Food for Thought

William temple, archbishop of Canterbury 1942-44

"Worship is the submission of all of our nature to God.

It is the quickening of conscience by His holiness.

Nourishment of mind by His truth.

Purifying of imagination by His beauty.

Opening of the heart to His love.

And submission of will to His will and purpose.

And all of this gathered up in adoration is the greatest of human expressions of which we are capable."

Making a point

I spent two hour writing a post. Towards the end, I find that the points I was trying the make were rather contradicting.

So I deleted the whole post.

Anyway, here's a picture I took with Instagram today!

 Hope you're having a good weekend so far! :)

Back on Track

Of late I have been having this nagging feeling to start writing again. Some of you might know, I was in college to be a trained writer (I was trying to be fancy. Really I meant that I did journalism). Writing was something I find myself to be relatively good in since primary school. Also as an extrovert, I find writing (or talking) allows me to express- an avenue for me to pour my feelings.

Of course, along the way I've gotten distracted. There's the new job (Yes, I have ANOTHER new job now!) which is huge blessing from God. It is a steep learning curve for me, therefore I have found myself in situations where I will think about work first thing in the morning and it is also the last thing at night before falling asleep.  At times I work weekends, so it was hard to sit down and actually pen down my thoughts because I'll be exhausted.

As I was talking to a dear colleague about this, she said something which I thought was interesting. She said I maybe going through quarter-life crisis. I think there is some truths in that. As I am turning 25 this June, maturity is what I want to see myself progress in while keeping a positive and almost child-like outlook in life. Writing meant a lot to me, so is journaling my quiet time with God, spending time mentoring a young church member, exercising, missions and photography. I want to travel and see the world, particularly Europe for myself. Some years were wasted in the first quarter and I want to make the best out the rest that I have. I don't know how many more years ahead, I just want to make it count this time.

Running the race a little differently this time. Will run it purposefully and not just running for the sake of running it.

And because I cannot stand having a blogpost without a picture, here's a picture taken with my iPhone last month during my church's youth camp. It's one of those rare times I think iPhone photos are better than my DSLR's.

Tech savvy

I've always had this app on my iPhone since June last year, I mean the Blogger app, apparently allows me to blog right off my phone. Since insomnia came to visit again, I thought I'd give it a try.

So to test this out, I am going to publish a random photo from my phone.

I unearthed my old Nokia today as I was clearing my desk. That tough cookie was stuck with me for almost 3 years, although in between I used a cool O2 Atom Exec. Cool during it's time, anyway.

I shall put that away in the museum.
