With only a week left until I'm twenty, I think that maybe it's about time that I wrote this to you. Maybe twenty seems old to you and I'll admit that I've never imagined myself at this age. I think that I was sixteen for so long that I kinda got stuck there which meant … Continue reading Things You Should Know (From One Teenager to Another)
Times have been tough and I just wanted to share one of my favourite passages with you. A lot of people go to the Psalms but I always find myself coming back here when I'm ready to lie down and give up: My soul still remembers And sinks within me. This I recall to my … Continue reading Then I Remembered…
Sadly this week I haven't had time to do the photo challenge so I'm posting one from about a month back if you'll forgive me. Here is my contribution to the family theme: Not the best photo ever but it's only the beginning of the year. I hadn't realised what a motley crew we … Continue reading Family
I just wanted to say I'll leave it to your capable imaginations which one was me at eleven o'clock when my brother came home with a bunch of friends -_- Nevertheless it was an alright New Year. Hope you all enjoyed it. And remember it. The past year has been a hard one in a … Continue reading Happy New Year!
I know it's late but I'm just so elated that I've finally finished my last essay for this semester that I'm probably not going to sleep too soon. It is so good to have the work completed and completed on time. Unless you already know the feeling it just can't be explained. The funny thing is that it's even … Continue reading Satisfaction Indeed

It's been a real blessing to me over this last year and just as my best friend shared it with me, I'm passing it on to you guys. We're … Continue reading #SRT Come Join Us at Advent!
I wrote this poem a while ago but I kept it quietly in my notebook because I felt that the words were given to me as comfort in a difficult time rather than pretty lyrics for show. It doesn't have a title because there isn't really one which springs out for it. When We Were Young … Continue reading Down by the Shore
In the early light, the mist begins to clear and I can make out the shapes of their conical hats. Woven baskets, already beginning to fill hang heavy on their hips as they bend and straighten, bend and straighten. Except that the older ones are no longer able to stand as tall as they once … Continue reading The Call
Hello lads! There's a song going round my head. It has been pestering me a little but the words are very good though they're simple so I thought I'd share it. The title escapes me: bukan dengan barang fana Not with temporal things kau membayar dosaku You paid for my sins; dengan darah yang mahal with expensive blood tiada noda dan celah without stain or blemish. bukan dengan emas perak Not with silver … Continue reading A Simple Song
Full many a flower is born to blush unseen, And waste its sweetness on the desert air... ~Thomas Gray We talk about Doing Hard Things. Then we talk about doing Big Hard Things and Small Hard Things. It came to me, in my grandmother's weary sigh, that spending time with her is what we call … Continue reading Sweetness Not Wasted
