If you're feeling blue... or green.

What do you get when you get leggy dancers in vintage swimsuit with cute choreography and a backyard and feel-good music?
I think you get your feet tapping to the beat, mouth singing 'yeah yeah yeah' and eyes crinkling with a smile. This chases away all sorts of blue.
So go green!
Earth hour is tmrw, I shall go blog and tweet and facebook all about my experience of saving power during earth hour in my air conditioned room, with 3 lights on (for better vision) and room full of charging electronics with my table full of hairspray bottles.

That was a joke, btw. The blogging and tweeting declaration. I don't even tweet. And I don't use the air conditioner. Just hair conditioner. That smells of oranges. And I drop the orange peels as I'm eating oranges outside the road to help fertilize the trees naturally. I will also drop the piece of paper the policeman gives that says 'FINE for littering; $200' as paper is made out of wood and thus will decompose to fertilize the trees together with my orange peels. I might throw in a coke can too, I'm sure trees will like coke. It's nice and sweet and fizzy. Mother nature must be so proud, isn't this what earth hour is really all about? :)

Heart of worship?

So I was practicing the only song I know on the guitar and it was croaking so bad, my dad came into my room to see if I was depressed or something.
Haha I know right, that's how, uhm, melodious my strumming sounded.
And anyway I was playing heart of worship (gotta start somewhere) and tryna do my quiet time with this song when my dad suddenly walked in and started asking if I was feeling okay and all.
Then he showed me the secrets of strumming and plucking and started grooving off to his own tune. I love hearing my dad play. He makes it seem so effortless!
Not a moment too soon, my brother came into the room and he was like 'Wow you sound so good now' but realized a split second l8r that it was my dad playing the guitar, not me. HAHAHA then he went something like 'Oh no wonder it sounds so nice' and walked out of the room. Thanks shawn, thanks.

I'm gonna practice this song until Jesus asks me to stop because I play too horribly or my fingers bleed from the metal strings or I fall into a deep sleep as my fingers are still strumming 'down, up, down, up, up, down, up'

When the music fades, all is stripped away.

New wineskin for new wine

Is 43:19
Behold, I will do a new thing,
Now it shall spring forth;
Shall you not know it?
I will even make a road in the wilderness
And rivers in the desert.

New mindset, new thinking, new heart.
Lord, do Your will in my life.

One sign at a time

A designer was going to get his haircut when he saw the barber's sign on the door.
After getting his hair cut, he did up a new sign for the barber.

He's making the world a more beautiful place!
Haha you know what to do next time you get a hair cut ;)

Forgiveness and love

Imaging you far away/ Searching for the words to say/ I feel you when you fall apart/
Our lives are our greatest art.

I don't want to change your mind/ Cause I accept you for everything you are and will be/
Stay here with me now.

The only thing that our hearts are made of/ Are the acts of forgivness and love/
The only thing real when push comes to shove/ Are the acts of forgiveness and love/
Cause in the end no one loses or wins/ The story begins again and again.

You don't have to read my mind/ You can see it when you close your eyes/

Don't believe it when you lose your faith/ Another moment is a moment away.

I can't tell you what the future holds/ Or how to live/
All I know is what feels right light up my life again and again.

Note: Don't normally listen to Miley much but just heard this song and some songs just speak to you, y'know?
