23-05-10 (Sunday) "First to throw a stone"

"... 'If any one of you is without sin, let him be the first to throw a stone at her.' "
~ John 8:7

I find that very true. I find it so easy to be finding faults in people, to judge them for what they've done, how they've behaved. Its almost EFFORTLESS! And then this verse comes to me.

*Quack Quack, Quack!*
translated: "Stop taking pictures, I tell you!"

How easy it is for anyone to find faults in me for all the things I'VE done too. But noooOOoo.... Often (Pretty much all the time) they opt NOT to do it. Or they bring it out in a constructive way. I wish I could say the same for myself.

translated: "I SAID... STOP TAKING PICTURES!!!! "

Don't you agree that this world would be such a peaceful place if we stopped pointing fingers at others and start examining OURSELVES when a moment arises that tempts us to judge others? Our self-examination would more than suffice to shut us up, done honestly. Quarrels would diminish, strife would cease, anger would fade away. Ahhh... bliss...

16-05-10 (Sunday) "I've Missed You."

I've missed you.

I miss the days back in Malaysia,
When I see you every day, literally.
Sometimes, from the very moment I open my eye ah,
I can feel you already. No, really!
(Sounds very "Avatar"-ish but its okay lah)

I miss the days when I didn't have to work so much,
When you were always by my side, making me glow.
Then, I came over to Aus, you increasingly elude my clutch,
I remember having to run miles, a few days ago,
just to see a glimpse of you, to feel your touch.

Many of the other girls hate you to the core
And I can fully understand why.
You make me wet and sticky and sometimes want more
"There're some things money can't buy"
Some, like you, that I just adore.

Your appearance always made me feel good
To give me assurance that my work was gold
You were there when some things get misunderstood
You were there when I was scared, albeit a bit cold
Back home, you were always there, whenever you could

I miss you more and more as it gets colder, this season
Its been quite a while since we last met
I think of you when I play sports, such as badminton
I think of you in the sunshine, where on the grass, I sat
I think of you even when there is no reason!

... I've missed you sorely, my dear, my sweat.

:) Come on... I'm sure you never saw that coming.
Hope it brightens up your day! =D

09-05-10 (Sunday) "A Subway Post"

While at work at Subway a few weeks ago, my colleague, Joel Arthur, said some words of wisdom without realizing it.

While cleaning up the serving unit, Joel came over to check on my progress and noticing some stuff left behind, he asked me to clean it some more, saying, "Its not that its not clean. Its just that the cleaner it is, the more obvious these small little dirt and leftover stuff are."

Now, isn't there just so much truth packed in that statement? Think of it applied to our lives too! When we start cleaning up the acts in our lives, we can't neglect those small things that still stain it. Once the major bits are cleaned up, the small faults in us just become all the more obvious, don't they?

Now take that for some all-in-a-day's-work wisdom!

For those of you who like taking pictures
and would like to practise your smiles,
I recommend working as a Sandwich Artist at Subway.
All that "Cheese?" surely helps train up your smile. :D
