-2
