for auld lang syne, my dear...

2009 was a good year. there were tough times, yes. but its promise of making one stronger and wiser can only hurt as much. no bleeding.

a whirlwind of some nothingness that i can never muster any regret for. each experience is bound to teach you something, as many would say.

i've also made a lot of new friends this year (mostly via twitter) and i'm staying hopeful for each connection. the rekindled ones are always priceless.

here's to another year of more love, family, friends, peace, happiness, prosperity and tons of priceless countless blessings!

...we'll take a cup of kindness yet, for auld lang syne.

a blissful 2010 be upon you and your family!

God bless!

keep the ones who truly care about you for they will be there no matter what, come hell or high water.
have more hope.
be a good friend. be a damn great friend!
always always carry an extra pocketful of sunshine. it might be useful to somebody else.

forgive and forget but don't forget why you're here

if you don't know me very well, i pretty much grew up in the church. going church is part of my system. there are weeks that if i don't go, i don't function as well as i normally do...and would really feel awkward about it. going to church is something that my insides would, believe it or not, crave.

i had a quite rough night at church last night, duty wise. lots of miscommunication was going on between me and the coordinators. stuff that they should've informed me of and didn't. it got me really upset...and pissy! i will not bore you with the details. keep reading...

they asked me ON THE SPOT to do the benediction song since i already have a song prepared anyways. bleh. i sang this song...

i was still in a pissy mood when i started singing. when i got the chorus part, my brain went into multitask mode. in my head i was like "hold on. what am i doing? i am not up here singing for my glory. i'm up here because of Him. this song needs to be delivered to inspire souls."

after the service, two people, that i don't know, came up to me and told me how much it has become a blessing for them to hear the song. it blew my mind. that DOES NOT happen to me a lot.

"be strong in the Lord and never give up hope
you're gonna do great things, I already know
God's got His hand on you so don't live life in fear.
forgive and forget but don't forget why you're here."

i forgot to be inspired by the words that were coming out of my mouth. He sure does have a funny way of teaching us a lesson. He has never spoken to me like this. NEVAAARRR! it was as if He was telling me "hey, mm. what's with the attitude? there's is someone out there who needs to hear this message. i've chosen you to carry this out to that person. you've been asking for a purpose. well here it is." it is refreshing to be reminded of what i already know in the most awesome-est way.

be a blessing even if the water is neck deep. who knows who's life you'll touch today?

philippians 1:6 "there has never been the slightest doubt in my mind that the God who started this great work in you would keep at it and bring it to a flourishing finish on the very day Christ returns."

not an insult

be true to yourself no matter what. that's the only thing that matters. do not succumb to people's judgment. if they are not feeling you, so what? you will never compromise your being you just to fit in. trust me, there are people who will always love you for who you are. surround yourself with them.

being different is awesome.

10 Biblical Truths That Shaped Worldviews

In a generation marked by relativism the public arena is filled with differing views on the largest issues of our time. The primary source from which we draw our worldview defines where we stand and why. The following are 10 biblical truths that shape my worldview:

1. Every human being has innate dignity: Genesis 1:27 "So God created man in His own image."

2. Life is to be valued from the womb: Psalm 139:13 "You knit me together in my mother's womb."

3. A nation that honors God will prosper but a nation that turns its back on God will not: Proverbs 14:34 "Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a disgrace to any people."

4. Image without character comes up short: I Samuel 16:7 "Man looks at the outward appearance but the Lord looks at the heart."

5. We make an eternal investment when we tend to the poor: Proverbs 19:17 "One who is gracious to a poor man lends to the Lord, and He will repay him for his good deeds."

6. We are nurturing God's handiwork when we protect the earth: Genesis 1:1 "In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth."

7. We must stand against injustice wherever it is found: Amos 5:15 "Hate evil, and love good and establish justice."

8. Possessions alone will never satisfy the heart of man: Luke 12:15 " on guard against all kinds of greed; a man's life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions."

9. Love has the power to heal a broken world: John 3:16 "For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life."

10. Death is not the final word: Isaiah 25:8 "He will swallow up death for all time."

The Scriptures tell us that it is in seeking first the Kingdom of God that we properly prioritize everything else. The issues that we face on a global and personal level demand that our convictions and actions be based in something more than subjectivity. The question that will define us more than any other is upon what do we base our worldview.

Rev. Bill Shuler is pastor of Capital Life church in Arlington, Virginia.

a thankful heart is not only the greatest virtue,
but the parent of all other virtues.

it is thanksgiving weekend here in canadaland. canadians celebrate it on the second monday of october. we're not really big on thanksgivings in this household. the reason behind it is, i guess, we grew up learning to be thankful for whatever every single day...not only for A day.

every year there's that inevitable thanksgiving question that makes you think of the cliches and the specifics. "what are you thankful for?"...a good question to ponder upon and eventually force your mind to play flashbacks of your amazing year. good times or bad, it is something to be humbled about. everything happens for a reason...ripples of reasons. clear reasons that only the highest power can provide. and by highest power, i mean God.

what am i thankful for?

my generous family.
amazing friends.
amazing new found friends.
ability to create.
places to see.
food on my table.
roof on my head.
socks to keep my feet warm.

happy thanksgiving!

what are you thankful for?

a long time ago, God described His people like this, "you've seen a lot, but looked to nothing. you've heard everything, but listened to nothing to nothing." (isaiah 42:20) that may still be a good description for many of us today. maybe the reason we have stopped really listening is that the message of the loudest voices seems, at best, trivial and, at worst, debilitating. the message of our culture is competitive. for many of us, the message in our home is critical, and the message of the enemy is coercive. is there a voice out there that is really worth listening to?

we believe that there is. it's a voice that comes with creative energy and echoes down through generations. it's the voice of a father, the first father. it's the voice of a friend, a true friend. it's the voice of a lover, a faithful lover. it's a voice from home, our eternal home.

--ffh and rich stevenson

without hearing that audible voice from God, we don't have any identity. we have no way to function. "pay attention, come close now, listen carefully to my life-giving, life nourishing words. i'm making an everlasting covenant with you." (isaiah 55:3)

He wanted us to identify with him and understand that we're His creation...that we are worth something.

all that He asks of us is that we listen.

hump day 5 #2

2nd edition of hump day 5. shoot!

  • US OPEN! if you're following me on twitter, you twitter feed was probably flooded with #usopen tweets from me whenever a match was on. pardon me. i play tennis vicariously through those amazing players. i enjoyed the legendary "upsets" a lot. melanie oudin brought the first wave of upsets. then she let kim clijsters and juan martin del potro deliver the rest of them. i now wonder where have all these bandwagoners have gone? hmmm....

  • the serena williams meltdown. that was something i didn't expect to see from an athlete such as her. if only she's smart enough to just kept on with trying to survive the hell hole that kim clijsters has managed to put her in, we could've seen a third set in that semis match. as for the other recipient of the "WTF?! moment" award, kanye west. meh. i could care less about him. that guy has "douchebag" written all over his birth certificate. i just hope he notices that his hip-hop pals are now listening to country music. classy, that taylor swift is.
  • babies! baby joey daniel is here! congratulations to the lovable and adorable ibarras! God bless!

    here is walker nathaniel diggs too. seriously, taye...let me carry your 2nd!

  • rip patrick swayze. sadly, death has put baby patrick in his corner. goodnight, lover boy.

  • the annual broadway on broadway took place last sunday. i soooo want to attend one. must plan another summer trip to NYC that would perfectly go well with the US open dates. oh and check this out. jennifer damiano accidentally drops the C word at the 00:23 mark. aaron tveit is droolage.

next week, these 5 will be all about my tv shows. fall season, here we go!

Serena Williams cursing at the lines person

serena williams cursing at a lines person.

"i swear to god i'm gonna fucking take this ball and shove it into your fuckin face(?). do you hear me? i swear...."

i don't know the rest. it's difficult to hear. you can hear the bleeps though.

i love how they do not tolerate this kind of sportsmanship and attitude in the US open. it's a shame that serena lost due to a violation and not coz kim clijsters REALLY swooped her tush to the max that it got to her mind and totally ruined her game.

hump day 5 #1

i've decided to start a weekly segment for my blog. it'll be called "hump day 5" ....whaddayathink? it is going to be about my top 5 favorite things for the week and will only be blogged on wednesdays. something to look forward to every week eh?

and go...

  • GLEE is officially here! zomg! but to tell you the truth, if it weren't for matthew morrison and lea michele, i won't be watching this show (ssshhhh). but bleh what do i know? it's a ryan murphy show. try it. it's a fun and entertaining show. IT'S NOT GODDAMN HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL!

  • rick rolled! katie (@pibby) and i has been rick rolling each other with this video. i don't know about you but we find it hilarious. julie atherton anybody? come on!

  • #yegdonair. finally! my first official tweetup with some of edmonton tweeps. yay! we met at this donair place in the millwoods area and indulged in some goodness. first time that we all tried a donair poutine too. it was epic! and also happy beer nicki! looking forward to more #yegdonair tweetups with you guys...specially now that i know none of us are ax murderers.

  • the US open. kim clijsters is back yo! her comeback story is just amazing. she's a mom now. oh and melanie oudin (in picture)? that kid sure has something! would've really enjoyed seeing her battle it out with serena williams in the finals. too bad wozniacki prevented that from happening in the quarterfinals. oudin's story was serena's back in 1999...well almost...coz serena ended up taking home the trophy. legendary.

  • i'm obsessing with the HAIR revival cast recording - need i say more? gavin creel singing "manchester england" and "i got life" is pure as will swenson's version of "donna."

stay put for the next batches of hump day 5 in the coming weeks.

living arrangements arrangements.

if you are living with relatives that are not used to have you around...or even hardly remotely talk to, strive to make nice to them.

here's a guideline for harmonious living:

  • suck up! - suck up to the one that is not related to you by blood (your uncle's wife or your aunt's husband). they can and will say anything against you. your blood relative will always be your relative. the in-laws, no. they can kick you out whenever they want and for whatever reason. so yeah, suck up to the one who is in no way related to you by blood and your golden.
  • respect - respect their house norms and their so-called "routine". don't act like it is them who has to adjust to you. it's YOU who needs to adjust to them. so if they're watching tv and you felt the need to sing, expect them to turn up the volume and prompt yourself to shut the fuck up. the volume is your cue to shut vocal chords.
  • help out - help around the house without being told. do some chores. it's bad enough that they're feeding you and letting you stay with them for free. do your fucking part! at least water the plants...or wash that coffee cup YOU used.
  • be considerate - since you're staying for free. help conserving the use of utilities. it's recession season. time's have changed. we get charged for every goddamn thing.
  • don't expect anything - never NEVER expect anything from them. dude, come on. you're living with them already. what more do you fuckin want?! get killed?
