Friends, Feelings and Frustration


7th. SKR (closed). Damansara Utama. PJ Hills. Damansara Utama. KL Railway Station. Mid Valley. Dawn!

Two quarts. Rum and Raisin, Gold Medal Ribbon. Pralines and Cream, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough.

Two pints. Rum and Raisin, Love Potion #31. Rainbow Sherbet, Hokey Pokey.

Home.


Speaking of Dawn, my 'twin', I've had an interesting history with the Econica Five (for sake of reference only; they don't call themselves that).

Pleasant surprises, like meeting Jane in the LRT on the way to Bukit Jalil.

Spur-of-the-moment adventures, like Eastern Promises and chocolate sundaes with Kat.

Unlikely partnerships, like planning the Convo Celebration with Pik Tze.

And then some of life's most enduring lessons. C.S. Lewis said God's favourites have had sometimes to go through darker days than others. Adele, you must be one of them.

It smiled at us. We had to.


And then there are moments of truth that strike you when you least expect them to. Moments when your calling becomes crystal clear before the next fog tries again to hide it.

As Bono said, "Ball in back of net. Last minute of extra time."

I've never seen 'ecologists' wearing lab coats in the 'field', but that was what Suzanne and Yng Yng did on the last day of their Biology Practical classes.


What you don't have you don't need it now...

--U2, 'Beautiful Day'


They say I need to move on, to discover new things and new people in new ways.

That is what they say.


Don't try this after 7.00 a.m.

I shared a French Kiss with Shannon on Tuesday. It was sweet and I had to do some creative sucking towards the end.


This girl again.

* * * * *

Oh gaze of love so melt my pride
That I may in your house but kneel
And in my brokenness to cry
Spring worship unto Thee

--Jars of Clay, 'Hymn'


I have a theory, that the best cure for pride is to remember God's sovereignty, and the best cure for envy is to remember God will tell us each our own stories.


Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.

--Romans 12:19 (KJV)


Easier said than done.
